UK: Local authority fleets could help fight ‘fatberg’ problem

Hackney borough council is hoping to be able to use a B20 or B30 blend of biodiesel on part of its 170-strong LCV fleet by the end of 2015.

However, that depends on the viability of getting a van manufacturer that is happy to entertain a biodiesel blend.

Norman Harding, corporate fleet manager at the London Borough of Hackney, will be renewing the leased fleet shortly, but admits most manufacturers aren’t persuaded.
