LONDON, 24 AUGUST 2015 – SulNOx Fuel Fusions Plc., (SulNOx) the leading global producer and supplier of fuel emulsion technology, and the University of Cambridge’s Department for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB) today signed a two-year research project to determine detailed scientific knowledge of SulNOxEco™ Fuels – the proven fuel emulsion that significantly reduces harmful emissions and fuel consumption.
The two-year partnership represents the next exciting landmark for SulNOx. Utilising unique fuel emulsification technologies, the company supports all users of hydrocarbon fuels (fossil and synthetic) in reducing pollution from exhaust emissions, with the company’s immediate focus on the international shipping, mining, rail and power generation sectors.
When combined with standard fuels and water, SulNOxEco™ Fuels technology works by lowering flame temperatures in combustion engines to significantly aid the fuel to burn more efficiently, thereby drastically cutting particulate matter by over 90% and nitrogen oxides (NOx) by over 60%, while achieving up to an 8% improvement in energy efficiency.
Stephen Bamford, Chairman, SulNOx Fuel Fusions Plc, commented:
“SulNOxEco™ Fuels qualities are well known, presenting quantifiable savings of fuel and fuel costs as well as significantly reducing harmful emissions, including carbon, Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM). In order to scientifically determine the technology behind our solutions, we are delighted to team up with CEB and their world-leading scientists. With their scientific acumen, we will be able to better quantify the processes behind SulNOxEco™ Fuels’ remarkable results, with the potential to develop the product’s impact even further.”
Professor Nigel Slater, Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, from CEB, added:
“While the practical results of SulNOxEco™ Fuels technologies are readily provable and well documented, there is a lack of fundamental scientific data to explain how the technology works to support results in the field. CEB aims to provide that detailed and fundamental scientific knowledge.
The project will study closely the factors that provide such improved efficiency and reduced emissions, resulting from the successful and stable emulsification of water with hydrocarbon fuels. By fully understanding the science, further improvements may be possible.
“The Company has already deployed its technology in various parts of the world and has provided many practical demonstrable results, so we are excited to see how much further we may be able to take this ground-breaking technology.”
About SulNOx Fuel Fusions Plc
SulNOx has developed the cheapest, safest and highest quality fuel emulsion on the world market today, with the ability to significantly reduce many of the negative environmental impacts caused by the use of hydrocarbons, for both combustion and burning.
SulNOx has achieved an industry breakthrough for an emulsion industry previously plagued by reliability problems. The Company¹s technology surpasses any other competitor in the market, in that it’s chemical and physical IP and technologies provides for the production of long term, stable emulsified fuel in a continuous process by simply adding to the fuel/water mix as little as 0.2% of the SulNOx emulsifier and passing through SulNOx¹s static mixers. SulNOx fuels are safe, inexpensive and significantly reduce exhaust emission pollutants while increasing efficiency, all at no net cost to the users’ bottom line.
SulNOx is the ultimate holding company for the SulNOx Group and is currently an unlisted Public Limited Company, registered in the UK with a current equity issue of over 80 million shares, held by over 100 individual and corporate shareholders. SulNOx was incorporated to own, administer and monetise significant IP and proprietary technology, including Royalty incomes. Through SulNOx’s various UK and international subsidiaries, it produces and supplies what it claims is the world¹s leading multi-hydrocarbon fuel/water emulsions. SulNOx is planning to list its equity on a suitable London Exchange in the near future
