EPA Invites AGC of America to Speak on Diesel Retrofit at Southeast Regional Program

June 8, 2009
Recognizing that AGC is a strong supporter of voluntary diesel retrofit efforts and initiatives at both the national and local levels, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has invited AGC to participate in the Southeast Diesel Collaborative's partners meeting, scheduled for June 15-17 in Atlanta.  The goal of the meeting is to identify new opportunities to reduce emissions from existing diesel engines (like those used in construction equipment) with a specific focus on innovative technologies, clean diesel, and renewable energy sources.  AGC's Senior Environmental Advisor Leah Pilconis will present AGC's perspective on how to balance contractor business and economic concerns with air quality goals.  Register online at no charge at http://www.southeastdiesel.org and be part of a large gathering of federal, state and local officials; environmental advocacy groups; fleet owners; and other diesel stakeholders.  For more information, click here or contact Leah Pilconis at pilconisl@agc.org
