We are beyond excited to share some groundbreaking news with our community. In our continued mission to prioritize sustainability, Arrow Stage Lines has taken a monumental step forward. We’re switching our entire fleet in Nebraska to run on biodiesel! 🍃
Strong Partnerships for a Sustainable Future
Our commitment to a greener tomorrow has been strengthened by partnering with the prestigious University of Nebraska and the dedicated Nebraska Soybean Board. Together, we’re pioneering a movement towards sustainable transportation in the Cornhusker State.
If you’ve been to a University of Nebraska Athletics event recently, you might have spotted our buses proudly displaying the logo “Team Bus Powered by Biodiesel”. But here’s the BIG news – it’s not just the University team buses. Every single Arrow Stage Lines bus operating in Nebraska will now be powered by this incredible fuel!
For those unfamiliar, biodiesel is a remarkable, clean-burning fuel made primarily from U.S. soy oil, among other renewable resources. Here’s why we chose biodiesel for our Nebraska fleet:
Performance: Biodiesel offers fuel economy, horsepower, and torque that’s on par with conventional petroleum diesel.
Eco-Friendly: It has considerably fewer harmful effects on diesel engines, the environment, and human health.
Economic Impact: Adopting biodiesel reduces our reliance on foreign oil, stimulates the U.S. economy, and supports tens of thousands of jobs.
Boost to Soybean Farmers: The usage of biodiesel adds a significant 63 cents per bushel to the value of soybeans. Moreover, it brings down soy protein meal prices by $20 – $40/ ton.
Health and Environment: Biodiesel substantially reduces particulate matter by 47%, curtails smog, and overall makes the air around us healthier to breathe.
Additionally, biodiesel proudly stands as an Advanced Biofuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard, a testament to its eco-friendliness and efficiency.
Supporting Local and Thinking Global
This shift to biodiesel helps bolster more than 60,000 jobs across the U.S. and results in an impressive $2.6 billion in wages. Every journey with Arrow Stage Lines in Nebraska is now not just a travel experience but a stride towards a sustainable future.
