  7. 7. IFT s Technology•  IFT additive formulations are based on surfactant physical-chemistry, acomplex mixture of detergent substances that utilize in part naturally occurring,renewable fractions that meet OECD bio-degradability criteria.• Safe to handle; no harm to engine components and parts.• Easy to use - splash blending (typical treat ratio: 1 to 600).• Use of technology has no effect on fuel composition make up or standardspecification.• Multifunctional – fuel economy; reduced emissions; lubricity; detergency; waterco-solvency, fuel stability.• IFT is protected by patents and patent applications pertaining to numerousapplications of its technology. 7
  8. 8. How DiesoLiFTTM 10 Works•  When splash blended into a base fuel, DiesoLiFTTM 10 is fully and uniformly incorporated into the base fuel. The mixture forms into, and remains a stable solution.•  Unique surfactant molecules reduce fuel surface tension allowing for a finer spray pattern of the fuel / air mixture in the combustion chamber.•  Atomization facilitates a more complete and efficient combustion. Less fuel is needed for the same power output, reducing fuel consumption.•  More complete combustion => reduced emissions –  More carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and particulates are burnt –  Less fuel burnt per unit of work => less greenhouse gas emissions (CO2 and NOx) 8
  9. 9. Additional Benefits•  Additive formulations adsorb to the internal surfaces of the fuel system –  Form a monolayer of protection against corrosion –  Optimize fuel flow through the fuel system•  Inherent chemical properties: –  Improve fuel lubricity –  Act as a detergent in the fuel system –  Co-solve free water in the fuel system•  Reduced maintenance costs 9

  12. 12. Lab Test and Field Demonstrations•  DiesoLiFTTM 10 has been tested at independent test laboratories and has consistently demonstrated the ability to increase fuel economy, in the range of 3% to 6%: –  U.S.: Southwest Research Institute and Motive Power; –  U.K.: mi Technology (Interfleet) and Prodrive; –  Canada: the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada; –  South Africa: Gerotek Test Facilities; and –  China: Tsinghua University.•  Field demonstrations utilizing DiesoLiFTTM 10 have validated lab test results: –  Rail operators –  Truck and bus fleet operators –  Power generation operator 12
  13. 13. Passenger Rail: The Interfleet Test•  Between 2006 and 2010, Interfleet Technology coordinated a series of five trials testing the effect of using DiesoLiFTTM 10 on light rail engines (diesel multiple units, or DMUs). Three different engine types were used ensuring a good representation of the current passenger fleet in the U.K.•  In each of the first four test bed trials a positive effect in either increased power or reduced fuel consumption (or both) was achieved.•  In two of the test bed trials, reductions in fuel consumption of 6.9% and 5.9% were achieved.•  In three trials, a power increase ranging from 2% to 3.5% was achieved.•  In addition, particulate matter emissions were significantly reduced in each of the four test bed trials. 13
  14. 14. Interfleet Test•  The fifth trial consisted of a large in-service demonstration between August 2009 and January 2010: Significant improvement in fuel consumption rates of 4.4% after the additive was included into fuel mix despite unfavorable weather conditions, and despite the fact that only 72% of the fuel was additized. (Interfleet April 2010) The DiesoLiFTTM 10 fuel additive technology has been rigorously and independently scrutinized in both industry standard test bed procedures and within a major in-service field trial. The additive is simple to apply, has demonstrated consistent fuel economy improvements and hence reduced fuel costs. (Interfleet April 2010) 14
  15. 15. Bio-Diesel Application•  Use of DiesoLiFTTM 10 enables bio-diesel blends (up to B-20) to enter the market on par with regular diesel.•  Rail engine test at mi Technology in the U.K. demonstrated that a B-20 (rapeseed) additized with DiesoLiFTTM 10 was able able to recoup the approximate 4% loss in fuel economy when compared to regular diesel.•  Another proprietary IFT additive formulation, DiesoLiFTTM BD-series, provides superior oxidation stability, deposit formation control and long-term storage stability to bio-diesel of varying type (B-5, B-10…..B-100) and all underlying sources (soybean, jatropha, rapeseed, recycled fried oil, etc.). 15
  16. 16. Marketing and Sales 16
  17. 17. Marketing and Sales•  Commercial Goal: bulk sale of DiesoLiFTTM 10 to major end-users of diesel fuel: rail operators; road transport fleets; and stationary power generation•  Strategy: -  Partner with prominent fuel additive distribution companies with existing customers and distribution channels -  Direct sales to major oil companies -  Direct sales to end-users•  IFT Distribution Partners: -  Multisol: France; Spain; Portugal; and Belgium -  Nordmann Rassmann: Germany; Austria; Central and Eastern Europe; Scandinavia; and Switzerland -  Caldic: U.K. -  Tide Water Oil Company: India -  Next Group: Brazil 17
  18. 18. Summary of Key Commercial Developments•  East Midlands Trains (U.K.) – successful field demonstration led to purchase of DiesoLiFT™10 for use in entire 89 unit light rail operation.•  Other ATOC (U.K.) Operators – continued positive results from East Midlands should lead to purchases of DiesoLiFT™10.•  European Rail Operators – ongoing commercial discussions.•  U.S. Road Transport – distribution fleets have been successfully using DiesoLiFT™10 since 2002•  India – Distributor Tide Water recently purchased its third container of DiesoLiFT™ 10. Two large oil companies concluding extensive evaluations.•  Brazil – Two large Brazilian private companies evaluating DiesoLiFT™10.•  China – Swire Beverages, a major Coca-Cola franchisee, now purchasing and evaluating DiesoLiFT™10 in 8 distribution depots. 18
  19. 19. Competition DiesoLiFTTM 10•  Hundreds of fuel additive companies claim fuel economy improvement•  Top line additive companies offer separately specific benefits: e.g. detergency, lubricity, cetane no. improvement, anti-gel•  The cumulative effect of these benefits may improve fuel economy•  However, IFT s DiesoLiFTTM 10 is the only combustion enhancing technology that has extensively/consistently demonstrated fuel efficiency improvement 19
