WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) today announced that Angelina Galiteva has joined the Emissions Advisory Group to lend her expertise to the Company's vehicle emissions reduction initiative. The Emissions Advisory Group (the formation of which was announced earlier this month) is focused on developing potential applications for Tecogen's breakthrough patented emissions reduction technology to automotive gasoline engines. The ultra-clean emissions technology has been rigorously tested by independent labs and shown to reliably reduce the emission of criteria pollutants contributing to smog (CO and NOx) to near zero levels for natural gas engines.
Ms. Galiteva is Founder and Chair of the Board of Renewables 100 Policy Institute, a California-based non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of 100% renewable energy solutions. She is also Chairperson of the World Council for Renewable Energy (WCRE), Principal of New Energy Options Inc., a member of the Board of Governors of the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) responsible for running the state's electricity market, Chairperson of Tecogen's board of directors, and serves as a Strategic Consultant on Sustainable Energy and Environmental Issues. "I look forward to working with the other advisory group members to confront the automobile emissions challenge head-on using Tecogen's patented advanced emissions system," said Ms. Galiteva.
"As is evidenced by the recently announced Phase 2 order (detailed in a prior press release) for emissions retrofit kits, our technology successfully reduces the emission of harmful pollutants from spark-ignited reciprocating engines to levels on par with fuel cells," said Robert Panora, Tecogen President, COO and lead of the Advisory Group. "We welcome the expertise and guidance of Ms. Galiteva as we work to apply this revolutionary technology to automotive engines."
Tecogen manufactures, installs, and maintains high efficiency, ultra-clean, combined heat and power products including natural gas engine-driven cogeneration, air conditioning systems, and high-efficiency water heaters for residential, commercial, recreational and industrial use. The company is known for cost efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable products for energy production that, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint.
