Coca-Cola Bottling Limited has teamed up recently with an Oakville-based mobile diesel fuel delivery company to help with its goal of reducing carbon emissions on its delivery trucks.

Coke’s energy transition will see it and Oakville-based 4Refuel Energy test the use of B20 biofuels that are extracted from plants or animals.

All of Coke’s trucks manufactured since 2012 will undergo B20 biofuel testing at 4Refuel’s facilities in Brampton, Richmond, BC, Edmonton and Calgary, AB.

It’s expected some 1400 tonnes of CO2 will be reduced from the use of biofuels in the four markets. The same as taking 300 vehicles off the road and lowering Cokes direct emissions by four per cent.

“We are excited to be partners in sustainability with Coke in their overall initiative to reduce carbon emissions 27.5 per cent by 2030, ” 4Refuel Energy said on its Facebook page. “Their continued steps in sustainable fuel management operations will move them forward to lead the way in the reduction of fleet carbon emissions.

“We look forward to serving and contributing to phased transitions of alternative energy. There is only one Earth. ”

An operation division of Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc., Coca-Cola Bottling and its fleet of 275 vehicles distribute Coke-owned drinks across all of Canada’s provinces.
