American Power Group Corporation’s subsidiary, American Power Group, Inc. (APG), continues to expand the portfolio of approvals for its Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel System with the receipt of State of California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order (EO) Certifications for Cummins ISX and Detroit Diesel DD15 Engines.
The additional CARB EO Certifications include vehicular engine models within the 2010-2012 engine years as follows:
|Engine Year||Engine Models||Horsepower|
|Cummins ISX 14.9L||2010||8 models||Up to 583hp|
|2011||17 models||Up to 592hp|
|2012||17 models||Up to 592hp|
|Detroit Diesel DD15 14.8L||2010||10 models||Up to 560hp|
|2011||20 models||Up to 560hp|
|2012||20 models||Up to 560hp|
These latest certifications are in addition to APG’s existing CARB EO Certifications for the 2010-2013 Volvo 12.8L engine families and 497 EPA posted approvals covering CAT, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Daimler, Mack and Volvo engine families ranging in model years from 1991-2014.
Lyle Jensen, American Power Group Corporation’s CEO stated, “Our recent dual-fuel emission test results from the Center for Alternative Fuel Engines and Emissions at West Virginia University on SCR emission technology has shown greater than a 50% reduction in NOx emissions compared to the federal standard. These NOx levels would qualify APG’s dual-fuel solution for CARB’s future “Optional Low NOx” consideration.”
Jensen added, “RL Polk estimates there are over 30,000 California registered Class 8 trucks that are model year 2010 and newer. We are now in a position to: a) accelerate NOx reduction on the largest number of California registered trucks, b) allow fleets to achieve optional low NOx results well before California’s scheduled deadlines and c) become a major consumer of renewable natural gas (RNG) which is seeing phenomenal growth in California.”
