Synthetic Fuel Distribution
Research Project


Alternative Energy
Many novel approaches to alternative energy have been explored over the past few decades, some approaches were limited by technology and others limited by economics. With the realization the potential of gasoline at a price range of over $ 5.00/gallon across America, a fresh look at many of these alternative approaches have been revived.

Dehydrated Hydrocarbon Concentrate
In the energy from waste field, the production of de-hydrated hydrocarbon materials has in general, historically not been considered viable. The controlled production of a highly concentrated, dry, solid (crystalline powder) hydrocarbon material that is water soluble and that may be selectively re-hydrated into grades of synthetic fuel equivalent to Gasoline, diesel fuel or furnace oil, may be desirable in todays market.

Research Project
The scope of the research project is to explore the viability and develop a business strategy for the establishment of a distribution channel for dehydrated hydrocarbon materials utilized in the production of synthetic fuels.

Proposed Distribution Method
The proposed distribution approach is to provide a dehydration unit which contains a rechargeable fuel cartridge. The cartridges could be marketed in size ranges that could produce from 100 to 500 gallons of synthetic fuel. If the rechargeable cartridge sizes (weight) are kept in the 10 to 30 lbs range, existing logistic networks may be utilized.
Energy Independence
The adoption of the use of dehydrated hydrocarbon concentrates creates the potential for true energy independence, not only as a nation but energy independence as an individual.

Disruptive Technology
The use of highly concentrated inert solids that may be re-hydrated on site changes the legacy infrastructure in the refining, transportation and storage of tractional liquid hydrocarbon fuels (gasoline, diesel fuel, furnace oil, etc.).
The ripple effects of the introduction of a highly disruptive technology are unknown.
