FITCH Fuel Catalyst Improved Combustion
Harmful Diesel Emissions
Improved Combustion Reduces #2 Heating Oil Emissions
- Every gallon of diesel fuel oil saved or not consumed means approximately 22lbs of CO² not emitted into the atmosphere.
- 100 gallons saved equals one metric tons (approx. 2,200 lbs) of CO²
- Average House-hold uses between 800 – 1000 gallons of #2 heating oil per year
- Fitch Fuel Catalyst can reduce annual fuel consumption by 10% - 25%
- Significant reduction of CO² emissions from House-hold oil heat systems
10% Fuel Savings 80 – 100 gallons not consumed
.8 – 1.0 tonnes of CO² reduced
15% Fuel Savings 120 – 150 gallons not consumed
1.2 – 1.5 tonnes of CO² reduced
20% Fuel Savings 160 – 200 gallons not consumed
1.6 – 2.0 tonnes of CO² reduced
25% Fuel Savings 200 – 250 gallons not consumed
2.0 – 2.5 tonnes of CO² reduced
Why is this sort of information important? Asthma related illness and incidents and hospitalizations visits will be reduced by Greenhouse gas reductions. Below is just an example of many doctor's views.
Asthma related illness and incidents and hospitalizations visits
might be reduced by Greenhouse gas reductions.
To whom it may concern:
I would like to stress the importance of greenhouse gas reductions in relation to reducing healthcare costs in New York State. We know that small particulate matter will increase the incidence of asthma, emphysema, heart attacks and strokes in individuals. By reducing small particulate matter, we will lower the inflammation in patient's arteries which cause unstable plaques within the arteries to rupture and initiate the process of heart attacks and strokes. Also, the improvement in air quality will help lower overall costs to New York State of hospital admissions, doctor visits, and medication costs.
In New York State, the costs of asthma are astronomical and are proportional to emissions. In 2005 alone, asthma affected over 1.1 million New York State adults and 370,000 children. During2003-2005 an average of 300 deaths per year occurred due to asthma in New York State. There were 42,000 asthma hospitalizations for NY residents in 2003-2005, for an age related death rate of 22 per 10,000 residents. During 2003-2005, looking at the annual average of 14,700 asthma hospitalizations for children between the ages 0 to 14, Medicaid enrollees accounted for 45% and Medicare enrollees accounted for an additional 20%. The total cost of asthma hospitalizations in NYS was approximately $502 million, for an average cost of $12,700 dollars per hospitalization in 2005. More than $134 million dollars were spent for the asthma related services for the Medicaid fee for service population in 2005.
Implementing new energy and fuel efficiency technologies can dramatically improve New York's air quality and thereby reduce asthma related hospitalizations and costs. Unlike solar and wind power, which will take another ten years to implement, the Fitch Fuel Catalyst can have immediate and measurable results now.

New York City has been well underway moving ahead with their use of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst in many area's. Below is an except from:
Mayor Bloomberg announces over 100 PlaNYC energy efficiency retrofit projects have been launched or completed in city-owned buildings.
Mayor to Share New York City's Energy Efficiency Efforts with the World at United Nations COP 15 Conference in Copenhagen in December
The Federal block grant funds will support the City’s initiatives to conduct building energy audits, retrofit and retro-commission buildings with new technologies, and implement an operations and maintenance strategy. In addition, Federal funding will support other efforts such as:
1. Clean Distributed Generation: feasibility assessments and engineering studies to assess the potential for combined heat and power technologies that could be sited in and around the most heavily energy-consuming City facilities;
2. Boiler Fuel Catalysts: Installation of fuel catalysts and economizers at 200 schools with residual oil burning boilers to reduce fuel use;
3. Revolving Loan Fund: A pilot revolving loan program, which is part of the City’s Greener, Greater Buildings Plan, to help capital-constrained building owners access funds to invest in commercially reasonable energy efficiency retrofits. New DCAS Division of Energy Management Will Lead PlaNYC Effort to Reduce Emissions
The retrofit projects, including retro-commissioning initiatives, that will help achieve the plan’s goals are tailored to each building, and may include energy efficient lighting and occupancy sensors; high efficiency chillers and boilers; building management systems; cooling towers; steam trap maintenance and pipe insulation; programmable thermostats; and ventilation optimization.
