Alkane, Inc. Announces U.S. Patent Filing on High Energy Synthetic Fuel
Thursday, June 25, 2009
Lutherville, MD -- Alkane, Inc. "Alkane" (PinkSheets: ALKN) announced today that it has filed for a U.S. patent on its newly developed high energy synthetic fuel, Syn-Fuel. Syn-Fuel is the operative ingredient in the company's flagship product, diesel fuel additive Monster Diesel, which started shipping earlier this month.
According to the Energy Information Administration's International Energy Outlook 2008, the world "will require 50% more energy in 2030 than it did in 2005 ... almost all of which will be derived from synthetic and bio fuel sources." Alkane's proprietary Syn-Fuel will surely play an integral role in this transformation.
A quart of Syn-Fuel containing additive, Monster Diesel, imparts to diesel fuel the energy equivalent of 25 gallons of regular diesel fuel. This revolutionary quality seems destined to place Monster Diesel at the forefront of the energy revolution -- ahead of even Ethanol, which actually contains significantly less energy than regular gasoline and therefore has the opposite effect when added to fuel. When one part of Monster Diesel is added to 1,000 parts of diesel fuel, the energy density of the diesel has been shown to increase by 9.9%. This boost in energy contributes to an increase of mileage per gallon by as much as 15% for both on-road and off-road diesel engines.
"The development of this Syn-Fuel, like Nobel's invention of dynamite, is simply the stabilization of Nitro. But, like dynamite, the Syn-Fuel has the capacity to have an impact of similar magnitude on our society," said Mathew Zuckerman, Ph.D., CEO and President of Alkane. He went on to say, "The explosive power of Nitro in Nitroglycerine and in the gaseous product Nitromethane used in drag racing is well known. What Alkane has done is harness the power of Nitro in a liquid form to use as an alternative fuel. The ramifications of this proprietary technological breakthrough will have a similarly long lasting impact on our world."
Other benefits of Monster Diesel include:
- Instant impact -- Turns black smoke to white
- Less down time -- Metal to metal wear reduced by almost 40%
- All year fuel -- Sub-zero operation without plugging filters
- Price not dependent upon crude -- Made from feedstock rather than crude oil
