The Higher Mixed Alcohol Solution

Higher Mixed Alcohol production converts solid and liquid wastes, biomass and fossil carbons into finished, market-ready fuel via two clean, closed-loop methods:

Gasification of Solid and Liquid Wastes, Biomass, Coal, Petroleum Coke

Gasification is a thermal conversion process that cleanly converts carbonaceous materials into carbon monoxide and hydrogen by reacting raw material (feedstocks) at high temperature with a controlled amount of oxygen and/or steam. The resulting syngas then feeds a fixed-bed GTL (gas-to-liquid) reactor with a “secret sauce” catalyst to produce clean, biodegradable, water-soluble, higher mixed alcohol fuel.

Note: Gasification is not Incineration.

Steam Reformation of Natural Gas (Methane) and CO2

Steam Reformation converts any form of methane/natgas or methane and CO2 through cleaning and separation into carbon monoxide and hydrogen syngas. Impurities and compounds such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) are recycled or separated off in the reformation process. The syngas is then processed through the fixed-bed GTL reactor to produce clean, biodegradable, water-soluble fuel.

Note: Conversion of methane/natgas and CO2 is the most simplest and most profitable method for producing this market-ready fuel. Gasification of solid and liquid carbon feedstocks presents the broadest range of feedstocks and siting vectors, as well as tax incentives for use of renewable feedstocks.
