Pembrokeshire Plant Oil for Transport - Phase II
The project uses SDF money to fund 50% grants towards the costs of converting vehicle diesel engines to run on straight vegetable oil (SVO). Each converted vehicle has a bilingual sign to indicate they have been converted to run on SVO in order to promote awareness of the renewable, carbon neutral fuel. Project projections were to convert 30 local diesel vehicles per year over the period April 2006 to March 2009. The grants are open to permanent residents of Pembrokeshire and also people residing on the fringes of the county who either work in Pembrokeshire or spend a good deal of time in the county doing business or accessing services. An intended outcome will be to make Pembrokeshire a Centre of excellence in the UK in sustainable biofuel based transport in a way that benefits the local economy
