HistoryBycosin was founded in 1947 when there was a demand for anything that might help burn the fuel that was available to industry after World War II. Bycosin solves that problem by creating an oil soluble iron that allowed the fuel to burn more completely without adding harmful ingredients to the atmosphere.

Bycosin now manufactures fuel treatments for all types of undustrial applications from utilities to the marine industry.

The picture shows the founder of the company, Sven Byström, and his son Håkan standing in front of the first factory building around 1953.

Håkan became president in 1966 and while the company is still located on the same site, it now has grown tremendously.

In 2001 Bycosin was acquired by Octel Corporation. In 2004 Bycosin was spun off from Octel and is now an independent company.
