CITGO Petroleum Selects Biofriendly's Green Plus for Low Emission Diesel Formulation in Texas
"Biofriendly's Green Plus additive is a very economical, easy to implement solution in compliance with the Texas LED regulations," said Pam Royer, manager fuels planning and regulatory compliance. "As an approved alternative diesel fuel formulation, Green Plus has achieved equivalency to California diesel emissions and that is a major benefit to the market and the entire State of Texas. We'll be ready to deliver TxLED fuel to our customers by Oct. 1," she added.
“We're gratified to have been selected by a leading company like CITGO”
"We're gratified to have been selected by a leading company like CITGO," said Robert Carroll, Chairman and CEO of Biofriendly. "CITGO is leading the way to reduced emissions in Texas, and we're pleased to partner with them."
Green Plus has been approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) as an emission reduction solution for both on-road and off-road use. This means that on-road trucks, off-road construction equipment, school buses, locomotives, and marine vessels that use diesel fuel in the 110 counties in Texas designated by the U.S. EPA as non-attainment areas (areas which have consistently surpassed the ozone and other air pollution levels) may use fuel treated with Green Plus to meet the new Texas Low Emission Diesel (TxLED) law that goes into effect October 1.
About Biofriendly Corporation and Green Plus
Under development for over 10 years, Green Plus is a product that employs nanotechnology (working at the molecular level) to achieve a breakthrough combination of reduced emissions and improved fuel economy. Green Plus is added in very small quantities to fuel in order to create a more complete, cooler and more linear burn. The product has undergone rigorous testing in the United States and Europe, and has over 150 million miles of on-road/on-ocean use. Green Plus is now available commercially worldwide.
Biofriendly Corporation has introduced Green Plus, the world's most effective solution for significantly improving fuel economy and reducing harmful emissions. Green Plus is designed for use in diesel, gasoline and other hydrocarbon-based fuels. This patent-pending product was invented by the same innovators who created Vortoil, the award-winning oil-water separator for offshore oil production.
