Environmentally and Economically Friendly Energy Manufacturing
Permeate Refining, in cooperation with our investment partners, own and help operate the following facilities that create the fuels of tomorrow using the waste from yesterday.
In cooperation with a federal research program, we upgraded a two million gallon ethanol facility into a modular five million gallon fuel production plant (5 MGPY). While “five million gallons” of any fuel may not seem like much, we see it differently. It is not how much you produce, but how much you make on what you produce. Despite past difficulties with conversions and oversight, we are remaking this plant into a state-of-the-art facility which investors will be glad to be part of.
From 1989 to 2013 the ethanol plant forged new ground by transforming sugar and cellulosic waste it into fuels and fuel byproducts. We learned how to efficiently convert the fuel stillage into fertilizer, animal feed and biogas. We also learned which convertible waste feedstock should be avoided for fuel processing. While not everything went according to plan, we learned a mighty bunch from trying. Because we kept at it, we now have an opportunity to change the face of fuel production. Our sister production facility in California has shown equal success worldwide in modular fuel design and conversions, and we aim to emulate this success.
Our current set-up allows us to process over one hundred million pounds sugar and cellulosic waste into fuel, feed and other byproducts. We are upgrading this process with a new and improved method that will again break new ground in fuel processing standards. We expect to set a new standard in throughput and quality
We are under strict non-disclosure guidelines and cannot release additional information regarding this process at this time. Please contact shareholder services for more information regarding the conversion program.
In cooperation with a federal research program, from 2009 through 2013 a unique method of growing, and processing algae was developed. This process was first tested in South Carolina.
We graduated beyond this initial development and prepared another step forward. Because of the importance of this effort, we remain under strict non-disclosure requirements with the process developers.
Working in conjunction with our modular fuel production plant above, once operational, the algae production facility will showcase a state-of-the-art process which the competition will be pressed to duplicate. Some of the benefits of algae include:
•Algae biofuel produces no sulfur, is non-toxic, and is highly biodegradable
•The strain we will be using is high in protein
•Once oil and protein is extracted, the remaining cake can be used as feed
•Our growing process requires limited solar inputs
•We can grow a lot of it for a good profit
