On behalf of the Clean Fuels Clean Rivers team, we would like to invite you to attend the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Marine Forum on Friday, October 24, 2014, from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm at the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC), West Hills Campus just outside of Pittsburgh.
There will also be a Pre-Forum Networking Cruise in the evening on Thursday, October 23, 2014 on RiverQuest. The RiverQuest vessel will be departing from the Carnegie Science Center in downtown Pittsburgh. Space will be limited.
The LNG Marine Forum provides an opportunity to learn more about the movement toward conversion of tow boats, ferries, and other similar vessels to compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid natural gas (LNG) that has begun and is under particular consideration for those vessels operating in environmentally sensitive areas. Natural gas offers marine vessels a cleaner burning alternative with significant reductions in particulate matter and greenhouse gas emissions.
Clean Fuels/Clean Rivers is an initiative to build a natural gas marine corridor that extends from the Morgantown area in West Virginia through Pennsylvania, and down the Ohio River to Huntington, WV. The ultimate goal of this effort will be to expand the potential of natural gas as a replacement for diesel fuel to the often overlooked inland waterway system, which encompasses about 12,000 miles of navigable waters.
Panels will include representatives from:
· Fuel Providers/Developers
· Fleet Operators
Keynote address by B. Perry Babb, President, Fleet Energy America, on the Buquebus/Galileo Ferry Project. The presentation will provide insight into ship design, small scale LNG production, and delivery/fueling from this marine LNG success story.
In order to register for the LNG Marine Forum please visit the Clean Fuels Clean Rivers website at www.cleanfuelscleanrivers.com
. Firms are encouraged to exhibit their products and services. If you are interested in being an exhibitors please visit the Clean Fuels Clean Rivers website to reserve a space. Spaces are limited.
We believe this forum will offer a highly rewarding educational and networking experience for all. We look forward to seeing you at the LNG Marine Forum in Pittsburgh this October.
