Increase Market Awareness of APG's Next Generation of Low Carbon Dual Fuel Solutions
ALGONA, IA / ACCESSWIRE / June 7, 2023 / American Power Group Corporation ("APG") (OTC PINK:APGI) announced today they have signed a collaborative Vehicular Dealer/Installer Agreement with Nat G® CNG Solutions, LLC (Nat G®) to market and service APG's next generation of low carbon V6000 Dual Fuel diesel engine conversion solutions for existing heavy-duty Class 8 trucks.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Nat G® is a leading provider of alterative fuel systems serving public and private fleet operators with a wide range of vehicle sizes ranging from light-duty carpool vehicles to long-haul Class 8 tractors. Their Houston CNG/RNG and Propane Conversion Center is fully licensed by the Texas Railroad Commission and is a Ford Factory Qualified Vehicle Modifier (Ford QVM Installer) with CNG/RNG and Propane Certified Technicians. Regarding natural gas fueling tanks, Nat G® is a Hexagon Agility Approved Service Provider (ASP) and a CSA Group qualified natural gas cylinder inspector. Nat G® also has experience building and servicing natural gas refueling facilities. Their primary service coverage area includes Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana.
Chuck Coppa, APG's CEO/CFO stated, "We look forward to working with Nat G® to advance adoption of APG's V6000Dual Fuel Technology in a key alternative fuel region of the United States. Texas is an anchor state in the region with 25 different Interstate Highway routes and ranked as the #1 state in the U.S. with over 3,500 interstate miles to support Class 8 transportation. The heavy-haul industry requirements in the region are a perfect match for APG's V6000 Dual Fuel Solutions that can displace 50%-60% of diesel with lower cost and cleaner burning natural gas fuel without any loss of power or torque."
Mr. Coppa, added, "The four-state coverage area listed for Nat G® also has some of the most favorable diesel to natural gas price spreads which generate the highest net alternative fuel savings in the U.S. A recent late-May fuel survey of Fast-Fill CNG and Diesel interstate truck stops located in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico show that operating APG's Dual Fuel System at interstate highway diesel displacement rates of 55%-60% would generate estimated net fuel savings of 11% to 17% over 100% diesel usage. Additionally, 58% of the truck stops surveyed were selling a B20 biodiesel blend that further reduces the dual fuel carbon footprint for Class 8 trucking. This is a ‘win-win' for both fleet economics and helping to meet the industry's Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) sustainability objectives."
"APG's Dual Fuel Systems are a practical solution available TODAY that reduce emissions from existing diesel-powered fleets and lowers their carbon footprint dramatically when using renewable natural gas." Nat G®'s CEO, Dennis Foose commented. Dudley Westlake, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Nat G® added, "We look forward to collaborating with APG to get the word out about the real-world benefits of Dual Fuel in our coverage area that can save on fuel costs as well as support the ESG objectives that public and private fleet operators, seek to meet."
