Beijing developed advanced nano-fuel technology reducing tail gas by half
font size    

The only nano-fuel technology in the world has been successfully developed in Beijing.

During a press conference on ESP nano-fuel technology held on April 26 experts said this technological device, installed in an automobile, can process common fuel completely into nano-fuel, thereby reducing the tail gas of the automobile by more than 50 percent and saving fuel consumption by more than 20 percent. This is a major technological breakthrough in the fuel industry circles and is of great importance to relieving environmental pollution and energy crisis.

Spending 15 years on it, ESP nano-fuel technology was developed by Beijing Yuantong Corporation Ltd. It has undergone repeated tests in the Institute of Porous Flow & Fluid Mechanics of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Neutron Laboratory at the Department of Nuclear Physics of China Institute of Atomic Energy. And it has been through the test of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology too (currently the world��s authority in nano-scientific research and standards establishment). It has demonstrated that the fuel processed by ESP device has completely become nano-fuel, tending to full combustion and drastically increasing the energy utility.

As learnt the ESP nano-fuel technology has been granted patent rights in China and more than 20 other countries. It has now been approved and initiated by Beijing Science and Technology Committee as a new project and launched as pilot application on hundreds of Beijing taxicabs. Once installed with this device an automobile can purify 50 to 90 percent of its tail gas, save 20 to 30 percent of fuel, enhance power by 10 to 30 percent, reduce engine noise and clean the firebox thereby prolonging the life-span of the engine. The device is being sold at a price of 580 yuan and can be bought and installed at nearly 20 auto-repair workshops.
