The Greening of Transportation 2: Sustainability via Alternative Fuels

Tuesday October 5, 2010
2:30 - 5:00 pm

Alternative fuels from ethanol and biodiesel to compressed natural gas and electricity are penetrating all transportation modes. Despite the absence of a carbon price, progressive corporations are discovering economic benefits of using alternative fuels for their logistics and transportation operations.

The workshop, presented by the Northwestern University Transportation Center (NUTC) and the Initiative for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISEN), will feature speakers from influential US firms and government agencies sharing their practices in deploying alternative fuels. This venue is an excellent opportunity to hear about the adoption levels of various alternative fuels, the underlying economics, financial risks, and challenges moving forward.

The workshop is open to all interested persons, and no registration is necessary. For more information, contact Diana Marek by phone at 847-491-2280 or by email at d-marek@northwestern.edu.
