Oil Purification Systems, a provider of fluid cleaning technology, announced that The National Association of Environmental Professionals has selected the OPS-1 onboard oil refining system as the 2009 Best Available Environmental Technology. NAEP says it selected the OPS-1 system based on its ability to help fleet owners reduce oil consumption, cut oil maintenance costs and extend equipment life while also minimizing negative effects to the environment.
“We are pleased to recognize a product like the OPS-1 system that is demonstrating excellence in environmental improvements,” says Robert Cunningham, NAEP Awards Committee chairman. “Oil Purification Systems has displayed, with noted results, an innovative method to reduce oil consumption and provide significant environmental impact, all while helping trucking fleet operators save money.”
NAEP says it also recognized OPS for its contribution in the effort to decrease America’s dependence on oil. “We are confident that our technology will continue to play an even greater role in environmental sustainability efforts, while also helping companies save money in oil maintenance costs, for many years to come,” says Greg Slawson, chief operating officer for OPS, based in Shelton, Conn.
