Clean Diesel – Diesel Technology

Web Seminar to Address Clean Diesel

September 08, 2008

FREDERICK, MD --- The Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) has scheduled an online seminar about clean diesel for tomorrow morning, Sept. 10.  

Leading public opinion pollster Hal Quinley from Yankelovich/TSC will discuss the findings of a new survey of American consumers, with an oversample of California consumers, fielded July 14-21.

Automotive analyst Kevin McMahon from the Martec Group will share new research findings that help quantify the economic and environmental benefits of new clean diesel vehicles. For instance, the study found that replacing just 15 percent of the U.S. fleet with diesel-powered vehicles would save 17 billion gallons of fuel and reduce CO2 emissions by 190 million tons over the vehicles' lifetime.

In addition to Quinley and McMahon, representatives from several automotive companies will be available to discuss their new lineup of 50-state compliant diesel vehicles.

In the next year, more than a dozen new clean diesel cars and trucks will be available to consumers offering up to 40 percent better fuel economy and approximately 20 percent less CO2 emissions than their gasoline counterparts.
