B3C Fuel Solutions awarded two US patents for its FUEL LIFE technology

In South Carolina, B3C Fuel Solutions was awarded two patents for its FUEL LIFE technology, including patents for fuel preservation technology (Patent no. 9,149,788) and fuel drying technology (Patent no. 8,828,104). The FUEL LIFE fuel preservation technology is a proprietary nanopore reactive molecular sieve that removes (neutralizes) the compounds in fuel that cause fuel decay. Once removed, fuel’s ability to decay is drastically diminished, even when exposed to heat and sunlight. The FUEL LIFE fuel drying technology removes moisture from ethanol-blended fuel in a fuel tank. It removes bound, emulsified, and free water, eliminating corrosion and phase separation (when water reaches a saturation point, falling out of the fuel to the bottom of the tank where pick-up tubes draw fuel). It is the only scientific process that removes water bound to ethanol (all fuel containing ethanol, e.g. fuel pump gas with up to 10% ethanol, already has water in it because all ethanol contains up to 1% water). fuel decay and water are top contributors to contamination and operating issues in engines. FUEL LIFE is non-toxic, non-hazardous and non-liquid and does not release anything into fuel. The technology is third-party ASTM D525 (oxidation stability) and ASTM E 1064 (water presence) tested and simple to use.
