The DCV Poverty Alleviation Program
An Alternative Solution to the Problems of Poverty,
Crime and Global Warming
After a very humble start by enterprising Filipino scientist Juan B. Mata, Jr. or simply "Jun" to his friends, he started research and development into organic fuel enhancers with plants he found to have specific properties that enable them to be mixed with petroleum products. This "Organic Solution" would turn out to be an innovation in fuel enhancement with incredible results. Named "Manna", it optimizes the fuel by acting as a "catalyst" before its ignition rather than becoming part of the fuel's burning or combustion process. In chemistry, a catalyst is a substance that is added in relatively small amounts to a reactant and in so doing, affects the outcome of the reaction to which the reactant is used although the catalyst is itself not consumed in the reaction. To further discover and understand the innovation technically, Mr. Mata was fortunate enough to coordinate and get the support of Engr. Dante C. Valencia, a Civil Engineer and an Environmentalist. They found out that the fuel is being refined further, in that the molecules are being cracked into smaller parts at a low temperature thereby maximizing the fuel resulting into lesser wastage or lesser carbon emission.
Through the better part of the last decade, the innovation eventually resulted into four different Manna catalysts, three for enhancing specific petroleum fuels and one for engine oil or motor oil. These are:
Manna Catalyst for Gasoline
Manna Catalyst for Diesel
Manna Bunker Fuel* Maximizer
Manna Catalyst for Motor Oil
*Bunker fuel is the fuel oil used to fire up furnaces and heating boilers like those used in industrial plants and oceangoing ships. It used to refer to the coal used by steamships of the 19th and early 20th centuries which were then-stored onshore in bunkers. The name later referred to the type of fuel oil (that replaced the bunker coal) used by later ships although these are normally stored onshore in steel tanks.
Encouraged by consistent successful and impressive results, Mr. Mata together with Engr. Valencia, also the copyright owner of the DCV Program designed to alleviate poverty and reduce/capture carbon dioxide naturally by planting million of trees through volunteerism, pursued all necessary means to gain government approval from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Department of Energy and secure a license to manufacture and market the Manna herbal catalyst. With common noble intentions to help save mother nature and mankind, Mr. Mata and Engr. Valencia, agreed to form a corporation for this purpose which is registered by the name Manna Hydro Bio-Energy Corporation.
The initial Manna production plant is located in Fairview, Quezon City, Metro-Manila with a new high-capacity plant being constructed in the Philippine countryside, specifically in Maria Clara, Diffun, Quirino Province, an eight-hour drive from the metropolis. An advantage with the new site is that all the plants and trees from which the ingredients of Manna are derived, grow abundantly in the area. As only leaves are the main ingredients of Manna, there will be no problem of supply for renewable raw materials even if demand greatly increases.
The Future of Manna
The same organic-based technology and philosophies that the company utilized to develop and produce Manna Fuel Catalyst will also be the basis of further research into alternative fuels and energy sources that will inevitably greatly lessen the dependence on fossil fuels, replacing these with more abundant, clean and renewable sources without the environmental damage and threats to health.
