Our mission is fast-tracking commercial projects, jump-starting the revolution in green energy and driving it past its tipping point.
We’re not passive investors. We will self-perform, own, and manage New Energy Biomass Refineries.™
Are we doing this for our health? Absolutely. And for our children’s and grandchildren’s. Because clean air and water ought to be an inalienable right, a human right.
For too long fossil fuels have monopolized the nation’s energy choices. Oil and coal are incontestably huge contributors to not only American politicians but to America’s air and water pollution. So it’s essential that Americans trim their fossil dependency. Which is why the federal government mandates it through the Clean Air Act and regulatory actions.
This isn’t just an energy and environmental revolution. It’s a revolution in agriculture. The farmers are the new patriots on the front line, revitalizing farm economics and rural communities as they grow their nation’s new energy crops. Primarily, the stalks and straw left over from the annual grain harvests of corn and wheat.
Every year in the U.S., these 130 million acres of straw and stalks could feed 500-600 biomass refineries, produce 16 billion gallons of cellulosic ethanol to replace gasoline, plus enough plant fiber (lignin) to generate about 27,000 MW of renewable, dependable electric power. And not just when the wind blows or the sun shines.
Used in place of gasoline, homegrown ethanol made from grain cuts greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) by 34%, toxics by 13%, carbon monoxide by 30%, and fine particulate matter (PM) by 50%.*
Making cellulosic ethanol from stalks and straw ramps up the environmental gains even more. The biomass refining process itself is carbon-neutral or even carbon-negative. Compare its cleaner and greener operation to an oil refinery, and the difference is day and night.
