Naf – Tech News
Naf-Tech Energy invited by the Nanotechnology Public Engagement Programme (NPEP) to speak at its 1st ever Nanotechnology and Energy Symposium held on 26 October 2017.
The Nanotechnology Public Engagement Programme (NPEP) is an initiative funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and implemented by the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA), a business unit of the National Research Foundation (NRF). The programme was born of the government’s National Nanotechnology Strategy (NNS). Launched in early 2008, the main objective of the NPEP is to enable effective dissemination of information targeted at enhancing the public’s knowledge and understanding of nanotechnology and also creates a ‘climate’ that is favorable for public knowledge and education to enable informed decision making on nanotechnology innovations so as to improve the quality of life. NPEP further assists in the translation of academic research in nanotechnology for the consumption of the public, industry and the policy makers and therefore being a service to these diverse groups of stakeholders.
As a result of Naf-Tech Energy’s breakthrough innovation in the field of nano fuel technology we were invited to enlighten the symposium around the development and implementation of this technology in the market.
We thank Dr. Jan Reynhardt, Jan van Ravenswaay and Frans van Ravenswaay from Raventech Engineers that presented an over view of the multi-year study conducted in conjunction with The North-West University detailing the benefit of Naf-Tech Energy’s application in the market. Special thanks to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and its funding of the Hydrocarbon-based fuel research and development project through the Technology and Human Research for Industry Programme (THRIP) to assist the research collaboration of Raventech and the North-West University (NWU).

We also thank Marianne Smith from Nanochem for presenting on the successfully completed R & D project detailing the efficiency of our product (nano-fuel technology) over a 21-month period. The project included many industry role players (Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project – The Siyavaya High Way Construction Joint Venture) and was registered with the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and a scientific paper was submitted for peer review. On this basis approval was granted for a tax rebate in terms of section 11(D) of the Income Tax Act. For its efforts Nanochems’ implementation of Naf-Tech Energy on the project was mentioned in the 2013 SA Innovation Summit Journal – Ground breaking work by any standard.

Naf-Tech Energy is proud to collaborate with Mammoth.
Naf-Tech Energy develops a bespoke bulk fuel treatment. Introducing NTC Quattro!
After consulting with our clients in the bulk fuel industry it became clear that a massive need exists for bespoke additives to address issues associated with their core business – ensuring the highest possible fuel quality to their clients. The additives that are available to address some of these issues are typically imported, expensive, not client specific and usually have long lead times when ordering. Fluctuations in currencies also make it difficult to price the cost of the additive over time in a market where margins are slim to begin with.
NTC Quattro was the first product born out of this process. For more information on how we can assist in ensuring fuel quality from transportation, storage to the end user and further product developments contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
