Environmentally conscious solutions for the fuel market

SulNOx, the hydrocarbon fuel emulsification specialist, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Technology Licence Agreement with Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Speciality Chemicals).

“We are delighted to have joined forces with Nouryon and look forward to working together to provide more environmentally conscious solutions to the market,” commented Gary Bostock, CEO and co-founder of SulNOx

The agreement concerns technology developed by SulNOx that will be added to Nouryon’s portfolio as Berol® 6446 and Berol® 6430, which have been developed by SulNOx and are designed to emulsify hydrocarbon fuels to ensure more efficient combustion resulting in reduced harmful gases, particulate matter and other air pollutants. These unique chemical formulations have been tested and are shown to reduce maintenance costs on engines, extend the life of engine oil and lower the viscosity of heavy fuel oil (HFO).

Nouryon is a global specialty chemicals leader that provides essential chemistry to industries worldwide, including power generation and transportation. The Berol product range is well established with a pedigree stretching back many years. SulNOx technology will be added to this trusted range and will benefit from Nouryon’s huge worldwide manufacturing and distribution capabilities.

“Our main focus in the market is helping customers formulate fuels and lubricants that meet next-generation legislation and OEM requirements,” added AB Ghosh, managing director surface chemistry at Nouryon.

“By forming strategic partnerships and working collaboratively we’re able to deliver on this even faster.”

Central to the agreement is that SulNOx has been appointed as the exclusive agent to promote and solicit orders for the licensed products, Berol® 6446 and Berol® 6430 on behalf of Nouryon worldwide. This will be driven by an in-house team of experienced sales and marketing specialists who already report substantial interest in the power generation, shipping, transport and fuel delivery sectors.
