Environmental Protection

MX Compound  
One of the most significant scientific accomplishments directed by the principal of Arbokem was the discovery of
3-chloro-4-dichloromethyl-5-hydroxy-2(5H)-furanone
(now known commonly as "MX" in the scientific literature).

MX Compound
In the twenty years since this discovery, scientists throughout the World have found this compound to be ubiquitous in the chlorination
of water for potable uses.

"MX" is one of the most potent mutagenic chemical substances known to mankind.

Bioenergy

BioenergyWe have been working on alternative bioenergy technologies, including bio-cetane enhancer for diesel fuel.

Arbokem's bio-cetane enhancer for diesel fuel is derived from
co-products of the wood pulp industry. This is a practical means to produce fuel for transportation.

Bio-cetane diesel fuel provides substantially lower emissions of conventional pollutants and greenhouse gases.
