CO2- Reducing Fuel Oil Additive


CO2- Reducing Fuel Oil Additive

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) recently announced development of a fuel additive for merchant ships that reduces carbon dioxide and boosts efficiency. This development was undertaken in conjunction with Taihokohzai Co., Ltd., Japanís largest fuel additive manufacturer. MOL will use the new additive, called TAICRUSH HD, on its operated vessels in order to reduce the environmental impact of its operations.

TAICRUSH HD improves the ignition performance and sludge (carbon and sediment) dispersion in heavy fuel oils. It reduces ignition delay and afterburning time by more than 30%. Compared to conventional fuel oil additives for large-scale vessels, the new additive promotes improved combustion and reduced fuel consumption.

This new product was used on 106 voyages of a large Japanese coastal ferry which has a constant sailing schedule and is rarely affected by disturbance effects such as severe marine weather. MOL and Taihokohzai collected and analyzed data, conducted engine tests on shore and at sea, and verified fuel efficiency improvements ranging from 1.12% to 1.46%.

Mr. Makoto Haneda, General Manager, MOL
