International Fuel Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: IFUE) offers fuel additive product formulations that use fuel enhancing technology to improve the combustion characteristics of petroleum-based fuels and renewable liquid fuels. Its products include DiesoLIFT range of products for diesel fuel and engines; GasoLIFT range of products designed for gasoline motor fuel and engines; and KeroLIFT that is formulated to bring added benefits to heating oils, kerosene fuel systems, and oil burners for oil-fired equipment applications. The company was founded in 1996 and is based in St. Louis, Missouri.

International Fuel Technology, Inc. (IFT), is a United States corporation headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, that has developed and tested a multi-functional additive technology that is proven to enhance the combustion efficiency of liquid hydrocarbon fuels, in addition to delivering a series of other important benefits without requiring reconfiguration of the engine or refining infrastructure.

Scope of Applications
Our products have been tested worldwide in automobile, truck, power generation, rail engines, and a number of other fuel-burning applications.

Global Reach
IFT currently has representative offices and commercial users in North America, Europe, and Asia, with distribution capabilities extending to Africa, South America, and mainland Australia.

Manufacturing Capabilities
Our products are manufactured and blended in ISO 9002 and ISO 14001-certified plants in the United States owned by Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (www.airproducts.com). Our high-volume production capacity enables IFT to meet any level of market demand.

Development of the TechnologyIn 2000, our team of scientists from the United States and  United Kingdom engineered and tested a revolutionary surfactant approach to improving fuel combustion efficiency and related fuel performance characteristics. In 2002, the original formula had its first successful test in a truck engine. Our scientists then re-engineered the formula to deliver optimum benefit and applied the same surfactant-based concept to formulate various blends for use in a broad array of applications (DiesoLiFT™, GasoLiFT™, and KeroLiFT™ product lines). These additive formulas were proven effective through testing in over-the-road transportation, rail, marine transportation, and stationary power generation.

In recent years, IFT has used a great deal of its resources to confirm the efficacy of its additive products at some of the world's most renowned independent test facilities. After incredibly successful testing at these certified test facilities, we have made our products commercially available on a global scale.

Commercialization Efforts
As a result of success in various commercial applications and independent laboratory testing, IFT filed for patent protection on its formulations and is now focused on rapid commercial development, targeting high-volume fuel consumers in the road transportation, rail, power generation, and marine transportation industries. With a global sales and support staff, a world-class team of technical experts, and well-rounded executive leadership, IFT is poised to become a global leader in the development of fuel additive products.
