Reducer a trial run in lowering vehicle emissions while looking to increase gas
mileage in Jordan.
industry leaders in Jordan tests Smart Emissions
Technology offered by Extreme Energy Solutions. NASCO and Fannoun begin field
testing of the device on buses and trucks.
the technology which is making an impact on vehicle emissions reduction on the
worldwide stage, now gets a chance to demonstrate its ability to lower harmful
emissions while increasing fuel mileage in Jordan. Over two dozen vehicles, including buses, trucks, taxi cabs, and personal vehicles are the first to recieve the Smart Emissions Reducer under the hood in the City of Amman.
Abu Khader, CEO of the Abu Khader Group, the parent company of NASCO, the
region’s largest auto parts supplier, and operator of car dealerships that
offer Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Mitsubishi, and Opal vehicles, and are private
partners in the local bus transit system, City Municipal Transit; partners in
testing the new green technology for reducing
emission, offered by an emerging technology company from New Jersey.
Extreme Energy Solutions technical team
installed Smart Emissions Reducers on selected NASCO vehicles used for local
and regional deliveries. In addition, four City Municipal Transit buses were
retrofitted with the new green technology. The trucks and busses will be
monitored for up to 90 days, recording emissions output at every 30 day
benchmark. NASCO/Abu Khader will monitor the fuel consumption of these vehicles
during that same time. At the end of the 90 days, an official report will be
made available of the results
"We are looking
forward to testing the Smart Emissions Reducer on our trucks and cars Jordan. If the device
demonstrates that it works as it has in the past in other places around the
world, it will be a very good thing to have in Jordan," added Nicola Abu
Khader, CEO of the Abu Khader Group, parent company of NASCO.
"Fuel is one of our
biggest costs in our business and we are excited to test this device. As our
population continues to grow, pollution continues to increase. So fuel efficiency while being able to reduce our carbon emissions
will be huge plus to our business and community. It is critical to prove the
cost savings of this device. Helping the environment is always important, and we open to exploring
affordable ways to do this," added Abu Khader.
Fannoun, General Manager of Fannoun Tires, also has partnered with Extreme
Energy Solutions, in testing the Smart Emissions Reducer, in Jordan, to help
lower fuel consumption and address the concerns about rising pollution problems
in the City of Amman. Fannoun also
operates Fannoun for Trade and Transport, a trucking and logistics company,
which is the test bed for proving the Smart Emissions Reducer’s ability to help
is important to lower air pollution in Amman,” stated Yasser Fannoun, General
Manager of Fannoun Tires and Partner in Fannoun for Trade and Transport, “We
are looking forward to the fuel economy benefit. We have over 50 trucks,
and use over 200,000 liters per month in fuel to operate our fleet; a 15%
savings would translate into $10,000 JD (Jordanian Dinar) (equivalent to
$14,100 US Dollars) that could be put to use in other areas of our business.”
is a major expense of doing business. We welcome Samuel Burlum and Mike Holler, and Extreme
Energy Solutions here to Jordan,” continued Fannoun.
vehicle owners expect to pay over $0.92 JD for a liter of gas (equals $ 3.48
per gallon in US Dollars) and $0.97 JD for a liter of diesel fuel in Jordan
(equals to $3.67 per gallon).
ten transport trucks for Fannoun were retrofitted with the Smart Emissions
Reducer by Extreme Energy Solutions, and will be
monitored over the next 90 days. Extreme Energy Solutions will return to Jordan
each month to assist in testing the emissions of each vehicle. In addition to
ten over the road transport trucks, four yellow taxi cabs were also retrofitted with the Smart
Emissions Reducer device. These vehicles are under the supervision of Fannoun
during the test period.
City of Amman is experiencing immense growth in its population, and with the
boom brings the need for people to travel, adding more vehicles to the road.
The demand for vehicles in Jordan is at its highest. With more vehicles on the
road, brings the concern of increasing pollution from more

is much potential and need for this technology in Jordan. Jordan is a member of the C40 Cities
Climate Leadership Group, a network of the world’s megacities committed to
addressing climate change. The majority
of Jordan’s gasoline and diesel is imported from outside the
country. Saving money on fuel is not only a matter of interest in the
commercial market, but of interest by public entities.
Smart Emissions Reducer was recently tested by the Changzhou Keshi Group, a manufacturer
of specialty mining equipment in China, whereas it was discovered Smart
Emissions Reducer provides up to a 5% fuel economy savings while tested on 5.9
liter engines produced by Cummings; while lessening the impact of emissions by

CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions and recognized Fuel Economy
Expert Michael Holler, who spent the week in Jordan to launch the partnered
testing program. Extreme Energy Solutions is headquartered in Ogdensburg, New Jersey, and is the provider
of other technology that delivers on having a positive impact on the
environment, in addition to Smart Emissions Reducer.
