Autogas Research & Technology Center in Asheville, North Carolina
Blossman Services will open its Autogas Research & Technology Center in Asheville, N.C. with a VIP reception on October 17. updated September 30
Blossman is the exclusive U.S. distributor of propane fuel system products from Prins Autogas of The Netherlands, and the manufacture of record handling U.S. EPA and California Air Resource Board certifications on behalf of 98-partner Alliance AutoGas.
Besides being a center for propane autogas development (F&F, December 9, 2013), the 6,225-square-foot Blossman AR&T Center will itself be an environmental showcase, producing all of its own power on-site: 40% from solar and 60% from a propane-powered micro CHP (combined heat and power) generation system. “The emissions reductions will be over 80%.,” Blossman says,
Lower Cost than Natural Gas
“We continue to strengthen our position as the nation’s leader in propane autogas by providing autogas systems to run on the most common engine platforms used by fleets,” Blossman Gas and Alliance AutoGas president Stuart Weidie said in a release. Fleets can switch to propane autogas, he said, “at a fraction of the cost of installation of natural gas.”
Blossman promises to provide training and related educational opportunities to fleet managers and propane autogas conversion partners at the AR&T facility in Asheville.
“This will allow the Alliance Autogas network to perform quality conversions and provide the maintenance necessary to keep vehicles running at peak performance,” Weidie said.
