An oil refinery in the UK has produced a new fuel that emits nearly a tonne less CO2 per unit of fuel.
The fuel additive butane fuel is being developed by British chemical company Balfour Beatty and is the first of its kind to use the additive.
Butane is the key ingredient in diesel fuel and is an essential component of most modern cars, trucks and planes.
Butane is a fossil fuel, so is used in the combustion of fossil fuels to generate electricity.
However, in the process of burning it, the butane that is emitted is more than double the amount of CO2 emitted in a year.
Balfour beatty and its partner Shell have already produced a version of the fuel that produces up to 20 times more CO2.
But this new fuel is made from a mix of butane and other elements, such as silicon carbide, carbon nanotubes and iron oxide.
The aim is to create a fuel that is 100 per cent carbon neutral.
But the technology is a long way from being commercialised, but Balfours latest product is not.
Its new fuel has to be purified, which is a process that can take months.
And Balfoured beatty’s latest product will be tested in the European Union.
“We are working closely with industry to ensure we meet all EU emissions standards and the requirements for certification by the European Commission,” said Chris Beal, the head of energy at Balfurgh-based Balforghini.
“Our research shows that butane can provide a very high level of low-emission fuel, and we are working to make this fuel commercially available.”
This technology has the potential to make it possible to produce cleaner, cleaner fuels than today’s fuel.
“Balfours new fuel uses butane to produce the carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere as the fuel reacts with oxygen in the air.
The process involves mixing the oil in a refinery with carbon dioxide and releasing the carbon, which in turn reacts with hydrogen.
The reaction creates a new butane compound, and this compound is the fuel’s main component.
It is a different fuel than what is currently used in diesel cars.”
If you look at the diesel fuel industry, there are a lot of different types of fuel that are produced.
There are carbon blends, there’s natural gas, and there’s synthetic fuels that are not made from the fossil fuel,” said Andrew White, from Balfors fuel supplier, Balfore.”
Butane and carbon dioxide are all very different and there are so many different types and sizes of fuel, that you have to mix them and have them in different ways to produce a single product.
“Belfour Beatity is a UK-based energy company that is also the UK’s largest supplier of diesel fuel to the EU.
Its latest product, Bafurgh, uses a mixture of silicon carbides, iron oxide and butane.
The blend has a specific gravity of 4.5, which means it will not float on the water.
But BalfOUR Beatty has already produced fuel that uses an even lower specific gravity, a 2.5.
