August 5, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] State, county and municipal fleets in Nevada have a new bio diesel fuel to choose from because the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) added O2Diesel to the list of approved alternative fuels. Nevada fleets of 10 or more vehicles must use bio diesels instead of fossil fuels. The Nevada alternative fuel law particularly applies to Washoe and Clark counties because they are the two most populous counties in the state. Clark County includes the city of Reno, and the county is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas of the country. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has targeted Clark through stricter emissions requirements because the county isn’t keeping up with federal emissions standards to reduce the area’s effect on the ozone. The NDEP decision was based on the emissions test results that the company submitted to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) last year. O2Diesel is undertaking demonstrations in Nevada of its ethanol-diesel blended fuel in cooperation with the Nellis U.S. Air Force Base in Las Vegas and the Nevada Air National Guard.
