Texoga has followed research conducted by U.S. and NATO military laboratories for years on the development of fire resistant fuels that prevent explosions and flame propagation related to accidents and ballistic ignition sources. The most promising fire resistant fuels have involved biodiesel blends that have been used in Europe for decades.

Biodiesel involves long carbon-chain fuels made from vegetable oils instead of petroleum. Biodiesel can run in all types of diesel engines (including most aircraft and power plants) with higher lubricity, greatly reduced emissions and no toxicity. In addition, the biodiesel blends do not form flammable vapors and resist fire even in rigorous military live fire tests. Unfortunately, European biodiesel have been cost prohibitive by American standards. Since costly soybean or rapeseed oils are used for blending, the resultant fuels average $3.00-$4.50 per gallon. This is an acceptable consumer fuel in Europe, however, as this price is comparable to petroleum-based diesel and gasoline with government subsidies existing as well.

Texoga's development of SAFuel blends involves a proprietary process of manufacturing pure biodiesel from used vegetable oils that are offered under the heading of "yellow grease." This greatly lowers the cost and allows for marketing of this non-toxic environmental and fire-safe fuel at competitive prices to petrodiesel.

The development of biodiesel has involved decades of extensive testing in dozens of engine types. Test results confirm a reduction of 80% in CO2 emissions, 90% reduction in unburned hydrocarbons and a complete elimination of sulphur dioxide. In addition, carbon monoxide and particulates are reduced. Performance monitoring also confirms that the higher lubricity of the SAFuel blend can extend the life of most engines without adversely affecting fuel consumption, ignition, power output and torque.

The SAFuel blending process utilizes a series of measurement, mixing and separation systems that include proprietary injection flow meters, cyclonic blending units and low shear chemical pumps. The result is a continuous flow system that assures quality control fuel output with varying input mixtures. Consistent fuel quality is essential for the high performance engines for aircraft, military and fire/rescue vehicles.
