For Immediate Release:

May 15, 2016, New Holland, Pennsylvania

Source: Green Tech Company Extreme Energy Solutions offers the Smart Emissions Reducer Technology as an alternative solution in combating the EPA’s efforts to impose new rules that would significantly impact grass roots racing.

The technology first introduced to commercial fleets, improved upon, marketed and distributed by individuals involved in dirt track racing makes full circle as the Smart Emissions Reducer is brought back to where Extreme Energy Solutions got its roots, Orange County Fair Speedway and the local racing community.

Former Street Stock racer Samuel K. Burlum, now CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions Inc, implemented a plan to vet the Smart Emissions Reducer as a legitimate and affordable answer in reducing harmful toxic emissions on gasoline and diesel powered vehicles. Set out on a journey in 2010, Burlum and the Company were able to seek the blessing of the New York City Taxi and Limo Commission in allowing vehicles under the agency’s rulemaking to be retrofitted with the device.

Armed with having a CARB Executive Order Number (D-671) and permission to offer the device by the NYC TLC, Extreme Energy Solutions began to offer its product to commercial business fleets, municipal government fleets, and individual vehicle owners whom were interested in lessening their carbon footprint while also wanting to conserve on their need of fossil fuels.

In 2012, the Smart Emissions Reducer technology was tested coast to coast by municipal and county government, commercial business fleets, taxi cab fleets, and other interest parties across the nation. The consistency in pilot program test results caught the attention of engine and vehicle manufactures in search of emissions reduction efficiency technology. In 2013, Extreme Energy Solutions entered into relationships with these interested parties from the automotive industry.

Simultaneously, Extreme Energy Solutions was bolstering its cache of lab test results, when it enrolled Roush Industries to test the device under controlled conditions, which would yield results up to 65 percent in emissions reductions with the side benefit of fuel economy up to 7.5% in fuel efficiency gains.

The Changzhou Keshi Group, a specialty vehicle manufacturer of mining equipment vehicles would later test the Smart Emissions Reducer in under strict laboratory conditions, reporting back up to a 5% potential increase in fuel efficiency, on a 5.9 liter Cummings diesel powered engine. Keshi also discovered the device could reach up to a 63% reduction in harmful toxic emissions during these test protocols. A battery of tests would demonstrate the Smart Emissions Reducer would deliver 20% to 50% in consistent emissions reductions, while offering no less than 2% to 3% in minimal fuel economy engine efficiency gains.

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

“The total emissions averaged over 6 modes tested in the categories of CO, K/M, and N% were decreased by 22%, 25%, and 18% respectively,” added 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 SER estimates an ROI of 1.2 years and a total fuel savings of 10,000 liters (2641 gallons) of fuel over the expected lifespan of the SER,” continued Corrado.

As of recent, Free-Col Labs had conducted a series of Mass Spectrometer Test, to verify the validity of the Smart Emissions Reducer device, and with much surprise, the technology performed much beyond the expectation of its original estimated form and functionality.

Ed Grimm. Vice President of Infinity Industry Controls and a NASA Certified Calibrations Inspector, vetted the results and the technology in saying that the findings were consistent with previous testing conducted on the device.

Burlum and Extreme Energy Solutions wanted to test the device within the racing community, so they reconnected with their old friend, Veteran Driver Tommy Vigh Jr., whom was undecided on his 2016 racing season campaign.

Burlum shared his Company’s plan to test the Smart Emissions Reducer on the popular 602 GM Crate Engine, and quickly partnered with Crate Motor Connection in testing the device on the engine dyno while it would be up to Vigh to test the technology in real time conditions on the track.

Crate Motor Connection tested the device and found that it had no adverse effects on the 602 GM Crate engine, while it did show some increase to engine/fuel efficiency. Results on the track are too early to tell, however Extreme Energy Solutions and Veteran Tommy Vigh Jr. are committed in finding out all of the effects and benefits the device can provide to his fellow racer, as their alliance extends well into the 2017 racing season.

Extreme Energy Solutions had partnered up with schools of thought in testing the device, such as Clarkson University, and the SAE Snowmobile Team, where the University’s entry was outfitted with the Smart Emissions Reducer in 2013 national competition, giving the fuel economy challenge win over to Clarkson. King Abdulla University of Science and Technology (KAUST) had also tested the SER.  The device was furthered tested and implemented into practice as a part of the Liberty Motors Entry into the Progressive X Prize Fuel Economy Race in 2010.

The technology continues to be tested in the field, with projects continuing in Jordan, China, and domestically in the United States. The Smart Emissions Reducer has been introduced to markets in the US, Canada, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, China, Italy, and South Africa. Executives and Tech experts with Extreme Energy Solutions met with Lamborghini in July of 2015; with the intent the vehicle manufacturers would test the device in their lab and on their super cars.

Nearing the 2016 racing season brought the usual habits of many local racers; the last minute scramble to prepare their equipment for another race season; the start of the 2016 race season also brought much concern to the racing community when the EPA made the announcement that it was going to ban the conversion of street vehicles for off road racing usage.

The EPA argued that these vehicles originally designated for street use, during the conversion process, the vehicles emissions control equipment would be removed from the vehicle, adding to the roles vehicles that would now contribute to omitting harmful toxic vehicle emissions; vehicles that were never intended for racing competition.

The EPA continued their argument that it was against law to remove emissions control devices and equipment however hobbyist and racers would push back. With the help of organizations like SEMA, racers were able to put to bed this argument so they can go on to race another day.

However Samuel K. Burlum thinks is just a matter of time the EPA will challenge the industry and sport once again,

“EPA has been very aggressive as it relates emissions reduction and fuel efficiency of vehicles, as their decisions have proven over the past years. Racing is not immune to the EPA’s desire and racing sanction bodies should be looking for alternatives in policing themselves with some sort of effort satisfactory enough to keep the agency at bay.”

“The Smart Emissions Reducer has proven itself as a serious consideration and solution to this issue, for it does not negatively effect the performance of the engine, is cost effective, and has the data to uphold the argument about its effectiveness in lowering harmful vehicle emissions,” continued Burlum.

Burlum also was quick to point out other larger racing bodies have taken steps toward recognizing the industries contribution to environmental impact.

“NASCAR has even taken steps in trying to minimize racings impact on the environment. It ushered in the switch from carbureted engines to the mandate of fuel injection due to the benefits of fuel economy it provides. Then we saw NASCAR switch to an ethanol enriched blended fuel. It’s just a matter of time before they begin to explore other options to self-police this issue.”

The Smart Emissions Reducer message can be found on the sides of the #92 Extreme Kleaner/Extreme Energy Solutions sponsored Dirt Sportsman Modified race car driven by Veteran Tommy Vigh Jr., as it states on the bottom of the door, “Go Green with the Same Machine!”

This message is also extended to the #H2O Energy Flow/Extreme Energy Solutions sponsored Dirt Sportsman Modified wheeled by the Rookie Sportsman driver Jimmy Devitt.

The message is even more pronounced on the side of Connor Otten’s #11 Dirt Sportsman Modified, seen at competition at both the Orange County Fair Speedway and Accord Speedway.

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.

Emission Released by Cars Can be Reduced

June 27, 2012  ROCKFORD

Syndicated from WIFR CBS News 23-

IMG_20120627_142526 Protecting the community is not the only thing on the Rockford Police Department’s mind, they are also working hard to save people money by updating some of their vehicles.

Smart Air Fuel Saver LLC and Extreme Energy Solutions installed a device in a number of detective vehicles and general services vehicles today that reduces emissions released by the car.

While at the same time the device also boosts cars fuel mileage by half a mile per gallon. Cost should not be a worry, the device is expected to pay itself off in less than a year and save municipalities anywhere from three to seven thousand dollars annually.  Larry Robertson, of Smart Air Fuel Saver hopes this is just the first step of many.

“As we move forward one of the big benefits for the children in Rockford that go to school is lower emissions on school buses. That is also in our future to be able to kill emissions on buses that are idling and children having to breathe those emissions as they move forward.”, Roberston.

One day the company hopes that all cars will be made with this feature when they roll of the assembly line. Samuel Burlum, CEO of the Ogdensburg, New Jersey based company, Extreme Energy Solutions, shared his vision of seeing this device become standard equipment on most new vehicles.

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.”
