William Epling, associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering, was featured in a Q&A session with FuelFix regarding natural gas use in vehicles on December 22, 2013.
UH engineering has teamed up with Anadarko Petroleum Corp., Southwestern Energy, CenterPoint Energy and Apache to form the Greater Houston Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance, a group aimed at encouraging the public to increase the use of natural gas in vehicles. Epling is the group’s president.
In the interview, which covers the goals of the alliance, Epling says that a recent abundance of natural gas found in the U.S. is cause for a much-needed shift in the way the automotive industry designs products. Read the full interview here.
