The Propane Education & Research Council is offering a new webinar as part of its “Propane Presents Technology Series” that will discuss next-generation propane forklift technology. The webinar, created in partnership with Tecogen, a leading manufacturer of clean technologies, will take place at 1 p.m. CST on Feb. 25.

During the webinar, attendees will hear from Tecogen President and COO Robert Panora regarding the company’s near-zero emission forklift technology. Panora will give an overview of Tecogen’s Ultera technology and how it can help decrease emissions in the material handling industry without sacrificing power or performance. Additionally, he will share how the latest propane catalyst engine technology is helping businesses meet strict indoor air quality standards.

“Manufacturers and propane industry professionals are working to continually improve propane engine technology, especially from an exhaust emissions and fuel efficiency standpoint,” said Matt McDonald, director of off-road business development at PERC.

“The material handling and supply chain industry continues to see a shift to cleaner practices and this webinar is a great opportunity to learn more about near-zero emissions forklift technology.”

Ultera is a patented emissions technology comprised of a two-stage after-treatment system that reduces the criteria pollutants of nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbons. The Tecogen technology represents emissions control strategies that could be implemented on existing lift trucks as a retrofit solution, as well as incorporated into the emissions control designs by all manufacturers of new forklifts.

PERC’s “Propane Presents Technology Series” focuses on new and emerging propane technologies, education, and best practices to approach the ideal customer. Hosted and facilitated by PERC, in partnership with various OEMs, the series aims to showcase various propane products across multiple markets, answer questions directly from the industry and end users, and provide relevant resources and training information.
