GreenMan Subsidiary Receives EPA Approval For Fifty-Five Caterpillar and Detroit Diesel OUL Vehicular Engine Family Applications
Lynnfield, MA… GreenMan Technologies, Inc. announced that its American Power Group Inc. (APG) subsidiary has received online notification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) that its recent Clean Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Engine Conversion Submission has been approved for the following Outside Useful Life (“OUL”) engines:
Caterpillar Detroit Diesel
C15 (2006-2004) DD15 (2009-2008)
C13 (2006-2004) DD13 (2009)
C11 (2006-2004) MBE 4000 (2009-2008)
C-16 (2002-1998) Series 60 12.7L (2006-2004)
C-15 (2003-1998) Series 60 14.0L (2009-2004)
C-12 (2003-1998 OM460LA (2007)
The submission utilized APG’s latest V5000 Dual Fuel Turbocharged Natural Gas™ technology which is required to meet specific design, componentry, and emission compliance criteria per the EPA Final Rule 40CFR Parts 85 and 86.
Lyle Jensen, GreenMan’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Today’s announcement is a testament to our APG team and the extraordinary effort they have shown over the past several quarters as we worked to complete last week’s $8.2 million capital raise. These approvals include some of the most popular higher mileage CAT and Detroit Diesel engine models on the road today and represent 10 of the top 40 OUL engine families we had identified to pursue in the coming months. We can now begin working with our certified installers, who have cumulatively identified a significant number of customers that have expressed an interest in learning more about the benefits of our dual fuel natural gas system.”
Mr. Jensen added, “As we move forward with our requests for additional targeted OUL engine family approvals we also intend to accelerate our plans to begin emissions testing for Intermediate Age (“IUL”) engine models over the coming months. While the IUL market represents a larger portion of what we see to be a multi-billion U.S. market for diesel conversions, today’s approvals provide us with a good start towards achieving our initial installation goals.”
GreenMan’s alternative energy subsidiary, American Power Group, Inc., provides a cost-effective patented Turbocharged Natural Gas™ conversion technology for aftermarket vehicular and stationary diesel engines and diesel generators. American Power Group's dual fuel technology is a unique non-invasive energy enhancement system that converts existing diesel engines into more efficient and environmentally friendly engines that have the flexibility to run on: (1) diesel fuel and compressed natural gas (“CNG”); (2) diesel fuel and liquefied natural gas (“LNG”); (3) diesel fuel and pipeline or well-head gas; and (4) diesel fuel and bio-methane, with the flexibility to return to 100% diesel fuel operation at any time. The proprietary technology seamlessly displaces up to 80% of the normal diesel fuel consumption with the average displacement ranging from 40% to 65%. The energized fuel balance is maintained with a proprietary read-only electronic controller system ensuring the engines operate at original equipment manufacturers’ specified temperatures and pressures. Installation on a wide variety of engine models and end-market applications require no engine modifications unlike the more expensive invasive fuel-injected systems in the market.
