Purify Fuel and Solvay Have Teamed Up to Develop Nano Based Fuel Additive Blends to Reduce Harmful Emissions in Existing Diesel-Powered Engines

and Solvay
said today that the two companies have developed a nano tech based fuel
additive blend designed to improve fuel efficiency, increase power and
reduce harmful emissions in existing diesel powered engines.

First marketed 18 years ago, Solvay EOLYS Fuel Additives, an essential
element in Purify Fuel’s fuel additive formulations (nanO2®)
designed to reduce greenhouse gases and regulate emissions while
improving fuel efficiency, have been used in more than 16 million new
engines with similar nanotech combustion catalysts. Through this effort,
Purify Fuel’s nanO2® Fuel Additive Blends leverage Solvay’s
nanotechnology expertise to create diesel fuel additive blends that
reduce harmful emissions while improving fuel efficiency. The nanO2®
Fuel Additive Blends can be introduced without any upfront costs to the
400 million diesel engines not already equipped with pollution control

“It is exciting to be part of this partnership, and to be working on a
technology that will make meaningful impacts to transform the rail,
marine, fracking, mining and power generation industries, leading to a
significant reduction in harmful emissions on a global scale,” said John
Carroll, CEO of Purify Fuel. “While we all know the world needs faster
conversion to renewable sources, there is still a great deal of
infrastructure that is operating on diesel that will take years to
convert. We have a proven solution that is available now, that reduces
costs, and improves air quality.”

Sebastien Meric, Executive Vice President of Solvay Special Chem,
further commented, “We are pleased to combine our 30 years of expertise
in technologies for exhaust emission control & fuel efficiency with
Purify Fuel Inc. to tackle both increasing emission and fuel consumption

This global technology which will be available in North America, Europe,
Africa and Asia, is a win-win for large operators. Advantages include:

  • Reducing harmful emissions by up to 35-55%
  • Improved fuel efficiency offsets the cost of the emissions-reducing
    fuel additive
  • Operator savings of 6-12% on net fuel costs

“If operators of existing engines implemented nanO2 to reduce
emissions by 30%, it would have the equivalent effect of removing 100
million diesel trucks off our roads — buying the world more time to
implement smart pollution control technologies,” added Carroll.

About Purify Fuel: Purify Fuel develops, manufactures and markets
combustion catalysts that are custom blended to optimize diesel fuel and
biodiesel blends for the fracking, marine, military, mining, power
generation, rail, and biodiesel refining markets. The combustion
catalyst increases energy harvested from each gram of fuel while
reducing PM emissions and soot created by incomplete combustion. Purify
Fuel works directly with large consumers of diesel and biodiesel fuel to
help them save money, increase power, and reduce emissions.
