ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- NATSO and its Alternative Fuels Council are offering a “master class” on introducing alternative fuels.
NATSO, the national association for travel centers and truckstops, will be holding the “Renewable Fuels Master Class” on Feb. 11 at its NATSOConnect2019 conference and trade show, which takes place Feb. 10-13 in Orlando, Fla. The workshop, co-hosted by NATSO and its AlternativeFuels Council, will discuss blending and selling renewable fuels such as biodiesel and ethanol. Speakers include Jeff Hove, fuel specialist for the Alternative Fuels Council, and Ginger Laidlaw, compliance specialist, who will introduce attendees to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs); discuss how to market RINs; supply options; blending logistics; and how to ensure fuel quality.
“This renewable fuels marketing workshop will explain how to successfully incorporate alternative fuels into supply offerings,” said Hove. “This comprehensive session will offer a step-by-step guide for understanding and capitalizing on the opportunities that exist today, from the biodiesel tax credit to Renewable Identification Numbers to state-specific incentives.”
David Fialkov, vice president of government affairs for NATSO, will talk about the state of the renewable fuels market, with a focus on policy issues such as the status of the biodiesel blender’s tax credit and how the recent series of small refinery waivers issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are affecting the biofuels market.
The Alternative Fuels Council will also provide a demonstration of its RIN Management software, which offers real-time management of RINs, a transaction record RIN account reconciliations.
