Alkane Files for Patent on New Synthetic Fuel
Tuesday, April 13, 2010
Baltimore, MD -- Alkane, Inc. (ALKN.PK) announced today it has filed for a patent for a newly developed synthetic fuel for use as an additive, blend or fuel in gasoline powered engines. The fuel is not petroleum based, so it requires no crude oil to produce. It delivers more power to the engine than gasoline and is expected to produce significantly less heat.
The technology behind the fuel produces unconventional combustion in an internal combustion engine. This results in as much as 18 times the momentum imparted to an engine as compared to the combustion wave that occurs when fueled by gasoline. Effectively, this fuel enhances mechanical energy output from an engine.
“The ability to enhance mechanical energy output from an internal combustion engine is groundbreaking,” said Mathew Zuckerman, Ph.D., CEO & President of Alkane. “The internal combustion engine of today still works on the basic pioneering work of Nicolaus Otto’s original invention in 1854. The fuel is burned and up to 75% goes into waste heat, while only approximately 25% is converted to mechanical energy. Our new fuel creates no such waste heat during combustion, but rather all of its energy is useful as mechanical energy in the engine. This will truly be a revolutionary innovation.”
“America needs to develop products like our flagship product, Monster Diesel, and our new synthetic fuel, that promise to multiply the usefulness of our domestic reserves of energy,” said Lou Petrucci, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the company. “America faces increased competition from other countries for sources of energy to fuel our economy and increase our standard of living. We have the answer.”
