University of Toledo joins EPA research
The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) and the University of Toledo signed a cooperative
agreement worth $1 million to develop advanced vehicle technology
that will maximize fuel economy benefits and minimize emissions.
EPA is providing $450,000 and the University of Toledo will cost
share in support of the three-year agreement.
The cooperative agreement will
focus on improving the components of a unique hybrid that uses
a hydraulic system as a secondary power source onboard the vehicle.
The hydraulic components will be optimized for smooth and quiet
operation, high fuel efficiency, and low emissions.
