City of Elmhurst

"Elmhurst is committed to responsible stewardship of its environmental, economic and social resources to ensure the city's exceptional quality of life for current and future generations is maintained and improved. Using B20 in our fleet vehicles has been a simple, seamless way to improve the air in our community: B20 reduces greenhouse gases by up to 86 percent compared to petroleum diesel. The City hopes initiatives like this will inspire and inform others to make a similar commitment."
