NEW YORK, Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a survey conducted by industry publication AltFuels Advisor, industry and government leaders have identified these major trends that will contribute to the growth of the alternative fuels vehicle industry's growth for 2001:

      -- Petroleum displacement strategies      -- The Environmental Protection Agency's proposed rules for low-sulfur         diesel fuel.      -- The EPA's case before the Supreme Court on the agency's rule on ozone      -- Methyl tertiary butyl ether phaseouts      -- Clean power production  

The long-range outlook proposes that fuel cells and, ultimately, a hydrogen fuel economy is on the horizon. Experts make the interesting point that rather than phasing out current alternative fuels, the opposite is true. Nearly every alternative fuel will have a place in the new hydrogen economy.
