Energenics Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Energenics Holdings Pte Ltd, announced today that it's Enercat fuel borne catalyst has demonstrated fuel efficiency savings of 8-10% on a mixed fleet of diesel vehicles in Italy.
Energenics Announce Enercat Fuel Additive Trial Success
Singapore | Posted on March 24th, 2009
The product was tested in a variety of vehicles from light duty, through medium and heavy duty trucks, utilising a proprietary formulation that also combines the multiple particle effects of Energenics' present cerium oxide particles, which are supplied to Energenics under an exclusive supply agreement with Antaria Limited of Perth Australia, with the properties of Cerion Energy's new cerium oxide particles.
Ronen Hazarika, Energenics CEO said, "I am very happy that we have been able to achieve this spectacular result from the usage of Enercat. The formulation of Cerium Oxide fuel borne catalyst was tuned using our strategic partner's proprietary Lattice Engineering process to obtain the catalytic performance required for the diesel supplied and the end user application. The formulation is already being sold at retail fuel distribution points in Italy and further expansion into this sector is well advanced."
"This result bodes well for the pipeline of new customers in the UK and Europe that have expressed interest in using the 3rd generation nanocatalyst technology. This trial result is also in line with the benefits being demonstrated in trials conducted by our strategic partner Cerion Energy & Cerion Gulf in the Southeast United States. We fully expect that those trials will also lead to an early adoption of the product in the not too distant future."
Energenics has committed extensively to the European market supported by a major advertising & marketing campaign executed through the trade press in Europe.
Stefano Livi, CEO of Creuros, said: "I am so pleased that the EnerCat 3rd generation nanocatalyst has worked well for our customers. Not only have they benefited from substantial fuel efficiency but also a 30% minimum improvement in black smoke emissions within a short period of using the product."
"This result has vindicated my decision to move away from Oxonica PLC's Envirox fuel additive technology, which had mixed results for us. In the trials that we conducted that did work, the Envirox product only yielded an average of 4% fuel efficiency and minor smoke emission reductions according to the customer data. The Enercat 3rd generation technology clearly is a major advancement in fuel additive technology and I'm delighted to be using it."
Energenics & Cerion Energy recently announced that they had pooled their R&D expertise to jointly develop a family of "Third-Generation" fuel-borne combustion catalysts which increase fuel efficiency while reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions and health-threatening chemicals such as NOx and Diesel Particulate Matter.
Energenics is a supplier of alternative energy solutions and technologies, providing customers access to switched or phased renewable fuels programs that deliver both energy use and gas emission reductions at zero or minimal capital cost. Energenics is incorporated in Singapore and is rapidly becoming a market leader in delivering turnkey biofuel & energy efficiency projects to fleet users using innovative technologies either developed in house or licensed in from technical partners. Mr. Hazarika is the original inventor of technology protected by patents relating to coated cerium oxide nanoparticles used as a fuel-borne catalyst owned by Neuftec Limited and now licensed to Energenics. In 2008, the UK High Court successfully upheld Neuftec's license rights in relation to a claim brought by Oxonica Energy Limited.
Creuros Srl an Italian company committed to reducing Italy's dependence on fossil fuels and promoting energy efficient technologies for buildings, transportation, power generation and industry. Creuros aim to enhance public energy efficiency and productivity; bring clean, renewable and affordable energy technologies to the marketplace.
Product verification & demonstration is conducted in partnership with the private sector, national and local government, national laboratories, and universities.
