Jun 01, 2010, 16:00 ET from Alternative Petroleum Technologies S.A.

LUXEMBOURG, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Alternative Petroleum Technologies S.A. (APT) announced today that it has completed the commissioning of an emulsified biodiesel fuel blending unit near Sacramento, CA. The blending unit has a 14 million liters-per-year capacity and will initially be utilized to support the APT agreement with the Port of Los Angeles. Once the Port of Los Angeles program is running on a continuous basis, APT will proceed to market emulsified biodiesel fuel in California's larger cities along the major state roadways.

Dr. Thomas Houlihan, a senior engineer at APT, stated, "Since I was first introduced to emulsified fuel technology during my tour at the White House Science Office, I have recognized the technology as a realistic method for cost-effective reduction of harmful emissions from diesel engines. Emulsified biodiesel fuel provides an enviable reduction in carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter emissions with no need for modifications to old or newer diesel engine fuel systems."
