The Marine Industry Turns a New, Green Leaf

More and more industries are going green. From Whole Foods to Apple, one might typically think of companies attempting to become more eco-friendly as generally young and modern. But now, an old industry is finding new ways to lessen its impact on the environment.

New green technology is emerging in the marine industry. The boating and yachting community would not exist if it weren’t for the natural wonders of our environment, and developing more environmentally-conscious technology to preserve and protect it is essential. Fuel efficiency has been a top priority, and years of research and design have finally led to a promising new product on the market called GO2. Pronounced “go-two,” it is a diesel fuel optimizer additive, developed by Cerion Energy Inc. Nano-technology made this innovative additive possible; with an active ingredient of cerium dioxide that is 2.5 nanometers, it adheres to a petroleum-based solution for introduction into the fuel supply of the vessel. It is a highly reactive solution that renews the oxygen particles during the combustion cycle about 100 million times. This redistributes the oxygen, allowing the fuel to be absorbed more thoroughly.

The benefits of using G02 include lowering overall fuel costs and cutting down on harmful emissions such as CO and NO2. The solution also increases lubricity, which limits engine wear. Cerion Energy’s data reports that fuel efficiency will increase by 7 to 13 percent, while also decreasing soot by 30 percent. There is plenty of financial support for the research and development of new ways to cut costs and save energy in the marine industry.
