Benzine In Unleaded
Gas Is A Killer
Geopathologist Issues Strong Warning
An attack on the use of unleaded petrol (ULP) has been launched by geopathologist, Peter Heindl, who also warns of the dangers of defective catalytic converters. Heindl, of the Institute of Geopathology of South Africa, describes lead-free petrol as a 'poison ejector'. He says that the ban of leaded petrol is not a progressive, environment-friendly initiative as many imagine it to be. He says that catalytic converters cannot withstand lead and high-powered engines cannot be operated with unleaded petrol (ULP) unless the petrol contains aromatics like benzine, which have to be added to the ULP. He says the European Union (EU) allows only 5% additive and the USA a maximum of only 1%, though investigations prove a presence of 19%. When one pumps 80 litres of ULP into a car's petrol tank, he claims that 5 kg of pure benzine enters the tank, forming the 'much-feared carcinogens', aromatic poly-nuclears (APN).
Heindl says the most commonly known APNs are benzopyrene, benzo-anthracene, cyren, phenantren and anthracen. He warns that even 1% benzine is too much, as it is highly poisonous. Benzine, he says, is absorbed by the human body through the inhaling of gases, but also through the skin and via the stomach and intestinal tract. A concentration will be found in the fatty tissue, bone marrow and central nervous system. Heindl claims that benzine can enter the blood and there convert into phenol (hydroxybenzene). Phenol is a carbolic acid and reacts highly acidic and works like a strong cell poison. Tiredness, weakness, insomnia, dizziness, nausea and palpitations can result. In advanced cases of bone marrow damage, mucus-membrane bleeding and nose tumours can develop, with a high risk of leukaemia.
Heindl quotes a chemist at the German environmental department as saying that all drivers should have to wear gas masks when filling up with ULP, advising that children and other passengers get out before the car enters the filling station, to ensure that they are not coming into contact with these damaging fumes during filling up with unleaded normal or premium petrol. He quotes Auto Bild as saying 960-Million litres of benzine (at a proportion of 3% in ULP) is flowing into German petrol tanks. The 'technical instruction for keeping the air clean' (TA-Luft) provided emission limits for benzine, but is seen by some experts as insufficient. He quotes 'official reports' that state that the average benzine content in large cities and in the blood of its citizens is five to ten times higher than in rural areas. He says the Neue Ärztliche medical journal warns people not to underestimate benzine emissions, stating that it has a leukaemia-generating effect and that a TV broadcast on the ZDF TV channel on May 20, 1989, stated that 1,000 persons die yearly from benzine vapours from petrol.
North-Rhine-Westphalia environmental affairs department, he says, has proclaimed benzine one of the most dangerous environmental poisons. Premium unleaded fuel, he claims, contains up to 4% methyl-tert-butyl-ether (MTBE) as an anti-knock agent. In Germany, where there are no speed restrictions on the highways, oils with good lubrication are needed. The anti-sludge agent zinc-dithio-phosphate is added, which reacts with MTBE, forming a highly poisonous combination. The EU environmental Ministers have agreed that future cars have to be equipped with catalytic converters. Heindl says cars using catalytic converters will use 20% more petrol on highways, 21% more on regional roads and 45% more in town traffic, because emitted exhaust gasses need more power to pass through the fine ducts of the honey-comb structure of the converter. He says the carcinogenic particles in diesel engine exhaust fumes, when compared to petrol engines, quickly neutralise as they bind with soot particles. Modern diesel engines even meet the strict US requirements. Engines have been made to run on plant-oil fuels because no technology can be above natural laws without damaging or destroying life.
These conditions are met by a pioneering German company, where technically sound 1- to 12-cylinder multi-fuel-diesel engines are suitable for running on plant-oil fuels with a duo-thermal combustion principle and a combustion area divided from the left-over air. Tests were done on 100 plant oils suitable for engine use and the molecular structure of these plant oils is ideal fuel for combustion as carbon dioxide, water, hydrocarbons, oxygen and plant nutrients are contained in a closed cycle.
The plant oils don't need special preparation to be used as fuel and refining chemical processes are not needed - filtered virgin oil can be used as it is pressed. One litre of plant oil contains 110g of hydrogen - 1.5 times more than clean liquid hydrogen. Hydrogen engines work with a 23% efficiency and plant oils raise efficiency to 40%. So, hydrogen technology is problematic, also having to be cooled down and kept at -253°C to be available in liquid form. Plant oils are free >from sulphur, heavy metals, benzol and aromatics. The sun's energy is enough to grow oil plants and an area the size of Saudi Arabia could supply an equivalent amount of oil as crude oil.
