The Diesel Technology Forum a non-profit group that works to raise awareness about the environmental progress of diesel engines has reported that ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel has become widely available at fueling stations nationwide. The development has calmed concerns over the availability and performance of the fuel for heavy-duty trucks designed specifically for ULSD.
More than 93 million gal of ULSD were refined in July 2007, up from 54 million barrels during July last year. ULSD now accounts for 75 percent of all distillate fuel production. The EPA estimates that 90 percent of all retail service stations that have diesel fuel are now carrying ULSD, exceeding the 80 percent minimum level. Over the last year, 838 million barrels of clean diesel have entered the U.S. distribution system.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
