Idaho Biodiesel Awareness Week


April 16-20th, 2018 was Idaho Biodiesel Awareness Week at the University of Idaho. The University of Idaho wants to be carbon neutral by 2030...but we aren’t doing enough. Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made right here on campus from Sodexo waste cooking oil, which cuts down Greenhouse Gas Emissions by nearly 80% compared to diesel fuel. We need to run all campus diesel vehicles on a biodiesel blend. Check out pictures of what we did for the week below.

Sign our petition to mandate a biodiesel blend in all campus diesel vehicles

The University of Idaho wants to be carbon-neutral by 2030. Mandating clean, campus-made biodiesel fuel in all university diesel vehicles would help us reach that goal. You can still sign our petition here.
