"Emission Zero" Program Aimed At Improving Air Quality

Published on January 23, 2007 at 5:45 AM

Biofriendly Corporation announced today that four additional cities in Mexico will use the company's Green Plus® liquid fuel combustion catalyst to reduce air pollution and improve the air quality. The municipalities include Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city.

Robert W. Carroll, Chairman and CEO of Biofriendly Corporation said, "California knows what harmful emissions can do to air quality and it is incumbent upon us as good neighbors to be concerned about the environment south of our border too. We're proud that a California company like Biofriendly can assist Mexico to reduce harmful emissions."

Four newly elected mayors who have agreed to the Letter of Commitment include the mayors of Guadalajara, Zapopan, Tlaquepaque and Tonalá. These cities make up a majority of the greater Guadalajara metropolitan area and represent a population of over 4 million people.

Emisión Zero is a program introduced by the State of Jalisco in 2004 to address growing concerns over air quality in Mexico. Biofriendly's Green Plus has been tested extensively by state and local authorities and has been proven to significantly reduce harmful emissions and improve fuel economy. Other aspects of the Emision Zero program include certification and monitoring of vehicles that become part of the Controlled Tune-up Program, and the use of lower emission vehicles and alternative fuels.

Congressman Luis Alejandro Rodriguez, President of the Commission on Environmental and Water Development Resources for the Congress of Jalisco said, "Emisión Zero has been gaining momentum. Now, with the commitment of the major cities of the Guadalajara area we can really begin to make a difference in the environment." By signing this agreement, all of the gasoline and diesel-powered official vehicles in these cities will use Green Plus to reduce pollution.

The agreement will be signed by Dr. Alfonso Petersen Farah, the mayor of Guadalajara; Ing Juan Sanchez Aldana, mayor of Zapopan; Lic. Jose Hernan Cotes Berumen, mayor of Tlaquepaque; Lic. Jorge Vizcarra, mayor of Tonalá; and Mr. Adolpho Farland, President of Correct Action International the official distributor of Green Plus in Latin America. Also in support of the program are; Congressman Jorge Urdapilleta; Ing. Raul Huerta Romero, Coordinator of Environmental Programs of the State Congress of Jalisco; Ing Salvador Rosas Pelayo, General Manager of Warehouse and Distribution for PEMEX, Pacific Area.
