Kaeser Compressors Inc. has published a new blog entry to company blog Kaeser Talks Shop: www.kaesertalksshop.com.

Authored by System Design and Engineering Manager Neil Mehltretter, the blog entry explains what artificial demand in compressed air systems is and gives a quick, easy and free way to help reduce it.

“While plants may take a look at the leaks in their compressed air system, they usually ignore artificial demand,” says Mehltretter. “Since artificial demand can account for 10 to 15 percent of the air in your system, this is an overlooked area of savings potential.”

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced that Ford Motor Company (Ford) is revising the fuel economy (mpg) estimates for six vehicle models to correct errors found in an internal Ford audit. Ford is required to correct fuel economy labels on affected vehicles within 15 days.

EPA oversaw Ford’s re-testing program and conducted independent tests to confirm the corrected results as soon as it was notified by Ford of the potential errors. Ford has agreed to implement enhanced validation tests for future vehicles under EPA oversight.

“This issue highlights the need for continued strong oversight of the fuel economy labeling program,” said Chris Grundler, director of EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality. “Consumers need to trust that fuel economy window stickers are giving consumers reliable and fair estimates of real world fuel economy.”

Cars currently in dealer lots will be re-labeled with new window stickers reflecting the corrected mileage estimates. Ford will re-label four versions of the Ford Fiesta, the Hybrid and Energi versions of the Ford Fusion, the C-Max Hybrid and Energi, and the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid.  Most labels will change between 1-5 miles per gallon (mpg). The largest change is for the Lincoln MKZ hybrid whose combined city and highway fuel economy value has been reduced by 7 mpg. EPA and DOE have updated their joint fuel economy site, www.fueleconomy.gov, to reflect the corrected numbers.

General Motors’ fleet of fuel cell vehicles has passed 3 million miles of hydrogen-powered, real-world driving, avoiding 157,894 gallons of gasoline consumption, GM estimates.

Some individual vehicles have accumulated more than 120,000 miles.

The fleet of Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell vehicles is part of GM’s 119-vehicle Project Driveway program, which launched in 2007.

Waste Management’s compressed natural gas trucks cut greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent and reduce particulate matter by 90 percent, Automotive Fleet reports.

The waste and recycling company earlier this month added six CNG trucks to its fleet in Chico, Calif. “We see an average annual reduction of 22 metric tons of greenhouse gases and 8,000 gallons of diesel with the CNG trucks,” district manager Ryan West tells the publication.

The company also uses route optimization software and its truck engines are programmed to shut down automatically after idling for five minutes to further cut emissions and fuel costs.

The company has used natural gas for heavy-duty trucks since the 1990s. Waste Management operates more than 2,200 alternatively fueled vehicles and says it has the largest fleet of natural gas collection trucks in North America.

Last year, Waste Management began building a facility to create pipeline-ready natural gas from its Milam Landfill in Fairmont City, Ill. At the time, the company said it expects it to begin delivering gas to the pipelines in late summer 2014.

HOUSTON —  Navy researchers say they have turned seawater into fuel that could power military vehicles for less than $6 per gallon.

The researchers announced this month that the seawater-based fuel successfully powered a remote-controlled model jet with a standard two-stroke internal combustion engine. Carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas extracted from Gulf of Mexico water were converted  into liquid hydrocarbon fuel using gas-to-liquid technology. The renewable fuel mirrors its petroleum-based counterpart and could be used in standard military engines.

“The potential payoff is the ability to produce JP-5 fuel stock at sea, reducing the logistics tail on fuel delivery with no environmental burden and increasing the Navy’s energy security and independence,” said Naval Research Laboratory chemist Heather Willauer in a written statement. ”This is the first time technology of this nature has been demonstrated with the potential for transition from the laboratory to full-scale commercial implementation.”

The fuel would cost $3 to $6 per gallon and would be commercially viable within 10 years, with sufficient research funding, according to the Naval Research Laboratory.

The scientists now are working to scale up the technology to increase fuel output. The ability to power military ships and aircraft with seawater-based fuel would be revolutionary. In fiscal year 2011, the primary fuel supplier to the Navy delivered nearly 600 million gallons to power the vessels.

HOUSTON — The U.S. exported an average 3.5 million barrels per day of petroleum products last year, the U.S. government reported Tuesday, a 10 percent increase from 2012.

The Energy Information Administration also noted that in December, the U.S. exported 4.3 million barrels per day of petroleum products, marking the first time those exports exceeded 4 million barrels per day in one month.

Refining: US exporting a ‘tidal wave’ of gasoline, other fuels

Distillate fuel exports – which include diesel fuels and fuel oils — reached more than 1.1 million barrels per day, an increase of 110,000 barrels per day over 2012.  Distillates destined for Central America and South America saw the biggest increase. That region was already the largest destination of U.S. distillate fuel.

Propane exports increased more than 75 percent to 300,000 barrels per day and half went to Central America and South America.

Gasoline exports increased 9 percent to 550,000 barrels per day, with exports to Africa, Mexico and Central and South America all on the rise. The U.S. also set a monthly gasoline export record in December, when it shipped 770,000 barrels abroad daily.

Crude exports: Houston fills with oil that can’t be shipped out

Still, despite the export boom, the nation imported  2.1 million barrels per day of petroleum products in 2013, though that figure is on the decline.

While the Gulf Coast is a net exporter of gasoline, the East Coast imports a substantial amount from Europe and Canada, according to the EIA. The East Coast also depends on imports of distillate and propane during cold winters when regional production and shipments from other parts of the U.S. still aren’t enough to meet demand.

Act 13 has helped increase protection for private water supplies and allowed the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to give larger fines. The Act also allowed DEP to start the Natural Gas Energy Development program, which distributes $20 million in grants over three years to help pay for natural gas vehicle conversion costs for fleet vehicles.

“Act 13 not only strengthened oversight of the drilling industry, it allows us to continue growing jobs while cleaning the air at the same time,” Corbett said.  “Natural gas, particularly from the shale formations here in Pennsylvania, is an abundant, affordable, domestic fuel that is putting this country on a path to energy independence.”

The $6.3 million that is currently being awarded goes to 19 companies and organizations making the switch to natural gas. Another $1.4 million, for a total of $7.7 million, will be given to more companies in later summer.

Voluntary program saves companies billions in fuel costs while cutting pollution

WASHINGTON — EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership is celebrating 10 years as a market-driven initiative that empowers businesses to move goods in the cleanest most energy-efficient way possible, saving businesses money while protecting public health and fighting climate change. Over the last 10 years, SmartWay has eliminated 51.6 million metric tons of carbon pollution, resulting in savings of more than120 million barrels of oil, and $16.8 billion in fuel costs.

SmartWay helps businesses move more goods more miles with lower emissions and less energy by helping accelerate the availability, adoption and market penetration of advanced fuel efficient technologies and operational practices in the freight supply chain, while lowering costs and improving environmental performance.

“SmartWay’s success over the past decade means cleaner air for Americans to breathe, and also lower shipping costs for businesses – a win-win,” said Janet McCabe, Acting Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. “The partnership uses innovative technology to help national and multinational corporations operate a more connected, clean and climate-friendly global freight network.”
