Nouryon, formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals, will expand its offerings to customers in the fuels market through an exclusive global licensing agreement with SulNOx Group, a hydrocarbon fuel emulsification and additive specialist.
Under the agreement, Nouryon will introduce two new additives, Berol 6446 and Berol 6430, that help improve the combustion efficiency of diesel and lower-viscosity heavy fuel oil (HFO) for transportation and power generation.
“The new additives use SulNOx’s technology which is designed to emulsify hydrocarbon fuels to ensure more efficient combustion, resulting in reduced harmful gases and other air pollutants,” said Lynnette Bowen, global marketing director, Nouryon.
Gary Bostock, CEO and co-founder of SulNOx, commented: “We are delighted to have joined forces with Nouryon and look forward to working together to provide more environmentally conscious solutions to the market.”
“Our main focus in the market is helping customers formulate fuels and lubricants that meet next-generation legislation and OEM requirements. By forming strategic partnerships and working collaboratively we’re able to deliver on this even faster,” said AB Ghosh, managing director, Surface Chemistry, Nouryon.
