ST. JOHN'S, NL -- (Marketwire) -- 10/22/08 -- Environmental Control Corporation ("EVCC") (OTCBB: EVCC) is pleased to announce that it will be attending The Green Industry and Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO 2008). GIE+EXPO is North America's largest showcase for outdoor power equipment -- representing a considerable opportunity for EVCC to meet with the industry's largest engine manufacturers, OEM suppliers, trade associations and end consumers. The event will be taking place October 23rd-25th, 2008 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
Announcement for Engine and Equipment Manufacturers Attending GIE+EXPO 2008
Concerned about the U.S. EPA's NEW Phase 3 emission standards for small SI engines, finalized in September 2008? These new standards, being phased in between 2010-2012, will reduce the allowable HC + NOx emissions by as much as 38% from current Phase 2 levels (Class I and Class II engines). These regulations, coupled with the continual shift towards light weight, high power, and cost effective equipment, will act as a significant obstacle to Manufacturers of Lawn and Garden Equipment in North America.
Thankfully, Environmental Control Corporation (EVCC) is here to help. EVCC has developed a Catalytic Muffler that is more effective in reducing harmful gas emissions than any other technology currently available. With proven reductions in HC + NOx of up to 98.9%, EVCC's linear technology can help you not only meet, but greatly exceed Phase 3 standards. In addition, EVCC's simplistic yet unique design is typically smaller in size compared with most OEM mufflers, and provides equivalent (or better) sound attenuation than the OEM -- eliminating any need for an additional exhaust after-treatment system.
To learn more about this technology, or to schedule a meeting with an EVCC representative at the GIE+EXPO 2008 at the Kentucky Exposition Center, contact Steve Norris at email@example.com.
