PATENT ISSUED FOR BREAKTHROUGH POLLUTION CONTROL SYSTEM FOR AUTOS AND TRUCKS

 SILVER SPRING, Md., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Lean Power Corporation of Silver Spring announced it has been awarded a U.S. patent on its design for an air pollution control system for automobiles and trucks. The system has application to millions of cars and trucks worldwide without catalytic converters. Use of the system can reduce dangerous air pollution levels in hard hit areas such as Mexico City, Santiago de Chile, Budapest and Taipei.
 The heart of the patented breakthrough is a powerful signal processing device that can optimize engine performance and reduce dangerous pollution, including carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen.
 The system is modular and easy to retrofit.
 "We believe the Lean Power system can make a huge improvement in the environment. Air pollution in cities can be reduced quickly by installing this device on older cars and trucks," said Robert Turner, LPC's vice president.
 A major benefit of the Lean Power system is fuel saving, bringing typical fuel economies of 10 percent in city driving and 15 percent in combined city-highway operation.
 The Lean Power system has been extensively tested in Mexico City. It has been shown to adapt readily to the environment, including high altitude driving. The system will function with any type of fuel, including gasoline and alcohol mixtures. LPC tests were carried out at Ford de Mexico's Engineering facilities in Mexico City.
 LPC has been contacted by a number of companies about its development. The system can work with nearly any car that uses a carburetor (except diesels). Demonstrations are scheduled in Poland and in India.
 "This system can help both the developed and developing world," said Turner. "It has application in Western Europe -- in Ireland, France and Spain -- where it can reduce pollution, just as it can help in India, Mexico and Chile. In Eastern Europe there is a huge fleet of Ladas, Skodas, Volgas, Dacias and Polenez cars and light trucks that can use this system and save fuel while improving the environment."
 Environmental benefits depend on the vehicle type and overall engine efficiency. On the average carbon monoxide will be reduced by 60 to 70 percent; hydrocarbons by 20 to 40 percent and NOx by 15 to 25 percent.
