Union County Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski (R), Mitchell Supreme Fuel Co. President Deborah Berna Fineman and New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Commissioner Joseph Fiordaliso announce Union County’s conversion to biofuel in its heavy duty vehicles and other equipment at the Ash Brook fueling station in Scotch Plains. The new fuel, consisting of 5% biofuel and 95% diesel, is expected to help lower greenhouse gas emissions from county work vehicles at Ash Brook, and will serve as a pilot project for other county operations. Mitchell Supreme is the biofuel supplier.
