A Government Grant will allow local company HRDS Technology to test its breakthrough device that cuts Greenhouse Gas emissions produced by heavy vehicles, Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said.
“This is great news for the company and our environment,” he said.
“This $200,000 grant allows HRDS Technologies to work with the University of Technology Sydney to verify that its device, called Regenodrive, reduces the emission of carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals by heavy vehicles. It also reduces the amount of fuel the heavy vehicles use.
“On average, trucks use 25,000 litres of diesel every year, producing 67,500 kilos of C02.
“Using its Portable Emissions Measuring System, the UTS will conduct “real world” testing of Regenodrive. This will provide irrefutable evidence of the effectiveness of this new technology in cutting harmful emissions and reducing fuel usage.
HRDS Technologies Chief Executive Trevor Dunn said the company’s device cuts fuel usage and emissions by at least 30%.
“This grant gives us the opportunity to produce certified test results that are going to help market and sell our product around the world, including in the UK and Europe,” he said.
“We have orders for 20 devices in the UK once the tests are completed.”
