DOST supports production of biofuel from used oil
Davao City (7 May) -- Thinking of how to save your gasoline, diesel and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) consumption?
The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is assisting Inventor Emiliano F. Quitiol (EFQ) in the pilot production of his developed invention called "Conversion of Used Cooking Oil into Biofuel Product." DOST through the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI) has extended financial assistance to Mr. Quitiol amounting to Seven Hundred Thousand One Hundred Seventy Six Pesos (PhP700, 176.00) for this project.
DOST-TAPI's assistance covers the cost for fabrication of the needed equipment and working capital for its pilot production. EFQ's BIOFUEL plant had a test run on April 28, 2010 at Panacan, Davao City. The plant can produce two (2) million vials (30ml per vial) of biofuel per month.
The EFQ BIOFUEL is used as an additive to blend with the diesel, gasoline, and LPG fuels with a recommended ratio of 1:1 or 1ml biofuel to 1 liter gasoline or diesel fuel to improve performance of vehicle engines and reduce fuel consumption. The EFQ BIOFUEL has different formulation of product recommended for vehicle engines using gasoline, diesel and LPG fuels.
DOST is supportive of EFQ's developed invention utilizing used cooking oils and fats for biofuels production. Experts predict that fossil fuels will eventually run out within the next 30 years, resulting in the rapid search for fuel alternatives and enhancers, like EFQ BIOFUEL.
Quitiol is a member of the Davao Inventors Association (DIA), Southeastern Mindanao Inventors Society (SMIS), Mindanao Inventors Federation, Inc., and the Filipino Inventors Society. (PIA) [top]
