Governor Florio Delivers Keynote Address at Dedication Ceremony for New Jersey’s First Alternative Fuel Demonstration Plant

June 22, 2012

Governor James J. Florio provided the keynote remarks at a dedication ceremony for Primus Green Energy's new $8 million alternative fuel demonstration plant at the company's Hillsborough, N.J., complex on June 22. Primus Green Energy is the developer of a technology that uses biomass in conjunction with natural gas to produce 93-octane, drop-in gasoline.

The speakers' remarks centered on Primus' landmark achievement, which marks a milestone in the transition from a fuel economy based on petroleum to one based on domestically produced alternative fuels. This theme was sounded by Gov. Florio when he reminded the audience in his keynote address that they will some day be able to look back and "take pride at being here at the beginning."

The event was attended by a distinguished roster of more than a dozen federal, state and local dignitaries, including the keynote speakers Gov. James J. Florio and N.J. Department of Environmental Protection Assistant Commissioner Robert A. Marshall. Additional remarks were provided by representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Congress, the New Jersey State Legislature and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. The event was capped by the test drive of an automobile fueled with the alternative fuel made from biomass.
