We focus on cleaner fuels and a safer environment for our children.
To reduce bus emissions, extend the life of the fleet, and save districts money.
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.

What Our Clients Say
“In the future, i plan on reaching out to you for advice and guidance as i try and best represent the people of the 14th Congressional District. I value the work you do in the local community and want to partner so we can accomplish great things together.”
“I admit I was a complete skeptic when first approached with your â€œHigh Performance Clean Dieselâ€ fuel claims of a promised 10% improvement in MPG. After personally testing the fuel and collecting the data, I was surprised and pleased with the outcome of our test that showed an average improvement of over 11+% in MPG among other noticeable benefits. While the 11+% fuel savings was our impetus for choosing HPCD fuel, the biggest benefit we are now realizing is the clean fuel itself. With the old standard diesel fuel, we were having many issues with the regeneration process on our new buses. We were servicing the particulate filters on the buses frequently. When that happens the bus is out of service and it causes all kinds of problems in our daily operations. Since the change to your clean HPCD fuel, the regeneration issues and the particulate filters have been almost a non-issue, and this is significant to me. Our operation is running more smoothly, downtime has been dramatically reduced, and there are no black smoke issues with the buses. After a strong recommendation to our Board, we are happy to run our fleet on HPCD fuel and participate in the Clean Fuels for Schools Initiative.”
“I have had the opportunity to review the 18-month City of Dublin diesel fuel summary report prepared by EcoChem Alternative Fuels, covering the period from June, 2011 through the end of the 2012 calendar year. All of the initial data used to prepare this report was supplied by the City of Dublin and was gathered using our fuel tracking software. The data and results included in this report are accurate and the summary is an accurate reflection of various steps that were taken during the 18-month period. The City of Dublin recently renewed our contract with EcoChem for the continued purchase of High Performance Clean Diesel (HPCD). We have been extremely satisfied with the results of the fuel and the associated cost savings. Furthermore, we have found the EcoChem staff to be professional, responsive and focused on continual improvement and innovation.”
“With 45% of our emissions in the state of Ohio being vehicle emissions, EcoChemâ€™s ability to impact it by 13% is tremendous. This is a prime example of environmental protection and business not having to be mutually exclusive.”
Cleaner Fuel Burns Better
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.
