PEI, NATSO Add Speakers to Conference

The Petroleum Equipment Institute and NATSO, which represents travel plazas and truckstops, add several industry experts to the Diesel Exhaust Fluid Conference on June 5.
The one-day workshop will be at the Gaylord Opryland Resort Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville.
Session topics include DEF quality concerns, label requirements, storage and dispensing requirements, DEF locator services, fire codes and more.
PEI is the trade association for petroleum equipment marketing.
Beginning in 2010, diesel trucks using selective catalytic reduction to meet emissions standards will require Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to operate. Before DEF can make its way to trucks, it has to be available at the truckstop. The conference will offer recommendations on how retailers can ramp-up DEF at existing truckstops and integrate it on the fuel island at new truckstops.
The one-day session will also cover payment systems, equipment costs, and financing and lease options for DEF equipment. Europeans have been using DEF for three years, and those in the U.S. can learn from their experience. Richard Browne of Gilbarco Veeder-Root and Rolf Isberg of Yara Industrial North America will lead a session highlighting lessons learned from the equipment and infrastructure rollout in Europe.
