Propane will be on display at the upcoming 2016 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long,Beach California. The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is promoting the benefits of propane. Tucker Perkins, chief business officer, is presenting at the expo’s May 4, 2016 general session on urban mobility.

PERC is located in booth 911, which will showcase a variety of propane-powered equipment. A Ford F-550 fitted with a Roush CleanTech propane autogas system will be displayed in the booth alongside a Tico Port Tractor and Exmark commercial mower to give attendees a close-up look at the machines moving businesses forward with clean, American-made fuel. Attendees can also learn about how propane autogas vehicles can help them meet sustainability goals – including how propane fuels decrease hydrocarbon emissions – and “green up” their corporate image.

“With regulations continuing to limit carbon and greenhouse gas emissions across the United States, propane autogas is an inexpensive, easy-to-implement solution with long-lasting benefits that include reduced maintenance, lower fuel costs, and longer engine life.” Perkins added, “It’s also becoming increasingly common to hear how businesses can gain clients and generate success through adding environmentally-friendly equipment and practices to their operation.”
