Propane Fuel Technologies LLC has initiated operations in the U.S. as the exclusive North American distributor of CHM Trucktec GmbH & Co. KG's diesel-propane bi-fuel solutions.

CHM Trucktec's TTG CP 210 system, which is designed primarily for trucking applications, displaces up to a third of diesel fuel consumption. Liquid propane autogas is stored in an on-vehicle tank, and an evaporator converts the propane to a gas. The gas is then injected into the truck's intake system and burned concurrently with the diesel.

Bret Chandler, managing director of Propane Fuel Technologies, tells NGT News that the West Virginia-based company has partnered with longtime vehicle upfitter Fontaine Modification to perform the autogas conversions for fleet customers.

The company is in its early business-development stages, and Chandler notes that the first applications of the CHM Trucktec systems will be on drilling rigs at Triana Energy's natural gas wells. Triana, which has decades of experience in natural gas exploration and production in the Appalachian Basin, is the parent company of Propane Fuel Technologies.
