Alt-Fuel Workshop Set for Texas Nov. 16

November 02, 2010

WASHINGTON - The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), along with other members of the Alternative Fuel Trade Alliance, will hold an alternative fuel workshop in Arlington, Texas, on Nov. 16 from 8 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. 

This free workshop, held at the North Central Texas Council of Government's Transportation Council Room (616 Six Flags Two Building) in Arlington, is part of a seminar series held across the country. The series was made possible by a $1.6 million grant from the Energy Department. 

The workshops cover alternative fuel quality, infrastructure, available vehicles, safety, the latest technologies, and the environmental impact of propane, ethanol, biodiesel and compressed natural gas. 

Each workshop culminates with a ride-and-drive event that gives fleet managers a chance to get behind the wheel of vehicles that run on alternative fuels. 

"Fleet managers eager to respond to customers' growing interest in working with businesses that offer sustainable solutions will see the benefits of propane autogas and other alternative-fuel vehicles," said Brian Feehan, vice president of PERC. "Choosing vehicles fueled by alternative fuels results in fewer harmful emissions and less reliance on imported oil." 

The Alternative Fuel Trade Alliance consists of PERC, the Renewable Fuels Association, the National Biodiesel Board, and the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation. Fuels represented include propane, ethanol, biodiesel and compressed natural gas. 

Each of the full-day collaborative workshops scheduled over the next two years will involve a site in the Energy Department's Clean Cities program, which uses local coalitions to promote the use of alternative fuels.
