Pittsburgh Region Clean Cities’ Odyssey Day a Success

Posted on 18 October 2011. Tags: , ,


After months of planning, Pittsburgh Region Clean Cities’ hosted another successful Odyssey Day. The event featured 21 vendors, 33 alternative fuel vehicles and six presentations and demonstrations. More than 300 people attended.

Odyssey Day, an outreach event sponsored by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC), is held to educate the public about alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles through speakers, demonstrations, training sessions and more.

Rahim Charania of American Fueling Systems led one of the most popular presentations of the day, “CNG: The Myths and Realities”. The discussion covered topics such as fuel prices, financial concerns and infrastructure.

“The technology is there and it’s getting better,” said Rick Price, PRCC’s Coalition Coordinator, during an interview with KDKA. “Our job is to educate the public, do outreach events like this to show the public what is going on.”
