MVT Solutions has announced that it is developing a partnership with two recognized emissions testing organizations with the aim of bringing a comprehensive fuel efficiency and emissions evaluation package to the trucking industry.
MVT Solutions is a subsidiary of Mesilla Valley Transportation and provides fuel economy testing based on race car engineering. MVT plans to partner with the University of California, Riverside, and MeasureMission in its new endeavor.
“With the University of California, Riverside (UCR) and MeasureMission we can expand our capabilities and our independent third-party evaluations,” said Daryl Bear, lead engineer and COO at MVT Solutions. “Together, we can provide efficient and accurate emissions and fuel economy testing services that can be used for developing and refining a wide range of technologies.”
The partnership with UCR will be headed by Kent Johnson, the principal investigator of emissions and fuels research at the College of Engineering - Center for Environmental Research and Technology. Andrew Burnette, CEO of MesureMission, provides emissions testing services that aim to bring new fuel efficiency and pollution reduction products to market.
“We believe that the testing method employed by MVT Solutions can produce valuable emissions measurement data because some of the same factors that impact fuel economy also affect emissions,” said Johnson. “Their model can help us develop more realistic emissions standards and regulations.”
