About the company

Enlighten Innovations is dedicated to upgrading heavy oil fuel. It uses patented, proprietary technology to remove sulphur and heavy metals from heavy oil, used widely by large marine freight vessels. In 2020, new international regulations will prohibit the use of fuels that emit sulphur when burned. This technology is a cost effective way to “clean” heavy oil fuel and allow large marine freight vessels to continue using their current engines.
