American Power Group Customer Surpasses 100 Dual Fuel Truck Conversion Milestone

WW Transport, Inc.'s Three Year Conversion Rollout Validates the Reliability, Durability and Value of APG's Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel Conversion Technology

LYNNFIELD, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 10, 2016) -  American Power Group Corporation (OTCQB: APGI) announced today that its largest customer, WW Transport, Inc., ("WW Transport") is now operating over one hundred APG Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel outfitted heavy-haul Class 8 trucks within their fleet.

WW Transport was founded in 1991 and is headquartered in West Burlington, Iowa. They are experts in specialized freight. In addition to normal hauling of flatbed and heavy-haul type business, WW Transport specializes in its award winning food grade bulk hauling, both liquid and dry bulk, as well as their refrigeration division. 

Kyle Weuve, WW Transport's Chief Financial Officer, stated, "We are strong believers in the long term economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas as an alternative transportation fuel as evidenced by the significant investments we have made thus far in natural gas fueling infrastructure and natural gas vehicles. During the past three years, APG's dual fuel conversion technology has become an important and growing piece of this commitment due to its ease of use, reliability and retention of diesel-like power and torque which is critical for our heavy-haul routes. The reduction in harmful diesel-related emissions is an added bonus towards achieving our corporate and customer driven sustainability goals." Mr. Weuve added, "We believe that APG provides the best natural gas dual fuel conversion technology at the lowest total cost of ownership available in the market."

Lyle Jensen, CEO of American Power Group, commented, "WW Transport has become a natural gas sustainability leader utilizing natural gas fueling stations, dedicated natural gas trucks and APG's natural gas dual fuel conversion technology to meet today's logistics needs with a cleaner alternative fuel solution. There are not many fleets in the United States that have more than 100 heavy-duty trucks running on some form of natural gas so APG is pleased that our field performance has achieved this customer satisfaction milestone. APG has carved out a specialized niche where our EPA and CARB qualified dual fuel systems are the only effective natural gas solution in the 13L to 15L Class 8 truck performance range for power and torque and diesel-related emission reductions. Fleets with heavy-haul routes and tanker fleets no longer have to compromise driver satisfaction with under-powered natural gas systems. We look forward to supporting all customer sustainability objectives with our high-horsepower alternative fuel solutions." 

About American Power Group Corporation
American Power Group's subsidiary, American Power Group, Inc. provides cost effective sustainability products and services that promote the economic and environmental benefits of our alternative fuel and emission reduction technologies. Our patented Turbocharged Natural Gas® Dual Fuel Conversion Technology is a unique non-invasive software driven solution that converts existing vehicular and stationary diesel engines to run concurrently on diesel and various forms of natural gas including compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, conditioned well-head/ditch gas or bio-methane gas with the flexibility to return to 100% diesel fuel operation at any time. Depending on the fuel source and operating profile, our EPA and CARB approved dual fuel conversions seamlessly displace 45% - 65% of diesel fuel with cleaner burning natural gas resulting in measurable reductions in nitrous oxides (NOx) and other diesel-related emissions. Through our Trident Associated Gas Capture and Recovery Technology, we provide oil and gas producers a flare capture service solution for associated gases produced at their remote and stranded well sites. These producers are under tightening regulatory pressure to capture and liquefy the flared gases at their remote and stranded well sites or face significant oil output reductions. With our proprietary Flare to Fuel™ process technology we can convert these captured gases into natural gas liquids ("NGL") which can be sold as heating fluids, emulsifiers, or be further processed by refiners. Given pending federal methane capture regulations, we anticipate our next generation NGL processing systems will have the capability to convert the residual flared methane into pipeline quality natural gas that can be sold for a variety of dedicated and dual fuel vehicular, stationary, industrial and household uses.
