The A-55 Technology allows for the emulsification of petroleum products to produce A-55 Clean Fuels, which are water- or oil-phased emulsified fuels that significantly reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and other emissions.
The A-55 Technology allows for the emulsification of petroleum products to produce A-55 Clean Fuels, which are water- or oil-phased emulsified fuels that significantly reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and other emissions. The A-55 Technology consists of the following:
A-55 Additive is a proprietary formulation that chemically binds water and petroleum products together in stable emulsions. It combines 20-30% water with heavy fuel oils for use in boilers and large diesel engines, and water with lighter oils such as diesel fuel for use in combustion turbines and smaller diesel engines. The A-55 Additive is composed of naturally occurring surfactants that are benign to the environment.
A-55 Blending Units
A-55 Blending Units combine water, petroleum and the A-55 Additive through a series of pumps, shear units and mixers to create A-55 Clean Fuels. They can be located on-site at a plant or off-site at a refinery or fuel terminal to produce up to 500 barrels of finished fuel per hour.
A-55 Clean Fuels
A-55 Clean Fuels reduce NOx emissions in boilers by 25-70% while significantly lowering particulate emissions and visible soot and smoke. They reduce NOx emissions in combustion turbines by more than 50% and by 20-50% in diesel engines, while also lowering particulate emissions.
The ability of the A-55 Technology to emulsify less expensive heavier oils and the ability of the REACH Technology to facilitate combustion of those oils can create cost advantages for users of A-55 Clean Fuels.
