What is Quantum Tagging Technology?
Quantum Tagging Technology (QTT) is a novel method to identify and authenticate valuable documents and products. QTT employs quantum dots to generate highly secure and unique Quantum Tags that cannot be duplicated. These Quantum Tags can be read and decoded only by ultra sensitive Quantag sensors, real time at the point of use. With this method high security authentication can be achieved in a cost effective way.
Quantag’s Fuel Marker Quantru™ is used by OPET Petroloeum.
What is Fuel Marker?
Fuel Marker is a chemical marker used to authenticate fuels and other valuble liquid products. These markers, which are read with special sensors, can help to discern the origin of fuel used and prevent illegal activities that cause economic loss, especially smuggling.
In 2018 global size of global black market of oil estimated to be around 133 billion dollars. In Turkey, total tax revenue loss due to oil smuggling is estimated to be around 2,5 billion dollars.
Fuel markers are crucial in preventing this unregulated economy that cause serious political problems both in middle east and the world.
