Mirenco Starts Round Two Of The BEEP Program 

RADCLIFFE, IA—August 8, 2002--The Bus Emissions Education Program (BEEP) was officially introduced on Wednesday, July 24 at the Iowa School Transportation Conference. The objective of the five-year program is to systematically make Iowa school bus tailpipes the cleanest and Iowa students the best educated regarding vehicle emissions in the nation. 

Round one tailpipe testing started in February and finished June of this year. The first objective of the program was to establish baseline tailpipe emission data and distribute the results to each school superintendent and bus maintenance director. The second round of testing began August 5 and will be completed in December on the state’s 4500 diesel school buses. Round two includes tailpipe testing plus the first phase of a proactive engine maintenance plan performed according to each engine manufacturer’s recommendations.

The proactive engine maintenance plan was introduced to more than two hundred fifty Iowa’s school transportation and maintenance directors who attended the School Transportation Conference. They learned the state average tailpipe emissions the end of June was 16.41%. The five-year plan is to have all Iowa’s school buses below the target of 15%. Everyone left the conference with excitement of direction, understanding and the challenge of making BEEP a success.

In comparing tailpipe emissions data, it is evident that each vehicle has its own real-time, combustion deterioration rate. It’s not a question of new or old vehicles, but a question of good verses bad combustion. Before a vehicle is equipped with Mirenco’s fuel management technology, Driver Max, it is important to understand the engine’s combustion condition. In some cases, engines are classified as terminal and require major overhaul. The vehicle would not benefit by installing Mirenco’s DriverMax system on a terminal engine.

Dwayne Fosseen, CEO of Mirenco, comments, "We have combined costumer service and product sales into one package. The Iowa BEEP program represents less than 1% of the nations school market that Mirenco has interest in pursuing. We believe BEEP could become a national program in the future for the 500,000 US school buses that safely carry our Nation’s future generation."
