The article reports that Eaton Corp. will debut its hybrid regenerative braking system on new green refuse trucks in 2007 with the help of a grant from Texas. The New Technology Research and Development (NTRD) grant will move Eaton's Hydraulic Launch Assist (HLA) hybrid regenerative braking system toward commercialization. Under the grant, Texas refuse companies that buy a new truck chassis and refuse body are able to hybridize the vehicle at no cost, thus providing end users the opportunity to use the HLA system.
