The Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) is attempting to become more environmentally friendly, while saving some green at the gas pump, with their vehicle fleet. A selected group of PPA vehicles have been chosen to be retrofitted with the SMART Emissions Reducer as a 90 day study, to see if the SMART Emissions Reducer will help the PPA lower harmful emissions of vehicles they already have on the road. SMART Emissions Reducer offers the side benefit of fuel savings, assisting the PPA in some budget relief at the fuel pump.
The trial is set to begin on Monday, March 11, 2013. Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. (Ogdensburg, NJ) and Corporate Partner SMART Air Fuel Saver LLC of (FL), has dispatched their top technical team to handle the initial installation of the devices. Overseeing the project is John Primerano, Regional Representative for Extreme and Ken Henshaw, Fleet Manager for the PPA. Both teams will monitor the performance of the SMART device from an administrative and technical perspective, with input from the PPA, where officials will report back their fuel economy results.
Primerano, with Extreme Energy Solutions Inc., says “Should the vehicles experience the expected lower emissions and fuel savings numbers, as the SMART devices have delivered in the past, it would be a major win for the City of Philly to have technology that can deliver real green benefits and aid in reducing City budget costs”.
Primerano is also a resident of Philadelphia.
At the conclusion of the testing, emissions and fuel economy data will be reviewed. Upon completion of the review, the PPA will have an option to explore retrofitting their remaining fleet vehicles.
“It is my opinion that the SMART Emissions Reducer will have a positive effect on fuel mileage and will greatly reduce the amount of toxic emissions released into the atmosphere,” stated Jim Hoch, Director of Enforcement, at the Philadelphia Parking Authority, “I have very high expectations for The SMART Emissions Reducer and I am confident that the PPA will not be disappointed with the performance of this product, which I have been anxious to test for quite some time.”
Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. CEO/President, Samuel K. Burlum, who also is the Vice President of SMART Air Fuel Saver LLC, said that he was looking forward in partnering with the City of Philadelphia in testing the SMART device. “Our company is confident that the trial program will demonstrate positive results for the PPA, and are proud to partner with an agency that has taken the initiative to explore ways to lessen their carbon footprint, while saving taxpayer dollars.”
Successful programs in other regions of the country include the municipalities of Winnebago County Highway Department (IL) who have already signed a contract to continue to retrofit their fleet with the device, and City of West Palm Beach (FL), who has been testing the device since 2011. The SMART Emissions Reducer is the only engine modification permissible by the New York City Taxi and Limo Commission. The SMART Emissions Reducer has been issued a CARB EO (California Air Resources Board Executive Order) #D-671. The SMART Emissions Reducer has also been lab tested by Roush Industries Inc., recording positive results.
SMART Emissions Reducer will soon be available through selected new/used car dealer service centers, including at Straub Buick/GMC (NJ), who is the first car dealer to become an authorized installation facility, offering the device to both fleets and private vehicle owners who choose to “Go Green with the Same Machine.”
