International Fuel Technology, Inc. (“IFT”) is a technology company that has developed a number of liquid fuel additive formulations that enhance the performance of liquid hydrocarbon fuels and blends with biofuels, such as biodiesel and ethanol.
To date, IFT’s commercialization efforts have focused on two proprietary lines of products:
The potential market for IFT products is virtually every gallon of diesel fuel and bio-diesel fuel consumed in the world today. The commercial goal of IFT is the bulk sale (by the container) of DiesoLiFT™ 10 and DiesoLiFT™ BD-Series to major end users of diesel fuel and bio-diesel fuel blends:
IFT Technology has been extensively tested and verified at a number of prominent independent test labs all over the world. For example, DiesoLiFT™ 10 has been tested at the following prominent independent test labs and consistently demonstrated the ability to increase fuel economy, on average, by 5%:
(IFT is not aware of any fuel additive technology in the market today that has achieved similar independent test results.)
In addition, numerous field demonstrations all over the world have validated independent lab test results. DiesoLiFT™ 10 has been tested in the field with road transport, rail and stationary power generation applications and consistently demonstrated the ability to improve fuel economy, on average, by 5%.
DiesoLiFT™ BD-Series has been tested at the following independent testing organizations and consistently demonstrated that it is the top performing fuel additive technology in the market today for addressing oxidation stability, long term storage stability and deposit control in bio-diesel fuel blends:
As part of the extensive independent lab testing, DiesoLiFT™ BD-Series has demonstrated its superior performance with all types of underlying bio-diesel source materials (e.g. soybean, rapeseed, African palm, sunflower, jatropha, animal fat, recycled fried oil, etc.) and with high percentage blends of bio-diesel up to B-100.
A combination of DiesoLiFT™ 10 and DieseoLiFT™ BD-Series will provide oxidation stability and deposit control for and recoup the lost power associated with bio-diesel fuel use.
DiesoLiFT™ 10 Saves Money. The net economic benefit of DiesoLiFT™ 10 is compelling to the end user: for a cost of approximately 4.0 cents to additize one gallon of fuel with DiesoLiFT™ 10, the end user realizes 15.0 cents of gross savings (or 11.0 cents of net savings) per gallon of diesel fuel consumed. This assumes a 5% improvement in fuel economy and a cost per gallon of diesel fuel of $3.00.
Both DiesoLiFT™ 10 and DiesoLiFT™ BD-Series are easy to use. Once the additive is splash blended with a base fuel, the mixture forms into and remains a stable solution.
The manufacture of IFT’s additive formulations is outsourced to Multisol (France) and Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (U.S.). These relationships allow IFT to consistently deliver quantities of quality additive formulations on a timely basis.
IFT is in the early stages of commercializing its technology. End users, biodiesel producers are increasingly purchasing and using DiesoLiFT™ 10 and DiesoLiFT™ BD-Series.
