Energtek Inc., a leading developer of Absorbed Natural Gas (ANG) technology, recently announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Energtek Philippines Inc. is now certified as an accredited participant in the Filipino Natural Gas Vehicle Program for Public Transport (NGVPPT), per the Filipino Department of Energy.

The accreditation correlates with the company’s short and long-term goals and entitles Energtek Philippines to convert existing vehicle to operate on natural gas.

“NGVPPT accreditation is a major step for Energtek,” Energtek CEO Lev Zaidenberg stated in the press release. “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.”

The certification was awarded after extensive field trials of the company’s CNG Lite(TM) fuel system for small vehicles, especially suitable for gas-powered tricycles, one of the most common means of transportation in the Philippines.

The NGVPPT program allows for the conversion of large numbers of tricycles to operate on natural gas, significantly lowering the nation’s dependence on foreign oil and reducing pollution levels. According to Energtek, CNG Lite is currently the only commercially viable system that can be utilized for mass conversions of tricycles in the Philippines.

“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,” Zaidenberg stated.
