Bureau Veritas fuel analysis – Heavy Fuel Oil ISO 8217 HFO 380 with fuel additive to reduce emissions

In December 2018, the independent and accredited laboratory Bureau Veritas analyzed a sample of Heavy Fuel Oil 380 treated with the XBEE fuel additive to reduce emissions. The analysis demonstrated that such fuel, also known as HFO 380 / IFO 380, 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 RMG380 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.
