EcoChem Alternative Fuels (EAF) is seeking $30 million to deploy their Smart Pump (fuel dispenser) equipment worldwide and expand into the maritime industry

Provides High-Performance Clean Diesel (HPCDTM) using a patented technology solution

HPCDTM  is a highly refined, superior diesel fuel that meets new quality standards and protects critical engine components from many of the risks associated with poor quality, standard grade ULSD fuel on the market today

Two clean diesel technology patents granted

Transport Refinery Unit (TRU) is attached to the diesel tanker for cleaning before the fuel is stored in the diesel tanks or their Smart Pump technology (which provides the cleaning as the vehicle tank is filled)

Diesel fuel is a trillion-dollar global addressable market

Extensive target market for clean diesel includes municipalities (including public transit and schools), trucking, railroads, maritime, industrial power and the military

There is a technology gap between fuel and engine technology for commercial fleets due to outdated fuel quality standards

The World-Wide Fuel Charter has stated that a full 50% of the diesel fuel dispensed around the world does not meet the International Standards Organization, or ISO codes, for cleanliness

The demand for OEM compliant fuel has never been higher yet it is not commercially available today to the majority of the marketplace

Climate-specific investment flows are growing, with $268 billion per year invested from the private sector and $96 billion per year from the public sector

Ambient air pollution is the leading environmental health risk factor globally, resulting in 8.7 million worldwide deaths in 2018 from stroke, ischemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, lower respiratory infections, and diabetes

Helping Great Companies Grow


EAF is expected to retrofit and upgrade fuel supply chains “at the pump” with a best-in-class technology that eliminates poor quality and contaminated fuel as it is being pumped into vehicles and equipment. The result is a superior fuel know as High-Performance Clean Diesel (HPCDTM)

The smart pump is a stop gap measure

    • Particle removal water removal to meet OPEM spec

    • Gauss fields accelerate catalysis of formula, charges electron spin and ionizes hydrocarbons

    • Reformulate with precision of oxygen catalyst, lubricant and stabilizer
