ACT Expo 2016 takes place May 2-5 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California.

Rose will tell how UPS plans to reach its goal of driving 1 billion clean fuel miles by the end of 2017 – and in doing so has already become the largest consumer of RNG/renewable natural gas –biomethane – in the shipping industry. The company recently committed an additional $100 million for hundreds more over-the-road compressed natural gas tractors and a dozen new fueling facilities support them (F&F, March 15).


‘Four Days of Fleet-Focused Education’

The new CNG trucks will complement existing CNG and LNG tractors, CNG and propane autogas package cars, battery electric vehicles, and others making for a total of more than 6,840 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles on the road today. Rose will provide insight into his organization’s top-down commitment to emissions reduction.

ACT Expo will deliver “four days of fleet-focused education on the fuels and technologies driving sustainability on our nation’s roadways.”
