The origin of the nitiFilter: our history

The nitiFilter is an innovative product that allows us to change our consumption patters by eliminating the need for oil changes. Just like any other innovative product, there’s a story behind its creation. That is the story we’d like to tell you today.

Everything began in 2007, when Rémy Mangano, an engineer working in the marine sector, realized how much waste resulted from traditional automotive oil filters and what a significant impact this waste was having on the environment. As a specialist in self-cleaning filters for ships, he decided to make the most of this 40-year-old proven technology and developed a new engine oil filtration system that could be adapted to any vehicle. This system would be permanent and self-cleaning, and would be compatible with engines producing between 50 and 800 horsepower. A patent for nitiFilter was filed, and the Xtreme Filtration company was born.

Since that time, XFP has positioned itself as a French leader in clean automotive filters with more than 300 installations carried out for clients such as Véolia Propreté and the Paris Bateau-Mouche tourist boats. This was no easy task, given the power of the manufacturers and mechanics who control the market. And yet, the evidence is clear: it works! Furthermore, according to several studies*, improved fuel economy is another positive secondary effect. This goes to prove that you can drive green and still pay less.

Located in the Poissy Technoparc in the Ile de France region, and surrounded by other innovative companies, XFP has stayed close to its values by having its products manufactured and assembled in France.

With eight years of experience already under its belt, the team grew bigger in 2015 to give new energy to this cutting edge product, especially with the COP21 climate conference, where clean technology companies are invited to participate and change our consumption patterns in concrete and immediate ways.
