Located in St. Louis, Missouri, International Fuel Technology, Inc. (“IFT”) has quickly made a name for themselves in the marketplace as a fuel performance enhancement company that has focused on providing its technology to large, industrial consumers of diesel fuel and bio-diesel fuel blends in the rail, stationary power generation and road transport industries. Today, IFT took a major step towards prominence with the announcement that the U.S. Patent Office has granted their corporation a new patent.
The patent covers IFT’s primary fuel “additive formulation, additive-containing fuel compositions and the method of manufacture”. Since the inception of IFT, the company has dedicated itself to improving upon the superior functionality and performance of its fuel additive formulations. In order to protect those chemical formulations, IFT has both pursued patents and operated under trade secret agreements. The company will continue to utilize both methods in the future and is dedicated to further advancing and improving their technology.
One of the major reasons that IFT has become such a force within their sector is the work of Dr. Sergio C. Trindade whom serves as the company’s Director of Science and Technology. Dr. Trindade is also a Nobel Co-Laureate and is a renowned name in the sector.
Commenting on what this patent will mean to the future of IFT, Dr. Trindade was quoted as saying, “This is a landmark for IFT. For the Patent Office to conclude that our fuel additive for improving fuel efficiency is a unique and novel enough chemical formulation worthy of a patent, speaks volumes about its underlying science and efficacy.”
