APPL Fuel Reformation Technology is focused on creating premium stable hydrogen-rich fuels (Reformed fuels) that generate substantially less carbon emissions and are less costly than traditional hydrocarbon fuels.
The Company’s unique technological process uses patented technology (Nano- Plasma Fusion Fuel Technology) in its Fuel Reformation Unit (FRU) and SulfexTM Technology that can be installed and used at the customer’s location or its own preferred Production Facility.

In APPL/PFG Nano-Plasma Fusion Fuel Technology, the high fusion force of the plasma technology makes it possible to mix the highly vaporized hydrogen-laden nanonized product and oil to produce reformed fuels that are environmentally friendly, truly stable, storable (more than three years so far), miscible fuel, and residual fuel applications for all levels of base fuel sources - Automobile Gas Oil (AGO), Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK) and Low Pour Fuel Oil (LPFO). The completeness of combustion in APPL reformed fuels is remarkable.

APPL Nano-Plasma Fusion Fuel Technology project is not complicated by any long-term prospect of both mitigation and adaptation project impacts as well as the uncertainty associated with climate change impacts. It is a SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely) project that seeks to adapt to the expected impacts of climate change and promote low carbon emissions growth strategies to mitigate greenhouse gases and the dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system by mitigating the short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) such as black carbon (BC), methane (CH4) and other precursors of tropospheric ozone (O3).
2. SulfexTM Technology
APPL/APT has a leading-edge desulfurization technology which provides an effective method of controlling reagents used in desulfurization and is fully capable of economically achieving the mandated decrease in sulfur.
The current process of desulfurization in refineries uses Hydro-Desulfurization process with hydrogen gas, high temperatures (300 to 400 degrees Celsius), and high pressures (30 to 130 atmospheres) to remove sulfur from distillates. However, this process is limited to large and most modern refineries because of capital and operating cost that are too high for smaller refineries.
1. Nano-Plasma Fusion Fuel Technology (NPFFT)
APPL/PFG’s Nano-Plasma Fusion Fuel Technology is focused on creating premium fuels that are environmentally friendly, rich in hydrogen (12-13%) with a flash point of between 65 - 68 using nanotechnology. This will enhance the flame velocity and thus permit the engine to operate with cleaner air to diesel mixture than otherwise possible. The result is a far less pollution with more power and better mileage. The process shall yield benefits in improved combustion stability and reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) and hydrocarbon emissions.
APPL’s Quality Assurance (QA) Laboratory and Biotechnology Research Centre is fully equipped to ensure high quality products and innovative researches. APPL’s main focus on this, is also to valorize “wealthy wastes” into useful economic products and develop cost effective and easyto-use remediation technology

Our technology reduces the cost of desulfurization of distillate fuel. It is less expensive and much safer to use than the HDS used around the world. It does not use Hydrogen nor produces Hydrogen sulfide. It uses common non-exotic chemicals and produces sulfones by-products and improve environmental footprints. It scalable and easily changed to add capacity and capability.
The basic principle of our technology is that it uses a water-based reagent, which contains the oxidizer (hydrogen peroxide), to oxidize the sulfur. Once the sulfur compounds are oxidized, they are removed from the fuel
APPL/APT’s SulfexTM reduces the cost of desulfurization of distillate fuel. The ultra-low sulfur fuel produced is less expensive and much safer to use than the HDS used around the world. APPL/APT’s SulfexTM does not use Hydrogen nor produces Hydrogen sulfide, but sulfones as by-product.
