► Jankel signs partnerships with two UK SMEs, Atmos-clear and FuelActive to help increase Defence Sustainability
21 September 2022 – Jankel, a world-leader in the design and manufacture of high-specification defence, security and NGO protection systems, has announced partnerships with two UK technology companies, Atmos-clear and FuelActive. The partnerships form part of the Jankel Advanced Technology strategy to increase sustainability, reduce carbon emissions, increase efficiency and help to protect the environment. The announcement coincides with the DVD 2022 exhibition at Millbrook, where Jankel are showcasing a range of innovative partnerships, including these ones plus, some exciting examples of Electric Vehicle (EV) technology.
In line with and to support the UK MoD Climate Change and HYPERLINK “https://rusi.org/explore-our-research/publications/commentary/greening-defence-uk-armed-forces-strategic-approach-climate-change”Sustainability HYPERLINK “https://rusi.org/explore-our-research/publications/commentary/greening-defence-uk-armed-forces-strategic-approach-climate-change”Strategic Approach, the announcement of these two new collaborative agreements expands the existing Jankel Advanced Technologies portfolio and represents Jankel’s move to leverage the best of UK innovation to address the critical issues of fuel economy and defence sustainability. Jankel’s other recently announced technology partnerships include BodyTrak and Williams Advanced Engineering (both announced in late 2021). These partnerships demonstrate Jankel’s commitment to remaining at the forefront of emerging technologies, delivering solutions that bring added value capability enhancements to new and existing customers, whilst promoting UK export.
The Atmos-clear EXO devices significantly reduce fuel particulates and emissions when fitted to any existing fossil fuelled engine. The Exo 1 and the Exo 3 solutions allow fuel to burn hotter and cleaner. The two major benefits of this are a drastic reduction in harmful emissions and an increase in fuel economy. Jankel and Atmos-clear are bringing this new technology to defence and security fleets globally and will jointly support the product, once in service.
FuelActive provides defence with a fit-and-forget solution to protect engines from fuel contamination while improving fuel economy. The FuelActive solution uses an innovative design to prevent contaminants entering the vehicle’s engine. This increases fuel economy and dramatically improves engine in-service time, especially in areas with low grade or dirty fuel such as overseas operational deployments. Jankel and FuelActive will bring this new technology to defence and security fleets globally.
Jacob Jankel, Technology Lead at Jankel Group said: “British Innovation and the use of advanced technologies have been at the heart of our business since it was formed by my Grandfather Robert Jankel in 1955. It’s great to form these new partnerships with Atmos-clear and FuelActive as a continuation of that British legacy”. He added: “In addition to our continuous innovation across our own product and service lines, Jankel are also committed to the establishment of successful collaborations and partnerships to integrate the best technologies available into our products whilst using our relationships and export routes to develop new opportunities.”
