CEO, Effenco

Work trucks consume almost as much fuel going nowhere as they do going somewhere slowly. And when a truck spends half of its entire time going nowhere… now there’s an opportunity! Enter Effenco’s smart engine management retrofit that helps vehicles that start and stop a lot become vastly more efficient. When tested in NYC garbage trucks, the Montreal based company’s technology demonstrated 30% or more reductions in fuel consumption, CO2 and NOx, with a 48% reduction in engine run time. No wonder sales are up 500% per year over 2 years and the largest commercial vehicle manufacturer in Europe is now a customer!
