Clean Air Power, developer of compression-ignited natural gas engine systems for heavy duty vehicles, has received a Certificate of Conformity from the United States (US) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its US Genesis EDGE Dual-Fuel™ product.
The certificate confirms that Clean Air Power’s Dual-Fuel engine meets EPA emissions requirements and is valid in 49 of the 50 US states. A separate application has been submitted to the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
Clean Air Power is now working to complete the commercial development and finalise logistical preparations ahead of commercial launch.
John Pettitt, Chief Executive of Clean Air Power, said: “I am delighted that we are now in the final stages of our preparations for the commercial launch of our Genesis EDGE Dual-Fuel™ product in the large and rapidly growing US market. Achieving EPA emissions certification is a major hurdle overcome.”
Substituting natural gas for diesel cuts fuel costs, emissions of carbon, nitrous oxide and particulates whilst retaining the original engine’s power, efficiency and reliability characteristics.
The company operates in the US, Europe, Russia and Australia.
