|On May 14th 2015, EcoHybrid Fuel (EHF) successfully conducted its first sea trial on the Quickwater. Professor Richard Kimball explains how EHF can be used as a drop-in fuel for diesel engines.|
Are new emissions standards and increasing costs of diesel fuel a concern for your marine, rail or power generation company?
SeaChange Group has developed Eco-Hybrid Fuel, our patented glycerol-diesel emulsion technology. This is a drop-in fuel that will provide lower operational costs and improvements to emissions (SOx, NOx, PM), without requiring any engine modifications. Glycerol as a fuel additive has benefits both economic and environmental. Working closely with Maine Maritime Academy, and funded by grants from the Department of Energy, National Science Foundation and the Maine Technology Institute, SeaChange Group is focused on the development and
commercialization of low-cost diesel fuels with lower emissions for marine, rail, and industrial power applications. Currently, a pilot processor is under the final stages of construction, which will provide sufficient quantities of fuel for testing in work vessels in 2015. Sales to early adopters are planned for early 2016.
