Quadrise Fuels International plc, the supplier of MSAR® and bioMSAR™ emulsion technology and fuels, on Wednesday (1 September) published test results of its bioMSAR™ fuel while operating on a medium speed 4-stroke Wärtsilä diesel engine at the VTT facility in Finland.
The MSAR® and bioMSAR™ fuel products are low-cost, cleaner alternatives to heavy fuel oil and biofuels, claims the company.
The bioMSAR™ test utilised 5 tons of bioMSAR™ manufactured at the Quadrise Research Facility, formulated with the intention of achieving a 20% CO2 reduction and the results presented are in comparison to diesel at 75% load, which is a typical operating regime for a marine 4-stroke diesel (testing range of 50% to 90% load).
The bioMSAR™ test highlights are as follows:
