Workshop will examine alternative fuels
May 24, 2011 11:33 AM
Transportation professionals are invited to learn about the capabilities of propane autogas and other alternative fuels at a free training workshop hosted by the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) and Alternative Fuels Trade Alliance members.
The New Jersey Clean Cities Coalition and the Greater Philadelphia Clean Cities Coalition will host a workshop June 1, 2011, at the Trenton Marriott Downtown, 1 West Lafayette Street in Trenton NJ. The event runs from 8 am to 3:15 pm. Vehicles fueled by propane autogas and other alternative energy sources will be on display.
The Trenton workshop will conclude a nationwide series of 14 training seminars throughout 2010 and 2011, developed with a $1.6 million grant from the US Energy Department. More than 700 fleet managers have been trained on alternative fuel quality, infrastructure, available vehicles, safety, the latest technologies, and environmental advantages of propane autogas, ethanol, biodiesel, and compressed natural gas during these events.
The Alternative Fuels Trade Alliance comprises PERC, the Renewable Fuels Association, National Biodiesel Foundation, and Clean Vehicle Education Foundation. Each collaborative workshop involves one or more of the Energy Departmentís Clean Cities coalitions, which work to improve air quality and reduce imported petroleum use.
