RAILROADS

DIESEL FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TRAINS

Rail in the United States remains largely powered by diesel trains.  Freight and inter-city.

In common with all other sectors rising fuel costs are a big issue.

However, emissions may be the biggest factor. Railroads are large businesses operating under licences granted by government and as such they come under especial scrutiny for the efforts they make to control and reduce emissions.

ElimiNOX Eco ™ is proven to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 30% while improving fuel efficiency, with no additional investment, asset modification required; delivering benefits today and every day through to the time at which the rail network is fully electrified.

Reliability is another issue. Train stoppages and impacts on timetables and passenger satisfaction caused by engine breakdowns.  These breakdowns are often cause directly or indirectly by the issues presented by diesel as a fuel.  ElimiNOX Eco ™ will reduce those issues due to the efficiencies it achieves by preventing deposits, increasing lubricity and its emulsification of water into the diesel.

Cost Savings

You can expect a reduction in diesel fuel consumption of between 5% and 10%, plus lower maintenance costs.

Emissions

ElimiNOX Eco ™ reduces the production of harmful, environmentally damaging greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2/NOx (up to 30%), whilst also reducing deadly Particulate Matter (PMs), including soot and smoke (up to 60+% reduction for PM2.5 and 50+%

Railroads operating under government licence or as public transport companies are often subject to pressure to improve their environmental impact.

Incorporation of ElimiNOX Eco ™  become an important part of the railroad’s  decarbonisation responsibilities reducing CO2 emissions by 30%.

ElimiNOX Eco ™ has been rigorously and successfully tested by world renown laboratories including Socotec Laboratories. The test results have been declared as ‘game changing’ for the diesel engine, environmental pollution and the health problems associated with diesel engine pollutants.

Moreover, Bureau Veritas have certified that diesel fuel conditioned with ElimiNox Eco™  not only retains compliance with EN590 but also benefits from an increase of over 30% improvement in Lubricity.

Improvement in Reliability

The improvements in efficiency including the substantial increase in lubricity (30%) and reductions in deposits due to lower particulate matter emissions, result in better performance and critically less train breakdowns. Less breakdowns means not only lower costs, but better compliance with timetable requirements and passenger satisfaction.

Storage Tanks

ElimiNOX Eco ™ has the added benefit of reducing maintenance and improving the life span of fuel storage tanks.  It will also keep fuel in storage tanks clean, scavenging excess water from fuel tanks maintaining fuel integrity and stability contributing to reduced filter blocking. . It ensures diesel bug is both eliminated and prevented.
