The new microGreen™ Extended Performance Oil Filter from SOMS Technologies LLC, enables vehicles to operate up to 30,000 miles without an oil change. The microGreen Extended Performance Oil Filter is a spin-on filter that fits most light vehicles, as well as fleet classes 1-6. It has been proven through extensive laboratory and on-road testing to reduce oil maintenance costs by 65 percent, decrease the use of motor oil by 70 percent, and reduce the number of filter changes by 50 percent.
With over 600 million gallons of motor oil and 485 million oil filters sold in the U.S. each year, only 50 percent of these filters are recycled. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that ‘Do It Yourself’ oil changes generate in excess of 200 million gallons of used oil each year. One gallon of improperly disposed used oil can pollute one million gallons of water, threatening drinking water and our environment, and equivalent to the water supply consumed by 50 people in one year.
Designed as two-filters-in-one, the microGreen filter is designed as a spin-on filter and is installed in the same method as traditional oil filters. However, unlike standard oil filters that capture particles down to 25 to 40 microns, the microGreen oil filter captures particles down to 2 microns in size, keeping the oil like new with no change to the additive package. This cleans the oil more effectively – improving the engine life and reducing vehicle maintenance costs. Moreover, cleaner oil is better at reducing engine friction, which improves engine operating efficiency and therefore can increase fuel efficiency.
“The automotive market has not seen a material advancement in oil filter technology since the early 1970s,” said Miles Flamenbaum, CEO of SOMS Technologies. “By bringing this clean technology to the market, we are confident that we will change the behavior of fleet operators and individuals alike. We are excited to provide an innovative solution which offers tremendous cost savings, while making a significantly positive impact on our environment.”
SOMS Technologies launched its Fleet Adoption Program in April. The innovative program allows fleet managers to assess the microGreen Oil Filter and validate the cost savings and environmental benefits. As part of the program, SOMS offers a complimentary oil analysis to eligible companies that are conducted through an independent laboratory to monitor the performance of the filter and the quality of the oil.
