Fuel Borne Technology

To ensure the highest degree of product quality, EnviroFuels manufactures its patented products at ISO 9001-certified facilities. U.S. Patents: 5084263, 5310419, 5540788; Patents Pending.

EnviroFuels DFC (Diesel Fuel Catalyzer)
EnviroFuels DFC is an application-engineered, fuel borne technology that utilizes proprietary technology to produce EPA verified results. When EnviroFuels DFC is introduced into fuel, it improves the combustion process and reduces friction, increasing fuel economy while reducing emissions and engine wear. Unlike additives such as cetane enhancers, alcohols, or metal-based catalysts that seek to alter the fuel, EnviroFuels DFC fuel-borne technology uses the fuel as a carrier into the combustion chamber.

This patented technology utilizes two processes to positively impact the engine; a catalytic reaction and a surface conversion. The catalytic reaction optimizes the heat release rate, which leads to increased power, reduced emissions, and increased fuel efficiency. The surface conversion forms inorganic polymer complexes that converts the surfaces of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. These complexes smooth and passivate the metal surface, improve reflectivity (emissivity), and reduce oxygen reactivity, resulting in a reduction of friction and a more complete combustion reaction.


Applications
EnviroFuels DFC is mixed with commercial No. 2 diesel fuel for off-road applications. EnviroFuels currently provides its fuel-borne technology to the dredging, marine, mining, oil and gas, and rail industries across various engine platforms including:
