The timber industry has been hit hard in this recession. But there might be a bright spot for anyone who drives a diesel vehicle â€” especially a logging truck.
I just spoke to Bob Potchen, former trucker and Vice President of Precombustion Technologies Inc. (PTI). After two and a half years of R&D;, PTI has come out with â€śThe Cellâ€ť.
â€śThe Cell is a stepping-stone into an energy independent future,â€ť says Bob. â€śIts unique design allows it to produce large quantities of higher quality Hydroxy Gasâ„˘ â€” a unique combination of hydrogen and oxygen created from water.â€ť
It looks kind of like a battery. Once itâ€™s incorporated into the vehicle, operators will see improved gas mileage, more power, better acceleration, and lower emissions.
Sound too good to be true? Check out the real work trials on their website â€” www.thecell.cc. Trucks are experiencing (on average) a 50% improvement just in mileage.
Bob say that extensive emissions tests have also proven that The Cell allows older and worn engines to exceed the upcoming Tier 4 EPA emissions standards.
The only downside is that you may have to stand in line for this new product. The Cell has only been on the market for five months and operating only through word of mouth. Bob says already “the company is bursting at the seams.â€ť
