“Then the 2002 car zipped to Missoula on U.S. Highway 93 with a full tank, roughly one third of it E4. The driver – and another one who tested the car later – said the car felt like it had more punch with the new fuel.

At press time, the tank sat nearly half-full after 190 miles. The tank holds 13 gallons, and by rough calculations, the uptick in fuel economy was at least 20 percent.”

Keila Szpaller, Reporter
The Missoulian

“Bioroot Energy and partner Standard Alcohol Company of America aim to build a plant in western Montana that produces E4 – and revolutionize the way people think about energy, the environment and the economy.

“This is our chance to prove sustainability in our own backyards with resources that we have that nobody wants.”

Biomass gasification has some interest, but few takers yet

“The theory sounds great, but does the plan have legs?”

Bitterroot biofuel goal of partnership

“Mark Radosevich is a biologist and environmental technologist whose Colorado firm holds the patents to create alcohol-based fuel out of almost anything made from carbon – from coal to sewage to wood. On a recent sunny afternoon, he gamely stood in a parking lot in Darby and poured bright green Envirolene – his patented fuel – into an old Nissan Altima while waxing about its enhanced performance capabilities and clean burn.”
