Emission Controls Corp. (ECC), a publicly held Delaware Corporation (EMNO) announced Apr. 24 that it has engaged the services of Michael C. Shetley to complete the research and development program for its new Natural Resources Fuel Reformer (NRFR) prototype. According to the company, Shetley brings to ECC experience in emission controls and fuel management systems for internal combustion engines. In 1962, he worked with Holman & Moody, Inc., Ford Motor Company's World Wide Factory Racing Operations until 1971. During his tenure there, he handled all special development programs such as Cobra, Mark IV, Mark V and J car development and worldwide racing teams for these vehicles. He was involved in the development of Pantera, Omega and Talladega Ford, as well as the Holman & Moody marine engine program. In 1972, he took over Rolls Royces' Vintage Motor Coaches, specializing in frame-up restoration. In 1975, Shetley worked directly with Ford Engineering and was responsible for mold and chassis design, parts coordination, EPA Certification, DOT requirements and production of the first replica T-Birds that carried full warranty and were marketed through selected Ford dealerships. Shetley partnered with Ralph Moody in 1978 and developed the 84-mile per gallon diesel car, and manufactured high mileage cars sold through Lincoln-Mercury dealerships. The company claims that throughout the 80's and 90's he has designed and built numerous neo-classic cars and a Fuel Management System. ECC is the developer and holder of all rights to the patented Natural Resources Fuel Reformer (NRFR), which according to the company, is designed to deliver hydrocarbon based fuels to an internal combustion engine in such a manner as to exhaust near-zero toxic emissions and pollutants and increase the efficiency of the engine. When the NRFR is attached to an internal combustion engine, the company claims it accomplishes two things: 1) it reduces harmful exhaust emissions and pollutants to near-zero levels, and 2) it increases the efficiency of the engine. By breaking down the molecular structure of hydrocarbon fuels, the NRFR produces a reformed fuel which the engine can burn cleanly and produce little or no pollutants, according to the ECC. ECC says it has designed and completed construction of a new electronic prototype of the NRFR, which Shetley and ECC and will refine and make ready for commercial application. It is anticipated that the new NRFR will be ready for commercial use within six months.
