About Fuelcare

Fuelcare are a private British company that have been improving fuel storage & combustion for 30 years. We operate predominantly in the United Kingdom, Europe & the U.S., providing fuel preservative treatments, fuel testing services, consultancy, & fuel engineering services. 

"Our goal is to protect & improve fuel quality, irrespective of specification, industry or symptom."

Origins

Fuelcare has origins in first hand experiences of dealing with fuel & water quality issues during the 1960's, aboard merchant naval vessels crossing the Atlantic. The poor quality of bunkering fuels and subsequent consequences for the vessel were a significant drain on ship resources. Following the founding of a water treatment company in the 1970's researching & treating microbial contamination of water supplies, the area of contamination in fuel became increasingly important. Fuelcare was thus begun as a subsidiary focusing purely on fuel quality.

Fuelcare Today

Since our foundation in 1989, Fuelcare have grown significantly as fuel quality has deteriorated. Our premises now include a modern, dedicated headquarters in Shropshire, U.K., a stock point in the centre of Aberdeen port serving the North Sea Offshore industry, as well as a dedicated office in Austin, Texas serving the U.S. fuels market. Our staff are dedicated to fuel excellence, our facilities audited to the latest quality control systems and our laboratories performing fuels testing to the latest fuel test methods.

Fuelcare work in partnership with DuPont acting as a trusted distributor for their products in the energy industry. DuPont is the leading provider of biocide and antimicrobial technologies that control & prevent growth of nuisance and dangerous micro-organisms, as well as help preserve materials including fuel. Fuelcare’s near-20 year partnership with DuPont (formerly part of Dow and then Rohm & Haas) provides one solution to all microbial fuel protection needs from the world’s finest fuel scientists & engineers.
