Our fuel specs

Biofuel

Why is our biofuel different?

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? The short answer: 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 – 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 our fuel be used?

For Marine Use

MASH Bio Additive for Methanol
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 Bio Additive for Cardinal
is compliant with ISO 8217:2017 requirements in a blend up to B65. Therefore it can also be used in the marine sector while also being ISCC EU compliant and is to be sold as per RED II directives.

For Automotive transport

The fuel here is a distilled product that is prepared under vacuum conditions. It is EN590 compliant in a 3.8% blend. The validation was done by Danish Technological Institute’s diesel engines at various loads.

For blending with methanol

MASH oil blended with methanol on a Blend of B23 and B58 has been operated on a regular diesel engine. The high-quality pyrolysis oil acts as a combustion enhancement and has shown that it can make regular diesel engines operate when mixed with methanol, without any up-gradation. 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 oil acts as an enhancement.

With this groundbreaking approach ship owners interested in using methanol can completely avoid the CAPEX expenditure of diesel to methanol engine modifications. MASH oil can be blended in Methanol and directly operated in diesel engines.

Stationary engine / Boiler use

MASH oil can be used in stationary diesel engines. Herein we MASH oil can be used in a regular engine by (a) pre-heating (b) diesel blending (c) methanol blending. Power plants or generators that need fuel oil for a constant supply of power are perfectly suitable for such engines. B30 biofuel has been successfully operated in the engine tests. MASH oil has been also operated on various smaller engines. MASH can help reduce GHG emissions by 90% for stationary engine operators with fossil diesel.

Boilers:

MASH oil has been operated in burners, marine boilers and industrial furnaces. The fuel has demonstrated reliable consistent operation. MASH oil 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).
