Renewable Diesel Workshops:

New York Regional Renewable Diesel Workshop

Moving Toward: Energy Independence

March 18, 2002
Holiday Inn Turf Hotel
Wolf Road
Albany, New York

The push for cleaner diesel fuels is on. Maybe you've heard about Biodiesel or E-Diesel. Where are they available? At what price? What about performance, specifications, and logistics? Where do you go for more information?

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fuels Development, are hosting this one-day workshop to help you answer these questions and more. This workshop will jump-start your alternative fuel or clean diesel fuel program by putting you ahead of the information curve. Make a note on your calendar!

Cleaner diesel fuels are a high priority in New York. Make sure you're up-to-speed with what is happening here and elsewhere in the U.S.

Public officials, fleet and transportation managers, school bus supervisors, power generators, commercial marine operators, home heating oil distributors and the general public and encouraged to attend. Tell a friend or co-worker about thie unique opportunity.

Sponsored by:

  • U.S. Dept. of Energy, Office of Fuels Development
  • National Renewable Energy Laboratory
  • NY State Energy Research and Development Authority

About the Programs

Renewable Diesel Workshops:
NREL Goals: ..."to educate key public officials and the general public about biodiesel as a transportation fuel" and ..."to build state and local coalitions that would form the nuclei of a support group that would promote and eventually lead to local biodiesel production and use."

Ethanol Producers' Technical Workshops:
Perspectives from ethanol producers, production technology providers, and government researchers. Those in attendance were given the task of exploring the challenges and opportunities presented by combining cellulosic ethanol streams with existing grain streams.

US DOE Ethanol Workshop Series:
A series of one-day, state-level workshops to educate key public officials and the general public about ethanol as a transportation fuel.
