What is the difference between No. 6 Fuel produced by Plastic2Oil versus industry standard?

No. 6 Fuel is heavy fuel generally used in industrial boilers and ships.

No. 6 Fuel produced by the P2O process is much cleaner than existing industry standard; containing less than 16 ppm of sulphur in comparison with the maximum of 30,000 ppm allowable in mainstream No. 6 Fuels. Unlike standard industry fuel, Plastic2Oil’s No. 6 Fuel does not contain heavy metals, water or sediment. Other No. 6 Fuel products are residue products of the refining process and are considered residue fuels, whereas Plastic2Oil’s No. 6 Fuel is a direct product of its P2O process, meaning it does not require further blending.

Plastic2Oil’s No. 6 Fuel is a clear brown liquid at temperatures of 90º F. It has been tested by major industrial users with positive results.
