Iranian Oil Magnate Cuts Emissions Using 1.2 Million Fuel Magnets!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONDON, ENGLAND, May 19, 2005, --/WORLD-WIRE/-- The biggest environmental problem that Iran currently faces is air pollution, especially in the capital city of Tehran, but also in regional cities like Tabriz. Approximately 1.5 million tons of pollutants are produced annually in Tehran, with carbon monoxide from car exhausts making up the largest percentage of these pollutants. Iranian people now have to resort to wearing face masks to protect themselves and, overall, it is estimated that a staggering 4,000–5,000 Tehran residents die each year from air pollution!
Iran’s Department of the Environment and Japan’s International Cooperation Agency (JAICA) agreed to co-operate in reducing Tehran’s pollution levels. Recognising that the answer to the country’s air pollution problems requires more than just simple gestures, Tehran have invested $2.2 billion in a 15-year project aimed at reducing air pollution in Tehran by 16% by the year 2014. The plan, which includes steps to rehabilitate public transport and phase out old automobiles, is a compromise plan worked out by the World Bank, Japanese experts, and Iranian environmentalists.
Most of Tehran’s cars, of which there are nearly 2 million, are over 20 years old, with very poor fuel efficiency. They also lack catalytic converters and the ability to use lead-free fuels. Back in January of 2002, President Khatami declared that “from now on, all the Iranian-made cars will be provided with favourable standards for fuel consumption”. Khatami also pledged to move Iran towards lead-free gasoline in the very near future.
As part of this massive clean-up campaign, Ethosworld.com Ltd. has landed an initial contract to supply 1.2 million Ethos MAXPower fuel economisers to Iran. These units are sold extensively in the West for their great fuel saving properties but Iran is far more interested in their excellent emission reduction properties. Besides dramatically reducing fuel consumption, the MAXPower unit reduces harmful vehicle emissions by as much as 50%.
In 1952, Felix Bloch and Edward Mills Purcell were jointly awarded a Nobel prize for their work on magnetic fields on solid, liquid and gas substances. The theory behind using a powerful magnetic field to improve fuel burn in combustion engines is nothing new. The use of magnetic fields to improve the performance of combustion was reported as early as the 1940s. The U.S. Air Force used a device on their Mustang aircraft which allowed greater range and better performance from poor quality fuels. This proved very successful, and was subsequently used by the Royal Air Force on Spitfire and Hurricane aircrafts. The devices used back then were very heavy and cumbersome as they had to use electromagnetism to produce the required strength of magnetic field. But now, with the advent of new neodymium super magnets, even more powerful magnetic fields can be generated by units little larger than a matchbox.
The theory behind the principle is that when a very powerful magnetic field is applied directly to a fuel supply line, it conditions the fuel in such a way that it combines more readily with the oxygen in the air and thus burns more completely when combusted. This enhanced burn produces more power from the same given volume of fuel and exhausts far less pollutants, as the major part of the exhaust pollution consists of the un-burnt fuel particulates. This can be easily and quickly demonstrated using standard emissions testing equipment as used in any garage or vehicle MOT testing station.
In 1992, The Warren Springs Laboratories, the UK Government DTI’s own vehicle testing department, were commissioned to carry out extensive trials on the benefits of magnetic fuel conditioning technology and were very surprised by the results. Their 16-page in-depth report confirmed increased power, improved fuel economy and a reduction in harmful emissions. Summing up in their conclusion they stated; “Both series of tests showed consistent reductions in carbon dioxide, fuel consumption, and the oxides of nitrogen, and when the test unit was removed the trend was reversed. Also, the power increase observed in the first series of tests was sustained throughout the second series of tests and marginally increased to 11%”.
When interviewed, Peter Aldred, the CEO of Ethos World, said; “Following our very successful two years of extensive trials in Tehran, which proved the excellent emission reduction capabilities of fitting our Ethos MAXPower fuel units, we are very excited about landing this huge contract to supply Iran.
We have been working with the Iranians for the past two years and, following very positive government trials, they have committed to start fitting our units to all their new vehicles. We are confident that this is a very big step forward for them in their air pollution reduction project and it will dramatically help them to reduce their country’s pollution problems.
As you can imagine, it is a major contract for our company and we are confident that the massive credibility it gives us and our fuel economisers will help to open many new doors for us now in other countries who have similar pollution problems.
Our MAXPower units continue to grow in popularity here in Europe, in line with the ever-increasing pump prices for fuel. With record highs now of £4.00+ being charged for a gallon, even just a 10% fuel saving equates to 40p off every gallon for life! The retail price of our MAXPower unit is £50.00 which at these fuel prices offers incredibly fast payback times, especially for fleet owners and high mileage drivers.
This technology was originally tested and proved to be effective by the UK Government back in 1992 and now proved again in 2005 by the Iranian Government. Ethos MAXPower fuel economisers really do exactly what they say they do on the tin – they save you money and also make a major contribution towards saving our environment. We don’t own this planet we live on, we are merely caretakers for future generations and, if everyone were to do their bit by fitting a MAXPower unit now, it would make a dramatic overall difference for all of our tomorrows!”
