Nano Labs Reports Octane Test Results For Nanotech Gasoline

Stocks in this article: CTLE

DETROIT, Sept. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Labs Corp. (OTCQB:CTLE) is pleased to report on OTI Canada Group's (OTI) laboratory reference number M13-840 according to ASTM test protocol of the Company's proprietary Nanotech Gasoline (NG).

As previously reported on September 23, 2013, the Nanotech Gasoline (NG) combines 60% commercial grade gasoline with 40% ordinary drinking water plus the Company's proprietary nanotechnology.

OTI reported the following key results for Octane Number Research (600rpm), Octane Number Motor (900rpm) and Octane Index:

ASTM TEST METHOD D2699 Octane Number Research: >100
ASTM TEST METHOD D2700  Octane Number Motor: 92.2 
ASTM TEST METHOD CALC  Octane Index: >96.1

"Just looking at the nano gas - it looks exactly like 100% gasoline. Considering that this is a gasoline-water emulsion, this is a major breakthrough," states Mr. Chiovitti, Petroleum Chemist consultant at Laboratory for OTI Group who conducted the tests. "If we examine each test of the nano gasoline and compare it to 'Super' gasoline, it is clear and obvious that it (NG) compares extremely well and is much better for the Octane Index. This is an extremely important point, because each one Octane Index upwards costs more money - just look at the pump price between 'Regular' and 'Super.' To raise the Octane, the refineries have to perform certain petroleum cuts, add aromatics, in some places MTBE, and now even Anhydrous Ethyl Alcohol (AEA). This gives you an idea of the value of your high Octane Index."  

Mr. Bernardo Camacho Chavarria, President of Nano Labs concludes:  "We will continue to run tests against commercial grade gasoline in the market today. The ultimate tests run real comparisons of both fuels side-by-side. Looking at the preliminary evidence, we are highly encouraged. For the refineries, this could be an excellent idea, economically speaking, to use the NG as an Octane Index Booster, blending naphtha with the nano base by simply using standard circulation pumps. This is another area we will begin testing immediately, starting with the basic low Octane Naphtha distillation cut and see how much we can raise the Octane Index. Again, it is important to note that we are at the development stage here, but if this works, the sky could be the limit. We are working with select partners now to continue testing and discussions for commercialization."
