The Diesel Technology Forum is:
"a non-profit educational organization dedicated to raising awareness about the economic importance and essential uses of diesel engines, highlighting the continuous improvements to reduce emissions from new and existing diesel engines, and leading the way for future clean diesel technology in all applications. It represents the leaders of the diesel industry including engine and equipment makers, key component manufacturers, fuel producers and emissions control technology manufacturers.
Since it was founded in 2000, the Forum has emerged as a leading source of information on clean diesel and energy issues which regularly participates in legislative and regulatory deliberations, technology demonstrations, and industry and media events. The Forum brings together a broad range of diesel stakeholders including diesel users, public and environmental interest groups, and government officials to encourage the exchange of information and ideas about the use of diesel technology. Elected officials, regulators, members of the media and other opinion leaders count on the Forum for data, insight and expert commentary.
DTF's program is based out of Metropolitan Washington, DC and is national in scope including full time representation based in California. Its resources include technical researchers, policy and communications specialists and communications experts."
