Fuel Additive

Eco-neev™ is a diesel fuel catalysts (based on a well-known combustion catalyst) which run on all types of diesel engines. Unlike other additives which cannot withstand the high temperatures of combustion chambers and hence act merely as surface cleaners for the parts up to the engine – Eco-neev, due to the fact that it is the only fuel additive which is a combustion catalyst and also uniquely, the only additive which can withstand the high temperatures of the combustion chamber, not only cleans the engines but act as catalysts thereby reducing consumption of diesel by 6 - 12% (in some cases up to 15% has been reported) and harmful carbon and particle emissions substantially reduces around 50% in India...due to higher impurity here than Europe where the reduction is ~15 to 18%.

Exhaustive testing in India, for several months, has been done by various large companies including Tata Steel. They were completely satisfied and have released long term commercial orders. These companies are not only cost conscious but also environment conscious and using eco-neev they are able .

In India Approx 6600 cr liter of diesel is burnt annually . One should remember that one liter of diesel emits approx 3.0 Kgs of CO2 emissions. Thus India emits approx 20,000 cr tones of carbon dioxide annually. While the Govt. and other companies are coming up with ‘green’ technology, there still remains a wide gap in the efforts and results as many of the industries use diesel to run their plants, machines and logistics. Burning up of diesel results in gases which are harmful to the atmosphere – like Carbon dioxide NOX,SOX , Particulate matter and smoke.

It would be thus a mammoth effort towards retardation of the global warming phenomena if such a variety of diesel itself is produced which wont emit these harmful gases on burning Nand ipl with the help of Nanotechnology, have produced an additive for diesel which will reduce the emission of harmful gases by as much as 20-30% percent and decreases the consumption of Diesel used by the diesel engines by as much as 5-15 percent and thus in turn helps in reducing the cost of fuel for bulk diesel users.

”Eco-Neev” fuel-efficiency enhancer uses cerium oxide as a catalyst. This metal is one of several used in catalytic converters to reduce the amount of air pollution in engine exhaust. Cerium usually plays a supporting role to platinum, which is a more active catalyst but also more expensive. Fashioning cerium oxide into nanoparticles just 5 to 25 nanometers in diameter has given Nand ipl two advantages: it has turned the cheaper metal into a highly active catalyst and produced it in a form that can be blended directly into the fuel

Because of the ingredients and the technology behind it, during energy production, the amount of unburnt fuel that is left is minimal if this product is added in the diesel before being used,” explains co-founder of the company Kumar Binit. Size matters, because a catalyst's activity is a function of its surface area, and the total surface area in a mass of particles rises exponentially as the mass of the individual particles decreases. As a result, only a small amount of the product is required; Eco-Neev is blended into diesel fuel at a ratio of just 10 parts per million.

We have brought this product technology into India with the hope that socially responsible companies will not only benefit in reducing the operational cost by using Eco-Neev but also reducing harmful emissions. We have adopted this as a corporate social responsibility.

Cerium Oxide is a catalyst which supplies oxygen to the combustion process and acts to clean carbon deposits from within the internal combustion engine.

This is formed as 10nm particles(with proprietary coating) which are added to diesel fuel at 5 parts per million.

How It Works:

  1. Catalytic modification of the combustion process(immediate)
  2. Carbon deposit removal from the combustion chamber(longer term)

Eco-Neev promotes longer and more complete combustion, delivering significant fuel economy improvement and reduced emissions of CO2 + other harmful pollutants.

ECO-Neev FAQs - Biodiesel, Fuel Additives, Save Fuel

What is Eco-Neev?

Eco-Neev is a patented diesel fuel additive that reduces fuel consumption and reduces harmful emissions.

What is the mixing ratio?

1 ltr. of Eco-Neev is added in 4000 ltrs of diesel.

What is Eco-Neev? More Technical

Eco-Neev contains nanoparticles of Cerium Oxide which is a well known fuel catalyst. Cerium Oxide is the active component in catalytic converters found in exhaust tail-pipes of vehicles. By making nanoparticles of Cerium Oxide, we are able to add directly to fuel so that we get efficiencies in fuel combustion.

How is Eco-Neev Used?

NAND ipl has optimized the Eco-Neev dosage to approximately 5 – 10 ppm (parts per million). This means that the dosage quantity is in the ratio of 1L of Eco-Neev to 4000L of Diesel. As Eco-Neev is a liquid formulation, it can be simply added (poured) to the fuel tank of an individual vehicle, fuel depot tank or fuel supply tanker. Eco-Neev disperses easily – there is no need to provide any additional mixing.

How does Eco-Neev Work?

It works in two ways. Firstly, by improving fuel combustion, it improves the fuel efficiency (i.e. more useful work is provided from combusting the same amount of fuel). Secondly, the nanoparticles penetrate the carbon deposits in the engine chamber and with the catalytic effect help to remove the carbon deposits. Cleaner engine leads to further fuel efficiencies.

Why should we use Eco-Neev?

For three reasons. It gives you fuel economy benefits – an average of 7% reduction in fuel consumption has been reported by our customers. In India, we have demonstrated saving of approximately 10% (in public transport sector). Secondly, it gives significant environmental benefits e.g. 3 tonne Carbon Dioxide saving per tonne of fuel saved, at least 25% reduction in smoke / particulate matter and at least 10% reduction in emissions of harmful gases. Thirdly, it helps to keep the engine and components clean of carbon deposits, enhancing engine life.

Benefits of 7% or so can be obtained just through style of driving, season, load, servicing of engine etc. Why should we use Eco-Neev?

Eco-Neev gives you a 7% benefit on top of any other improvements that you may carry out. For example – on same route, load, style of driving etc, if you had some buses with Eco-Neev and some without, the group with Eco-Neev will show you a 7% benefit versus the non-treated group.

There are lots of fuel additives on the market. How is Eco-Neev different from these additives?

As far as we know, Eco-Neev is the only fuel additive that is a fuel combustion catalyst and also that it is a nanoproduct. All other additives are either dispersants, detergents or lubricating agents – none of these additives are able to withstand the temperatures in the combustion chamber and hence are not effective in the combustion chamber.

How about diesel available such as ‘Speed’,’Xtra Mile’ etc.?

Oil companies add dispersants, detergents and lubricant additives for the automobile (cars) retail market. There would be an extra 7% benefit if Eco-Neev is added to even these fuels.

Can Eco-Neev cause damage to the Engine?

No. We have done extensive industry standard tests to prove that there is no damage to the engine or any of the other components. We have no reports of any damage from any of our customers.

Does use of Eco-Neev invalidate Engine Warranties?

No. Diesel with Eco-Neev has the same specification as that of the standard Diesel (i.e without Eco-Neev). This is sufficient to cover OEM Engine Warranties.

Do OEM Engine Manufacturers approve the use of Eco-Neev?

Generally, Engine Manufacturers do not officially approve or disapprove any additives. All the standard industry testing we have carried out and certification from our customers should satisfy any concerns regarding engine damage.

Can you provide the results of the standard industry testing?

Yes. We have a technical performance document that describes all the tests and their results.

Any endorsements / certification from existing customers?

Yes, we have certification and letters from several of our existing customers. We can give you a copy of these letters. These customers can be contacted by yourself to verify the benefits.

Why aren’t you approaching Oil Companies to adopt your product?

We are. However, our strategy is to first engage large end users of Diesel and then move onto the Oil companies.

If it is such a great product, why is it not being used more widely?

Eco-Neev has been commercialized recently (last 2 years or so). In this market / industry, everyone wants to do a trial to be convinced about the benefits of Eco-Neev. Trials are time consuming and costly – therefore adoption is slow. The pace of adoption is increasing rapidly as we build our customer base.

How are the trials done?

Generally, the trials are carried out with two groups of vehicles/equipment with one group being treated with Eco-Neev and the other without Eco-Neev (control group). However, we design trials in discussion with our customer – the details of the trial depend on the type of vehicle/equipment, the way they are used/operated and the review of their fuel consumption data.

We are a big user of diesel. Would you be able to supply us if we adopt the product?

Yes, we have plenty of current capacity. Also, we can expand easily if needed.
