GULFPORT, Miss., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American Truck Showrooms (http://americantruckshowroomsatlanta.com) understands that no matter the party, ecologically friendly solutions to real-world problems must be adopted quickly to preserve our environment. The company has developed a system to treat waste water created by Semi Truck washing facilities and is actively seeking partners to build-out this system and scale it for widespread use.
A "green" truck washing facility can now clean the thousands of gallons of water polluted by road grime, degreasers, road salts, detergents and other chemicals found on Semi Trucks - and on America's roadways.
This was a lesson quickly learned by Louis Normand, CEO of American Truck Showrooms (http://americantruckshowroomsatlanta.com), when he first looked into building a semi commercial truck wash. The current regulations he faced were substantial and the trend toward even greater regulation was growing. Future regulatory hurdle promised to be daunting and prohibitive to the task of building a semi truck wash. But, instead of giving up on plans for a semi truck wash built on site with American Truck Showrooms large semi truck dealership, Normand embraced the challenge to build the ultimate green semi truck wash. One that not only cleans semi trucks but cleans the environment too. The beginning concepts were simple. Don't use chemicals to clean trucks, recycle and conserve as much used water as possible and then capture any solid road toxins harvested in the semi truck wash process and rid the environment of them once and for all.
The result? Overwhelming city approval and state-wide acclaim from the governor, clean water laboratories and the academic community. American Truck Showrooms Green Systems simple concepts, and its state-of-art technology were recently issued a patent by the United States Patent Office in February of 2016. American Truck Showrooms may be the cleanest, greenest operating truck wash in the world. The closed loop zero discharge filtration system works, first by utilizing hot water and steam to clean the Semi trucks. Utilizing hot water and steam eliminates the need to use detergents and chemicals. No chemicals and detergents - no pollution to clean up after the fact. Then, in order to conserve water, when the hot water and steam condenses and rinses away road grime, it has to be reclaimed and filtered in order to be re-used over and over again in the wash process.
Finally, in an effort to potentially eliminate the need for any city water to be used for truck wash purposes, (especially in areas like California and Arizona where shortages are a growing concern) an alternative water source may need to be maintained. In the case of the American Truck Showrooms Green Systems facility in Gulfport, MS., a 500,000-gallon retention pond serves multiple purposes. It provides the means to harvest rainwater, it collects run-off from the 18-acre site and it serves as a potential main water supply for truck wash boilers that create the hot water and steam to wash the trucks. Because of the multiple uses the water from the pond may have to serve, the water in the pond needs to be kept pristinely clean. Not the least of those uses is clean water for the boilers. Pumping polluted water into the boiler could clog pipes and valves, destroy the boilers and quickly wipe out profitability due to soaring maintenance costs. Considering the horrible amount of pollution that is stripped from each truck by hot water and steam and the reclamation of the water used, a clean retention pond seems all but impossible. The American Truck Showrooms Green Systems filtration process is so efficient the retention pond not only supports life, but helps creation of life.
The retention pond is teaming with exotic koi fish that not only thrive in this wastewater environment but they also spawn and reproduce. In this regard, the American Truck Showrooms Truck Wash System has effectively taken pollutants out of the environment and disposed of them leaving behind nothing but clean water. In fact the wastewater from this truck wash has been tested by NATIONAL TESTING LABORATORIES, LTD and has been determined to be drinkable. Of even greater note, however, is this process of cleaning some of the dirtiest most polluted water imaginable, has been accomplished without the use of chemicals. This is evidenced by the fact that koi fish feed on naturally occurring microscopic organisms. Without the presence of such, the reproductive process of the koi fish is muted. However, American Truck Showrooms retention pond has 100,000 plus koi that are actively breeding in a healthy eco-system after three years. Today, the retention pond of the American Truck Showrooms truck wash is teaming with life and serves as proof positive, a truck wash really can clean more than trucks. It truly can play a significant role in cleaning the environment.
The demands for environmental technologies are ever increasing and ecologically responsible, commercially viable products such as the American Truck Wash Green Systems will become the rule, rather than the exception. American Truck Showrooms (http://americantruckshowroomsatlanta.com) is now looking for a partner to further develop and produce their patented system.
