Greater Indiana Clean Cities, Inc. and their partners, the American Lung Association and the B20 Club of Indiana are bringing together distinguished speakers from the Al Warren Oil Company, DC Water, and the United Soybean Board for an engaging webinar highlighting how fleets can use biobased products to save money, boost performance, and reduce their carbon footprint.
Join our presenters to hear about their experiences with biodiesel and biobased fleet products.
The American Lung Association is the oldest voluntary public health association in the United States, having fought for healthy lungs and clean air for more than a century. Through their award-winning Clean Air Choice program, the Association’s Department of Clean Air Initiatives works to improve air quality and combat climate change through the implementation and promotion of clean transportation fuels and technologies. During the webinar the American Lung Association’s Senior Manager for Clean Air Initiatives, Bailey Arnold, will discuss the new B20 Club of Indiana that is funded by the Indiana Soybean Alliance, a statewide organization that serves Indiana soybean farmers through checkoff, membership and policy programs. In collaboration with the American Lung Association, Indiana Soybean Alliance has funded the B20 Club of Indiana program, recognizing and supporting select Indiana-based fleets running on biodiesel blends of 20 percent or higher.
The United Soybean Board’s 78 farmer-directors work on behalf of all U.S. soybean farmers to achieve maximum value for their soy checkoff investments. These volunteers invest and leverage checkoff funds in programs and partnerships. Chris Case, a Biobased Consultant for the United Soybean Board, retired from a 38-year career with the National Park Service where he developed a nationally recognized and award-winning Environmental Leadership program showcasing a variety of “on the ground” practices demonstrating that “Sustainable is Attainable.” During the webinar he will delve into the biobased products available to your fleet and how they are used by the national parks.
Ronald Flowers, a Biobased Consultant for the United Soybean Board, has over 45 years of fleet and senior management experience. Flowers has served as the Executive Director of the Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition, Fleet Administrator for the DC Department of Public Works (DPW) and Director of Transportation for the DC Public Schools (DCPS). During the webinar, he will speak about the process of switching to biodiesel and biobased products. Flowers will discuss the procurement process and what the future looks like for a biobased fleet.
