Earth Day's 40th anniversary celebration turns to biodiesel

By | April 26, 2010
April 22, marked a major milestone in our nation's journey toward environmental protection-the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. To help the event mark four decades, biodiesel played a valuable role in the National Earth Day celebration in Washington.

Event organizers turned to cleaner-burning biodiesel blends to power the generators supporting the extensive festivities. Biodiesel powered through a week-long series of events held on the National Mall to recognize the special occasion. Organized by the Earth Day Network, activities included musical performances, speeches by U.S. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, members of Congress and others, an Eco Village and much more.

NBB staff and contractors facilitated biodiesel use for the event. Biodiesel was also a part of local Earth Day celebrations around the country as NBB members, Clean Cities Coordinators, biodiesel supporters and organizations touted renewable fuel alternatives.
