Who We Are
Optimus Technologies is a clean energy technology company based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Optimus manufactures the Vector System, an advanced fuel system technology that enables diesel engines to operate on 100% biodiesel.
The Vector System is designed for medium and heavy-duty fleet applications where emissions reductions are challenging or impossible to achieve in a cost-effective manner through other means. The Vector System integrates into existing operations to facilitate a seamless transition to low-carbon fuels.
At Optimus Technologies, our goal is to help your fleet reduce operating costs, eliminate carbon emissions, and meet long-term sustainability targets in a cost-effective way.
In 2003, Colin Huwyler was a college freshman at the University of Buffalo experimenting with biofuels on his Volkswagen Jetta. These experiments ultimately led Colin to create a biofuel system for passenger vehicles, and over the years this drew interest from a number of private fleets who wanted to utilize the technology to reduce the emissions of their heavy-duty trucks.
In 2010, Colin founded Optimus to serve the needs of private and municipal fleets. After conducting extensive research on other alternative fuel products like natural gas, hydrogen, and electric, Optimus set out to develop a low-carbon solution that provides fleets the performance and reliability their applications demand while being practical, affordable, and easily implemented without the need for massive investments in new vehicles or infrastructure. That solution was The Vector System.
Optimus’ Vector System is designed to integrate into fleet applications where emissions reductions are challenging or impossible to achieve in a cost-effective manner through other means. The Vector System provides fleets a pathway for the seamless transition to low-carbon fuels for existing operations.
