The technology uses a fuel emulsification process that adds water to heavy fuel oil to produce a emulsified fuel for ships. The company claimed that the tests conducted showed fuel savings on generators and main engines, and reductions in the ships’ carbon emissions.

The company added that the physical chemical properties of oil can be improved by means of the compact on-ship homogenizing devices. This approach eliminates the risk of overstocking the ship with the unstable fuel and damaging the power system, and allows the use of inexpensive grades of oil.

The fuel homogenization immediately prior to its utilization and using water-in-oil emulsions improve fuel efficiency and prevent the pollution of the environment with the harmful impurities. The water-in-oil emulsion is a superior fuel which burns differently in the engine, the tiny water droplets instantaneously turn into steam bubbles, the company said.

According to the company, the steam disperses fuel into fine particles in addition, the gaseous water molecules dissociate in hydrogen atoms and hydroxyl radicals. The hydrogen atoms react to oxygen, recovering the energy of the dissociation of water molecules. The steam instantly disperses fuel, which then is efficiently oxidized with oxygen in the air and burns completely, without forming any residual particulate.
