MORGAN HILL, CA--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - Save The World Air, Inc. ("STWA") (
Dr. Rongjia Tao, Temple's principal researcher of the Elektra technology, reported that in recent dynamometer testing of the technology applied on a used diesel automobile, performance improved 20%. Dr. Tao stated, "The test result also indicates that diesel vehicles will increase their fuel mileage quite significantly once they have our electric fuel device installed. If the road test is under the same ideal condition as our lab test, the fuel mileage should be increased by 20%. Of course, since road tests are usually not under ideal conditions, the actual fuel mileage increase may not be as high as 20%. However, we are confident that our electric fuel device will significantly improve the diesel engine efficiency and is applicable to other internal combustion engines as well."
In other testing, our Elektra technology reduced the viscosity of many types of oil, including dirty motor oil and soybean oil, by roughly 30%. Dr. Tao noted, "Currently, manufacturers and processors heat oil to a high temperature in order to reduce its viscosity. In this way, the heating cost alone is reduced from $.12 to $.03 for production of one gallon bio-diesel. In some regions the cost of heating the production in the winter rises so high that some plants are shut down for 2-4 months a year. In addition to energy savings, manufacturers also can avoid un-wanted chemical reactions and corrosion, which can also occur at high temperature." Dr. Tao has reported considerable interest in the application of this technology by oil producers who are now funding Temple for proof of concept projects in the lab and in the field.
Commenting on today's announcement, STWA President and CEO Chuck Blum stated, "The results of Dr. Tao's studies, along with our similar findings dealing specifically with the application of uniform electrical fields (Elektra) to crude oil, gasoline, diesel, ethanol and biodiesel fuel as well as other industrial processes, hold significant promise and benefit to consumers, manufacturers and oil producers alike. Save The World Air, Inc. has been actively engaged in the development of a variety of advanced applications based on this technology and continues to research products that may prove to significantly reduce emissions, improve fuel efficiency, and increase performance."
