Use of Biodiesel Power Spreads to Snow Grooming Machines
North Conway, NH— Cranmore Mountain Resort, a family winter resort, announced it is switching to biodiesel, an environmentally friendly fuel, to power all of its snow grooming machines. The Cranmore Mountain biodiesel project is a collaboration between Cranmore, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, and the Granite State Clean Cities Coalition, a public/private partnership of 50 stakeholders statewide dedicated to increasing the use of alternative fuels in the state of New Hampshire. The fuel is being provided by World Energy of Chelsea, Massachusetts, a provider of biodiesel in the U.S. Cranmore is the first Eastern winter resort to adopt this alternative fuel.
Biodiesel is a renewable, non-toxic biodegradable replacement for petroleum diesel that reduces the visible emissions tremendously providing cleaner air for employees and guests. It can be made from plant and animal sources, from soy oil to grease and reduces greenhouse emissions. Biodiesel has a higher lubricity than old-fashioned diesel, improving operation cleanliness resulting in less wear and tear on the snow grooming machines.
