Recently the EPA issued its new challenging E10 Tier 3 Emission Certification Fuel specifications. Many Haltermann customers have been asking about the availability of this fuel.
Haltermann is now pleased to announce that EPA Tier 3 EEE Emission Certification Fuel, General Testing – Regular is now AVAILABLE and INVENTORIED in bulk quantities. Drum quantities will be in inventory the week of October 20, 2014.
The journey from laboratory / development to scale-up /commercialization of this fuel has been technically and analytically challenging but is now complete.
The scale-up process was completed with an overriding goal to assure that the formulations and manufacturing technique developed would make certain that the product could be made reliably with batch-to-batch repeatability. Haltermann has demonstrated this capability for years with its Tier II EEE Federal Emission Certification Fuel product family.
Now that the scale-up process is complete, the fuel will no longer have the TR2002 designation and instead will be sold by the commercial designation HF2021.
Slightly longer than normal lead-times for bulk quantities might be experienced until 4Q2014 when additional assets will be installed to assure a continuous supply of product.
Completion of the scale-up process translates to the fuel being manufactured in large batches for inventory, hence, the price has been reduced reflecting large batch economics as Haltermann now does with its Tier II EEE product.
Contact your Haltermann account manager or customer service representative for drum and bulk pricing as well as lead time.
Finally, commercialization efforts are already underway for the remaining fuel surrogates of the EPA specification including: General Testing – Premium, Low Temp Testing – Regular, Low Temp Testing – Premium and High Altitude Testing – Regular.

Haltermann appreciates the extraordinary patience its customers exhibited during this process which allowed establishment of the robust manufacturing process needed to assure continuity of supply and batch-to-batch repeatability of this important industry fuel.
