The National Biodiesel Board and Kentucky Soybean Board joined forces to exhibit at the MATS event, where thousands of truckers and industry stakeholders flocked to the booth this year to see the the new biodiesel-powered motorcycle built by Orange County Choppers, and to learn about the use of biodiesel blends in their heavy-duty trucks.
Truck makers Volvo and Mack confirmed their B20 approval at the 2012 MATS event. With these two additions, about 65-70 percent of diesel vehicle manufacturers in the U.S. market support B20 or higher biodiesel blends.
