Where CC sparkles.

Amazingly, CC is different from ethanol and biodiesel, which are—even with upcoming technologies—restricted to plant matter, i.e. sugar, starch, and vegetable oil.

This technology can in addition, utilize Anya organic matter, from waste oil to farm chaff to industrial refuse and household garbage, to food industry residue and slag, discarded computer carcasses, disaster clean up (including oil spills), and non-recyclable plastic (86% of all PET bottles end in landfills! Most of the rest is exported overseas).

Actually, in shipping, we can take bilge oil and return it as ultra-low sulfur diesel.

PileIn sourcing the necessary raw material, CC is not restricted by the arable land food chain arena, but can process waste material from a wide variety of supply industries, such as old tires and even including (though difficult) sewer sludge. One of our main objectives is the diversion of mounting trash hauls away from landfills.

The CC (catalytic conversion) process can even improve the yield from crude oil in conventional refineries by up to 20%, as it is able to convert residue like tar or bitumen into high-grade diesel fuel, such as in the Mexico facility.

The efficiency of CC diesel is substantially higher than that of other alternative fuel.

  • The volumetric yield, gallons per acre, for example, is double that of ethanol and up to five times that of biodiesel.
  • The energy yield per acre is four times that of ethanol and almost five times that of biodiesel (from canola).

Net Energy Balance

The "Net Energy Balance," i.e. the energy put in to produce one gallon of fuel, is 0.85 to 1.25 with ethanol, 3.2 with biodiesel and 7.0 to 8.0 (depending on feedstock) with CC. This means while ethanol gains a maximum of 25% and biodiesel 220% energy, CC gains 700 to 800%!

CC's production costs per diesel equivalent energy are 42% that of ethanol and 51% that of biodiesel, just with our smallest plant, the CC 500 (1.2 million gallons p.a.).

At our current production status, with the CC 2000 (4.8 million gallons p.a.), costs can be slashed to less than half. Larger facilities with a production capacity of 10 to 25 million gallons per year, which are under development, have even lower running costs.
