GREENSBORO, N.C. – September 12, 2011 – Chad Johnson, Marketing Manager at Gilbarco Veeder-Root, will speak at the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) convention held in conjunction with the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show, Sunday, October 2 at 9:15 a.m., at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The presentation will outline successful strategies for supplying and marketing DEF, as well as the equipment and infrastructure that will help retailers make the most of their forecourt space.
In the United States, new EPA Vehicle Emission Standards for Diesel Engines went into effect in 2010. New transport trucks now have 20 gallon tanks for DEF and inject DEF into the exhaust stream to reduce Nitrogen Oxide emissions. The corrosive characteristics and storage temperature requirements for DEF are very different from diesel fuel and gasoline.
