Biodiesel is able to reduce carbon even in the extreme low temperatures combined with heavy snowfall the nation has seen over the month of January, according to Optimus Technologies which offers the Optimus Vector System with an 89% runtime on 100% biodiesel.

The cities of Ames IA, Madison WI, and Washington DC all utilize Optimus Technologies for their snowplows and are adopting 100% biodiesel (B100) as the decarbonization solution for their heavy-duty fleets as part of their commitment to reducing carbon emissions and transitioning towards renewable energy sources today.

Optimus Technologies founder Colin Huwyler says, “The decision to adopt 100% biodiesel for heavy-duty fleets represents a significant step towards environmental sustainability and decarbonization for these communities while supporting local economies and domestically produced fuels. I am thrilled that Optimus can be a critical partner for these leading cities embracing innovative solutions for cleaner transportation.”

The utilization of B100 is contributing to substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, aligning with these cities near and long-term sustainability goals.
