Glacier Northwest using biodiesel-blended fuels


Glacier NW website screenshotGlacier Northwest is converting to biodiesel-blended fuels for its fleet of more than 200 concrete mixer trucks, dump trucks and concrete pumps.

The conversion program began March 1. The biodiesel program includes the front-end loaders, dozers and all other diesel-powered equipment at Glacier's 12 ready-mix concrete plants and five aggregate sites across the Portland-Vancouver metro region.

Seattle-based Glacier, which has a Portland office, is the largest supplier of concrete, aggregate and cement in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

The soy-based biodiesel fuel for Glacier's trucks and equipment is provided by Pacific Biofuels, a division of Carson Oil Co. of Portland, and Renewable Energy Group, which operates biodiesel plants in the Midwest.
