NATSO Welcomes EcoEngineers as its Newest Chairman’s Circle Member

NATSO is excited to announce that EcoEngineers, a renewable energy consulting firm specializing in renewable energy regulations and services, has joined NATSO as a Chairman’s Circle member—the highest membership level for industry suppliers.

“Alternative fuels energy and sustainable solutions are important to NATSO and its members, and we are thrilled to have EcoEngineers support the truckstop and travel plaza industry as a Chairman’s Circle member,” said Pamela Hayes, vice president of business development.

EcoEngineers offers a unique, comprehensive set of products and services designed exclusively for producers of low-carbon fuels or organizations focused on zero-carbon goals and sustainability initiatives for renewable energy, clean water and clean air. EcoEngineers provides audit, compliance management and consulting services, and delivers clean energy production across multiple industry sectors with its systematic, proven 360° approach.

“We hold a deep understanding for what drives innovation and investment in clean energy projects, and our team of experts will guide you through the regulatory process from concept to commissioning,” said Jim Ramm, director of engineering for EcoEngineers. “Our 360° project approach has evolved through hard-earned experience and unites our talented teams for training and education, regulatory engagement, life-cycle analysis, asset optimization, compliance management, and audit — to deliver the results you seek and the return you count on. By joining the Chairman’s Circle, we hope to connect good fuel producers with good marketers to expand fuel markets and maximize value to all parties.”

Since 2009, EcoEngineers has focused on low-carbon fuels such as biodiesel, ethanol, biogas, renewable electricity, and advanced fuels that include renewable biodiesel, renewable natural gas, cellulosic ethanol, as well as low-carbon fuels produced from municipal solid waste, pyrolysis oil and other cellulosic feedstocks.

“We often refer our clients to biodiesel producers that work with EcoEngineers, who is an EPA approved QAP (Quality Assurance Program) provider, for quality renewable identification numbers (RINs) and fuel. We value their presence in the renewable fuel industry,” said Ginger Laidlaw, vice president of NATSO’s Alternative Fuels Council.

As a Chairman’s Circle member, EcoEngineers will share its industry knowledge and insight with NATSO’s members in a variety of ways, including at NATSO Connect, on NATSO’s website and in Stop Watch magazine.
