Disruptive technology makes possible to process all organic biomass into ethanol fuel.
LOS GATOS, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ — E-Fuel is pleased to announce its latest innovation, the E-Fuel MicroFusion Reactor, a disruptive technology which empowers users to process all forms of cellulosic waste into sugar water, the key ingredient for ethanol fuel. The E-Fuel MicroFusion Reactor makes available the virtually limitless supply of cellulosic waste materials as a suitable, renewable candidate for ethanol fuel production. Annually in the United States alone almost 1 billion tons of organic waste material is available for processing by the MicroFusion Reactor into 100 billion gallons of fuel at little or no cost. Converting this waste into fuel reduces the burden on landfills where most waste is currently destined and the detrimental effects on the environment.
The MicroFusion Reactor operates as a continuous process. Every 2 minutes the cellulosic material in the reactor chamber is completely processed and ready for fuel processing. The method of wood hydrolysis dissolves any wood or other cellulosic agricultural material in a manner that is residue free. Waste output is completely eliminated. The waste output is comprised of: (1) sugar water and (2) lignin powder. The sugar water is fermented by the MicroFueler into ethanol. The lignin is a valuable substance used in the pharmaceutical industry as an ingredient in various cancer fighting drugs among other things. The reactor eliminates the costs and complexities associated with commercial gasification, aerobic digester, enzyme and acid pre-processing of cellulosic material typically used in traditional ethanol fermentation processes. According to Tom Quinn (E-Fuel CEO), “The MicroFusion Reactor is a major breakthrough in the world’s quest to rid itself from fossil fuels. What used to take the commercial industry days to accomplish can now be accomplished in minutes safely by ordinary consumers”.
With the E-Fuel MicroFusion Reactor, ethanol production costs can be as low as $0.56/gallon when combined with the energy saving effects of the MicroFueler and GridBuster™, the world’s first wet ethanol powered generator developed by E-Fuel with a revolutionary heat recovery feature.
Markets for the E-Fuel MicroFusion Reactor include home users, commercial garbage disposal sites, country clubs, educational institutions, correctional facilities, and wherever significant cellulosic waste accumulates. Public demonstration of the MicroFusion Reactor is planned for 90-days after closing of E-Fuel’s Series A financing round currently in the final stages.
