Alcohol fuels produced from trash? It's not rocket science.  

Our company's mission is to utilize all types of carbon resources to produce Higher Mixed Alcohol Fuel (HMAF), a powerful formulated blend of simple "n" alcohols designed for use in today's gasoline and diesel engines, with no engine modifications required. 
 
The world needs cleaner transportation fuel, and less pollution, and this is IT. Much cleaner in composition than gasoline or diesel fuels, and completely biodegradeable, HMAF  blends seamlessly into all types of petroleum fuels, providing a clean, strong oxygenate fuel that boosts engine performance,  mileage, and dramatically lowers tailpipe emissions.  Millions of flex-fuel vehicles on the road today can burn HMAF at 85%, and all other gasoline and diesel vehicles can use the fuel at 5-30% blends, with no engine modifications.  

What it's made from: 
Look at what's in your trash can. Look at municipal landfills. Look at heaps of old tires. There are many billions of tons of trash and garbage buried in the world's landfills, thousands of acres of tire dumps, and millions of acres of overgrown forests waiting for the next lightning strike. We can produce this alcohol fuel from all of these carbon resources and more.

HMAF's  environmental value is that it is the cleanest burning of all liquid fuels. Its economic value is that it will be profitable to produce from society's trash and garbage. We can produce this fuel anywhere there are sufficient waste resources, and create good paying jobs that benefit the local economy.

How we do it...
Using proven technology of gasification and Gas To Liquid (GTL) fuel synthesis. We super-heat the feedstock (trash) in a gasifier until it breaks apart at the molecular level. The process is closed, meaning there is NO smokestack. We are not burning the feedstock, it is converted into synthetic gas, or "syngas." The syngas is then passed over catalysts using a GTL process.  What comes out is  vehicle-ready Higher Mixed Alcohol Fuel.

Why you should donate...
We are self-funded with support from a small number of donors and investors to date, and company principals have put every asset we have on the line to make it happen. We are not millionaires, just normal people like you. We cannot do this alone. Building commercial-scale HMAF projects is not cheap, however, once a commercial-scale project is built and operating normally, it will generate many times its initial investment over an anticipated lifetime of 40-50 years. 

We are not in this for the money, although there is certainly money to be made. We are in it for the planet, or more precisely, our childrens' planet. We cannot continue to generate waste and pollution without doing more to ease the unbearable load we are placing on our planet's fragile environment.

We are asking YOU to help.  You can help change the way the world thinks about energy and wastes, and how humanity takes care of its carbon business. 
Unlike big investment firms, most people see past quarterly financials as a measure of success, and understand the growing risks of continued business as usual from dirty energy emissions and pollution. 

Your donations will keep us alive and kicking. And we fully intend to keep kicking. We will not accept investments from sources that are not ecologically moral in their business dealings. Your money will keep us going until such time that we either fund our first project or we die. It goes without saying, we prefer the former instead of the latter.

Thank you for reading and considering offering your support, and sharing this campaign with others.  May Mother Earth rain her blessings upon you for your support!

We have raised a paltry $350 so far for a product that will CHANGE THE WORLD, meanwhile a bicyclist with a flare for the obscene has raised over $100K. And we wonder why we are in the situation we are in.

Let's DO THIS!! I got a desire to help get this free market redistribution of resources potential out there! This could essentially turn land fills, natural gas plants, biogas plants, and clean coal power plants' scrubbed exhaust outputs into carbon sequestering fuel stations with recycled useful metal and road repair slag dispensaries!

I'll invest every nickel and dime I can lay my hands on, and every waking hour of my life, to turn on the sleeping giant of alcohol fuels.
