B3C Fuel Solutions, LLC, a manufacturer of environmentally friendly products and solutions for ethanol and bio-fuel related problems, is proud to announce receipt of two patents for its new FUEL LIFE technology. B3C was awarded patents for fuel preservation technology (Patent no. 9,149,788) and fuel drying technology (Patent no. 8,828,104).
The FUEL LIFE fuel preservation technology is a proprietary nanopore reactive molecular sieve that removes (neutralizes) the compounds in fuel that cause fuel decay. Once removed, fuel’s ability to decay is drastically diminished, even when exposed to heat and sunlight. The FUEL LIFE fuel drying technology removes moisture from ethanol blended fuel in a fuel tank. It removes bound, emulsified, and free water, eliminating corrosion and phase separation (when the water reaches a saturation point and falls out of the fuel to the bottom of the tank where the pick-up tubes are located). It is the ONLY scientific process that removes water bound to ethanol. In fact, all fuel containing ethanol (for example standard fuel pump gas which contains up to 10% ethanol) ALREADY HAS WATER in it because all ethanol contains up to 1% WATER. Fuel decay and water (which FUEL LIFE stops) are the top contributors to contamination and operating issues in engines. FUEL LIFE is non-toxic, non-hazardous and non-liquid and does not release anything into the fuel. The technology is third-party ASTM D525 (oxidation stability) and ASTM E 1064 (water presence) tested and simple to use.
"This new technology has the potential to change the fuel additive industry as we know it today by stopping fuel related engine problems before they start," said Brian Boezi, CEO, B3C Fuel Solutions. “Millions of engines, for example boats, motorcycles, ATVs, and outdoor power equipment, either do not run, or run poorly due to bad fuel, both gas and diesel. Additionally, considering the environmental aspects of fuel disposal, when fuel goes bad, it is unusable and has to be disposed of properly, but proper disposal does not always occur. These problems are preventable with FUEL LIFE,” said Boezi.
FUEL LIFE offers an incredible opportunity for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to build FUEL LIFE into new equipment or sealed gas cans (low permeation fuel tanks). At the point of manufacture, FUEL LIFE will stop potential issues with ethanol-blended fuels (fuel decay, gums, varnish, corrosion) resulting in completely stabilized and water free fuel. FUEL LIFE will clean slightly marginal fuel by neutralizing the negative chemical reaction that may have already started.
“Benefits include potential reductions in fuel related warranty issues and costs, increased customer satisfaction, and positive environmental impact. FUEL LIFE is a highly innovative and creative long-term solution that OEMs can leverage to drive competitive brand differentiation, increased awareness, and ongoing customer satisfaction”, said Boezi.
