Global Impact Initiative
Clean carburetion for the 21st century.
Groundbreaking SmartCarb fuel system technology—applied to the mass market.
Imagine cutting ground-level pollution emitted by light transportation in developing urban areas by 50 percent. How might a city like Dhaka, Bangladesh be transformed if commuters could significantly reduce harmful carbon emissions, while also saving 30 percent in fuel costs?
Our Global Impact Initiative aims to take SmartCarb technology to the mass market, where motorcycle and scooter pollutants in crowded cities are a leading cause of pulmonary disease.
It’s our responsibility.
Carbureted small engines are major carbon emitters, including lawn and garden equipment, personal generators, and marine engines to name a few. By applying to small engines what has been proven in off-road motorcycle racing—where performance and consistency are just as important as emissions control—all of humanity can benefit.
If brought to the mass market, commuters in developing nations will drastically reduce their fuel consumption while also reducing pollution for years into the future.
Our Global Impact Initiative is actively developing models that will meet the pricing demands of developing markets. The focus of SmartCarb Fuel System’s Global Impact Initiative is to build partnerships with conscientious investors, suppliers, original equipment manufacturers, and national departments of energy and environment to bring SmartCarb to the people who need it most.
Nearly twenty million motorcycles are sold annually in India alone, while just over three million cars are sold there during the same period. Motorized two-wheelers are by far the most ubiquitous form of motor-powered personal transportation in developing nations. Ground-level pollution from motorcycles and scooters with traditional, inefficient carburetor fuel systems is responsible for the third-leading cause of death in many cities across the globe.
Due to their design and market factors, these small engines cannot easily employ complicated and expensive electronic fuel injection systems and catalytic converters in order to reduce emissions.
Governments in developing countries are experimenting with electric light transportation solutions to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards and to improve the health of their citizens, but there are serious drawbacks to electric two-wheeled transportation, including finite supply of minerals required for batteries, the environmental impact of mining for those minerals, spent battery disposal, severe lack of charging infrastructure, and the use of coal-fired power generation to produce the electricity needed to charge the batteries.
These limitations call for bridge technologies in the near term. Clean, simple SmartCarb technology can provide that bridge. Improved combustion efficiency, provided by the SmartCarb’s superior fuel atomization capabilities, reduces harmful emissions output and conserves fuel. Internal venting allows it to compensate for temperature and elevation, while also eliminating toxic fuel spills and evaporation.
