Biodiesel healthier for miners, tests in mines show

Extensive testing in several mines shows using biodiesel is healthier for miners, reduces emissions and the equipment runs cleaner and thus needs less maintenance.

“Biodiesel emits fewer diesel particulates than conventional fuels, and when used in the underground mining operations, that translates to a safer work environment for our employees” said a mining company VP after three years of using B99 biodiesel in a mine.

  1. It is great news that B99 fuel will be better for the miners, but this just read like the “better health” was an added bonus over the quote about less maintenance on the machinery. I really hope the corporation had it’s workers health in mind when doing the three year test.
