ETHANOL-BLENDED DIESEL DEMONSTRATION AND PRESS CONFERENCE SCHEDULED AT NATIONAL ETHANOL CONFERENCE IN LAS VEGAS

The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) today announced that a demonstration of ethanol-blended diesel (e-diesel) will be held in conjunction with the 6th Annual National Ethanol Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Monday, February 19th at 2:30 p.m. PT.

Diesel powered trucks will provide a real-world, first-hand demonstration of ethanol's ability to clean up diesel emissions, including particulate matter (soot), carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur. Representatives from diesel fleet operators, the ethanol industry, and diesel additive suppliers will be available to discuss how ethanol can dramatically reduce diesel fuel emissions while increasing performance. E-diesel is being developed as a cost-effective method for meeting diesel emissions regulations (such as the pending low-sulfur regulations) necessary to comply with air quality standards under the Clean Air Act.

Las Vegas is the site of a long-running e-diesel test project involving the Clark County Health District and over 20 diesel trucks from local fleets. The Las Vegas e-diesel test has been an outstanding success for more than a year.

Other e-diesel tests include city buses in Lincoln, NE and Joliet and Chicago, IL; Mack trucks in Chicago, IL; John Deere farm equipment and a Ford pickup in central Illinois; and, Caterpillar loaders and beverage delivery trucks in New York, NY.
