Solutions partners with local fleets in giving the Smart Emissions Reducer a
trial run in lowering vehicle emissions while looking to increase gas mileage
in Jordan; yielding positive results on the ground.
2015, two local industry leaders in Jordan partnered with Extreme Energy Solutions
in testing the validity of the Smart Emissions
Technology. The device was put to the test in a series of real world, real time
conditions on both gas and diesel engines, on both medium and heavy duty commercial
and transit vehicles. Three different fleets were chosen to demonstrate the
Smart Emissions Reducer’s impact on multiple fleet situations.
first to agree to test the Smart Emissions Reducer device was Nicola Abu Khader
& Sons Company, or NASCO, the region’s largest dealer of aftermarket parts
and supplies for the automotive industry. NASCO agreed to have four of their
vehicle retrofitted with the device, including one Mercedes Actros long haul
truck, and three Mitsubishi Fuso-Canter delivery box trucks.
the 90 day trial period term, the NASCO fleet demonstrated a 9% fuel efficiency
gain while also obtaining an average of 20% decrease in overall harmful vehicle
emissions. All vehicles tested utilized diesel engine power plants. NASCO
agreed to continue to testing the Smart Emissions Reducer devices.
City Municipal Transit, or CMT, also vetted the product’s worthiness. CMT
experienced a range of emissions results at first, due to the many variables in
which these vehicles operate. The majority of the positive gains experienced
were in the direction of emissions reduction. CMT fleet comprised of Yutong
manufactured transit passenger buses outfitted with Cummings diesel engines. 20%
to 74% averages in harmful vehicle-engine exhaust emissions reductions were
Abu Khader, CEO of the Abu Khader Group, the parent company of NASCO, the
region’s largest auto parts supplier, and operator of car dealerships that
offer BMW, Daewoo, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Mitsubishi, and Opal vehicles, and
are private partners in the local bus transit system, City Municipal Transit; tested
the new green technology for reducing
emission, offered by an emerging technology company from New Jersey; agreed to
extend testing to other commercial fleets in which they influence.
will be great to demonstrate more consistent results with other fleets in the
region, thus making a stronger case for your device (the Smart Emissions
Reducer) to be needed in Jordan.”
Extreme Energy Solutions technical team
installed Smart Emissions Reducers on selected vehicles from multiple fleets.
Once vehicles were retrofitted with the devices, Extreme tech team members
would travel to Amman to follow up on the fleet’s progress, conducting
emissions testing at the recommended benchmarks. Fleets would report back their
fuel savings. At the end of each trial term, representatives of each fleet and
the Extreme Energy Solutions would review the data, and come to an
understanding of the devices capabilities.
Fannoun, General Manager of Fannoun Tires, also has partnered with Extreme
Energy Solutions, in testing the Smart Emissions Reducer, in Jordan, to help
lower fuel consumption and address the concerns about rising pollution problems
in the City of Amman. Fannoun also
operates Fannoun for Trade and Transport, a trucking and logistics company,
which is the test bed for proving the Smart Emissions Reducer’s ability to help
ten Fannoun trucks were retrofitted with the device, which too, yielded both
positive emissions reduction and fuel efficiency results. Fuel efficiency
varied from 2.5% to 4.8% average during the term of the trial program,
emissions reductions ranged from 20% to 30% average. Under their previous business
model, the fleet would have realized a return on investment on purchasing the
devices under a year’s time. Mercedes
Actros cab over semis with diesel powered engines were the test subjects of
of Amman continues to grow, and with growth brings more vehicles to the road. With
more vehicles on the road, brings the concern of increasing from more vehicle
traffic. Developing over the region is a haze, a major concern, with increasing
pollution as the possible contributor of this matter.
greatly appreciate the cooperation of the
Abu Khader Group-NASCO and Fannoun,” added Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and
President of Extreme Energy Solutions, “They have been very gracious have been
great partners in testing the device. We look forward in working with them in
the near future.”
trial testing with additional vehicle fleets within the Abu Khader-NASCO
network are set to begin in early September of 2015.
is a member of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, a network of the world’s
megacities committed to addressing climate change. The majority of Jordan’s petro and diesel is
imported from outside the country. Saving money on fuel is not only a matter of
interest in the commercial market, but of interest by public entities. Emissions
reduction is always important to preserving air and water quality to any metro
area with a growing population.
Extreme Energy Solutions Team was led by Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of
Extreme Energy Solutions and recognized Fuel Economy Expert Michael Holler, who
visited Jordan multiple times during the partnered testing program. Extreme
Energy Solutions is headquartered in Ogdensburg, New Jersey, and is the
provider of other technology that delivers on having a positive impact on the
environment, in addition to Smart Emissions Reducer.
