Tuzla long suffered from a reputation of being one of the most polluted cities in Bosnia, but an innovative initiative is helping reverse that label. Biodiesel, a locally-produced “greener” fuel — which began life as waste frying oil collected from a local pastry manufacturer — is now being used in the town’s municipal buses. The bus company is also monitoring emissions to evaluate the social and environmental benefit from replacing mineral diesel with cleaner biodiesel fuel.
