American Power Group Inc. (APG) has received notification from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that its recent Clean Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Engine Conversion Submission has been approved for a selection of engines.
The approval applies to the following Intermediate Useful Life (IUL) engines (for the years 2012 to 2004):
- Volvo/Mack, D12, D13, E7, MP8, 11.9L to 12.8L
The submission used APG's latest V5000 Dual Fuel Turbocharged Natural Gas® technology, which is required to meet specific design, component and emission compliance criteria per the EPA Final Rule 40CFR Parts 85 and 86.
These 28 IUL approvals include APG's first dual-fuel conversion approval of the Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) engine technology, which meets or exceeds the current stringent EPA OEM certified engine emission criteria (2010 and newer). These IUL approvals are in addition to APG's industry leading 456 EPA approvals already received for Outside Useful Life (OUL) engines, covering six of the top seven OEM engine platforms for model years from 2009 to the mid 1990s.
Lyle Jensen, APG Corporation's President and CEO commented: "The magnitude and strategic importance of this first series of IUL approvals marks another important milestone for APG and has multiple value-add implications.”
