Rio Rico featured on Motorweek for use of alt fuel

A Motorweek video showing the Rio Rico Fire District converting grease to clean burning biodiesel for use in its trucks is available on the U.S. Department of Energy Web site at:

The video aired on Motorweek on June 24.

Tucson Clean Cities helped coordinate the project, which was extended to Mexico as part of a bi-national effort to clean up grease and move toward the use of sustainable fuels, and would like to thank the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality for providing funding and assistance to complete this project.
