Tennessee Motors Pool Petroleum Reduction Plan

(TMPPRP) 

UTC has made a concerted effort to maximize the efficiency of motor pool operations to reduce dependence on petroleum-based products, and to create an environment that encourages alternative means of transportation, including bicycling, walking, and mass transit.

UTC is a full and active participant in the University of Tennessee Motor Pool Petroleum Reduction Plan (TMPPRP).  All UT-ordered vehicles - including trucks, cars and vans -  all use E85 Flex Fuels.  UTC has exceeded the basic parameters of the TMPPRP by purchasing 17 electric vehicles, replacing gas-powered utility vehicles.  100% of waste synthetic oils are recycled, totaling 500 gallons per year.
