Crown Express owner Kargo Corporation will join with the N.C. Solar Center/N.C. State University and Protec Fuel to celebrate the offering of two cleaner-burning renewable fuels to North Carolina’s capital city with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the first commercial fuel station offering both E85 and B20 biodiesel. The celebration will include a special promotion of E85 fuel for 85 cents a gallon for 85 minutes, sponsored by the Renewable Fuels Association.

Speakers at the grand opening will include representatives from Kargo, North Carolina House, Protec Fuel and the state departments of administration, commerce and transportation. The event is taking place starting at 3:00 pm Eastern time.
