Three new snowplows that run on biodiesel will soon be clearing Iowa’s roads.
Grant Kimberley, executive director of the Iowa Biodiesel Board, says the plows run on the blend called B-100, or pure biodiesel.
“We can demonstrate that we can use 100% biodiesel in diesel engines year around,” he says. “Something like this is a great way to showcase that and demonstrate that not only to goverment, state users but also the general public.” Cost at the pump is often a big selling point for consumers.
There are 11 biodiesel plants in Iowa which combined, made about 365-million gallons of biodiesel in 2018. Iowa is the nation’s top biodiesel producer and the fuel supports about 4,700 jobs.
