Amber 363 is Amber Resources’ proprietary low NOX (nitrogen) emissions diesel fuel, and is considered the Best Available Control Technology by the South Coast Air Quality Management District as a liquid fuel for use in back-up generators and boilers.
Amber 363 meets ASTM D975 specifications while offering greater microbial resistance, lower oxidation, lower affinity for water and longer shelf life than standard diesel fuel. Amber 363 is an outstanding single source fuel for multiple equipment types (e.g., generators and boilers) and long-term storage.
1990, Congress adopted the Clean Air Act Amendments, and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was given the task of coordinating the efforts to reduce ozone-generating airborne pollutants. Southern California–in particular the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD)–took a lead in pollutant reduction, and was one of the first to have its plan approved by the EPA. The extent to which the ultimate Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) levels and Lowest Achievable Emission Rating (LAER) levels will reflect the emission limits set by SCAQMD Regulation 1146 for other areas of the United States is uncertain.
AMBER® 363-II FUEL was originally developed as a stand-by fuel with the emission requirements of SCAQMD Regulation 1146 in mind. Depending on the specific boiler/burner configuration, NOx emissions in the range of 10-30 ppm can be achieved. The EPA mandated that all non-attainment states must submit a detailed plan for controlling emissions. The NOx RACT levels for most non-attainment areas are presently less stringent than those specified under SCAQMD Regulation 1146.
Typical Property Comparison Between Amber 363-II & #2 Diesel
|AMBER 363-II||#2 DIESEL|
|Heating Value, Btu/lb||20,173||19,000|
|Heating Value, Btu/gal||133,500||138.500|
|API Gravity @ 60 °F||46.4||37|
|Ash Content, wt %||<0.001||<0.001|
|Pour Point °F||-15||20|
The comparison with methanol and propane initially shows the significant differences between these fuels and AMBER® 363-II FUEL. Both methanol and propane are much lower in heat input per gallon and also lead to lower boiler efficiency. They are both flammable and may require above ground storage tanks. Propane is explosive while methanol is toxic and corrosive to equipment. Neither of the fuels can be directly used in existing diesel generators due to their need for spark ignition. Even after the appropriate conversion, methanol requires a significant warm-up time in the generator before full power is reached. The main benefit of both methanol and propane, relative to AMBER® 363-II FUEL, is that they have lower unit fuel prices, although this is likely to be offset by other factors in most applications.
In comparison with natural gas, the NOx emissions of AMBER® 363-II FUEL are usually very similar. This means that, in any given situation, the stand-by fuel will allow emission levels to be maintained when the primary fuel is interrupted. In addition, when natural gas is being used in co-firing situations, switching to the stand-by fuel will not require equipment adjustments or blend ratio revisions for emission levels to remain unaltered.
