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.
