WATCH: How New Diesel Technology Cuts Fuel Consumption
Manufactured in the United States by BoostBox H2, an energy technology company based in Boulder, Colorado, the patented technology is a fuel cell-based hydrogen on demand solution. The BoostBox H2 system’s rugged design has been tested to the same real-world and strict standards required of truck manufacturers around the world (Freightliner, Cummins, Mercedes, etc.) with millions of miles of on road use as well as by some of the most capable testing partners including the University of West Virginia and Element Materials Technology.
Among diesel fuel consumers such as the trucking industry, the number one pain point and largest expense is fuel. With over 8.5 million older Class 8 vehicles on America’s roads today, fleet owners and owner/operators know this all to well. Other critical issues among truck operators include lowering maintenance costs and extending the life of their vehicles. Until now, and the unveiling of the BoostBox H2 technology, existing solutions for fuel efficiency have revolved mostly around aerodynamics and the use of filters to reduce emissions. In reality, these filter technologies actually produce a negative impact on fuel efficiency.
With an average fuel savings of 10 percent, and with an average reduction in overall emissions of 65 percent, the return on investment of the BoostBox H2 is estimated to be between 12 and 16 months.
