MSAR® is commercially and operationally proven in both steam boilers and diesel engines. It can be supplied directly from candidate refineries and delivered to a power plant using conventional infrastructure designed for heavy fuel oil.
Over 60 million tonnes of oil-in-water (OIW) emulsion fuel, branded Orimulsion®, was manufactured from 8° API Orinoco bitumen in Venezuela, and was subsequently fired worldwide in base-load boilers of varying sizes (50MWth to 770MWe). MSAR® is an improved version of Orimulsion® and the latest generation OIW emulsion, with a key difference being the technology can now be deployed in oil refineries and is applicable to refinery residue streams, as well as extra-heavy crudes. Key members of the Quadrise team worked in the original Orimulsion® business.
Quadrise Fuels International plc (LON:QFI) is the global innovator and licensor of disruptive heavy oil technology that produces MSAR® fuel. The Quadrise team is a unique combination of energy sector experts and fuel specialists that were instrumental in the prior commercialisation of 60 million tons of Orimulsion® fuel worldwide.
