Washington, D.C.- Today, Congressman Sires visited Innovation Fuels, Inc a bio-diesel manufacturing plant in Newark, New Jersey. Congressman Sires met with the staff of Innovation Fuels, Inc and took a tour of the plant with members of Moveon.org to learn about the manufacturing of bio-diesel.
Biodiesel cuts exhaust emissions- minimizing black smoke, odor, and greenhouse gas emissions, air toxins, and particulates. As biodiesel does not contain sulfur, there are no sulfur dioxide emissions that lead to acid rain. Since arriving to the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Sires has been a champion in protecting our environment and pushing clean energy solutions, and he will continue to promote and support sound environmental legislation.
