Energtek Inc., a world leader in the development of Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG) technology, announced that its fully-owned subsidiary, Energtek Philippines Inc., has been certified as a duly accredited participant in the Filipino Natural Gas Vehicle Program for Public Transport (NGVPPT).

The official Certificate of Accreditation was issued by the Filipino Department of Energy. Through the accreditation Energtek Philippines Inc. is entitled to convert and retrofit existing vehicles to operate on Natural Gas, as well as provide ongoing Natural Gas supply to the vehicles as fuel. According to the press release, the certification was issued after extensive field trials of the company’s CNG Lite(TM) fuel system for small vehicles.

The company’s CNG Lite(TM) system for small vehicles is particularly suitable for gasoline-powered tricycles, which represents one of the most popular forms of transportation in the Philippines. There are millions of these tricycles in the Metro Manila area, contributing to dangerous pollution levels.

The provision of gas through the NGVPPT program will allow the conversion of large numbers of gasoline powered tricycles to operate on Natural Gas, significantly reducing the nation’s dependence on foreign oil as well as pollution levels. CNG Lite(TM) is currently the only commercially-viable system that can be utilized for mass conversions of tricycles in the Philippines.

“NGVPPT accreditation is a major step for Energtek,” stated Energtek CEO Lev Zaidenberg. “This certification greatly aids the company in its plans to become a significant provider of Natural Gas to the large market of small vehicles in the Philippines.”

He continued, “The accreditation process was a lengthy one, requiring Energtek to perform extensive field tests over a long period to prove the effectiveness of the CNG Lite(TM) conversion system. Now that our CNG Lite(TM) fuel system has been approved for commercial application, it can be used to supply a cheaper and cleaner motor fuel that provides benefits for the entire population.”
