Faculty helping kickoff of Coast to Coast and Back Renewable Energy Tour

AUBURN – Professor David Bransby and Larry Fillmer, executive director of Auburn’s Natural Resources Management and Development Institute, announced the Coast to Coast and Back Renewable Energy Tour kickoff and media day Monday, Aug. 4, in Montgomery.

Alabama Agriculture Commissioner Ron Sparks hosted the event to mark the beginning of a nationwide tour by Wayne Keith in his Bio-Truck, which is powered by biomass materials such as wood, switchgrass, crop residues and chicken litter. Keith, a partner in Renewable Energy Systems in Springville, Ala., has mounted a gasifier on a V8 pickup truck that travels about one mile per pound of wood and can reach 80 miles per hour.

He demonstrated the vehicle at the event. In late September, Keith and Bransby will begin a nationwide tour in the truck to raise public awareness of renewable energy and its economic, environmental and social benefits. Keith then will participate in a road race from Berkeley, Calif., to Las Vegas for vehicles powered by non-commercially available fuels.
