STWA's Developing Technology to Help Truckers Comply With New EPA Standards for Trucks
Company's ELEKTRA™ Technology May Hold Key to Widespread Compliance With New Legislation
SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) - STWA, Inc. (
The EPA today announced new regulations today to reduce fuel consumption and emissions for medium and heavy-duty trucks, including tractor-trailers, school buses, delivery vans and heavy-duty pickups. The rule is intended to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by 10% to 20%, based on a vehicle's size. Earlier this year, the Obama administration directed the EPA and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to set the first fuel efficiency standards for both medium- and heavy-duty trucks in order to reduce greenhouse gases.
STWA's ELEKTRA™ technology, featured in "Popular Science Magazine" in February 2009 is designed to enable better vaporization of fuel, allowing fuel injectors to spray a finer mist, which burns more quickly, completely and efficiently. This means that the fuel can create more power from every drop, improving fuel economy and reducing emissions at the same time.
"ELEKTRA™ operates on a simple premise: finer fuel droplets burn more completely and cleanly and should lead to more efficient combustion and better efficiency," said Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte, Chairman and CEO of STWA, Inc. "The potential application of our technology to the truck market is substantial, as there are over 2.1 million tractor-trailers in the U.S. alone. We are optimistic that our ELEKTRA™ technology could prove very valuable under these new rules and regulations and are working to make that a reality as quickly as we can."
