Recent Developments

-The Company has announced that its RunWise-equipped refuse vehicles have recorded more than four million miles on the road. The RunWise Advanced Series Hybrid Drive System captures more than 71% of a vehicle's otherwise lost braking energy and uses stored energy to save up to 4,300 gallons of fuel per year, per truck. (From a press release on June 7, 2016)

-The Company announced that its RunWise Hydraulic Hybrid Drive Transmission fulfills proposed fuel-economy standards, unveiled in mid-June by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The new standards call for large diesel-powered vehicles such as refuse trucks manufactured from 2021-2027 to use 16% to 24% less fuel depending on their size by 2027. There are more than 200 refuse haulers equipped with the RunWise hydraulic transmission that have reduced fuel consumption by 43% on average compared to conventional diesel fuel refuse haulers. The reduction is nearly double the proposed requirements from the EPA. Additionally, the California Air Resources Board has also certified the RunWise transmission, paired with Cummins Engine Co.'s 2015 model-year engine, as a validated technology to help improve fuel economy and efficiency in California refuse fleets by up to 50%. (From a press release on September 21, 2015)

-The Company announced that the city of Orlando, Florida, U.S. launched ten new Autocar E3 hybrid refuse trucks featuring the Company’s RunWise Advanced Series Hybrid Drive System. The launch of the ten trucks completes the city’s plans to expand its refuse truck fleet. Feedback from the City of Orlando indicated that the new trucks provided an average fuel savings of 48%, reduced brake changes, and increased productivity. A case study was done for Orlando’s first nine RunWise trucks indicating that the nine vehicles would provide a combined USD 2.8 million in savings over a ten-year period.
