Daylight Transport

Daylight Transport is a privately owned expedited LTL service provider headquartered in Long Beach, CA. The company started in 1977 and still owned by our Founder, Richard Breen. In California, we own and operate in large facilities located in Fontana, Los Angeles, Hayward and Visalia.In 2017, we built our most recent facility to be a Leed Certified facility which is the largest Leed Certified Trucking facility in the western part of the United States. This facility is equipped with a 600 kw solar system, 8 personal electric car chargers, 100 electric forklifts and 3 electric yard trucks. We are interested in becoming a zero (near zero) emissions trucking company. We have available land at each of our facilities and 10 available acres in Fontana. I am interested in potentially using this land and our solar investment as a means to produce, store and distribute Hydrogen fuel where we could be a user and a public distributor. Additionally, Daylight Transport is interested in becoming more of an early adopter of Heavy Duty Hydrogen Fuel Cell and Electric Battery technology within our CA wide operation and eventually in the many other cities we operate throughout the country.

Eco Energy International

The lack of a hydrogen infrastructure has impeded the implementation of fuel cell technology in many areas worldwide. At the same time, the world is awash with waste materials. For example, Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management and Agricultural Solid Waste (ASW) management are two of the world’s biggest challenges. Eco Energy International has developed a new technology that economically converts over 80% of the MSW going to landfills into clean, renewable and profitable energy (hydrogen and syngas), significantly reducing the need for landfills. Since all of the organic or biogenic materials are converted, we eliminate the production of carbon dioxide and methane gases typically associated with landfills.

Millenium Reign Energy

Millennium Reign Energy LCC (MRE) is an alternative fuel production company located in Dayton, Ohio. In 1988 Mr. Chris McWhinney CEO, envisioned a better way to provide an alternative fuel source for the average consumer. Since 2003 he and his team have refined that dream into a self-contained, fully automatic hydrogen generating station that will one day become a standard in every home. The AutoARK® uses electricity from any source to separate water (H2O) into hydrogen and oxygen. Although this technology has been around for many years, MRE increased the efficiency levels for alkaline type electrolyzes and reduced the cost significantly, to make it a viable solution to your hydrogen needs. See our post to the right of our latest installations.
