EPA certificate for Clean Air Power
The remaining state where the system hasn't been EPA-certified is California, known for extra stringent environmental regulations. A separate application has been made there in hope of obtaining the local CARB (California Air Resources Board) certification, which is probably a matter of time. Meanwhile, the newly received EPA certificate applies to Volvo's D13 and Mack's MP8 engines.
Clean Air Power is one of the pioneers in the field of blending diesel fuel and natural gas, with over 20 years of experience. According to the company, over 2700 vehicles equipped with Clean Air Power's dual-fuel systems are in operation across five continents worldwide. The Genesis-EDGE Dual-Fuel system replaces part of the diesel fuel dose with natural gas, thus cutting the running costs (approx. 15 cents a mile) and emissions of harmful exhaust gas components (CO2, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter), all the while keeping the original engine's power, efficiency and durability.
Genesis-EDGE is the only commercially available system certified to the stringent U.S. 2010 levels. They are found in 2011, 2012 and 2013 model trucks.
