EcoDual achieves EPA compliance listing for heavy truck engine

Greentech Lead Team:
EcoDual, a provider of dual fuel conversion systems for
heavy duty diesel trucks, has achieved authorization from the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to begin installing its systems on 2004
to 2009 Cummins ISX engines.

company said the EcoDual conversion kit for 15L Cummins ISX engine will provide
fleets with an opportunity to substitute low cost natural gas for expensive
diesel fuel. The EcoDual technology enables existing diesel engines to be
converted to operate on up to 85 percent natural gas, providing enormous fuel
cost savings. The cost of the dual fuel system can be recovered in these
operational savings within one year without any government incentives.

2011, the EPA streamlined the regulations for natural gas engines so that
American small businesses can provide their superior, more affordable
technology in the rapidly growing natural gas vehicle market for heavy trucks.

“Clean Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Engine Conversions” (CAFC) rule,
created a special category, known as Outside Useful Life (OUL), which applies
to heavy duty diesel engines with more than 435,000 miles, or more than 22,000
hours of operation, or are more than 10 years old. The EcoDual system achieved
its EPA compliance under this rule.

is committed to providing a major cost savings to truck fleet owners. Our
system immediately provides a low-cost natural gas fueling solution to millions
of heavy duty trucks. We do this with safe, convenient, inexpensive compressed
natural gas (CNG) and deliver the long-range operation of more than 800 miles
on dual fuel that fleet owners want. We are starting to take orders now and
will begin shipping product in May,” said CEO and president Scott Myers of

EcoDual conversion system was successfully demonstrated and tested on
cross-country runs in a truck provided by J.W. Stenger Trucking
of Barnesville, OH. “We jumped at the opportunity to work with EcoDual
because its system will give us huge savings in our fuel costs,” said
President Joe Stenger.

is an independent provider of patent pending, dual fuel conversion systems
enabling existing heavy duty diesel trucks to operate on a combination of
diesel and natural gas. In dual fuel operation, the trucks maintain full torque
and power with no loss of miles per gallon. The systems are easily installed at
the fleet owner’s site and are fully warranted.

the next 12 months, EcoDual will be releasing multiple systems certified for
newer trucks with the Cummins ISX and other engine families from Detroit
Diesel, Mack and Caterpillar.
