Coast park tries out biodiesel on fleet

PEMBROKESHIRE Coast National Park Authority is using biodiesel to power some of its vehicles.

Made from vegetable oil, the biofuel powers three of the park rangers’ Volkswagen Caddy vans and the delivery vehicle for the visitor newspaper.

Each van is marked with graphics of the Pembrokeshire coast and landscape, and carries a ‘100% biodiesel’ logo.

The authority’s biodiesel supplier is Sundance Renewables.

Authority chairman Stephen Watkins said: ‘Biodiesel is a great substitute for ordinary diesel and is environmentally friendly.

‘This authority has taken the lead in green travel initiatives and sustainable solutions and using vehicles powered by biodiesel is an important step in this direction.’
