Idle-Reduction Technology Partnership

Idle Reduction Technology Workshop January 30 2006


Idle-Reduction Technology Workshop

Webasto Continues Its Growth and Influence as an Innovator In The Climate Control Industry

In 1974, Webasto began operations in Canada & USA with In-cab air heaters & engine coolantpreheating for heavy-duty markets and sunroofs for light duty vehicles.

Privately owned company since 1901, Webasto invests heavily in research and development, with an emphasis on innovative products.

May 2004, WPNA celebrated 30-years of operations in North America with its new headquarters in Fenton, Michigan (USA).

With over 6,200 employees based in over 40 countries, Webasto services heavy-duty truck, motorcoach, transit, shuttle, school bus, marine, military, off-highway, RV and light-duty vehicle markets.


Idle-Reduction Technology Workshop

The Many Reasons Why Idle Reduction Hasn’t Become A Part Of Operating Procedure

Driver Habits

Traditionally Low Diesel Fuel Prices

Little concern for the environment

No financial consequences


Idle-Reduction Technology Workshop

The Cost Of Idling Is Impactful In The Air and Under The Hood


One liter of diesel fuel produces 2.8 kilograms of Green House Gases (GHGs).

An hour of idling produces 11.2 kilograms of GHGs.

A year's worth of idling (2,000 hours) produces over 20 tons of GHGs.

Engine Wear & Tear

Additional Engine maintenance required due to idling results in cost from $200-$2000/yr


Idle-Reduction Technology Workshop

The Idling Impact on the Wallet and on the Dependence on Foreign Oil

Wasted Fuel

Fuel waste due to unnecessary idling results in 0.8-1.5 gal/hour (NREL/TP-540-33629, EPA 420-R-02-025)

1.2 billion gallons a year of fuel are consumed in the US by truck idling

Operating Cost

Studies show annual idling cost range from $3000 to $7000 per truck


Idle-Reduction Technology Workshop

The Signs Of No-Idling Regulations Begin Enforcement

25-States in the US maintain maximum idling time stipulations.

Idling times vary from NO-IDLING (UT) to 15-minutes (NV).

Fines have ranged as high as $25,000 (Virginia Dept. of Environmental Quality).

Notable proponents include the California Air Resources Board, Environmental Protection Divisions, Air Quality Agencies, Department of Energy, Health Departments and local agencies

Light-Duty Vehicle Remote Starters Doing Damage

In 2004 over 4 million remote starters were installed in North America. The practice of remote vehicle starting and subsequent unnecessary idling is growing at an alarming rate of 12.6% annually. – source Martec Study

Without a change, in 2010 OEM and aftermarket remote start idling will contribute the following annual emissions:

195,350 Tons of CO

803 Tons of NOx

15,673 Tons of HC

6,363,698 Tons of CO2

-Source EPA Approved Laboratory

The Tonnage figures shown above do NOT include emission data from passenger vehicles idling not equipped with an OEM or aftermarket remote starting devise.

BlueHeat Provides No-Idle Solutions for Light-Duty Engine & Interior Preheating

Mounts under the hood, gets power from the battery, and is activated by timer or heater remote.

Heater circulates and preheats engine coolant to 180 degrees.

Blower fan activates, sending warm air to the interior.

No scraping windshields.

No-Idling for heat.
