Webinar Series on Oil Release Planning, Prevention, Mitigation

Cindy Zimmerman

The Renewable Fuels Foundation and Pinnacle Engineering are teaming up once again to sponsor a five-part webinar series for renewable fuel stakeholders about oil release planning, prevention and impact mitigation. The Renewable Fuels Foundation is the education and research arm of the Renewable Fuels Association.

Renewable fuel facilities with oil storage (including denatured ethanol) greater than 1 million gallons are generally subject to the Environmental Protection Agency’s requirement to prepare, submit, and implement a Facility Response Plan (FRP). This webinar series will provide an educational opportunity to industry stakeholders on applicability, plan development, training, response and other compliance matters related to preparing and implementing an FRP.

The webinar schedule will be once a month starting next Wednesday, Aug. 16 with an overview of FRPs.
• Aug. 16: FRP Overview
• Sept. 6: Developing an FRP
• Oct. 11: FRP Implementation and Training
• Nov. 1: Incident Management and Impact Mitigation
• Dec. 6: Lessons Learned and Ongoing Compliance

The webinars, which will all be held from 11 a.m. – noon CT, are FREE for RFA members and $100 per session for non-members is $100 per session. To reserve your spot, please contact Missy Ruff at mruff@ethanolrfa.org or 202-446-1944.
