Diesel Oil Emulsions are direct substitutes for diesel in all diesel applications including: compression ignition engines (high, medium and low speed diesel engines), combustion turbines, furnaces and boilers.
Depending on its application, the water content of emulsion diesel can vary between 5% to 15% by volume; however, the standard product contains about 10% water, less than 2% additive, with the balance comprising of diesel.
Emulsion diesel unique combustion characteristics result in significant environmental benefits over diesel.
Depending on the engine type, age and condition, service history, maintenance, duty cycles, driver behaviour and water content of the emulsion diesel compared to diesel, the common ranges of emulsion diesel reductions are:
NOx - between 10% and 40%
PM - between 10% and 60%
CO2 - between 2% to 4%
