Even though we are only a few months into the new administration, President Obama has made it clear that he is taking an aggressive stance on transforming the current domestic energy policies into a more environmentally-friendly system. The steps taken by the president are not unusual as most industrialized nations have already enacted environmental initiatives to decrease greenhouse gases.
Analysis indicates that at least 30% of the greenhouse gases are produced from the trucking industry while the rail industry follows in close second. Analysts of a 2007 report named “Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Freight Trucks” found that the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) produced by the U.S. trucking industry increased more than 69% from 1990 to 2005. This is not a surprising result as the tons per mile ratio increased from about 800,000 in 1990 to about 1,300,000 in 2004, while the truck industry’s efficiency decreased by at least 10% during this timeframe.
According to the European Union, the trucking industry must take action to reduce emissions, increase fuel efficiency, as well as reduce energy spending. Some companies may feel that in order to meet these requirements, they will need to invest in an entirely new fleet of vehicles. This type of change could potentially bankrupt more than a handful of companies. GreenChek provides companies with an option to increase the efficiency and reduce the emissions produced by its existing fleet of vehicles.
GreenChek has developed an innovative technology that transforms distilled water (H20) into its base elements of hydrogen and oxygen, which are two of the most abundant elements on earth. The company’s Onboard Hydrogen Generation and Injection (OHGI) system then injects the hydrogen and oxygen into the existing engine. As the hydrogen is burned in the engine, water vapor is produced and is released into the atmosphere. The OHGI technology can be installed to virtually any existing combustion engine regardless of the type of fuel used and actually enables the engine to generate more raw power with less fuel.
With millions of high-polluting trucks on the road, GreenChek’s OHGI technology allows companies to transform their existing fleet of vehicles into more fuel efficient and environmentally-friendly modes of transportation. The OHGI technology provides businesses with an opportunity to select a more cost effective solution to meet the new global emissions expectations without having to replace their entire fleet of vehicles.
