Recent accidents involving transportation fuel, including ethanol, have highlighted the importance of safety when it comes to moving flammable and hazardous materials. It turns out that the tanker truck explosion in California on June 13 was actually carrying petroleum, not ethanol as the media reported, but the Canadian National Railway train that derailed in Illinois over the weekend was carrying ethanol.
This edition of the Ethanol Report features comments from Renewable Fuels Association Director of Technical Services Kristy Moore discussing the importance of safety to the ethanol industry and what RFA has done to develop and distribute safety information specifically related to ethanol production and transportation.
More information about ethanol safety can be found on the Ethanol Emergency Response Coalition website – ethanolresponse.com.
