GREENPLUS FUEL CATALYST REDUCES EMISSIONS/IMPROVES FUEL ECONOMY.

Biofriendly Corporation, Monrovia, Calif., has completed a test on a heavy-duty diesel truck engine that successfully demonstrated the ability of its liquid fuel combustion catalyst, Green Plus, to lower harmful emissions while improving fuel economy. The test was funded by a grant from the State of Texas Council on Environmental Quality. California Environmental Engineering (CEE), one of the few EPA and California Air Resources Board (CARB)-certified laboratories in the country, conducted the test.

CEE performed the test on a CARB-certified Detroit Diesel Series 60 heavy-duty engine. This engine was recently rebuilt and already produced emissions levels that were close to or significantly below the emissions standards for CARB. With the addition of Green Plus to the fuel, the emissions were further reduced. Volatile Hydrocarbons were reduced an average of 10.64%; Nitrogen Oxides were reduced 5.09%; and Total Particulates were reduced 8.35%. In addition, fuel economy was determined to improve 5% during a test simulating a typical over-the-road driving mode. CEE deemed the results "significant and noteworthy."

The testing was conducted using the AVL Urban 8-mode steady state cycle with and without Green Plus. This 8-mode test is designed to simulate the full United States EPA Federal Test Procedure. "We are very pleased with the test results," said Bob Carroll, Chairman and CEO of Biofriendly Corporation. "The AVL Urban 8-mode test is extremely challenging, making it very difficult to produce lower emissions. The fact that Green Plus improved the results this much on an exceptionally clean engine under these test conditions supports the much stronger results we achieve in the real world, where engines are far dirtier."

Carroll added that the company is looking forward to completing full EPA and CARB verification of Green Plus for use in diesel and gasoline engines.

Credentials of California Environmental Engineering (CEE) - Located in Santa Ana, California, CEE is an independent laboratory that routinely provides testing support for vehicle manufacturers, agencies of the State of California (CARB), the US Federal Government (EPA) and private institutions. CEE participates yearly in a multi-laboratory cross check program sponsored by CARB and typically registers in the top ten per cent of test facilities that closely emulate the average emission readings of all participating Labs. The laboratory is fully CARB certified and EPA registered to perform independent testing of many types of engines both in steady state and transient cycle test series.

Green Plus - Under development for over 10 years, Green Plus is a new product that employs nanotechnology (working at the molecular level) to achieve a breakthrough combination of improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. Green Plus is a liquid combustion catalyst that is added in very small quantities to fuel in order to create a more complete, cooler and more linear burn. The product has undergone rigorous testing in the United States and Europe, and has over 50 million miles of on-road/on-ocean use. Green Plus is now available commercially worldwide.

About Biofriendly Corporation

Biofriendly Corporation has introduced Green Plus, a liquid fuel combustion catalyst, the world's most effective solution for significantly improving fuel economy and reducing harmful emissions. Green Plus is designed for use in diesel, gasoline and other hydrocarbon-based fuels. This patent-pending product was invented by the same innovators who created Vortoil, the award-winning oil-water separator for offshore oil production.
