MarjamOne of the largest building suppliers on the Northeast, Marjam, is converting 28 of its moving trucks to biodiesel fuel from regular diesel. If the pilot program proves successful, the company plans to convert its entire fleet of 500 trucks to the cleaner fuel, a spokesman said.

Officials with the company say converting their fleet to biodiesel is equal to taking about 45 vehicles a year off the road.
