ValvTect Petroleum president Jerry Nessenson announced that ValvTect received formal approval for the registration and sale of ValvTect BioGuard Plus 6 multifunctional biocide diesel additive from the Environmental Protection Agency and in all 50 states.

“Prior to the EPA’s approval of ValvTect BioGuard Plus 6, all biocides registered for use in ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel were single-function biocides designed to only kill or prevent bacteria,” Nessenson said in a statement. “Now boaters can use BioGuard Plus 6, a single-formula multifunctional biocide that also includes a stabilizer, corrosion inhibitor, moisture dispersant, detergent, cetane improver and lubricity improver, all in one convenient container.”

BioGuard Plus 6 is now available at West Marine and other marine supply dealers across the country.
