Dynotech Environmental Systems has obtained provisional equipment component certification from California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair. BAR’s certification is mandatory for legislated programs such as Ontario’s Drive Clean. Final certification is expected next month. “This unlocks the door to sales of our equipment into markets all over the world, including the important Phase II market in Ontario,” said Frans Stamm’ler, Vice President of Marketing. Including Dynotech, there currently are five certified chassis dynamometer companies in the world.

Ford Motor Company has announced support for proposed U.S. legislation providing consumer incentives to purchase vehicles that use alternative fuels and advanced technologies. The bill will provide tax credits based on performance measures, helping make alternative fuel vehicles more affordable during early market introduction. Tax credits will be available to purchase or lease a variety of technologies and alternative fuels vehicles, including, hybrids, fuel cells, dedicated alternative fuels, and battery electric. “This is the kind of breakthrough relationship between the auto industry, environmentalists and Congress that is focused on the consumer and will help accelerate demand for cleaner, more fuel efficient, vehicles in the marketplace and put them on the road earlier and in higher volumes,” said Jacques Nasser, President and CEO of Ford Motor Company.
