R/D contracts with the US Army involving the development of high performance, diesel type fuel injection equipment that is capable of running on jet fuel. Jet fuel (JP-8) has very poor lubricating properties, causing high wear of diesel fuel system components. DME” design and materials technology, wear has been reduced by up to 90%. August, 2013.
About Alternative Fuel Technologies, Inc.
Alternative Fuel Technologies, Inc. DME) and other low lubricity fuels, like JP-8 and propane, in both diesel and spark ignited (gasoline type) direct injection systems.
The company has developed practical, low-cost fuel injection equipment for DME fueled vehicles and currently provide O.E.M’s., government research organizations and universities with complete DME fuel systems for testing and research purposes. The company's ultimate goal is series production of DME and other alternative fuel injection systems for the automotive, agricultural and construction, marine, defense and locomotive markets.
DME is a new alternative fuel for diesel engines that eliminates smoke emissions and lowers NOx emissions without the use of expensive particulate filters and SCR catalysts. DME can be economically produced from abundant natural gas, biogas and renewable feed stocks. DME can be blended (up to 15%) with liquid propane and burned in modern, direct injection passenger car (gasoline type) engines. AFT plans to apply its DME technology to gasoline direct injection systems burning neat propane and/or a blend of propane and DME. DME fuel systems for a passenger car diesel, multiple off-highway diesels and marine diesel engines. We have also been asked to participate in a feasibility study of using DME in locomotive diesel engines...This includes the purchase of an additional R/D and prototype manufacturing facility and hiring more engineers...One possible product under review is the production of a robust, high pressure diesel common rail pump for racing applications.
