SOMS Technologies LLC is commercializing the microGreen® Extended Performance Oil Filter, a patented, breakthrough innovation in engine oil filtration. It is the most advanced technological leap in the engine oil filter industry for over 30 years. The microGreen filter is a clean technology that significantly improves filtration efficiency, allowing vehicles to operate up to 24,000-30,000 miles (8x the standard change interval) without changing the engine oil. The microGreen oil filter is a simple replacement product that has the same specifications as a conventional oil filter. However, by extending the oil drain interval, the microGreen filter can reduce associated maintenance costs by 65% while decreasing environmental impacts from consumption of oil and generation of hazardous waste. The microGreen filter has been extensively tested in commercial and public fleets and is supported by shared research agreements with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. The filter is available for most passenger cars, light/medium duty trucks and some heavy duty engines and equipment. The microGreen filter is sold in the US and Canada through distributors, direct to fleet and to consumers through the www.microgreenfilter.com.
