• CNG fueling options and costs. Graham Barker, Eastern Regional Sales Manager, ANGI Energy System.
• Engines and chassis available for CNG refuse vehicles. Barry Carr, Director of Business Development, Landi Renzo, USA.

• Representatives of PECO, PGW, Clean Cities, and the Commonwealth of PA will be on hand to discuss gas supply issues and funding opportunities.
