RODI Power Systems, Abbeville, La., recently announced the formation of Molectrol Inc. as a wholly owned subsidiary to develop and market the company's advanced-technology fuel injectors.

“Developing our fuel injectors independently of RODI's emphasis allows our Molectrol staff to focus on injector development and production in 2001,” explained Byron Spain, RODI founder and CEO.
Molectrol's solid-state, high-pressure fuel injectors were developed within the past year and have been in rigorous testing since March. The design is expected to offer engine operators increased fuel economy and lower emissions than currently available mechanically actuated solenoid-type fuel injectors.
Molectrol will be headquartered at a new facility in Puyallup, Wash.
