FilAm cites Filipino in­ven­tor

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TECHNEWS! -

MANILA -- A vis­it­ing FilipinoAmer­i­can has cited a Filipino in­ven­tor for de­vel­op­ing a de­vice that greatly helps re­duce pol­lu­tion emit­ted not only from ve­hi­cles but also from gen­er­a­tors and ships.

Jun Ped­ery, a re­tired lo­gis­tics of­fi­cer of Lock­heed Martin Corporation based in Bethesda, Mary­land, lauded Ge­orge de Guz­man, the en­ter­pris­ing Filipino in­ven­tor who in­vented an anti-pol­lu­tion gad­get called “Power-Up”fuel com­bus­tor.

Ped­ery heard about de Guz­man’s in­ven­tion over ra­dio sta­tion DZBB pro­gram host, Rene Sta. Cruz whom he called by phone to ar­range for a meet­ing with the in­ven­tor.

Sta. Cruz, an ad­vo­cate of Filipino in­ven­tors, called up de Guz­man telling the lat­ter that Ped­ery would like to meet him (de Guz­man) .

As a re­sult, de Guz­man and Ped­ery met twice, first at Al­ham­bra Grill in Que­zon City which was fol­lowed by an­other meet­ing at Merville sub­di­vi­sion in Parañaque City last Sun­day.

Dur­ing their meet­ing, Ped­ery told the Filipino in­ven­tor that he was grat­i­fied to wit­ness first-hand how “Power-Up” works in con­tain­ing pol­lu­tion and at the same time in­ject­ing more power to the en­gine.

“I was so im­pressed dur­ing the ac­tual demon­stra­tion of the de­vice that there was prac­ti­cally no pol­lu­tion was emit­ted from the ve­hi­cle that was newly in­stalled with Power-Up,” Ped­ery said in an in­ter­view with this writer.

De Guz­man told Ped­ery that “Power-Up” also saves fuel up to 50 per­cent and change oil is done only af­ter 30,000 kilo­me­ters (13.6 mi l es) .”

On his part, Ped­ery said: “When I go back to the U.S. I will tell my friends about ‘Power-Up’and pos­si­bly in­tro­duce the de­vice to some prospec­tive in­vestors to look into the pos­si­bil­ity of bring­ing the in­ven­tion to Amer­ica.”

“I’m proud of this Filipino in­ven­tion”, Ped­ery said, adding “I hope the Philip­pine gov­ern­ment will help in prop­a­gat­ing Filipino in­ven­tions be­cause there are lots of them that will boost Philip­pine econ­omy.”

In an in­ter­view, De Guz­man said he had pro­duced and sold so far over 9,000 “Power-Up” de­vices, and more have their ve­hi­cles in­stalled.

He said that one of his cus­tomers is for­mer Ilo­cos Sur Gov. Chavit Sing­son for his lux­ury yacht.

De Guz­man hopes that the gov­ern­ment sup­ports not only his in­ven­tion but all other Filipino in­ven­tors for that mat­ter.
