NORFOLK, Va. – Dynamic Fuels, a 50/50 venture owned by Tyson Foods Inc., has signed an agreement with Mansfield Oil Company to supply renewable diesel to Norfolk Southern Corp, Tyson announced Feb. 14. Norfolk has been using a 100-percent pure Dynamic Fuels renewable diesel at its Meridian, Miss., rail yard since early January, according to Tyson.

Dynamic Fuels and Syntroleum Corporation recently signed commercial off-take and strategic alliance agreements with Mansfield to market renewable diesel to fleet customers. Dynamic Fuels produces renewable and synthetic fuels from animal fats and greases. The company's Geismar, La., plant produces renewable diesel as "drop in" fuel that can replace 100 percent of petroleum diesel in a diesel engine without engine modification.

Norfolk Southern's Norfolk Southern Railway subsidiary operates approximately 20,000 route miles in 22 states and the District of Columbia. It serves every major container port in the eastern US, and provides efficient connections to other rail carriers. Norfolk Southern operates the most extensive intermodal network in the East and is a major transporter of coal and industrial products.
