American Power Group Inc. (APG), a subsidiary of GreenMan Technologies, Inc., has entered into an agreement with Waste Connections of Colorado, Inc. to convert one of its refuse transfer trucks to APG’s dual fuel system and begin on-the-road test trials and emission compliance approval.
The test exemptions will allow APG to gather critical engine performance and emission data on a pre-dual fuel and post-dual fuel basis to support EPA approval requirements and commence commercialization of their dual-fuel upgrade system in the United States. The initial vehicle to be tested for Waste Connections of Colorado, Inc. will be a 2007 11.5Liter /405 HP Mack refuse truck operating in the Denver metropolitan area.
Waste Connections of Colorado, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Waste Connections, Inc., an integrated solid waste services company that provides waste services across 27 states. APG now has agreements with two of the top ten waste companies in the US, the other being Casella Waste Systems.
APG recently received a Vehicular Memorandum of Exemption and eleven initial Test Exemptions from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the testing and verification of APG’s non-invasive dual-fuel upgrade system for aftermarket diesel truck and tractor engines.
