Hybrid Fuel Systems has received a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Conversion System Certificate of Conformity for the company’s dual-fuel diesel to natural gas conversion system. The Certificate of Conformity was declared effective January 19, 2006.
Applicable to the dual-fuel diesel system installed on Mack engine families, the Certificate of Conformity allows Hybrid to now pursue domestic conversion opportunities primarily in the refuse hauling segment of the US marketplace.
The conversion systems can displace up to 80% of the diesel fuel, with a reduction in NOx emissions by at least 23%. Operation can return to diesel-fuel only mode at the flip of a switch.
This is the first dual-fuel diesel Certificate awarded to the company.
