The Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC), an alliance of ethanol producers, has joined O2Diesel’s CityHome program. CityHome helps subsidize the adoption of O2Diesel’s ethanol-diesel blend by transit and school bus fleets. (Earlier post.)
EPIC’s goal is to reach consumers and key influencers across the country to promote the benefits of using an ethanol-enriched fuel. EPIC is joining the CityHome program to show that ethanol use is not limited to gasoline.
EPIC will support the CityHome program by integrating E-Diesel information in its global marketing message and promotion programs, and will initially focus on the CityHome initiative in Nebraska and particularly the school bus opportunity.
O2Diesel is an ethanol-diesel blend that uses 7.7% ethanol, with up to 1% proprietary additive and a cetane improver. In addition to cities in the US, two Brazilian cities have begun using O2Diesel in their transit fleets. (Earlier post.)
