Innospec Inc. announced that it has received approval for its ECOCLEAN 4200 detergent as a TOP TIER™ diesel additive.
Innospec’s ECOCLEAN product line was the first to be introduced to the U.S. market in 2006, to address the unique issues associated with the combination of modern high-pressure common rail diesel engines, and the challenges of ultra-low sulphur diesel. The product line is already being used in the treatment of billions of gallons of diesel fuel each year.
“The TOP TIER Diesel Standard has been developed by a group of Original Equipment Manufacturers in close coordination with the CQA (Center for Quality Assurance). These standards are intended to improve diesel fuel performance, quality and cleanliness. Ultimately, this helps boost performance, reduce emissions and downtime, and improve efficiency,” said Jim Vrzak, vice president of Innospec Fuel Specialties.
“Development of new technology to meet industry and customers’ needs has always been at the core of Innospec’s strategy. I am pleased that the quality of our products is being recognized by the industry, and we look forward to continuing to work with our customers to identify future needs and continually advance the technology,” said Patrick S. Williams, president and chief executive officer.
Innospec manufactures and supplies a wide range of specialty chemicals to markets in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific. The Fuel Specialties business specialises in manufacturing and supplying fuel additives that improve fuel efficiency, boost engine performance and reduce harmful emissions.
