Gilbarco's Chad Johnson Speaks About Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at NATSO

GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - Chad Johnson, Marketing Manager at Gilbarco Veeder-Root, will speak at the National Association of Truck Stop Operators (NATSO) Show, Saturday, February 19 at 2:00 p.m., at the Barjan Business Solutions Educational Theatre, Veracruz Exhibit Hall, Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Lake Buena Vista, FL.

The presentation, titled "Diesel Exhaust Fluid: The Truckstop's New Profit Center" will outline successful strategies for supplying and marketing DEF, as well the equipment and infrastructure that will help retailers make the most of their forecourt space and combine payment transactions.

In the United States, new EPA Vehicle Emission Standards for Diesel Engines went into effect in 2010. New transport trucks now have 20 gallon tanks for DEF and inject DEF into the exhaust stream to reduce Nitrogen Oxide emissions. The corrosive characteristics and storage temperature requirements for DEF are very different from diesel fuel and gasoline.

NATSO is a national trade association representing travel plaza and truckstop owners and operators. Founded in 1960, NATSO represents over 1,070 travel plazas and truckstops owned by more than 240 corporate entities.

Gilbarco Veeder-Root is the leading supplier of Gilbarco® gas pumps, payment systems, point of sale systems and other equipment and services to the retail and commercial petroleum market. The majority of travel plazas choose Gilbarco Veeder-Root for their dispenser and tank gauge needs, according to Johnson.
