LEHR, Inc. Propane Outboard Motors


Region of Impact: North America



Problem: Small gasoline engines cause excessive pollution, yet electric/battery solutions do not provide the performance required to be a universally viable alternative.

Solution: Patented gaseous fueled engines that significantly reduce/eliminate pollution while improving performance and reducing cost of ownership.

Impact:  To date, about 100,000 lawn and garden engines have been sold that eliminate evaporative emissions while reducing VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions. 1,000s of marine outboard engines sold eliminate fuel spills into water while reducing methyl-mercury-causing particulate emissions by up to 96%.
