Extreme Energy Solutions Announces Launch of its New Research and Development Division, E-Tech Performance

Source: Having years of experience in the fields of green tech, alternative fuel technology, and technical service processes, Extreme Energy Solutions establishes new Company division in furthering its next up and coming automotive innovation.

Ogdensburg, NJ.  August 11, 2015

It’s rare a company is able to recoup its losses associated with research and development of new products or services. According to the article, “Brand Flops,” published by Forbes Magazine, March, 31, 2010, well over 95% of new products introduced to the market fail according to research conducted by AcuPoll.

Putting into perspective that statistic, only 5% of all cost, financial and labor hours, associated with research and development are ever recouped in the through the commercialization of a product or service.

However it seems the green tech company, Extreme Energy Solutions, seems to have unique formula for beating the statistics. Since 2010, the Company has commercialized the majority of the products it has launched under its stewardship, having five active product/service lines of the seven it had introduced to the market.

Among the top performers are the product-service lines of Smart Emissions Reducer, Extreme Kleaner, and Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatments. Extreme Energy Solutions has also begun to distribute H2O Energy Flow (bottled water from Wisconsin), and continues to offer finance options of its technology via Fleet Worx Leasing.

Eager to capitalize on all the knowledge it acquired from its early days as a third party research and development consulting company; Extreme Energy Solutions was able to find a use for all of the data and research related to alternative fuel delivery systems and technologies for the transportation and auto industry.

Extreme Energy Solutions recently established E-Tech Performance, an entity founded with the intent to develop solutions for bridging the gap between hardware and software dedicated for use in the automotive industry. The company has three products under development of E-Tech, including E-Missions Automotive Intelligence, a software product concept with the intent to solve the challenge of allowing new emissions equipment to operate in cinque with the current automotive vehicle products offered by car manufactures today.

Samuel K. Burlum, CEO of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc. explains…

“When we were a third party research entity, we discovered there was a need for a solution that would help hardware technology to be more adaptable to the current automotive platforms offered from vehicle manufacturers.

We observed many inventors whom would try to get the vehicle to react to their technology, when they should have been doing the opposite; they should have been tailoring their technology to the actual needs of the vehicle,” continued Burlum

Establishing E-Tech Performance will allow for us to continue our research in this area of expertise, in developing our three phases of our future product line associated with emissions reduction, fuel efficiency, and engine performance, in a software platform that might be able to someday be offered to engine and vehicle manufactures.

The other option is to develop tools and a platform that will allow for aftermarket devices to become more compatible with pre-existing conditions in which such devices or apparatuses must contend with. We see both options as a possibility and viable, however they are both long term strategies and such products are not developed and released overnight.”

E-Tech Performance LLC is a division of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., whereas the parent (Extreme) owns the majority of the start-up entity. The entity is still in its very early phases having less than 9 months in existence. E-Tech will still need additional funding dedicated to their assigned projects, staffing, and management. At this time, it is sharing services with Extreme to save cost.

E-Tech Performance will also offer consulting services to other inventors and developers in the same space. E-Tech’s key asset is its former research and data from Extreme’s early days as consultants to a company that dabbled in HHO technology, as well as its relationships and access to testing laboratories.

“Offering these services will help fund critical research needed for product development,” added Burlum, “Again on the product side, we are only in the concept phase, as I mentioned this is a long term and endeavor.”

“It was if we had to wait until the market caught up with our knowledge capital.”

E-Tech Performance’s overall goal is to develop a new engine management system aimed at helping the auto industry meet demands of emissions reduction initiatives while increasing fuel efficiency and performance of vehicles. E-Tech and its parent, Extreme, visions the platform as an option for engine and vehicle manufacturers to utilize in creating conditions where the software helps more of the “rubber to meet the road,” and for vehicles that utilize internal combustion engines to be more environmentally friendly.

2015 World Green Energy Symposium Combines Policy Making-Industry, Offering Sustainable Economic-Environmental Solutions

March 21, 2015

Washington, D.C.

Source: World Green Energy Symposium recognizes current and former WGES Nova Award Honorees, whom have answered the call to bring public policy and technology together in solving environmental and economic challenges.

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.

New Green Technology for Emissions Reduction is Discovered by Vehicle Manufacturer

November 9, 2014  Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, China

Syndicated from KOAM CBS News 7 Affiliate, Pittsburg, Kansas-

keshi 6 (2)Mr. Jiang Hanjun, CEO and President of the Chinese mining equipment manufacturer, Changzhou Keshi Group, discovers a powerful new green technology for vehicle emissions reduction offered by an emerging technology company from New Jersey.

Mr. Jiang and his team recently visited Ogdensburg, New Jersey in search of an emissions reduction solution for their explosion proof underground mining vehicles. They were introduced to a new emissions solution, the Smart Emissions Reducer (SER) offered by Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. (EES).

After meeting with Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of EES and his team, Mr. Jiang committed to partnering with Extreme in testing the Smart Emissions Reducer, the flagship product of the New Jersey based technology firm.

“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.

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

During his time at the podium, Burlum considered the challenges that communities are faced with in terms of transportation, and solutions, which may be more progressive in terms of environmentally friendliness and sustainability.

“We must bridge the gap where we are today, and where we want to be,” Burlum said.

One of the challenges, in addition to infrastructure, is the current fuel supply.

“The real source of the problem is not the vehicles, it’s the fuel,” said Burlum.

Burlum gave a nod to innovators who discovered fuel-saving technologies in their own backyards. Burlum said historically some automakers, like Ford, worked closely with “garage innovators”, who helped the big manufacturers develop better gas mileage.

Focusing on fleets and developing technologies within them, Burlum said, is one way to bridge the gap.

Additionally, this enhances job creation, said Burlum. He quoted a figure how for every billion in sales in the green industry, there are 7,000 direct and indirect jobs.

Following the World Green Energy Symposium, Burlum told The Alternative Press, “The World Green Energy Symposium was a great platform to have decision makers, industry professionals, community advocates, and professors IMG_20120621_072321from schools of thought sitting at the same table, discussing key concerns and solutions to environmental and economic stresses that society faces today. Not many forums have an all-inclusion of stakeholders from policy makers to the individuals and entities that must spend the financial resources to meet such initiatives.  Many parties were represented from many environmental and energy perspectives, encompassing green tech and green policy from the top to a local micro level. This complete inclusion allows for our society to consider the right options for the right geographical and demographical reasons. The World Green Energy Symposium also made available the ability for industry to partner together in mitigating technological and customer service challenges, thus providing the best products and services to the clients who engage in green policy practices.”
