Minneapolis Jump Starts Low Sulfur Diesel

The Minneapolis, Minnesota Metropolitan Council’s Transportation Committee approved a plan to switch to ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel for about 400 of Metro Transit’s 867 buses, 18 months sooner than transition required by new federal regulations. In 2006, federal standards will require Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD), which reduces sulfur emissions from the 500 parts per million permitted today to 15 parts per million.

BP Products of North America will provide the ULSD fuel from its Whiting, Indiana refinery.
