Clean Air Power has pioneered the move towards using natural gas to power vehicles by developing Dual-Fuel™ technologies that guarantee diesel engine performance, with significant cost savings and low carbon emissions.
An immediate solution to reducing carbon emissions produced by HGVs and CVs, Clean Air Power's patented Dual-Fuel™ system enables heavy duty diesel engines to operate primarily on natural gas, with diesel fuel acting as a "liquid spark plug".
Minimal changes are required to the existing diesel engine and by burning up to 90% natural gas, customers benefit from a combination of low emissions and high efficiency.
The company has been successful with its Genesis Dual-Fuel retro-fit product, which was developed for easy application to the European Euro 3 and 5 trucks. CAP is currently developing a U.S. Genesis-EDGE system.
Founded in 1991, Clean Air Power is an active technology developer with 65 patents held and pending. Operating on a global scale, with customers in the US, UK and most recently Australia, Clean Air Power is set for rapid growth. Its strong senior management team offers extensive experience and skills within the transport sector. Clean Air Power has installed its Dual-Fuel™ technology on more than 1600 vehicles around the world, some of which have been operating for over six years, completing around one million kilometres.
Clean Air Power's most recent investment has been to open a dedicated R&D facility in Leyland, Lancashire, UK, where the company can focus on further development of its retro-fit Dual-Fuel™ technology and its new OEM integrated engine technology.
This integration has been successfully achieved on DAF and Mercedes engines and will form the core of any Dual-Fuel™ application to an engine with OEM cooperation.
