Diesel technology is critical to the U.S. economy. It makes and moves the vast majority of goods and services Americans use in everyday life. Diesel producing and reliant sectors of the economy constitute nearly half of the U.S. GDP. It is also largely home grown, providing high wage jobs for Americans; adding to the U.S. economy rather than to the nation’s trade deficit.
On September 28 the Diesel Technology Forum will release a new economic study, “Diesel Powers the U.S. Economy: Providing High-Paying Jobs, Exports and Long-Term Productivity Gains in the Nation’s Fundamental Sectors,” authored by Aspen Environmental Group and M.Cubed which quantifies the diesel industry’s current contribution to the economy and its evolution as a sustainable, green, high value added industry.
Please join the Diesel Technology Forum and the report’s prime author, Dr. Richard McCann, Aspen Environmental Group, to learn about U.S. reliance on this technology and its ability to support economic growth through high wage jobs, high value exports and highly efficient vehicles and equipment.
