E85 Dispensers now UL certified:
Underwriters Laboratory (UL)
has simultaneously issued certifications to both the Gilbarco Veeder-Root EncoreŽE85 fueling dispenser and the Dresser Wayne Ovation ŽEco fueling E85 dispenser.  These fuel pumps are now completely certified and approved for dispensing any range of fuel ethanol from E0 through E85. Learn more.
Ethanol Energy Balance Study:
The US Department of Agriculture
has issued its "2008 Energy Balance for the Corn-Ethanol Industry" report, and the findings are good news.  It concludes that ethanol has a net energy gain of up to 130 percent, that corn yields are up (on the same number of acres) nitrogen fertilizer use is down, and many ethanol plants are adopting greener and cleaner methods of generating energy and operating more efficiently.  The USDA report is getting good press, like this article in the Star Tribune.

Denver International Airport's use of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles is the focus of this week's Clean Cities success story.  The airport uses a variety of vehicles in its fleet, including natural gas, bi-fuel and electric vehicles. In addition, it recently added electric police mobility vehicles that are being used for traffic control.
