New Generation’s Biofuels Technology to Participate in Phase Two Testing at Baltimore

New Generation Biofuels Holdings, a leader in biofuels technology and products, made an agreement with the City of Baltimore for conducting a Phase 2 evaluation program, testing the company’s biofuel in institutional boilers for a one year period.

The maximum volume is limited to 440,000 gallons. Miles F. Mahoney, CEO and President of New Generation, declared that the company was happy to move into the 2nd phase of the program with Baltimore City, to carry out long term evaluations and tests on the biofuels in many of Baltimore’s institutional boilers. Implementing green initiatives is a part of the City of Baltimore’s activities to reduce harmful greenhouse gases. He stated that their biofuel had already proved its mettle during phase I and were looking forward to show the fuel’s abilities through extended burn testing.

The phase 1 program proved that the New Generation Biofuel was highly stable and operable in addition to emitting reduced amounts of Nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur oxide (Sox) in comparison to fossil diesel and biodiesel fuels. Tests conducted at the Eastern Health Center’s boiler with a Sun-Ray burner showed a 40% reduction in NOx and 90% reduction in Sox. The tests done at Pimlico Police Training Center with the HB Smith cast iron boiler and power flame burner, revealed 60% reduction in NOx. The long term operational impact of the biofuel would be determined by the Phase 2 program.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the Mayor of Baltimore City, in a statement to the press disclosed that the biofuel had already proved itself during Phase1, by reducing huge amounts of pollutants and if the outcome of phase2 was also a success then the City would begin using the cleaner vegetable -based biofuel technology in its structures. This biofuel is a blended product produced from either new or recycled animal fats or plant oils and could be used as a substitute for diesel, kerosene and others. This biofuel could also be blended with heating oil or utilized with coal in co-firing applications. Material equipment changes are not required for using this biofuel and they offer remarkably low emission rates when compared to traditional fuels.
