Fuel Emulsions : A New Dawn

With tighter emission norms being slowly enforced worldwide whether by IMO for shipping or the Supreme Court in India, for the field of Fuel Emulsions this may be its long-awaited ticket for gaining widespread adoption. One where Emulsified Fuel cease being an end product, but the process become a means to an end, that of delivering cleaner emissions without having to either switch fuels or retrofitting new equipment.

Do Fuel Emulsions Have a Future? understand what makes Fuel Emulsions so special and why they are still relevant in today’s world, one has to first understand what its all about, as going by patents filed worldwide, the first attempts in blending fuel and water go back to the 1930s. Thereafter like a Phoenix, the technology kept fading away and resurrecting itself every decade especially when petroleum prices hit the roof. Read more >

Energy shortage or Misplaced priorities: India's two-faced Oil Import/Export policies.

Indian oil companies justified the hike pointed at the cost of crude, as it reached $130USD per barrel. In reality however, the excuse was groundless, as not a single barrel of crude oil is imported for manufacturing Furnace Oil as it is an inevitable and unavoidable by-product generated in copious quantities. The perfect analogy for this situation would have been a juice seller who jacks up the prices of both the juices as well as the waste pulp, because of the high cost of fruits. Read more >

Industrial Fuel Solutions for the New Millennium.

The Chinese learned to make cast iron and steel almost 2000 years back and their early ironworks used copious amounts of charcoal causing the first systematic large scale deforestation in recorded history. The situation was repeated in 17th century England with the advent of the modern industrialization when the country’s forest cover was rampantly depleted, again for making charcoal for steel foundries. This came to an end with the invention of the coking process, where bituminous coal was devolatilized and sulfur levels reduced to make it suitable for use in Metallurgy. However, the damage done; England never recovered her forest cover. Read more >

Save Fuel Later !! First Reduce Oxide Losses.

It is also an easily provable fact, that combustion of Emulsified Fuel in the metal reheating process drastically reduces mills-scale and dross formation. In fact, following the instantly measurable reduction of NOx levels and spike in O2 levels in the flue gases, the next easiest quantifiable aspect directly attributable to usage of emulsified fuels is the reduction of metal scaling and dross.

Cleaning Up Coal.

Coal, which produces 41 % of the world’s and 68% of India’s electricity, is usually thought about only in terms of pollution, mafia, miners dying in explosions and in the recent years; scandals involving corrupt Indian politicians and their Crony-Capitalist friends. Read more >

Fuel Double Standards.

"I am not running Greenpeace here" curtly proclaimed a CEO of a large company to whom I was extolling the virtues and Eco-friendliness of our Emulsified Fuels. My two hour session where  my every point  was cross questioned, countered or simply ignored, all stemmed down to one thing;  by how much would our fuel be cheaper than their current stock.
