The Benefits of Biodiesel Webcast

Learn from experts from Chevron and Cummins Inc.

Chevron and Cummins recently announced a collaborative plan to improve access to alternative and renewable fuels as well as fuel infrastructure for fleets.

In this webcast, hear from Dave Slade, Chief Technologist at Chevron, and Ivan Iazdi, Engine Business Strategy Director at Cummins, as they discuss the benefits of biodiesel and how this lower carbon fuel solution can help reduce lifecycle carbon emissions right now.

Here are key highlights from this webcast.

  • Biodiesel is a standard offering in Cummins North American on-highway engines for past, present and even future products. Biodiesel blends up to B20 have been approved for use in Cummins engines dating back to 2007.
  • Chevron’s high-quality biodiesel can help lower lifecycle carbon emissions and improve engine performance. Biodiesel is a drop in fuel solution that's available today.
  • Biodiesel can be blended at virtually any level with petroleum diesel and renewable diesel.

The world population has grown to nearly 8 billion people and is anticipated to reach 9 billion by 2040. With that growth, global energy demand is expected to increase by 15% in the coming decades.1

Today, more companies are focusing on the environment and demonstrating scalable, lower carbon intensity business practices. They are looking at how lower carbon fuel solutions can help their companies reach lifecycle carbon emission targets and potentially help them gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

As the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, commercial transportation is a critical segment in this paradigm shift.2

Logistics companies and shippers find themselves in the spotlight, tasked with leading the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.3

That means all available fuel solutions will be needed in order to meet the increased demand for affordable energy. Biodiesel is of one those solutions.
