Taconic Energy Overview

Save billions of gallons of oil

Eliminate tens of millions of tons of CO2

Do it NOW – without changing vehicles, fuel, or infrastructure

Each gallon of bio-surfactant saves 50 gallons of fuel and 1000 pounds of CO2

Based on sound science and validated in extensive testing

Unique chemistry

NYSERDA contracts

Independent lab testing

Strong team

Multi billion dollar market

Market penetration strategy

product
Product

How it works

Frictional losses are substantial

Ability to target site

Metal affinity and lubricity

Dose

One gallon of bio-surfactant treats 2,000 gallons of fuel

Benefits

2% to 5% fuel savings

(3% to 7% with ongoing use)

50 gallons of fuel saved per gallon of bio-surfactant

1000 pounds CO2 reduced per gallon of bio-surfactant

Reduce engine wear

Competition

Initially competing against non-consumption

Detergents

Restore performance v. improving performance

Can have large affects in select vehicles

After-market products

Different market segment

High consumer skepticism

Traditional fuel additive companies

taconic chemistry
Taconic Chemistry
  • Delivered with fuel to site where needed (“silver bullet”)
  • Thermally survives on combustion wall, provide friction modification there and in oil, combusted when not on wall
  • Polar head and attachment chemistry matters
    • High affinity for metal surface
    • Orientation to provide dense packing
      • Tail properties matter
      • Length, geometry and bulk

Molecule Design Strategy

Lubricity providing Tail

Attachment Point

Polar Head

bio surfactant design considerations
Bio-surfactant Design Considerations
  • Environmental
    • EPA registered for use in US fuel
      • Substantially similar classification (CHONS)
      • Renewably derived – used in cosmetics/shampoos
    • Compatible with commercial handling and distribution
  • Cost and Processing
    • Derived from inexpensive starting materials
    • Special production metallurgy or conditions not needed
    • Desired product maximized/waste minimized
  • Intellectual property estate being pursued
    • Broad patent on class of materials as fuel additives- application filed
    • Method for use in diesel – application being prepared

Vehicle Testing

Fleet Test

Taconic Pkwy Road Test

EPA HFET

“Real World” Road Test

Standard Dyno Test

“Real World” Experience

  • “Real World” evaluation in centrally fueled fleets
  • Historical vehicle fuel economy comparisons for single sites
  • Historical site fuel usage comparisons
  • Engine wear data comparisons via oil sample analyses
