Bureau Veritas fuel analysis – Heavy Fuel Oil ISO 8217 HFO 180

In March 2019, the independent and accredited laboratory analyzed a sample of Heavy Fuel Oil 180; this sample was treated with the XBEE fuel technology.

The analysis demonstrated that such fuel (also known as HFO 180 / IFO 180); remains in compliance with the ISO 8217:2017 standard.

Conclusions by Bureau Veritas

“Testing was performed after laboratory hand-blend at 1:4000 Xbee additive doping rate, followed by two week retention period at constant temperature. The tested sample, blended with Xbee technology copes with the specification limits of IFO180 grade specifications according to ISO 8217:2017 standard”.

XBEE is an enzyme technology compatible with all fuels, in all engines. This cleaning treatment disperses water and fuel-derived organic contaminants.

Consequently, XBEE helps to clean up the whole fuel system and eliminate carbon deposits in the engines, hence a reduction of the maintenance costs and gas emissions _ in particular CO2, NOx and particulates.

Finally XBEE reduces the fuel consumption.
