FARMINGTON, AR, Aug 02, 2011-- Highline Technical Innovations, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HLNT) has completed testing of the government vehicles in Greensburg, Kan., equipped with their Wildcat Hydrogen Booster, and the results are good.
The test results concluded that the hydrogen injector supplemental fuel system significantly cut the amount of harmful emissions produced by the city's government vehicles.
In mid-April, HTI donated the hydrogen fuel boosters to be used in vehicles operated by the city of Greensburg and Kiowa County schools to help the city continue their status as the Greenest City in America. Charlton Coats, chief executive officer of HTI Inc. and its subsidiaries -- Highline Hydrogen Hybrid Inc. and Hoss Motor Sports -- said he was pleased with the results and sees this as a good opportunity to share the benefits of hydrogen injection to the world.
"We are extremely happy that our test results show that our boosters are making a positive impact on the air quality of Greensburg," Coats said. "We expect the rest of the world to take notice; if it works in Greensburg it can work anywhere."
Michael Scott, an engineer with HTI's emissions testing department, went back to Greensburg in June to make sure the boosters were meeting expectations. Scott concluded that the vehicles were producing half the harmful gasses when the boosters were in operation.
Darin Headrick, superintendent of Kiowa County schools, said he's been pleased with the boosters so far. "We've been looking at the data in regard to our fuel efficiency and our emissions, and we've made improvements in both areas," Headrick said. "We're optimistic, especially from an efficiency perspective."
Headrick said there have been inquiries from townspeople in Greensburg who are interested in using the supplemental fuel systems on their agriculture equipment and heavy machinery.
Greenburg, Kan., was recently featured in a three-season television series on the Discovery Channel's Planet Green network as they rebuild their town as America's Greenest City after a tornado destroyed 95 percent of their city and claimed the lives of 13 people in May 2007.
