Laesa's Research and Development department, headed by Dr. Scott Cramton, has had tremendous success in reducing the amount of fossil fuels required by these engines.
New technology has allowed Laesa to create a new bio-fuel gas to supplement the carbon based fuels thereby lowering the fuel consumption and making a significant reduction in green house gases.
GENERAL MOTORS EMD 20 CYLINDER 645-E4B DIESEL GENERATOR
LAESA RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY
Currently, ECI Conversions, and Laesa, Ltd. have completed retrofitting a General Motors EMD 20 cylinder generator set. This unit will be the first of its kind to use tri-fuel in an effort to reduce carbon emissions and diesel fuel consumption.
A mixture of gases will be directly injected into the engines cylinders providing 90% of the fuel required to operate the engine at full load. These units produce 2,500,000 watts of energy to the community.
