Initiative Objective

Beginning in March, the City of Las Cruces will use a fuel blend containing 20% biodiesel in a majority of its medium and heavy-duty vehicles.  The fuel is produced by Rio Valley Biofuels in nearby Anthony, NM.  The feedstock for the fuel has a high percentage of waste vegetable oil from local restaurants and food processing facilities, making it one of the greenest ways to move vehicles.
