On the past year Eric Cottell has installed and tested his emulsion combustion unit (ECU)
manufactured by Nonox Ltd, on some of my equipment.

We first installed the device on a generator set powered by a 3306 Caterpillar four stroke
diesel engine, and nest, on one of my barges powered by an 871 Detroit two stroke diesel.

A number of tests were performed by Mr. Cottell’s U.S. Licensee, Cotefco Corporation, who sent their vice president of engineering, Charles Market, to verify the results and later further testing was verified by the BEST commission (our version of the EPA) Bahamas Electricity Corporation (utility), and the college of the Bahamas.  Both emission and fuel consumption results were excellent.

Six months ago, (June 2006) and ECU was installed on my ship “Bahama Wave’s” port engine, a Caterpillar 3412 four stroke diesel engine which had a soot problem.  When the ECU is operating, soot is dramatically reduced and the fuel consumption appears to be reduced fifteen plus percent.

The installation was performed without interruption to the ship’s busy schedule and has caused no down time.  Over the past six months, the system has been refined to a simple mode of operation that an unskilled seaman can operate and not break anything.

Due to the reduced soot, we expect to benefit from the reduced maintenance costs as well as fuel savings.  I believe this is a good product and will be especially useful on long voyages where fuel savings could translate to increased cargo capacity.

This model 50 emulsifies enough fuel to heat over 40,000 gallons of waste vegetable oil for processing activities at the Wholesome Energy plant.
Wholesome Energy model 50 - #2 diesel fuel

Fuel savings: appx. 10%
Emissions reduction: appx. 20%

Wholesome Energy's model 600 processes and generates enough mixture to comfortably fuel the Swift Resolute (pictured below) and still save fuel and reduce emissions.

Boiler Application - 100 gph

As of 1/1/2024

The new updated unit has been in operation for over 5 years of trouble free service.

Over 360,796 gallons of fuel was emulsified with over 44,358 gallons of water providing the building managers with a 60% + reduction in soot and particulate emissions.

Substantial fuel savings continue to be achieved due to a more complete combustion of the fuel as well as better heat transfer due to cleaner boiler tubes.

As of 1/11/2024
Over 116,714 gallons of fuel and over 13,137 gallons of water since the install in fall of 2019.
