TARC Achieves Success through Combustion Management Program 

Radcliffe, IA - After two and one-half years, a business partnership between Mirenco (OTCBB: MREO) and Louisville’s Transit Authority of River City (TARC) has resulted in a real environment winner by reducing tailpipe emissions over 75%. TARC maintenance director Jimmy Buckner describes the success, "Mirenco tailpipe exhaust analysis program made us aware of the individual engine problem. With their data we now can proactively fine-tune each diesel engine, based on real time combustion deterioration." Mirenco’s professional combustion analysis program, links the Federal transient engine certification, the SAE J-1667 procedure and real time engine combustion management. 

Louisville tailpipe emission testing and reports are performed three times a year. This ongoing and continuous emission testing is incorporated into TARC’s fleet combustion analysis program at a cost of forty-five dollars per vehicle per test. TARC management then reviews testing results and vehicles needing service are scheduled for maintenance. One silver bullet the Louisville fleet has over other public transit fleets is their decision to incorporate Mirenco DriverMax fuel management system on approximately half of their buses. This device allows TARC’s maintenance department the option to reduce the fuel flow to the engine prior to the time consuming, expensive, option of tearing into the internal parts of the engine. In other words, if the engine has worn to the point where normal maintenance service cannot achieve the expected emission and performance level from the vehicle, TARC can proportionally reduce the available fuel flow from the vehicle’s fuel tank by using Mirenco’s DriverMax hardware and software. 

Building on the success achieved by Louisville’s public transit fleet, Mirenco is currently completing real time, baseline, particulate emission testing involving one of the largest transportation fleets in Iowa totaling 6,000 diesel powered vehicles. The new Iowa Tailpipe Program includes continued tailpipe testing, reports, and DriverMax units priced into a five-year analysis program. This Iowa fleet has the potential to achieve the same level of success TARC of Louisville has made in combustion management. Tailpipe pollution from this Iowa fleet could be reduced by up to 5600 tons over the five-year program. It is anticipated many more Iowa fleets will join the Iowa tailpipe program as information and progress unfolds.
