Fuel For Thought

There is no energy crisis, only a crisis of ignorance."

2012: The Year Shift Happens

Evidence of fossil energy pollution might be over our heads, but it’s still everybody’s problem in need of a solution.

Ready for shift to hit the fan from all directions?

Warmer winters, hotter summers, more volatile weather, drought and retreating glaciers, etc. And rising energy prices to go along with rising emissions and sea levels. Ready for increasingly expensive change? Every product or service with an energy cost (what doesn’t?) will cost more.

Ready to be disappointed by elected leaders and big energy businesses who’d rather hold the nation back than propel it forward?

Government can scarcely put fingers in the dykes to hold back the flood of debt that threatens the foundation of our country, and some say, the global economy. So the government won’t be much help in the world of clean renewable energy, even though a lot of taxpayer money is being thrown at the problem. It’s a private sector opportunity, and the renewables that survive will be those that not only work as advertised, but which make their investors money.

Renewable energy is the energy that people produce from local resources, community-scale commitments, and astute business leadership.

America’s troubling economic issues and world environmental problems are tied directly to fossil energy use, emissions and supply – price volatility.  Our nation’s near total reliance on fossil energy. Yours, mine, everyone’s dependence, except the few fortunates who’ve cut fossil-fuel ties via solar, geothermal, wind, and biofuels.

But America isn’t really out of ways to change the game with renewables—especially when it comes to producing clean, renewable fuels. In fact, America hasn’t even begun to tap into the promise of true next-generation fuels such as Envirolene®!

Here’s the viable, profitable clean fuel replacement for gasoline, diesel and corn ethanol.  Here’s the fuel that rivals gasoline and diesel in power, and dominates ethanol or other single alcohols such as methanol or butanol. It’s the world’s strongest alcohol fuel. With huge price, volume, performance and emissions advantages. And this premium higher mixed alcohol fuel can be produced 24/7 in all 50 states from end of life carbons such as trash, biomass, sludge, etc. Or coal, methane and CO2.

How will higher mixed alcohol fuel work in the real world? Here’s a brief introductory article:

The world is stuck on oil and coal, and the domestic gasoline supply gets a splash of corn ethanol. Oil and coal are a devil’s bargain. And so is the fact that 39 percent of America’s corn crop is dedicated to producing ethanol fuel! We can do better.

Shift To Renewable Fuel Value

Would you like to be responsible for making sure there are better days ahead for our country and the environment? Join us in developing higher mixed alcohol fuel production from America’s abundant trash, non-crop biomass, coal, and fossil gases such as methane and CO2.  Let’s make lots of what America and the entire transportation world needs: clean liquid fuels.

Investment Community (Private, Institutional):

There are no bigger opportunities in clean energy than the race to fill the US Renewable Fuels Standard mandate of 36 billion gallons of clean fuels by 2022.  Are you backing the right renewable liquid energy technologies? How much do you really know about biofuels? Your support for higher mixed alcohol production is a solid bet on the future of green fuels. What’s more, investment in clean fuel creation keeps these dollars in circulation where it counts: your city.

Solid and Liquid Waste Management Companies:

Don’t overlook the missing backend solution for source reduction: In the abundant and very toxic solid and liquid wastes that America hauls daily to regional landfills or incinerators are the building blocks for a cleaner liquid energy product and a cleaner planet.  It is the stored energy in America’s liquid and solid wastes buried in the ground, or worse, burned to make electricity and more greenhouse gases.

Choices are few when it comes to what kinds of energy can be produced from wastes: electricity or liquid fuels. Will you produce oil-based fuels? Or will you produce a clean alcohol fuel that blends into all kinds of petroleum fuels and makes them combust more completely, lowering emissions?

Timber and Forestry:

Now more than ever , it doesn’t pay to be a logger.  Especially if you have past due loans for logging equipment and not enough work because of record low demand for dimensional lumber amid the ongoing national recession.   Where will this dismal outlook lead? Bankruptcy? Is there any opportunity left for loggers to salvage what’s left of their operations and start again? What market need can be met by today’s forestry industry?

Perhaps this day of reckoning will lead the forestry industry to look for a new measure of value from all types of wood and woody wastes. Beyond the board foot to the BTU, for example. Not merely from harvesting trees for dimensional lumber or wood chips, but also the needles, barks, branches, small diameter trees and slash that is traditionally piled and burned in place.  Or used for making small amounts of point-source electricity using a dirty biomass boiler.  That “hat trick” might make some electricity but it won’t make anyone’s equipment loan payments.

It’s time to find a use for wood and all other types of non-crop biomass that actually makes money consistently and creates jobs.  Our country needs clean alternative transportation fuels.  Our country is experiencing massive die off in western US and Canadian forests from beetles. There is clearly a need for the logging industry to pick up the pieces and reinvent itself.

Here’s a way forward that makes sense, and money.

Municipal, County, State, Federal Governments:

Governments across around the world are looking for new sources of revenue, and energy creation from municipal wastes and biomass is a good bet. Working with cities and towns, Bioroot Energy seeks to leverage what goes to waste in every town of any size, converting “end of life” carbons as cleanly, profitably and efficiently as possible into finished, market-ready fuel.  Made from woody biomass. Municipal waste. Sewer sludge.  As well as coal, methane and CO2. All of these waste and fossil carbon sources are ideal feedstocks to make lots of water soluble, biodegradable higher mixed alcohol fuel!

BE People Are Driving Change:

It’s never been more important for people on Main Street to create products the world can use. Like a clean fuel people can produce locally, sell all they can produce, create good-paying jobs, clean up solid and liquid wastes, and pay taxes on profits to local, state and federal government.

Imagine that. Main Street paying taxes on big profits from sales of a clean, renewable fuel made from trash?

This is the year shift happens. Let’s the rock the ship of state!
