Under the agreement, Wardlaw Fuels delivery trucks will pick up biodiesel from SITTM’s facility in Sault Ste Marie and blend it with petrodiesel for the generation of various blends ranging from B5 to B20, depending on seasonal constraints.

The biodiesel blends will be used for Wardlaw Fuels’ entire fleet of buses.

SITTM is a subsidiary of MSE, and the company establishes collaborative arrangements with distributors of petroleum products to provide a biodiesel blend to public and private customers.

MSE CEO Norman Jaehrling said the recent agreement is for two years commencing in January 2012.

"We expect to roll out similar arrangements with other communities and organizations who share the City of Sault Ste. Marie’s commitment to the environment later in 2012," Jaehrling said.
