Today a product’s success is no longer built just on brand quality, but also on efforts to help achieve sustainability and the protection of our environment. In addition to consumer concern, governments around the world have initiated regulations and new standards to limit carbon dioxide emission and evaporation into the atmosphere – this includes the low permeation standards for gasoline powered equipment introduced by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resource Board (CARB). For manufacturers throughout the supply chain, making products to meet such standards has become a key element for survival.
Global initiatives for alternative energy have also driven the gasoline powered equipment industry to adapt to greener fuel such as ethanol or ethanol blend gasoline. As a result, OEMs of outdoor equipment used in lawn and garden maintenance and construction tools are challenged to create new designs and technologies to enable the use of ethanol in small engines and to overcome the impact these new fuels and additives have on their equipment.
