The Dual-Fuel™ technology by Clean Air Partners (www.cleanairpartners.com) has enabled the first heavy-duty truck in Japan to meet the country's emissions guidelines, some of the toughest in the world. Dual-Fuel allows engines to operate on both natural gas and diesel simultaneously. The majority of the fuel burned is natural gas, and diesel serves as a pilot for combustion that ignites under the heat of compression to produce substantially less nitrogen oxide and particulates than engines that burn only diesel.
