New Cross-Border Bio-Diesel Project Converts
Bio49 is a response to the EPA’s “West Coast Collaborative,” an initiative working to reduce diesel air pollution. The project derives its name from the 49th parallel latitude that crosses the U.S-Canada border near Washington state and British Columbia. The EPA grant, along with matching funds totaling $280,000, will be used to launch and fund the Bio49 project for one year.
