In 2010, the APT Company of the USA joined with the TRANSFUEL Company of Ecuador to demonstrate the operation of Fuel Oil Emulsion (FOE) Fuel in the process boilers of the El Café plant in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The intent of the joint venture was to prove the efficacy of FOE Fuels in decreasing boiler emissions and increasing plant operational efficiency. FOE Fuels reduced NOx Emissions by 13%, PM Emissions by 29% and increased Boiler Efficiency on the order of 3.5% This paper presents the full record of this successful FOE Demonstration Program.
