FTSGI’s Business: FTSGI is a technology solutions provider, primarily focusing on applying technologies related to fuel and energy saving to all heavy users of fuel, which primarily accomplish one or all of the following.
1. Reduces oil consumption
2. Increases fuel savings
3. Reduces Nox, Sox, and Co2 emissions
4. Reduces particulate emissions
5. Reduces required maintenance frequency
6. Allows fast and easy installation
7. Can be used with all liquid fuels
8. Has small footprint
Emissions and pollution control standards are growing more restrictive all around the world, and there is no reversing its progress. Our technologies reduces harmful emissions across the board, including NOx, Sox, CO and solid particulates by startling amounts, without expensive equipment upgrades or cost prohibitive fuel conversions.
Fuel Technology Solution’s technology eliminates more than 95% of solids and particulate matter from combustion exhaust and reduces sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and monoxide emissions by 30-60%.
Fuel Upgrading’s nano-fibrous desulfurization(supplied by one of our group member) technology removes sulfur from fuel in a recyclable process. This technology has been demonstrated to achieve<10 PPM sulfur from >400 PPM sulfur diesel. Used in combination with other of our technologies extremely low emissions operation is achievable.
The International Maritime Organization will require by 2015 that all ships in designated waters surrounding much of Europe use fuel containing less than 0.1%. Extracting sulfur from fuel is an expensive process, and few refineries are able to produce very low sulfur fuel, which puts upward pressure on prices. Industry officials say the change could increase bunker fuel prices by 87%, and cause up to half of present maritime shipping to be shifted to land transportation, increasing congestion, pollution and fuel prices.
FTSGI can achieve the 2015 IMO regulation now, without requiring a large CAPEX to shipping fleet owners. This can be achieved at less cost than that of converting to very low-sulfur fuel, installing catalytic exhaust cleaners or converting ships to alternative fuels such as LNG.
The World Health Organization has declared diesel fuel emissions to be a cause of cancer due to its high level of particulate emissions and noxious substances.
Never before have we faced such a challenging outlook for the energy market.Rising fuel costs and increasingly stringent environmental regulations as well as a growing preference for ‘green’ solutions have prompted facility managers and business owners in many major markets to seek better methods of controlling their costs. Recent technological advances and market dynamics, including the evolution of FTSGI, are changing the existing fuel paradigm.
Diesel and heavy fuel oils have been in use for over 100 years. They provide 80% of the energy used in land and maritime transportation as well as being important in power generation, industry and mining. They provide energy for engines, gas and steam turbines, boilers, boats, cargo ships, cruise liners, freight vessels, trains, trucks, cars, tractors, bulldozers and cranes as well as heating homes, hospitals and universities, so wherever these fuels are used in abundance, is a market for us.
Diesel power generation is a global market opportunity, but countries with weak power transmission infrastructures represent the best near-term opportunity. The largest markets in this category include Sub-Saharan African countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, the Republic of South Africa and Kenya as well as Latin America, Southeast Asia, and the Indian subcontinent.
Backyard power production, as it is called in these countries, often forms the power backbone without which many areas would go brown or black. In many of these countries, diesel fuel has been heavily subsidized, but these subsidies are starting to disappear, which puts considerable financial strain on the governments and residents.
These and other markets will welcome a technology that significantly reduces their fuel cost. Moreover, as their fuel often is of poor quality and their generators are older, FTSGI processed fuel is desirable because it does not put these systems under additional strain.
