“For each battery it replaces, uSTART removes 100 to 500 lbs of lead from the environment, and saves 50 lbs in vehicle weight positively impacting fuel economy."
ONEONTA, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 18, 2018
Ioxus, designers and manufacturers of smart power solutions based on its widely used ultracapacitor technology, today announced that it has been named to the 2018 Top Green Providers list by Food Logistics magazine, a publication dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain. The annual award recognizes companies whose products, services or exemplary environmental stewardship promote sustainability within the food and beverage industry.
“We take great pride in being named to the Food Logistics Top Green Providers list,” said Mark McGough, CEO and president of Ioxus, Inc. “For each battery it replaces, uSTART removes 100 to 500 lbs of lead from the environment, and saves 50 lbs in vehicle weight positively impacting fuel economy. In addition, while many solutions can claim positive environmental benefits, to truly have an impact they must make financial sense. Depending on the type of operation, Ioxus has customers that have eliminated as many as 18 batteries and saved over $7,000 over a vehicle’s lifecycle.”
As a replacement for a Group 31 battery, the uSTART energy storage smart power solution improves starting reliability and extends battery and starter life, and has jump start capabilities, which eliminates costly and time-consuming roadside service calls for engine starting issues. Installed by an OEM or as a retrofit as a drop-in Group 31 battery replacement, uSTART systems are widely used in Class 6 package and other delivery trucks and are now available for Class 7 and 8 day cab trucks and tractors with up to 12-liter engines.
“The agricultural sector and food supply chains at large have long recognized the importance of environmental stewardship for long-term sustainability in both business and for future food production globally,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Food Logistics remains committed to promoting those in our industry who understand their leadership role in sustainability and work to raise the bar with new products, services and strategies each year.”
