High Performance Transportation Fuels & Biochemical Alcohols

The Problems

Rapid rise of CO2 and CH4 methane emissions is mirrored by ever increasing volumes of solid and liquid carbon wastes being dumped and incinerated worldwide.

Municipal landfills receive constant streams of solid and liquid carbon wastes. Decomposition of these wastes also generates massive volumes of methane, as well as other toxic compounds, i.e., leachate.

Conversion of forest-based biomass wastes to alcohol fuel can reduce fire risks, improve air quality, and provide a strong economic multiplier for rural economies that have historically focused on logging and timber.

This video documents the ingestion of plastic by zooplankton, which are small organisms that inhabit the upper layers of most bodies of water and indiscriminately consume microscopic organisms and micro-plastic present in their environment. Zooplankton in turn are consumed by larger aquatic organisms from clams to whales.
