Fuel For Thought

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

- Buckminister Fuller

Somebody needed to do something, and it was incredibly pathetic that it had to be us.

- Jerry Garcia

We are confronted with insurmountable opportunities.

- Walt Kelly

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.

The Opportunities

There is no clear leader in the race to fill the gap beyond ethanol. But there will be.

Higher mixed alcohol fuel powers all engines.

Where will a great many American jobs and businesses be created in the next ten years? In the sector that brings new value to the table: green liquid energy. Alternative energy companies such as Bioroot Energy will hire business development experts and engineers, contractors and construction workers to build commercial-scale facilities, and plant managers and wage workers, accountants, etc. Higher mixed alcohol fuel production facilities stimulate  job and business creation in the securing, gathering, transport and processing of feedstocks, as well as distribution and sales of fuel and further expansion of the business through new projects.

America’s biomass and trash streams can be processed into liquid energy products that have substantial market value, especially when this value is created and facility ownership retained at a local and regional level. For example, a city of 100,000 residents probably generates adequate municipal waste and woody biomass to make a liquid fuels project both feasible and economically desirable, at least from a technical and environmental perspective.  The rest of the success equation is up to the stakeholders of the individual project.

We believe public and industry acceptance of higher mixed alcohol fuel will soar as people discover its many benefits and broad market applications.  Beyond the fuel itself, even the minimal byproducts of gasification (slag, vitrified glass, etc.) have value in the abrasives, construction and road building industry.  There’s also a significant waste heat footprint that has value for making electricity, steam, or heating a permaculture facility that grows organic vegetables year ’round.

Building The Carbon Bridge

Nothing to drill or mine for, nor any crops to grow.

Instead of cultivating crops, we’ll use all types of carbon wastes to create higher mixed alcohol fuel. Today’s household trash contains a rich assortment of petroleum-derived material to go along with the woody biomass that enters the waste stream where you live. Tires, old shoes, paper, milk jugs, etc. Most of this material isn’t recycled. And to make matters worse, some of what we throw away finds its way into the oceans where trash is concentrated by ocean currents into garbage patches that are twice the size of Texas!

Yet, in the face of these vexing environmental problems, there’s a green liquid energy opportunity so big that we need to educate ourselves to fully understand it and support it locally.

Bioroot Energy seeks to improve the waste management status quo, which currently is either landfilling or incinerating municipal wastes, sludges, toxic wastes, and biomass. We seek a new waste handling paradigm: using proven gasification systems and gas-to-liquid fuel technologies to produce higher mixed alcohol fuel and build sustainable, responsible clean fuel projects wherever you live.

Recycling what is recyclable is of course a good idea. If certain types of plastics and cardboard are more valuable if recycled, they should be recycled. But no matter how much recycling takes place, there will always be significant solid and liquid wastes wherever man lives and works. No longer is it in society’s best interests to ignore the solid, liquid and gaseous wastes it creates by hauling it and burying or burning it. The compelling benefits of using wastes and woody biomass, as well as coal, methane and even C02, to profitably produce clean, green, sustainable liquid fuel are abundantly clear.
