The Jomini Transportation/Power Generation

Roadmap and Solutions

This link provides the strategic view of the solutions that Jomini has and continues to provide to the transportation sector and the power generation market.  These Jomini Roadmaps provide solutions that we have assisted in commercializing, and that are available today for fleet operators and the energy generation sector.  Each provides carbon offsets/credits for the users of the solution.

The top line represents the business as usual, (“BAU”), with the Jomini solutions and their benefits seen in the second line.  The key is the where the solutions fit:  The MotorSilk® Engine Treatment can be deployed for any engine operating with oil; the MotorSilk Diesel Fuel Additive® is key to providing lubricity and clean injectors/fuel system and prevention of micro-bacteria growth in biofuels; and the use of the low carbon gases generated from numerous waste streams provides the market with the ultimate in emission reductions with a clean fuel.

SGS Letter of Recommendation


This organization, SGS S.A., is the world’s leading testing, inspection, and certification company.  The office in Singapore tested the efficacy of the MotorSilk® Engine Treatment and the MotorSilk Diesel Fuel Additive® and their compatibility with engine fuels and oils.  This analysis was focused on large 2 and 4 stroke engines, with a focus on the marine industry, and the resulting benefits.  This year-and-a-half study and testing process included a review of other internationally published reports, mimicked the testing, and as a result, led to the attached Letter of Recommendation.  This document noted the benefits for all engine types making use of the core technology.

The Jomini Transportation and Power Generation Book

This Reference Book includes detailed technical descriptions of technologies that Jomini has introduced to the transportation and power generation marketplace.  Originally focused on friction reduction for car-part production, engine performance improvements due to the near elimination of friction led to the development of solutions that extend the life of oil and prevents engine component wear, and provides lubricity; a diesel fuel additive that clean the fuel system and prevent injector coking for continued and improved performance, and prevents corrosion and micro-bacteria growth in fuel in storage; and grease solutions that decrease the frequency of application by a factor four.

The next step in engine performance is the use of low-carbon gases, including renewable natural gas (“RNG”) as a drop-in solution, or Hydrogen as a fuel.  The text describes this next step in engine performance making use of the recently patented Hydrogen Reduction Technology (“HRT”) that provides the best means to meet newly implemented environmental objectives.

These solutions all conform to the robust internally recognized methodologies within ISO 14064, meaning that each will provide carbon offsets/credits and emissions reductions compared to the BAU, and can be used to support environmental social and governance (“ESG”) requirements/ initiatives, government reporting (Scope 1, and 2), Securities Exchange Commission filings, and shareholder, client, and customer requirements to decrease carbon in operations and supply chains.  This is also described in the text.

In summary, each solution delivers operational with greater asset availability and better use of maintenance resources, economic benefits including decreased fuel costs, decreased oil costs from extension of oil life, decreased maintenance costs regarding wear on parts and the need for replacement, environmental returns (marketing, reporting and financial) resulting from quantified emission reductions, and in the case of HRT, a potential revenue generation through tipping fees from the acceptance of waste.

Boron CLS Bond® Technology

The Jomini Transportation/Power Generation Book is the complete guide of the use of the core Boron CLS Bond® technology solutions that have been deployed in the rubber and steel wheeled fleets (including mobile cranes, trucks, locomotives), marine industry and stationary generators.  Recent deployments include Class One Railways, transit agencies in North America, large trucking fleets, waste management companies, power generators, yellow-iron construction vehicles and intermodal operations including shunt truck and mobile cranes.  Demonstrable financial and environmental returns are shown.  

This text provides a technical description of the technology and the numerous benefits that arise form the core technology.  The Boron Chrystal Lattice Structure (CLS) Bond technology was the result of research at the US DOE Argonne National Laboratory, originally sponsored by NASA.  The resulting solutions were developed for the market by Jomini, as the core technology creates a boundary layer, Rockwell 85, that creates a perfectly smooth surface with a co-efficient of friction of O.O1.  Impervious to contaminants, the surfaces are cleaned and remain in that situation allowing for better performance.  Base lubricants are protected, and lubricity is improved. In fuel, as a natural biostat, it protects fuel in storage, improves cetane and provides cleanliness in the injectors for better spray while providing lost lubricity in ULSD and bio/renewable fuels.

This tome includes test data, deployment plans and the process for the generation of carbon offsets/credits.  Analysis for specific markets can also be found in the text.

Performance Summary- Highlights from Deployments

MotorSilk® Engine Treatment Fuel Efficiency improvements:

Locomotive in-service demonstrating a 4.3% with approximately 100 t CO2e reduction per annum per locomotive on the transit sector;

Locomotive deployment with Class One, yard locomotives provided a 5.1% improvement in fuel economy;

Over the road internal audit savings for Canada’s largest retailer fleet of 5.53% improvement in fuel economy, translating to an annual NET savings of over $3,600 CDN per vehicle and a 531% Return on Investment (“ROI”), each year over a five-year period (2012-2016);

Waste management fleet of heavy equipment and ‘yellow iron’ equipment has shown over 5% improvement in fuel economy year over year;

Dynamometer testing by third parties at Toromont Caterpillar showed a 6.7%   improvement in a Class 8 truck engine (2012) and 8.01% improvement in a newly rebuilt C-27 1,100hp engine, (2017) in fuel economy respectively; and

Intermodal operations demonstrated cranes and shunt truck fuel savings of 7%;

MotorSilk® Diesel Fuel Additive (DFA®) fuel efficiency improvements:

Locomotives in the transit sector demonstrated a year-over-year improvement of 7.8%;

Locomotive load-box testing demonstrated a 5.52% improvement in fuel efficiency (CN) in two GM EMD 2000hp after 1,000-hour deployment assessment in field operations;

Combined Use: MotorSilk® Engine Treatment and DFA®:

Locomotives showed a 9.8% improvement in fuel economy;

Jomini also showed the following results:

LubriSilk® Greases (NGLI 00,0,1,2,3)

Use of these greases in the yard allowed for an extension in the frequency of application by a factor of four (4) for mobile cranes, and a factor eight (8) in overhead cranes and shunt trucks (auto-greasers);

The Next Step: Hydrogen Reduction Technology

Also included is an introduction to the newly patented Hydrogen Reduction Technology that allows for the input of hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams, organic materials including municipal solid waste, journal oil, sewage sludge, plastics, automotive shredder residue, woody biomass etc., an output of pipeline quality renewable natural gas (“RNG”) that can also be used to support engine performance, or Hydrogen, with no atmospheric emissions.  This is the seconds generation of a technology that was used to destroy coal-tar, PCBs, and chemical weapons in the past.  The EPA recorded the output as hydrogen and RNG; this report can also be found in the text.
