Exhaust Retrofit Technology and
Alternative Fuel Trucks

There are many reliable, efficient, and cleaner vehicle options available to reduce the environmental impact of your truck. Below please find basic information about the exhaust retrofit technology options and alternative fuel trucks that are eligible for rebate funding through the Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program. Discover the exhaust retrofit device and alternative fuel truck to suit your business needs!


Exhaust Retrofit Device

Exhaust Retrofit Technology

To reduce exhaust emissions, including particulate matter (PM), hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO), and other air pollutants from diesel engines, an exhaust retrofit device can be installed on new or existing internal combustion engines for vehicles.

Some examples include:

Hybrid Electric Diesel Truck

Hybrid Electric Diesel Truck

A hybrid electric vehicle combines an electric propulsion system with an internal combustion engine to achieve improved fuel economy over a conventional vehicle. A hybrid electric vehicle produces fewer emissions than a gasoline or diesel vehicle equivalent, with further reductions occurring when the internal combustion engine is shut down while the vehicle idles.

Compressed Natural Gas Truck

Compressed Natural Gas Truck

A compressed natural gas vehicle is powered by the combustion of compressed natural gas (CNG) as an alternative to other fossil fuels. CNG is a cleaner burning fuel, significantly reducing carbon and particulate emissions during vehicle operation as compared to a gasoline or diesel vehicle equivalent.

Battery Electric Truck

Battery Electric Truck

A battery electric truck stores energy in rechargeable battery packs, utilizing an electric motor rather than an internal combustion engine for propulsion. Battery electric trucks release zero tailpipe emissions, contributing no pollutants directly from vehicle operation.

Biodiesel: Can you tell the Difference?

Biodiesel

Biodiesel is an advanced biofuel made from agricultural co-products and byproducts such as soybean oil, other natural oils, and greases. Biodiesel is a domestic, renewable, cleaner-burning diesel fuel replacement for diesel engines which:

Consult your truck's engine manufacturer and your local biodiesel fuel provider to determine which blend of biodiesel works best with your equipment and adheres to the factory warranty standards.  

Switching to biodiesel is convenient! There are several local fuel providers that can supply biodiesel to your fleet.
