Diesel fuel is very susceptible to changes in its properties due to the production process in the refinery (for example, the production of low sulphur fuels) and when blended with bio-components to produce biofuel. This can often result in poor fuel stability which can manifest itself through fouling and clogging of diesel engine filters and injection equipment, injection pump wear, corrosion of internal parts, uneven burning of fuel generating the so-called black smoke and CO (carbon monoxide).


The power generation sector is broad and encompasses diesel-powered units of all types and sizes. For standby systems, the biggest challenge is to ensure the quality of the diesel that allows immediate start- up and long life for engines and accessory parts.

Through their extremely efficient detergent, anticorrosive and antibacterial functionalities, milEx™ performance additives eliminate the main problems resulting from the use of diesel that has been in storage for long periods. In addition to these properties, there are additives packages that are formulated with patented “combustion improver” chemistry that increases a diesel’s combustion efficiency thus improving fuel consumption - that has a clear association with an extraordinary environmental footprint within the energy sector as it reduces the emission of greenhouse gases.
