Pennsylvania School District buses fueled by Biodiesel.

The Great Valley School District in Malvern, Pennsylvania has become the first district in the state to take advantage of free money offered to convert school buses to lower-emission alternative fuels.

The state funded the district's switch to B20 biodiesel, a blend consisting of 20% biodiesel and 80% ultra-low sulfur diesel. All 70 of the district's buses are now using the cleaner fuel.

Working with the Energy Cooperative, a Philadelphia based fuel distributor and educational and advocacy group, the district secured a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for $28,340. The money will offset the cost of an estimated 130,000 gallons of fuel needed this year.
