Kettering University students and college researchers converted this 2500HD Chevy Silverado pickup to run on a dual-fuel system, and they plan to power it with the biomethane produced by SBI’s biogas plant, located at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.
“This is new in Flint and shows that we are ready to convert the city vehicles and buses for this technology, that we have the knowledge and experiences necessary,” stated Brenda Lemke, a lecturer on fuel cells and renewable energy in Kettering’s mechanical engineering department.
In turn, Mayor Dayne Walling said: “The biogas truck represents another step forward into Flint’s new alternative energy future as it will be able to promote the project out in the community and show off the partnership between the city, university and business sector that came together to make this a reality.”
Students used a conversion hardware provided by Baytech Corp., a Californian firm, which installed a kit that allows the truck to run on both natural gas and gasoline, as the on-board computer switches automatically between both fuels.
