Company is the first in autogas industry to earn global certification for Gilbarco® Encore® S LPG retail dispenser.
GEORGETOWN, Texas –– Jan 7, 2014 –– As alternative fuel technology continues to advance, CleanFUEL USA, an industry leader in propane autogas technology, has taken additional steps to meet the most rigorous standards for propane autogas refueling by gaining Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listing for the industry leading Gilbarco Encore S liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) retail fuel dispenser. The dispenser also holds National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) approval.
CleanFUEL USA receives Encore 700 S and Encore S cabinets and electronics directly from Gilbarco, and completes the autogas dispenser with UL-listed components. The finished product results in a top-of-the-line autogas dispenser, typically installed at retail settings with public access and controlled clientele, and features full retail capabilities for Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. The dispenser is also available as a single or dual-sided unit.
Propane autogas is the third most widely used transportation fuel globally, and is proven to be the most attractive option from an economic and environmental standpoint. Already the leading alternative fuel in the United States, propane autogas costs an average of 30 to 40 percent less than gasoline, and up to 50 percent less than diesel. The lowest greenhouse gas emitting fuel, vehicles fueled by propane autogas emit 20 percent less nitrogen oxide, 60 percent less carbon monoxide and up to 25 percent less greenhouse gases.
"As we continue to install autogas refueling stations throughout the world, we must take steps to validate our technology performance and safety," said Curtis Donaldson, founder and managing partner of CleanFUEL USA. "Partnering with Gilbarco and adding a UL-listed dispenser to our product lineup signifies our commitment to exceeding customer expectations in alternative fuel dispensing, and highlights our continued leadership in the autogas industry."
