Virginia Beach School Buses Make Switch to Biodiesel

Virginia Beach school buses will begin using biodiesel soon.   Six public school systems in Virginia currently use biodiesel commercially, but Virginia Beach Public Schools, which operates over 600 buses, will be the largest fleet.

PAPCO Oil Company will be Virginia Beach Public Schools exclusive biodiesel supplier, WTKR reports.

Every $1,000,000 in Virginia biodiesel consumed creates $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 in economic activity within the state of Virginia, according to the Virginia Biodiesel Refinery.
 
Other users in the state include Arlington County Schools, Gloucester County schools, James Madison University, the City of Harrisonburg and Harrisonburg Public Schools, the University of Virginia, and the City of Charlottesville, the U.S. Air Force, NASA Langley, Valley Proteins, Westmoreland Public Schools, the National Park Service, the US Navy, Portsmouth Public Schools, Yorktown, Newport News, Northumberland Public Schools, James City County, Greater Richmond Transit Company, CTI, Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools, and others.
