Fuel Additives and the Environment

1. What’s IFT’s business model?
Another IFT additive, DiesoLiFTTM EM1, used with biodiesel blends, such as B20 is able to stabilize the fuel and recover the mileage lost due to the lower heat content of the 20% biodiesel present in the blend.
And DiesoLiFTTM 10, when added to stable biodiesel blends is able to recover lost mileage plus the other functional benefits, mentioned above. IFT technology can also help stabilize ethanol-gasoline blends.
In the Unites States there are a number of longstanding users in freight and the road markets, where Schnucks Markets stands out as a happy customer. Another satisfied customer is East Midlands Trains, which operates a light rail passenger transport service in the UK, using Disesel Multiple Units – DMU and is getting 4.4% fuel efficiency improvement in the totality of their fleet. In Europe, IFT technology is often formulated with other components and sold under the client`s label. In China, the Coca-Cola distributor Swire is happily using DiesoLiFTTM 10 in 4 provinces. In India, IFT`s distributor has managed to reach a number of commercial fleets and is getting repeat orders.
Our immediate focus is fuel efficiency improvement and reduction in emissions. But with continued use, the benefits of lower maintenance cost surface.
With respect to biodiesel stabilization and oxidation protection, sales have begun in Europe and there are prospects in Argentina and Brazil.
