Moving from recycling to fuel efficiency, here are two videos from one of the other popular talks this summer, which was about trailer tails. First, some facts from AeroTrailers: TrailerTail: Good for America.
ATDynamics, Inc. and its fleet customers have redefined the shape of the world's most fuel efficient tractor-trailers. ATDynamics trailer aerodynamics technology is reducing the fuel consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions of leading North American trucking fleets by 12%. The company's TrailerTail® rear-drag aerodynamics technology alone will deliver over $20 billion in fuel savings to trucking companies and consumers over the next decade by streamlining the airflow at the back of 2 million long-haul semi-trailers pulled on US and international highways.Next, the physics involved from STEMCO - Aerodynamics 101.
ATDynamics founders, employees, and investors are dedicated to delivering immediate environmental, economic and social benefits. Over the next five years, TrailerTail® technology is projected to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by as much as the US electric vehicle industry.
Reduce drag, improve fuel efficiency and increase safety with TrailerTail® by STEMCO.I'm fond of saying "the most fuel-efficient vehicle is a moving van." Here's to making the moving vans more fuel-efficient, too.
