Biofuelling St Davids
31 May 2006
As part of a bid to reduce carbon emissions, a biodiesel fillingstation has been built in St Davids, Wales ñ the UK’s smallest city. Byjoining the city’s Biodiesel Club, people in St Davids can power theircars with eco-friendly fuel, made from recycled vegetable cooking oil.

The biodiesel is being supplied by Sundance Renewables. Their fuel is as biodegradable as sugar and produces less pollution than ordinary diesel, reducing harmful soot particles and sulphur dioxide that causes acid rain. Speaking about the new filling station, Julian Orchard, manager of the Eco-City Project said: ‘Switching to biodiesel will really help protect the planet. Climate change is probably the greatest environmental threat that is facing mankind and so we need to reduce our carbon emissions.’
The St Davids Eco-City Project was set up by a group of residents who had become concerned with climate change. They motivate and educate the people living in St Davids and encourage them to take an active role in reducing their own and the city’s carbon footprint. They are also working towards making St Davids the world’s first carbon neutral city.
