RFA Joins John Deere in E-Diesel Test Program

By | March 01, 2002
The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) recently joined John Deere, the National Corn Growers Association, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs, and corn farmers from six states to announce the launch of a 2-year test program on the use of E-diesel. In order to be marketed commercially, E-diesel must be approved by the EPA and must be covered under engine warranties. The two year test project, including both laboratory and field tests, will evaluate fuel performance, materials compatibility, emissions, health effects, safety, engine durability, and storage and handling requirements.
