TSB Tri-State Biodiesel


Council Member Jessica Lappin, and environmental group Upper Green Side partners with
Tri-State Biodiesel, local businesses to reduce emissions in some of NYC’S most polluted zips.
(NY, NY) - A Health Department report identifying the Upper East Side as home to some of theCity’s worst air shocked many New Yorkers, but not Brent Baker, CEO of Tri-state Biodiesel. “Thecommunity air survey cited the area’s boilers and hot water heaters as principal sources of pollution,”Baker said, “And I am not surprised. Start with the neighborhood’s density of large buildings that burn petroleum-based heating oil, then add high volume car and truck traffic and you get a pretty
toxic mix.” For the coalition, one solution is simple: affordable, biodiesel blended heating oil fuel at competitive prices. Several local companies, including Tri-State Biodiesel (TSB), have been providing this very product to New Yorkers for several years, offering overnight emissions reductions with no change in service or operations. Buildings that replace #2 and #4 heating oil with biodiesel not only reduce air-borne toxins by up to 90% (and green-house gases by up to 85%), but also dramatically cut the percentage of fats and grease deposited in city’s waste-water stream.

TSB’s biodiesel couldn’t be much greener, given that its main ingredient is recycled cooking oil collected from New York City restaurants - including an ever increasing number located on the Upper East Side. This newly-forged partnership includes City Council Member Jessica Lappin, Upper East Side’s environmental organization, Upper Green Side, local business owners, and residents. The group’s mission is to get the word out to UES landlords and co-op boards, including those on Mayor Bloomberg’s block, that switching to biodiesel will result in a significant improvement in local air quality. And, with the switch to biodiesel, the improvements can take place immediately.
“That Health Department report should serve as a lightening rod for community action,” says Michael Auerbach, of Upper Green Side, “and our coalition is determined to make a real impact on an area of obvious need.” He adds, “And we owe it to our kids who are currently breathing polluted air.”

The campaign will formally launch with a March 3rd with a press conference featuring local residents, business owners and elected officials, pledging to work together to improve air quality by the use of biodiesel in the UES and around the city.
