A New Technology to Reduce Carbon Emissions

May 16th, 2013 Posted in News

Automobile manufacturers tend to spend time researching new technologies that can help to make their specific automobile brands a bit better and more enticing to consumers. New technology has been introduced that could substantially reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from a vehicle. Strataclear could help transportation companies to earn a higher level of income and could make a significant dent in the amount of fuel costs that these companies have.

Strataclear is designed to capture up to 40 percent of the carbon emissions that trucks release. This is regardless of the specific type or model of the engine in the truck. During regular operation, the exhaust gas from a vehicle passes through a catalytic converter before it enters the Strataclear system. In recent tests, the system showed as much as 30 percent in savings on gas. Companies that have an average of about 30 trucks can save tens of thousands of dollars each year on fuel alone. This can help those companies to lower their transportation costs to customers, attracting more clientele than they could with their current costs and expenses.

Typically, trapped carbon is a toxic liquid that is required to be disposed of in a special way. This trapped carbon is normally buried or dumped at sea. Because of the costs associated with disposal, companies generally incur additional expenses that can often be very expensive. Strataclear technology offers a solid residual that is not toxic and can be used in a number of industries as recycled material. This means that instead of having to pay to have this material dumped or disposed of, these companies can simply use that material in other realms such as in construction or road building. The solid carbon residual can be used as a replacement material for sand when producing brick and it is a bit stronger and can resist temperature changes much better than traditional brick making materials.

Companies that offer transportation will be able to provide better contracts for their clients and save money themselves. The patent is still pending for this technology in spite of its obvious benefits. The outlook for transportation companies however is good. The technology would allow those companies to save money and to cut down on the amount of carbon emission that each truck produces which ultimately helps to keep the environment cleaner. More tests and research is being done to determine without doubt if this is a feasible technology that offers benefit to both company and consumer. As of now, it is estimated that the residual carbon can be sold to profit centers which would open up new streams of revenue for transportation companies, allowing them to provide even lower prices to customers.

New technologies are introduced virtually on a daily basis and as those technologies become available, many anticipate even better ways to clean up the environment and help to save on fuel costs and other expenses. If the Strataclear technology is used by transportation companies when it becomes available, there are definite benefits to both the company and its clientele.
