NBS is pleased to welcome Westport Innovations to its Leadership Council in 2013.

Westport Innovations Inc. is a global leader in alternative fuel technologies that allow engines to operate on clean-burning fuels. These fuels include hydrogen, compressed and liquefied natural gas, and biofuels such as landfill gas.

The company’s alternative-fuel solutions address global problems associated with transportation, such as oil supply and energy security, rising air pollution in the world’s cities, increasing greenhouse gas emissions linked to global climate change. Their core technologies include fuel injectors, compressors, engine fuel systems and cryogenic tanks and pumps. Worldwide, Westport and its affiliates have filed more than 700 patent applications, relating to more than 180 inventions.
