Fuels

DG Energy will produce ultra-clean synthetic fuels such as: ultra-low-sulfur diesel and military or commercial jet fuels that are cleaner burning than traditional fuels derived from petroleum. All fuels will be distributed and used in existing infrastructure or engines.

The diesel fuel will meet specifications of ASTM D-6751 and have 
CO2 emissions lower than conventional diesel fuel. The jet fuel-blending component, when mixed with conventional jet fuel, will make ASTM D-7566 jet fuel that is certified for use in commercial and military aircraft. The DGE ASTM D-7566 fuel will have lower CO2 lifecycle emissions than conventional petroleum-based jet fuel. 

DGE will provide customers with three classes of environmentally clean fuels. DGE Reduced Emissions fuels will have slightly lower 
CO2
 life cycle emissions, low sulfur and other particulates at the most competitive price. DGE Low Emissions fuels will have 
CO2 life cycle emissions that meet most U.S. government agency requirements. This fuel has half the sulfur and other particulates. It is available at competitive prices to conventional petroleum derived fuels. DGE Clear Emissions fuels will have CO2 life cycle emissions that exceed most U.S. government agency requirements. This fuel will have virtually no sulfur and other particulates and be available at prices competitive to oil at $75 per barrel. 

DG Energy Fuel Classes:
  • Reduced Emissions Diesel with a 20% lower CO2 lifecycle
  • Reduced Emissions Jet Fuel with a 10% lower CO2 lifecycle
  • Low Emissions Diesel with a 65% lower CO2 lifecycle
  • Low Emissions Jet Fuel with a 32% lower CO2 lifecycle
  • Clear Emissions Diesel with a 90% lower CO2 lifecycle
  • Clear Emissions Jet Fuel with a 45% lower CO2 lifecycle
DGE's ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel will be environmentally friendly, biodegradable and have no aromatics. When compared to traditional petroleum-derived low sulfur diesel tailpipe emissions, DGE's fuels will generate: lower amounts of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulfur oxides (SOX) and carbon dioxide. Also, when compared to traditional diesel fuels, DGE's fuels will also have excellent storage stability making it an ideal fuel for back-up power generators.

DGE's military and commercial jet fuel will have all of the positive environmental and efficiency benefits of DGE’s diesel fuel. Moreover, the jet fuel will reduce aircraft particulate matter emissions in idle engines by over 90%; a major source of ground level pollution. Also, the lower density of DGE jet fuel will enable aircraft to have a lower take-off weight, which will conserve fuel and reduce operating costs. Additionally, the lower density of DGE’s jet fuel could allow aircraft to carry heavier payloads.
