Nano Chemical Systems Make Green Oils and Lubricants from Palm Oil Waste by-Product

Nano Chemical Systems Holdings, Inc., announced today that nano-enhanced, environmentally friendly, "Green" oils and lubricants can be made from a waste by-product of one Palm Biodiesel production process to offset costs and bring fuel pricing below the cost per barrel of crude oil. This breakthrough process will bring the performance enhancements previously available to automobile racers only, into the hands of consumers at low price points associated with the material miser quantities, which are linked with implementing nanotechnology.

Soy-based Biodiesel is the standard for performance at low temperatures with a lower cloud point than palm based Biodiesel. Palm based Biodiesel must be processed to remove these materials and in one process methyl ester form of component materials are removed to be able to bring the cloud point in line with soy-based Biodiesel. The material removed is a waste byproduct that reduces overall Biodiesel production by as much as 15%. The Company's process of incorporating the waste byproduct into high value lubricants brings Biodiesel cost below the price of crude oil, with the revenue generated by producing nano-enhanced oils and lubricants.

Corn, with its ever-increasing prices, is the principle feedstock for ethanol and is expected to continue to replace acreage traditionally intended for the cultivation of soy, thus increasing the demand for an alternative blend of BioDiesel derived from palm oil. As a feedstock for Biodiesel, palm oil has the advantage of requiring far less land than soy does and has a yield of 6,000 liters per hectare, compared to only 446 liters per hectare for soy.

The Company uses its patent applied for process to immerse nano-sized molybdenum metal ball bearings to produce high-value added oils and lubricants from the byproducts of palm-biodiesel production. These enhanced oils and lubricants give the consumer the advantages of longer machine life from reduced ware and superior performance at high temperatures and pressures associated with "moly" lubricants from the automobile race track that are soon to be available at a low-consumer price point. These oils and lubricants are highly biodegradable and have the promise of non-hazardous waste disposal. These new oils and lubricants also offer the promise of reduced crank case and other lubricant emissions to improve air quality.

The oils and lubricants are a solid marketing complement to ethanol-fueled automobiles. It only makes sense to use "Green", "Clean technology" oils and lubricants once the car owner has made the commitment to a renewable, environmentally friendly energy solution. There are a number of testing, process, specification, approval, supply channel and distribution channel issues that need to be overcome before these oils and lubricants can be offered for sale.
