CHICAGO, Illinois – December 14, 2009 – With the recent declaration by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that greenhouse gases are dangerous pollutants, municipalities and businesses throughout the country are faced with the challenge of reducing the emissions and fuel consumption of their fleet vehicles. Recaptured Energy Technologies has an efficient, workable solution.
“The EPA ruling, coupled with the international climate summit in Copenhagen and President Obama’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gases, shows that the U.S. can no longer wait to curb emissions and increase fuel economy of transit and fleet vehicles,” said Sam Jones, president and founder of Recaptured Energy Technologies. “Time is of the essence. Recaptured Energy Technologies offers viable economic solutions that can make an immediate impact without the cost of purchasing new hybrid vehicles.”
Recaptured Energy Technologies has developed a unique hydraulic braking and propulsion system that it is designed specifically to be retrofit to existing vehicles. The system captures wasted brake energy and converts it to an auxiliary source of energy to power the vehicle. The realized reduction in harmful emissions from a renewable source of energy is a “green” benefit and the reduction in fuel consumption and added years of useful life are economic advantages as well.
“Many organizations think they will be forced to purchase a fleet of new hybrid vehicles to meet governmental standards,” continued Jones. “These decision makers need to know that Recaptured Energy Technologies has a system in place that can save them millions of dollars and help them meet any federal guidelines head-on.”
