A US patented technology comprises of a formulation of high-energy nitroalkane-based organic hydrocarbon compounds that is dosed in fuels to increase their chemical reactivity enhancing fuel combustion process in engines to achieve sustainable fuel savings, reduced emissions, and cleaner engines.
The patented technology is also registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States of America.
This breakthrough combustion detergency technology generates in engines a fast burn at high temperature to reduce the sooty flame and removes carbon buildup in engines through robust combustion efficiency. At the same time, MAZ uniquely generates a molecular protective film to lubricate the engine parts during combustion. This fuel-based lubrication reduces heat loss and engine friction.
These unique features in the combined combustion processes enable MAZ to attain reduction in fuel consumption and emissions whilst keeping the engines clean and adequately lubricated all the time to maximize thermal and mechanical efficiency.
This breakthrough technology generates a fast burn at high temperature to not only reduce fuel consumption by more than 8%, but also reduce sooty flame to produce a cleaner engine. Additionally, it naturally produces a protective film to minimize engine friction and heat loss, thus improving mechanical efficiency to deliver extra horsepower.
Studies have shown that 1/3 of fuel consumption is spent on overcoming engine friction. Upon combustion, MAZ naturally generates greasing properties inside the combustion chamber as shown on these injector bodies.
The greasing properties help to reduce friction and heat generation promoting mechanical efficiency of the engines.
This unique film also reduces exhaust temperature.
MAZ also removes carbon buildup deposits on diesel engine cylinder heads.
MAZ Nitro flame is continuously faster burn at higher temperature without any flame quenching and reigniting, thus reducing and preventing soot formation in flame.
Using chemiluminecence images, it is shown that Nitro-ignited spray flame shows greater intensity than fuel without MAZ.
The presence of MAZ has contributed to the acceleration of predisposition activity, thus releasing abundant radicals enhancing the flame speed and improve combustion.
Adding MAZ also reduces the autoignition temperature of the fuel resisting the fluctuating change in ambient temperature.
The incandescence images further shows fuel is prone to yield soot formation wherever it is in flames. The images shows that the abundant soot is produced inside the flame. However, in the case of MAZ dosed fuel the soot concentrate in higher temperature reaction zone is decreasing. It assumes that MAZ prohibits the onset of soot production in the high temperature reaction zone.

In September, 2013, the SAE-China held a Seminar in Beijing affirming MAZ as the world’s first multifunctional fuel additive in simultaneously achieving fuel savings, engine detergency, and reduced exhaust emissions.
Most other fuel additives are “detergency control additives” using nitrogen derived products such as PolyEther Amine (PEA) for fuel system cleaner. The long term effect seems elusive as the sooty flame regularly overwhelms the cleansing activity in combustion chamber.
