BOLOGNA, ITALY--(Marketwire -06/13/12)- Great Wall Builders (GWBU) (or "the Company"), operating as "Start Technologies Europe s.r.o." ("Start Technologies"), is the exclusive manufacturer of a patent-pending fuel-conditioning technology that reduces fuel consumption and polluting emissions, while increasing vehicle mileage and engine horsepower.
The Company is pleased to announce today that Mercedes-Benz Italy begins to test Start Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Device (FEED) on four (4) Mercedes (manufactured 2012) vehicles.
The test will be conducted over the next weeks in Mercedes-Benz facilities located in Bologna and Roma, Italy.
The Start FEED units have been specifically designed to be applied to the Mercedes 6, 8 and 12-cylinder engine platforms within a 15 minute production line window. The company designed specific retro-fit Start FEED units that may be installed on the following Mercedes vehicles:
-- Mercedes SL 350 6-cylinder gasoline
-- Mercedes SL 500 8-cylinder gasoline
-- Mercedes CL 600 12-cylinder gasoline
-- Mercedes ML 320 6-cylinder diesel
Upon completion of the test, the results will be reviewed and submitted to Mercedes-Benz Italy for analysis prior to negotiate the terms and conditions for Start FEED unit applications.
"We are confident that Mercedes-Benz test will demonstrate an important emissions reduction and improvement of fuel economy with Start FEED application. Automotive manufactures, here in Europe, are always looking for innovative technology to meet and improve the emission standards and LEZ certifications required in the "European Union market'" stated Mr. Daniele Brazzi, President and CEO.
About The Start Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Device (FEED)
The Start Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Device (FEED) is a patent-pending, fuel-conditioning technology that reduces fuel consumption and polluting emissions, while increasing engine horsepower.
Start's patent-pending technology discharges a high-voltage electric current at a specified frequency and wavelength into fuel at ambient temperatures prior to its entry into the engine. Using proprietary patent-pending technology this high-voltage electric current breaks long-chain hydrocarbon molecules into shorter, lighter more volatile molecules.
This process is known as "cracking" in the petroleum refinery industry, where it is used to convert feedstock oil into gasoline, diesel and other products, including butanes, propane, propylene, ethane and methane.
When conventional gas and diesel fuels are reconditioned by the Start FEED unit, they become more flammable and burn more completely in the combustion chamber.
