Las Cruces, New Mexico – June 18, 2019 – MVT Solutions, a provider of breakthrough fuel economy testing and design and development services for the trucking industry, today announced it is working to develop a partnership with two recognized emissions testing organizations. The strategic alliance will bring a comprehensive fuel efficiency and emissions evaluation package to the industry.
“With the University of California, Riverside (UCR) and MeasureMission we can expand our capabilities and our independent third-party evaluations,” said Daryl Bear, lead engineer & COO at MVT Solutions. “Together, we can provide efficient and accurate emissions and fuel economy testing services that can be used for developing and refining a wide range of technologies. UCR and MeasureMission are well known and highly respected emissions testing organizations and we look forward to working with them.”
Spearheading the effort to partner with MVT Solutions at UCR is Kent Johnson, Ph.D., principal investigator, Emissions and Fuels Research at the College of Engineering - Center for Environmental Research and Technology. “We believe that the testing method employed by MVT Solutions can produce valuable emissions measurement data because some of the same factors that impact fuel economy also affect emissions,” Johnson said. “Their model can help us develop more realistic emissions standards and regulations.”
Andrew Burnette, CEO of MeasureMission, provides emissions testing services that help bring new fuel efficiency and pollution reduction products to market. “The testing techniques applied by MVT Solutions to provide fuel economy measurements can be used in some cases to quantify emissions reduction benefits,” Burnette stated. “Our types of testing projects can utilize the same proven processes to generate highly accurate results.”
Certified fuel economy testing by MVT Solutions was developed from race car engineering and advanced vehicle test methods using sensors and recording systems that collect data on fuel consumption, aerodynamics, rolling resistance, driver behavior and other variables that affect fuel consumption. The data is analyzed using proprietary methods.
