Pittsburgh Expands Use of Optimus Technologies’ Biofuel Conversion Systems

Optimus Technologies today announced the City of Pittsburgh has agreed to expand its use of Optimus’ EPA-approved, biofuel conversion solution to an additional 20 public works trucks. Further, the city will deploy an Optimus-designed, 5000 gallon biofuel storage/refilling station at its main garage that supports over 100 trucks. Through Optimus’ solution, which reduces lifecycle emissions over 80% and fuel costs up to 25%, the city will reduce their overall emissions as required in its Pittsburgh Climate Action Plan version 2.0. The plan targets to reduce overall greenhouse gases generated by the city by 20 percent between 2003 and 2023.
