Rising emission of toxic gases in the atmosphere has created concern among government authorities from various nations. Adding specialty fuel additive in fuel reduces the emission rate of vehicles. Additives improve fuel efficiency of diesel, distillate fuels, gasoline, and alter burn rates of combustion in high temperatures.
On the basis of raw material, additives are mainly of two types, specialty fuel additives (SFA) and oxygenated. SFA include antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, deposit control agents, metal deactivators, and antiknock agents. The special fuel additives markets are continuously focused on the development and modernization of the product for performance enhancement and functionality, increase mileage, and decrease ecological dangers.
