Durham Public Schools earns award

By | December 01, 2004
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) has recognized Durham Public Schools in North Carolina as a National Clean Bus Leader for 2004. The fleet of 325 buses used more than 600,000 gallons of B20-blended diesel during the 2003-2004 school year in a project funded by the Triangle J Council of Governments Clean Cities Coalition. In the 2004-2005 school year, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction will provide funding for the biodiesel.

Durham Public Schools was one of six organizations nationwide honored by the EESI for promoting clean buses. Knoxville Area Transit in Knoxville, Tenn., was also recognized for its biodiesel use, in addition to propane and hybrid-electric technology. Other groups used fuels cells or compressed natural gas in their buses.
