Richard Drake, VP of Engineering for ET Environmental ( has been appointed to the NGVAmerica Board of Directors for a one-year term. Drake will serve on the organization’s Maintenance Upgrade Cost Task Force committee based on his knowledge and experience with the cost of CNG maintenance facilities and their associated building codes.

The main goal of the Task Force is to educate and influence the adoption of codes that streamline the process of upgrading a traditional vehicle maintenance facility to comply with alternative fuel vehicles. Keeping costs of upgrading to a minimum while maintaining the highest level of safety will encourage the increased use of alternative fuels for transportation, specifically natural gas and biomethane.
