Oregon Startup to Showcase Technology that Turns Natural Gas into Affordable Alternative Automotive Fuel
Bend, Ore. – August 3, 2015 – Onboard Dynamics, an innovator in alternative refueling technologies, will highlight its natural gas compression capabilities at the first-ever White House Demo Day on Tuesday, August 4.
“U.S. policymakers increasingly are evaluating how alternative fuels can impact our country’s overall energy use,” said Rita Hansen, CEO of Onboard Dynamics. “With Onboard Dynamics’ unique natural gas compression technologies, vehicle owners can save money and significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by refueling with natural gas or renewable natural gas instead of traditional fuels.”
Founded to commercialize technology developed by and licensed from Oregon State University (OSU), Onboard Dynamics has received financial support from the U.S. Department of Energy, ONAMI (Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute), Oregon BEST, and OSU, as well as strategic partners and private investors. The company’s first commercial products will be available in mid-2016.
“In a short time frame, we have made tremendous progress in making natural gas both a cost-effective and convenient refueling option, thanks to our incredible team and the support we have received at the state and national level,” said Hansen.
