The U.S. Department of Energy reported Thursday that global greenhouse gas emissions reached their highest levels ever in 2010. Carbon emissions rose 6 percent year-over-year, with 564 million more tons of carbon into the atmosphere than in 2009. This means that levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have exceeded even those outlined as the worst case scenario by climate scientists a mere four years ago. This sort of dramatic rise in emissions highlights the necessity for broad, societal changes that will aid in reducing carbon emissions now and into the future. However, in this flagging economy, there continues to be a need to match environmental idealism with hard economic realities.
DynoValve Offers Lower Emissions, Better Fuel Efficiency
SaviCorp (SVMI) is an automotive technology company that works on the cutting edge of efficiency technology. Their newest product, the DynoValve, is precisely the sort of technology that offers a combination of economic and environmental efficiency that provides a clear path forward in fighting global warming. The DynoValve provides an electronically balanced alternative to the classic positive crankcase valve, a technology that hasn’t been updated since the 1960s. By using a computerized electronic switch, the valve optimizes engine function, reduces emissions by 50 percent in most vehicles, and increases fuel efficiency. Testing on the SaviCorp’s Fleet pilot programs showed excellent results, with an increase of 13%–30% on average MPG with certain municipal engine platforms. Some cases even showed an increase in miles per gallon of 50 percent or more.
Improved Efficieny = Economics and Ecology
These sort of results coming from a simple, easy-to-install valve are precisely the sort of solution needed. The DynoValve offers an excellent means for both saving consumers money by improving their fuel efficiency while also reducing carbon emission by decreasing the amount of gas being burned. This sort of win-win situation benefits consumers and the environment alike with the only real losers being the oil companies.
