VTG Rail U.K., one of Europe's leading rail logistics and wagon hire companies, recently announced the results of a study that was aimed at determining the effects of E5 on the lining and components of railcars. The study was completed in partnership with two lining manufacturing companies and concluded that E5 caused no adverse effects on railcar linings. To complete the study, the tank lining material was submerged in E5 for approximately six months. The company is also completing testing on other components of its railcars, such as seals and gaskets.
