NAPLES, Florida, Sept. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Reduction in Diesel Emissions Could Exceed Carbon Footprint of Rome, San 
Francisco and Paris Combined

- Technology recycles 'Wasted' Energy, Generating Fuel Efficiency Gains In 
Heavy Duty Trucks

- Transformative E-mobility Business Backed by Successful Entrepreneurs and 
Major Industrial Leaders

Ecolution KWH, LLC ("Ecolution"), an e-mobility and power company, has received 
a U.S. patent for reusing wasted kinetic energy in refrigerated trailers used 
to distribute food and medicine. When combined with an electric or 
hydrogen-fueled truck, such as those being developed by Tesla and others, the 
Ecolution trailer accomplishes a total elimination of carbon emissions plaguing 
the multi-billion dollar global industry.

Ecolution's 'green perfect cycle(TM1), MARS(TM)system, replaces the diesel gas 
tank and TRU Genset units typically used in "reefer" trailers to refrigerate 
produce and medicine on the way to retail stores and outlets with swappable 
batteries. As a result, it can reduce the average weight of a refrigerated 
trailer by 1,200 pounds, increasing the hauling capacity of the trailer, while 
delivering greater battery life for the electric truck. 

The key MARS-patented innovation is the use of alternators connected to disc 
brakes in the trailer, sending power through a converter to a battery storage 
unit for on-demand energy, all within the reefer trailer. The company now has 
four patents pending in Germany, Japan, China, and South Korea. The invention, 
under research and development for five years, now goes into a prototype in the 
US, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

"The beauty of the discovery is in its simplicity, and because the battery unit 
is located in the trailer, second life Tesla and other electric vehicle 
batteries can be recycled, helping to eliminate yet another environmental 
problem," said Johanne Medina Then, Chief Executive Officer of Ecolution. 

"Almost everyone believes that e-mobility is the future for heavy-duty trucks," 
said Craig Bouchard, Executive Chairman of Ecolution. "Now we've delivered the 
business case. Refrigerated trailers (and train cars) create some of the most 
damaging environmental problems of our generation. Net-zero carbon emissions in 
food distribution is the only solution to this global problem."

"The use case for Ecolution is even starker at the point of delivery, where 
there is a shortage of cold storage space in grocery stores. Reefers are often 
placed for hours or days in the parking lot, burning diesel to power their 
generators while they wait. That creates a serious noise, health and 
environmental problem," said Johnny Then Gautier, Chief Technology Officer.

The Ecolution board includes several titans of industry, including: 

  -- Richard Giromini, former CEO and President of Wabash National Corporation,
     North America's largest producer of semi-trailers and liquid
     transportation systems; 
  -- Ernest Higa, President and CEO of Higa Industries Co., Ltd., and CEO of
     Wendy's Japan; 
  -- Jack Greenberg, former Chairman and CEO of McDonald's Corp; 
  -- William Farley, Industrialist, and Founder/ CEO of Fruit of the Loom; 
  -- Randolph Read, CEO of Nevada Strategic Credit Investments, and a close
     business colleague of philanthropist Michael Milken; 
  -- Craig Bouchard, Executive Chairman of Ecolution and founder of three
     separate billion-dollar metals companies 

The Ecolution patents also apply to the generation of electricity in commuter, 
subway, and freight train businesses.
