Burlum provides an inside look into the epic journey that has become what we know today as Extreme Energy Solutions; a green tech company aimed at researching, developing, manufacturing, and distributing emissions reduction technology, green technology, and environmentally friendly products; while also sharing the challenges that one could possibly face in today’s economic climate; Burlum shares his experiences in great detail.

West Milford, New Jersey, November 2, 2015

It was considered one of the largest open source research projects in America, and then it fell short to deliver to the market. Out of the ashes of the rise and fall of the Hydro Assist Fuel Cell and its manufacturer, Dutchman Enterprises, came a number of off-shoot companies whom continued on their own to search for answers in the green technology sector, aimed in addressing some of society’s most pressing issues; the continued use of fossil fuels, the mitigation of harmful toxic vehicle emissions, and the development of products to lesson our impact on mother nature.

This is the story of just one of those teams of people, whom kept their passion for these areas of expertise alive, and brought their ideas together which lead to the formation of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., located in Ogdensburg, New Jersey. In “Life in the Green Lane…Pursuit of the American Dream,” Extreme Energy Solutions CEO and President, Samuel K. Burlum reflects on what it took for the Company to bring to market such products as the Smart Emissions Reducer, Extreme Kleaner Multi-purpose Non-Toxic Cleaner-Degreaser, the Sidewinder ATV, Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatments, and other products and services offered by the green tech company.

Burlum continues in his story, “Life in the Green Lane,” to give a step by step account on how his team was able to achieve feats in technology that were considered impossible, including the how they achieved the results that lead to controversy both locally and nationally. He shares the science and the technical know-how in laymen language so that even someone, whom may not be a technical expert in the areas of green technology, or fuel economy, or even automotive technology, could gain a bird’s eye view on the possibilities in improving the gas mileage of a vehicle.

“No entrepreneurial journey is without some sort of set of challenges, for they assist you in growing and making your company, products, and business plan better,” contributed Samuel K. Burlum, author of “Life in the Green Lane,” whom is also a business consultant to other Main Street businesses up to mid-size companies, “For years, I have met new people who wanted to know the story of how our company got started, and why did we believe in our vision. When I would share our story, I found that the longer we were in business, the more we achieved, the longer the story became; so it was suggested we offer our story in the form of a book to inquiring parties.”

Burlum discusses the “early days” when he was just a part of a third party research team focused on the development of alternative fuel delivery systems for the automotive aftermarket, and how those many lessons learned assisted the team and what would become later, the company, overcome barriers of entry into the market. From the technology to the marketing, Burlum describes the series of events that have occurred over the past seven years to present which has led to the commercialization of number of products and services in the areas of emissions reduction and fuel efficiency.

“As many of the talented technicians whom were involved with the project, we found better ways around the challenges of such technology applications, and would find ways to make these types of devices to work, however the results would usually be accompanied by many man hours of invested time, devoted research, and some trial and error.”

Today, Burlum and Extreme Energy Solutions continue their research and development of ideas and concepts aimed to decrease harmful toxic emissions of both gasoline and diesel powered vehicles. Burlum shares his and fellow teammate’s journey from their humble beginnings in the borough of Ogdensburg, to their road trips coast to coast, which they installed a number of the Smart Emissions Reducer devices under the hoods of commercial and municipal fleet vehicles. By the year 2012-2013 showed on the calendar, the company was now engaged in testing and discussions with vehicle manufacturers whom showed interest in the new promising device.

Burlum provides insight of the behind the scenes of what it took in order for the company to achieve successes, or as he calls, “small victories,” more or less benchmarks when and where the company could demonstrate market demand for its products. “Life in the Green Lane,” caters to those readers whom may have a technical interest in green technology, and it caters to the entrepreneur at heart. The 300 page plus book outlines times and dates, to give you a sense of the series of events, and how quickly the company grew in commercializing its products.

Burlum says he is releasing the book before the company has monumental success, because not all stories have romantic endings.

“Sometimes people need to know the truth of the grit and grind that goes along with pursuing your dreams. There are dream stealers whom enjoy watching others fail, some of them could be very close to you, maybe even in your own home. Then on the other side of the spectrum there are folks who will become your biggest fans because of what you stand for, because of your core values and the very value you create will benefit the many,” Burlum adds.

“Life in the Green Lane” is almost complete, and there has not been a final release date established yet, there has been a tentative date of March 2016.  You can pre-order your copy before they hit the shelves of books stores at http://igg.me/at/lifeinthegreenlane/x/6455610

2015 World Green Energy Symposium, this year held in Washington DC, at University of District of Columbia, March 12, left no stone unturned in discussing energy, green technology, environmental policy, economic sustainability, as the event offered expertise from many market segments. From government to industry; schools of thought and students to community activist; answers to solve some of today’s most pressing concerns came from every corner of the gathering.

“We want to thank you all for coming today in attending this year’s WGES,” said Professor Robert Gallagher, Executive Chair of the World Green Energy Symposium as he welcomed all guests to the well-attended event, “You will find opportunities galore from industry to government, from schools of thought to community activist, you will not be disappointed by the options of answers you can gather from today’s offerings.”

Four-time Emmy Winner, former Broadcast Journalist Jan Fox was the event’s emcee and opened the event at 9:00 am introducing special guest and speakers to the podium.

Professor Gallagher first recognized all of the past World Green Energy Symposium NOVA Award Honorees for their contributions to advancements in solving problems associated with environmental and energy issues. Then Gallagher took a moment to recognize this, year’s recipient, Dr. Sabine O’Hara, Dean of College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability, and Environmental Sciences (CAUSE) of the University of DC.

“We are honored to add another member to class of NOVA Award Winners. The Current Class includes the City of Washington DC, City of Philadelphia, Drexel University, Dow Chemical, and Extreme Energy Solutions, among others who have demonstrated making steps and development of policies and technologies that lead us to protecting our environment and natural resources, while providing sustainable choices,”

“We are honored to present Dr. Sabine O’Hare and CAUSE with this year’s NOVA Award for their efforts in becoming a sustainable land grant site, being totally sustainable, including their construction of this campus,” Gallagher professed.

“We are honored to accept this award. This is not just my award, but a reflection of all of our staff, students, board, alumni, suppliers, and the rest of the individuals who supported our vision for our school,” Dr. O’Hare added, “The city supported our goals, which provided us the opportunity to be the only 100% sustainable University in the District.”

Tribute was paid in accommodations by a number of special guests who included Mr. James Lyons, President of University of DC, who welcomed attendees to the campus and to the event. He was followed by Margaret Singleton, Vice President of DC Chamber of Commerce; Tommy Wells, Acting Director, District Department of the Environment, Government of the District of Columbia; and then Dr. O’Hare wrapped up the morning session showcasing the series of steps CAUSE took to develop their sustainable campus.

The mid-day panel represented opportunities within federal government and presented case studies; steps and initiatives that government has taken to become even more-green, thus saving taxpayer money in the meantime. Panel was led by Mr. Kevin Kampschroer, from GSA who shared the agency’s green building practices; which including the usage of energy efficiency tech, LEED construction practices, and maximizing space.

Ms. Kristine Kingery presented what the Army is doing to become more environmentally friendly in managing its assets and bases around the world. Ms. Jo Anne Hill, with the US Department of Commerce, provided a discussion referencing contract opportunities available for Minority Owned Business Enterprises in the area of sustainability and environmental initiatives by the federal government. The session was concluded by Mr. Landon Van Dyke, with the Department of State, who shared the vision and ongoing practices by the Department of State in greening US Embassies around the world.

The afternoon full of workshops; discussions and question and answer sessions from a number of interests: new technology, transportation solutions, the use of big data to monitor energy usage and energy conservation, understanding public private partnerships were just part of the plethora of sessions one could choose from.

Two of the workshops that stood out were the discussion lead by Mr. Samuel K. Burlum, CEO of Extreme Energy Solutions, who presented a case study and examples about here and now available technology that could lower harmful toxic emissions from vehicles, including advancements made in this technology sector, and the importance of embracing the retrofit technology market. Burlum shared his vision of public policy measures that would allow for green technology to blossom. You can see the complete video at here.

Another well attended workshop provided insight on deploying sustainable technology to the continent of Africa. Panel, moderated by Ron Uba, Department of Commerce-MBDA; led by Mr. Ken Johnson, provided information referencing emerging economies within developing nations. Mr. Johnson discussed examples of countries within Africa who were struggling to meet the demands of water, energy, power, food supply, and alternatives currently being investigated to meet these needs.

Attendees casted their vote of satisfaction as the even came to a close, all leaving with valuable information and contacts from the event.

“There is still much work to be done in this field of practice,” Burlum contributed, “the areas of environmental protection, green technology, alternative energy, sustainability, and policy making that drives the markets to evolve are still very much in their infancy. If you compare this industry to the early days of the .com boom or the early days of the information age, you can see the ‘green industry’ is following those same trends,”

“There are other drivers to the movement of environmental sustainability, which I believe one of them is generational. There are far more X, Y, and Millennial generation individuals who were cultured with a sense of environmental regard for the planet than the previous generations. These generations who grew up with recycling in the classroom; earth day celebrations; they were the generations who have embraced most of the green technology we have today; so it is no surprise that we are seeing large growth in this area. As they exercise their purchasing power, and combine that with their life style habits, you get a demanding market segment who wants more organic and green choices. It’s a trend companies like our welcome in the near future,” mentioned Burlum.

Chinas Auto Industry Looks To Adopt New Emissions Technology

November 12, 2014  Ogdensburg, New Jersey

Syndicated from KYTX CBS News 19 Texas-

Keshi Factory 0aExtreme Energy Solutions Inc., A New Jersey Based Environmental Firm Begins Research With Several Chinese Engine And Vehicle Manufacturers To Help Address Their Air Pollution Concerns.

Various Chinese auto manufacturers show serious interest in a new emissions technology offered by Extreme Energy Solutions, a New Jersey based technology company. Extreme’s flagship product, the Smart Emissions Reducer is a relatively new emissions reduction and combustion enhancing technology that is gaining popularity quickly. It has been proven in various reputable laboratories and testing facilities such as Roush Industries, Nova Analytical Systems, Inc., and the Changzhou Keshi Group to reduce emissions substantially and even provide a fuel economy increase as a beneficial side effect.

The Changzhou Keshi Group, a manufacturer of specialty vehicles for the mining industry joined the ranks of some of their industry colleagues including the BAIC Motor Corporation, FAW Jiefang Quingdao Automobile Company and the Weichai Power Company in issuing Letters of Interest/Letters of Intent to Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. Chinas severe pollution concerns are calling for implementation of new emissions reduction technology such as Smart Emissions Reducer (SER).

This rising new green technology will be put to the test in some of the harshest air pollution conditions in the world. With outdoor visibility very low, and many people even wearing masks in public due to air pollution, China is the perfect place to implement such technology.

On site 24The applications of the SER are virtually endless. For all internal combustion engines of any fuel type, the SER can help improve the combustion process and reduce the amount of smog and greenhouse gasses being released into populated areas. With government policies aimed to address air pollution, specifically in the transportation sector, engine and vehicle manufactures are in a dire need of a solution to meet new regulatory benchmarks.

To meet this demand, representatives from these Chinese corporations searched far and wide for solutions, only to find themselves in the small town of Ogdensburg, New Jersey. Extreme Energy Solutions, a manufacturer, distributor, and servicer of emissions reduction technology welcomed the delegates with an eagerness to help them solve their pollution concerns.

The first to meet with Samuel K. Burlum, CEO/President of Extreme Energy Solutions, and his team was the Weichai Power Company. Weichai is a publicly traded engine manufacturer of heavy duty diesel power plants that also produces vehicle models such as buses, semi trucks, and service trucks. Weichai visited the New Jersey company in early 2013, and decided to explore further possibilities of partnering with the up and coming green technology firm.

Weichai-Shandong Group (2)“We were impressed with the Smart Emissions Reducer, and the technology behind it,” noted Tim Chang, Deputy Director of Engine Research and Development, If the products test meets our expectations, we would like to discuss with you a business partnership that would be mutually beneficial to both of us. Currently Weichai and Extreme Energy Solutions are engaged in on going testing to determine the validity of the SER in Weichais applications.

The next manufacturer to investigate the Smart Emissions Reducer was the Keshi Group, a mining industry equipment manufacturer that is located in Changzhou, Jiangsu Provence. The Keshi Group initially partnered with Extreme in November 2013 to test the validity of SER. Mr. Jiang Hanjun, CEO and President of Changzhou Keshi Group, had an opportunity to travel to Ogdensburg, New Jersey with his team to investigate this solution that lowers emissions while increasing fuel efficiency. Keshi is interested in applying this new clean technology to their explosion proof underground mining vehicles.

After meeting with Extreme Energy Solutions’ CEO and President, Samuel Burlum, and the rest of the EES team, Mr. Jiang committed to partnering with Extreme in testing their flagship product, the Smart Emissions Reducer.

“We are very impressed with the product (Smart Emissions Reducer) and are very interested in cooperating
with your company,” commented Mr. Jiang.

The Keshi Group recently concluded testing of the Smart Emissions Reducer this past summer of 2014. Testing results concluded that the Smart Emissions Reducer performed as advertised under controlled laboratory conditions. Preliminary tests would show the SER could provide up to a 5% fuel economy increase on a brand new 5.9 liter Cummings diesel On site 16apowered engine, and a significant reduction in emissions, more specifically a reduction in particulate matter (PM) of up to 49% and carbon monoxide (CO) of up to 63%.

After further testing conducted by Keshi, the Smart Emissions Reducer proved to deliver consistent emissions reductions between 20% to 50% in all phases of the engines operations, while also still providing a fuel economy benefit of no lower than 2% and 3%. The Keshi Groups testing data was reviewed by Dr. Carley Corrado, Ph.D., with the Department of Physics at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Corrado provided commentary on the Statistical Margin of Error within the test report, evaluating the reduction of emissions and improved fuel efficiency by adding the Smart Emissions Reducer onto the new Cummings diesel engine.

“The total emissions averaged over the 6 modes tested in the categories of CO, K/M, and N% were decreased by 22%, 25% and 18% respectively,” noted Dr. Carrado, “There was a decrease in Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) of 2.3%, which is equivalent to the corresponding improvement of fuel efficiency.”

“Conservative projections of the fuel economy savings resulting from the addition of the SER estimates an ROI of 1.2 years and a total of 10,000 liters (2641 gallons) of fuel over the expected lifespan of the SER,” continued Corrado.

On site 26Mr. Jiang and Keshi offered to enter into the next phase of the Extreme Energy Solutions Smart Emissions
Reducer evaluation program, and agreed to purchase a small rolling production of the SER devices and have them installed in the field.

“It was a real pleasure to work side by side with Keshis Technicians,” Burlum contributed, “they really appreciated the partnership and they clearly demonstrated that they could quickly embrace the installation process.”

Keshi and EES technicians worked side by side to install the Smart Emissions Reducers over a two day period at a mine in Inner Mongolia on newly deployed Keshi vehicles.

BAIC and FAW are still in talks with Extreme and also look to move forward with the evaluation process. Both BAIC and FAW have invited Extreme back to China to get their cooperative Smart Emissions Reducer programs underway.

The Smart Emissions Reducer, (initially branded as the Intercharger) was first introduced by Extreme Energy Solutions in 2010 to the taxi and delivery vehicle market. It was soon approved for use by the New York City Taxi and Limo Commission. Then it was later tested by Roush Industries on gasoline powered vehicles. Tests in their lab demonstrated the SER could deliver up to a 7.5% increase in fuel efficiency and up to 65% reduction in emissions.

“We are very impressed with the product (Smart Emissions Reducer) and are very interested in cooperating with your company,” commented Mr. Jiang. Jiang offered a formal invitation to Burlum and his team to visit the Keshi facility in China, where both companies would partner to test the validity of the Smart Emissions Reducer in the mining equipment vehicle application.

“If the test results are satisfactory, we would like to discuss long term cooperation matter with your company including becoming an exclusive distributor of SER for your company in China,” offered Mr. Jiang.

Keshi Lab TestKeshi Group began testing of the Smart Emissions Reducer in December 2013. Testing results concluded that the Smart Emissions Reducer performed as advertised under controlled laboratory conditions. Preliminary testing would show the SER could provide up to a 5% fuel economy increase on a brand new 5.9 liter Cummings diesel powered engine, and a significant reduction in emissions, more specifically a reduction of particulate matter (PM) up to a 49% and carbon monoxide (CO) up to 63%.

After further testing conducted by Keshi, the Smart Emissions Reducer proved to deliver consistent vehicle emissions reductions between 20% to 50% in all phases of the engines operations, while also still providing a fuel economy benefit no lower than 2% and 3%, although field tests have shown it to be higher.

Keshis testing data was reviewed by Dr. Carley Corrado, PhD, with the Department of Physics at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Corrado provided commentary on the Statistical Margin of Error within the test report and evaluated the reduction of emissions and improved fuel efficiency by addition of the Smart Emissions Reducer onto a new Cummings diesel engine.

“The total emissions averaged over the 6 modes tested in the categories of CO, K/M, and N% were decreased by 22%, 25% and 18% respectively,” noted Dr. Corrado, “There was a decrease in Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) of 2.3%, which is equivalent to the corresponding improvement of fuel efficiency.”

“Conservative projections of the fuel economy savings resulting from addition of the Smart Emissions Reducer estimates an ROI of 1.2 years and a total of 10,000 liters (2641 gallons) of fuel over the expected lifespan of the SER,” continued Corrado.

Mr. Jiang and Keshi offered to enter into the next phase of testing with Extreme Energy Solutions Smart Emissions Reducer program. “We will agree to purchase a small rolling production of the SER devices andhave them installed in the field. If we find similar results as the lab, we will want to deploy the technology throughout China,” stated Jiang at a recent meeting held at his facility in Changzhou.

KeshiMineTesting1“We are honored to partner with Keshi, and are very pleased that Keshi and Extreme are working together on solutions for Chinas pollution problems that are a result of harmful vehicle emissions,” Burlum contributed, This partnership is good for China and good for America. Keshi is proving it is helping China address some of its pressing national air quality concerns, while further validating the SER technology.”

“A long term agreement with Keshi would mean that our company is providing a valuable export to China, thus we would need to increase domestic jobs to meet the demand,” said Samuel Burlum.
