Steve Russell is the Fleet Superintendent for the City of Keene, New Hampshire. If it rolls in the City of Keene, Steve is responsible for keeping it rolling. The city vehicles of police, fire, rescue, public works, water, wastewater, and the recycling center which are powered by diesel fuel have been using Biodiesel successfully for over seven years.
Under Steve's direction the fleet has been recognized nationally by ICLEI/Local Governments for Sustainability for its extensive use of Biodiesel. As well, in 2004 Keene's Fleet Services Division was the recipient of The State of New Hampshire Governor's Award for Pollution Prevention, recognizing it for its work in Biodiesel and other pollution prevention work.
For the last five years Steve has been sharing his knowledge about Biodiesel, pollution prevention, and alternative fuels with fleet managers, public works directors, national park staff, and transit fleet operators all around the United States. Most recently he spoke at the University of Massachusetts Department of the Interior Clean Energy Conference.
