ALGAE-X Markets Fuel Treatment Systems

Tuesday, February 20, 2001
Algae-X International has acquired the exclusive North and South American representation for the patented product line of Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) Treatment equipment and Water In Diesel Emulsion (WIDE) technology. This CD92 product line is manufactured by SIT/Nordika GmbH in Germany. The SIT Homogenization and Emulsification equipment is based on technology for the treatment of heavy fuel oil, waste oil, & diesel fuel. It is designed to eliminates sludge and waste oil disposal, thus dramatically lowering the total fuel oil budget.

Processing Heavy Fuel Oil of 180 to 1, 000 cSt or more with the CD92 delivers fuel droplets smaller than 3 micron. This tremendously improves filterability and combustion efficiency. Ultimately the size of the fuel droplet determines combustion efficiency. The results are Invisible Exhaust, significantly lower emissions of SOOT, VOC'S, NOx, in compliance with IMO and EPA standards. This technology lowers operating cost by extending equipment life, reducing fuel consumption, maintenance and downtime. The "WIDE" System (Water in Diesel Emulsion) produces alternative fuel consisting of 85% diesel and 15% water. It provides the industry with the cleanest burning fuel that meets all EPA and IMO standards for CLEAN AIR at a lower price than any other currently available technology. The WIDE System enables the engine to more effectively burn the fuel rather than relying on an after burner or catalytic converter to do the job the engine should have done in the first place. Target markets are the cruise lines, major shipping companies, power plants, railroads, boilers and large volume fuel users. More than 700 Certified Systems have been installed on over 250 large ocean going vessels with a combined experience of over 10 million hours of operations.
