Ethanol and biodiesel are alternative fuels produced from plant materials ranging from the current staples of corn and soy to the future feedstocks of pine, switchgrass, and algae. Compressed natural gas, largely made up of methane, is extracted from gas and oil wells while propane is liquefied petroleum gas produced from processing natural gas and oil.

The workshop coordinated by the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition will include sessions from state leaders including an informative outline of the activities ADECA has taken to build positive economic growth from the use of biofuels and a summary on the involvement and benefits to state agriculture from the Department of Agriculture's Center for Alternative Fuels.

Other sessions will include an enlightening presentation of the future of biofuels in Alabama presented by Auburn University's Natural Resources Management & Development Institute and municipal perspectives offered by Hoover's Director of Fleet Management. Hoover has been recognized nationally and internationally for its initiatives with over 85% of its fleet running on alternative fuels.

Perspectives on the use and quality of ethanol and biodiesel will be provided by national representatives from the Ethanol Promotion and Information Council (EPIC) and the National Biodiesel Board. The production, distribution, and retailing of alternative fuels will be discussed by representatives from Biodiesel Logic, McPherson Oil, Precision Sales & Service, and Blossman Gas & Appliance.

The enlightening workshop has been designed to appeal to a broad audience. Among the many groups that will find the information both relevant and practical will be: city, county, and other governmental agencies; fuel producers, distributors, and retailers; school districts, colleges, and universities; fleet and transportation managers; the media; and consumers alike.
