APG recently became the first company in the U.S. to receive a Vehicular Memorandum of Exemption from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) allowing public highway access for the testing and verification of APG’s unique non-invasive dual fuel upgrade system on aftermarket diesel truck and tractor engines.
The initial vehicle to be tested for this solid waste collection company will be a 2007 11.5Liter /405 HP Mack refuse truck operating in the Denver metropolitan area. “Benefits from these successful projects would include decreasing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and stimulating economic growth by creating green jobs. We look forward working with APG to validate the benefits of their technology,” Greg Thibodeaux, Vice President of Maintenance & Fleet Management for Waste Connections, stated.
In addition, Lyle Jensen, GreenMan’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented: “Waste Connections, which operates a fleet of over 3,000 vehicles nationwide, is dedicated to implementing sustainability initiatives which include using CNG and LNG as an alternative to diesel fuel, as well as harvesting methane gas from landfills to generate renewable energy to power homes, small industry, and eventually, their fleets. Our test trials will start with a conversion to compressed natural gas and we anticipate future tests could include landfill bio-methane and other bio-gas sources of fuel.”
