WASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency here and the National Biodiesel Board, Jefferson City, Mo., announced that they have teamed up to match shippers with truckers using biodiesel fuel in what is called the EPA’s SmartWay Grow and Go program. “The NBB and EPA SmartWay have a long working relationship with the goal of helping the trucking industry adopt renewable fuels to help reduce fuel usage and emissions from burning fuel,” said Mitch Greenberg, program manager, U.S. EPA SmartWay. “Grow & Go was developed to help increase the use and acceptance of biodiesel in the freight industry, and to educate truckers and small fleets on the benefits of biofuels.
