ROCKLEDGE, FL – August 15, 2016 – Mainstream Engineering Corporation, a 30-year-old Brevard County manufacturer with a history of leading-edge research and development has been awarded a contract from the Air Force to develop a complete system to recover contaminated fuel.
Fuel that has been compromised as a result of attack, equipment failure, or accident can contain any number of contaminants including moisture, dirt, soot and fire suppression foams. Mainstream has developed an innovative emulsion-breaking approach that can separate the fuel from the firefighting foams as well supporting equipment to further purify and recover the fuel for reuse.
