Witchita Eagle. Boeing’s plant in Wichita,Kansas is using a B20 biodiesel blend for its diesel fleet.
Boeing began pumping biodiesel into its storage tanks this week. Now, as equipment runs out of traditional diesel, it is replaced with biodiesel. About 75 tractor-trailers, tow tractors, forklifts, railcar movers and power generators will operate on the new blend.
Boeing adopted the fuel after some employees visited an Alcoa factory in Davenport, Iowa, which has been using the blend for three years. Employees there said the most noticeable change was the smell.
