New Emissions Calculator Released!

Argonne National Laboratory Released the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Calculator  

The Argonne National Laboratory has released the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Calculator (HDVEC). HDVEC is an easy-to-use web-based application developed to help estimate the vehicle operation nitrogen oxides (NOx), vehicle operation fine particulates (PM2.5), and well-to-wheel greenhouse gases (GHGs) of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles for Clean Diesel Settlement and other funding projects. In addition, it can estimate the cost-effectiveness of the use of funding dollars to reduce these emissions.

Winter has arrived. Don’t get stuck in the cold, wind and snow because you chose the wrong fuel additive—or none at all.
With more governments, fleets and individuals using biodiesel than ever before, the need for high-performing fuel, especially in the harshest winter conditions, is essential. This panel of experts will address the most pressing cold-season questions, including what CFI options are available; what the difference is between various product types; how, and how well, they work; which performance criteria (e.g., cloud point, pour point and cold filter plugging point) are most important to consider; which users need what additives and how much; how petroleum diesel fuel CFIs interact with biodiesel and biodiesel-specific CFIs; and more. A Q&A session on the backend of the broadcast will answer questions from the listening audience.
