Date: 2021-08-23
In Omaha, Union Pacific, the country's second largest railroad after BNSF, reports it will boost the biodiesel fuel blend rate in its more than 700 EMD locomotives from the present 5 pct to 20 pct as a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Union Pacific noted the updated fuel blend rate follows comprehensive testing of high-horsepower locomotives and monitoring their fuel consumption, as well as the biofuel blend's impact on engine oil and fuel filters and the environment.
