Pittsburgh to promote biofuel transportation using Optimus technology

The City of Pittsburgh will increase the biofuel conversion solution provided by Optimus spreading the facility to 20 additional public works trucks.

The city will also deploy 5000 gallon biofuel storage as well as refilling station with 100 trucks capacity, designed by Optimus.

Earlier, the Optimus’ Vector biofuel conversion system tested for 18 months by authorities on the International trucks used for garbage collection was found successful.

According to city experts, the garbage and recycling trucks are the biggest emission contributors due to their fuel consumption and their low gas mileage.
