NOx Emissions Affecting California Air Quality

Biofriendly Fuel Catalyst Shows Marked Reductions in Harmful Diesel Emissions

Covina, CA (PRWeb) January 30, 2007 -- Despite concerted efforts to reduce harmful emissions and improve air quality, California still holds the top three positions in the air pollution charts. While the Carl Moyer Program, begun in 1999, has made significant near term reductions in diesel NOx emissions by providing funds to diesel engine owners who clean up their engines above and beyond what is required by law, more needs to be done. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists website the more than 1.2 million diesel engines in operation in California powering cars, trucks, buses, off-road construction and agriculture equipment, trains, and ships, are still pumping out more than 1,462 tons per day (tpd) of NOx and 66 tpd of PM in California.

Each of these engines is responsible for producing tons of smog-forming nitrogen oxides (NOx) and toxic soot (particulate matter or PM) over their lifetime. In fact, while heavy-duty engines account for only 5% of California's vehicles, they produce approximately 40% of the state's NOx emissions, says the California Air Resources Board. (CARB) The health risks from diesel exhaust are severe and estimates that 70% of the airborne cancer risk in the state is attributable to diesel PM, prompting them to identify diesel exhaust as a toxic air contaminant.

One solution to these harmful emissions being used effectively across the border in Mexico is Green Plus®, a liquid fuel catalyst. Green Plus has been through the rigorous American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) tests, conducted with diesel fuel by an internationally recognized independent research and testing laboratory in the U.S. These tests and others concluded that Green Plus causes no harm to engines or engine components and it produces improved power output and a more linear burn, thus reducing emissions.

"With so much attention being placed on the health risks associated with NOx emissions the consistent test results across a wide range of vehicles, fuels, ships and other combustion devices are most encouraging," said Bill Carroll, Executive Vice-President and Senior Technical Officer of Biofriendly Corporation. "These tests continue to confirm the efficacy of our liquid fuel catalyst in reducing the harmful NOx emissions that negatively affect our air quality."
