About this Event

Chicago Area Clean Cities and the B20 Club invite you to join us for a comprehensive program on the health, environmental, and performance advantages of biodiesel-blended fuels as an alternative to traditional diesel fuels. The program will be hosted at the I-55 Truck Plaza and include a site tour with details on the truck stop's biodiesel fuel procurement process, fuel quality maintenance program, and onsite blending procedures.

Chicago-area fleets who are using biodiesel blends of B20 (20% biodiesel/80% diesel) or greater will share their experiences with biodiesel blends and discuss best practices for using biodiesel in temperatures as low as -20°F. Speakers will also highlight the operational and maintenance benefits of using biodiesel blends, especially in newer vehicles with aftertreatment systems.

The final presentation of the day will include a panel-style discussion with the Chicago Park District, National Biodiesel Board, and Optimus Technologies on a bi-fuel system that allows the Park District to operate two refuse haulers on 100 percent biodiesel all year long.

The event is sponsored by Chicago Area Clean Cities, a designated U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Coalition celebrating its 25th anniversary, and the B20 Club, a partnership of the Illinois Soybean Association and American Lung Association that recognizes Illinois fleets operating their fleets on biodiesel blends of B20 or greater.

Any fleet that registers for the event is eligible for free diesel tank testing and a follow-up cleaning session (if needed). All attendees also will be eligible to win a YETI 20 cooler as a door prize.
