HAYWARD, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - ATDynamics, the leading global supplier of semi-trailer rear-drag aerodynamics technology, today announced that it has been recognized by AlwaysOn as one of the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 winners. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing and entrenched players in green technology. ATDynamics was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
ATDynamics and the GoingGreen Silicon Valley Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's seventh annual GoingGreen Silicon Valley, which takes place November 27-28 at the Golden Gate Club in San Francisco.
GoingGreen Silicon Valley is a two-day executive event where green tech CEOs meet to discuss the largest industries on earth. Green technology innovators are transforming trillion dollar industries, and the solutions they are delivering not only promise to clean up pollution and restore ecosystems, but bring abundance and prosperity to everyone on the planet.
"This year's GoingGreen Global 200 displays a maturity in the green technology industry that makes it very attractive to both investors and innovators. Greentech research is maturing rapidly, and as it couples with technology innovators and investors, companies are emerging that have the ability to change the way we live our lives for the better and bring huge returns to their founders and funders," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's GoingGreen Global 200 winners are pushing the bounds of how technology can bring about change in the war on our planet's waning resources. The strength of these companies lies in their ability to nurture innovative ideas and see them through to successful, sustainable, and profitable businesses."
The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and green technology industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.
ATDynamics' flagship TrailerTail® product line is comprised of lightweight, thermoplastic composite fairings installed at the back of tractor-trailers to streamline airflow behind the trailer, reducing aerodynamic drag and fuel consumption by 6.6 percent at 65 mph. Retrofitting the 4 million high mileage semi-trailers currently in operation worldwide will reduce global oil demand by $80 billion over the next decade. Using a patented origami folding design, TrailerTails collapse automatically out of the way when a driver opens the rear doors of a semi-trailer to access cargo. The devices can be installed by two people in less than one hour and every TrailerTail installed offsets the equivalent fuel consumption of removing one passenger vehicle from the road. The devices enhance vehicle safety by improving vehicle stability in high winds and reducing spray in wet weather.

"By accepting this award, we recognize our customers who strive to operate the most fuel efficient fleets on the planet and our employees who have worked tirelessly to transform laboratory concepts to real world, high-durability solutions to the planet's over-dependence on fossil fuels."
