Our fuel specs
The Production process
Our production process has one very unique feature: carbon removal at the heart of it. Using our pyrolysis reactor, we are able to utilize a wide variety of biomass residues to produce our biofuel, while at the same time producing biochar – a soil amendment made out of carbon trapped from the atmosphere.
The Production location
Using biomass as the main source for our fuel also comes with a few inherent challenges, namely: can we consistently supply the biomass to the production site? Yes. Our machines were created to be portable and deployable anywhere where they are needed, so instead of 1 central plant, we can have many (with at least 4 machines running in parallel at each plant) – in places where it makes the most sense.
The scalability of production
The benefit of having a containerized solution is not only the ease of portability but also the ease of scalability. If we were to double our production in a particular location, we can simply bring twice as many machines thereby having twice the output. And obviously, it also works the other way around.
Where can you use our fuel?
For Marine Use
Available to be used as a dual-purpose additive for methanol, achieving both vastly improved ignition properties and a dramatic reduction in overall blend greenhouse gas (GHG) emission. At 23%, this additive will allow for the operation of methanol in slow and medium-speed 4-stroke engines with few or no modifications needed. The fuel will soon be certified under the ISCC EU standard.
MASH fuel blended with methanol on a Blend of B23 and B58 has been operated on a regular diesel engine. The high-quality pyrolysis fuel acts as a combustion enhancement and has shown that it can make regular diesel engines operate when mixed with methanol, without any upgrade requirements. When using the MASH additive, the fuel blend will be improved in terms of Autoignition temperature, Cetane Enhancement, Lubricity, Calorific value, Maximum Rate of Heat Release etc, are points on which MASH fuel acts as an enhancement.
With this groundbreaking approach shipowners interested in using methanol can completely avoid the CAPEX expenditure of diesel to methanol engine modifications. MASH fuel can be blended in Methanol and directly operated in diesel engines.
For BOILER USE
MASH fuel has been operated in burners, marine boilers and industrial furnaces. The fuel has demonstrated reliable consistent operation. MASH fuel is mostly compliant with various fuel oil specs including ISO8217: 2005, BS 2869:2010, ASTM d396- 18a, IS-MV2, and ASTM d975 10 (Grand 4D).
