The Initiative

We focus on cleaner fuels and a safer environment for our children.

The Reasons

To reduce bus emissions, extend the life of the fleet, and save districts money.

The Results

Participating Ohio schools have seen lower fuel usage, better bus performance, and dramatic reduction in emissions.

Clean Fuels For Schools Initiative

What is The Clean Fuels For Schools Initiative?

The Clean Fuels For Schools initiative is a public, private partnership developed to assist Ohio schools in developing and integrating new technologies and best practices that improve their energy security, economic stewardship and environmental commitment.

Initiative partners work specifically with schools to embrace a cleaner standard for their fuel storage tanks and the use of new high-performance fuels. This program is offered to Ohio schools with fuel storage and dispensing capability.

Thousands of school buses in Ohio and across the nation emit harmful polluting emissions every day while carrying millions of our children.

School bus fleets use a lot of fuel that they retrieve from onsite storage tanks. This makes it easier to implement upgrades and measure results.

Each school that has adopted this clean fuel program has experienced significant savings and the removal of hundreds of thousands of pounds less of carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide that don’t get emitted from their bus fleets each year.

What Our Clients Say

Cleaner Fuel Burns Better

Dispensed fuel

Recent studies show that the North American fuel supply is contaminated. The supply line consisting of pipelines, transport tanks, and vehicle tanks has become a volatile environment of microbial and other contaminants. The World Wide Fuel Charter states, “50% of all diesel fuel dispensed does not meet the International Standards Organization (ISO) codes for cleanliness”.

Changing The Industry

Industry experts, government policy makers and stakeholders around the world have developed and put into place, energy efficient and clean air initiatives with goals reaching out to 2025 and beyond, but fuel storage and fuel quality are still in a vulnerable state, due to the antiquated and contaminated supply chain. And so a “partnership” was formed to support a statewide initiative to clean up Ohio Schools fuel infrastructure and upgrade it with today’s best technology.
