AcuTech recently completed a research project in conjunction with the Coordinating Research Council (CRC) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).  CRC published the report, “A Risk Analysis/Hazard Assessment of High Ethanol Content Fuels at Service Stations” which is available on the CRC website.  AcuTech’s work consisted of qualitative and quantitative risk analyses of ethanol content of motor fuel at service stations.

The study addresses hazards such as spills from tank trucks and vehicle fuel tanks and vapor ignitions, and provides recommendations to mitigate the risks. Mr.  David Heller, AcuTech project manager, said, “The CRC project was an interesting integration of our qualitative and quantitative skill sets. The results of the report should prove useful to industry, as well as government.  Colin Armstrong of the DC office was our lead consultant on the work. The success of the project owes a lot to his efforts.”
