April 18, 2014 By    

BL Energie USA, a joint venture of BL Energie Canada and Blossman Services, is now providing Environmental Protection Agency- and California Air Resources Board-certified systems for diesel displacement systems. BL Energie USA will develop, certify, market and sell diesel displacement systems for heavy-duty Class 7 and 8 trucks. Prins Alternative Fuel Systems, the developer of vapor, liquid and direct-injection engine technologies, will be the technology provider for BL Energie USA.

According to a press release, the diesel displacement technology allows existing diesel engines to be converted to a blend of propane autogas or natural gas. The system blends up to 35 percent propane autogas into a diesel engine, displacing 35 percent of diesel fuel.

Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas, will discuss the technology further May 8 at the 2014 Alternative Clean Transportation Conference (ACT) and Expo in Long Beach, Calif. Weidie will deliver a presentation that focuses on his company’s entrance into the heavy-duty engine market with the Prins technology.
