Boron Ops Has Rio Tinto’s First Renewable Diesel-Powered Truck
This past week, U.S. Borax became the first site across Rio Tinto to trial “renewable diesel” fuel in one of our haul trucks. The green sticker the refitted truck carries on its side represents a breakthrough for Boron Operations, Rio Tinto, and the mining industry.
