Yellowstone National Park

10-plus Years Bio Diesel at Yellowstone National Park

It’s a known fact that Yellowstone National Park was the world’s first established national park.

Less known is the fact that Yellowstone also became the first national park to begin using biodiesel in diesel engines of park vehicles.

Yellowstone National Park Environmental Manager Jim Evanoff said: “We’ve reduced by 500 tons the amount of carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere annually.”
