G.E.T. Smart - Smart Fuels: Blue Marble Energy Presentation G.E.T. Smart - Smart Fuels: Blue Marble Energy Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • A smart fuel would be worthless
  • The Other Oil Problem
  • Oil Refiners Bulk Chemical Mfr. Specialty Chemical Mfr. Flavor / Fragrance Mfr. Chemical Market
  • BME Value Pyramid $$$ Specialty Chemicals Value Bulk Chemicals $ Fuels Volume
  • Chemical Retail Profile tropical, cocoa, iso-propyl formate $1228 / Liter ethereal, solvent camphor, blueberry, voc tert-butyl acetate $308 / Liter exempt 4 Target Chemicals iso-propyl fruity, sweet, $422 / Liter pineapple, banana Millions of liters of each chemical are proprionate sold annually. Demand outstrips supply - months propyl butyrate $407 / Liter apricot, rancid, sweaty long backorders are commonplace.
  • Cost of Chemical Retail Production iso-propyl formate $1228 / Liter $4.50 / Liter tert-butyl acetate $308 / Liter $4.50 / Liter 4 Target Chemicals iso-propyl $422 / Liter $4.50 / Liter Millions of liters of each chemical are proprionate sold annually. Demand outstrips supply - months propyl butyrate $407 / Liter $4.50 / Liter long backorders are commonplace.
  • Energy - Equivalent Fuel Prices
  • Challenges •High volume - low margin •Price parity with gasoline Generation One Fuels
  • Jatropha Algae Synfuel Challenges •Emphasis still on fuel •high volume - low margin •Price parity with gasoline Generation Two Fuels
  • How does the petroleum industry make fuel profitable?
  • They make valuable stuff first!
  • Carboxylic Acids Esters & Thiols Biomass Ammonia Anaerobic Fermentation Reactors Biogas (Methane, Hydrogen, Hydrogen Sulfide, CO2) Primary Products: Organic Acids, Ammonia BME pathway to co-products Secondary Products: Methane, Hydrogen Sulfide, CO2
  • AGATE System capable of handling high nitrogen biomass through hybridization of bacteria with specific metabolites Advanced AGATE System Anaerobic Fermentation
  • $3 per gallon BME Highlights: Core Technologies AGATE Bioreactor System (Acids, Gases, and Ammonia Targeted Extraction): utilizes hybrid polyculture microorganisms to produce carboxylic acids from a broad portfolio of non-sterile biomass Patents Filed MEGAN Reaction Column: esterifies base chemicals with intermediates in a single stage utilizing chromatography & sonochemistry R&D Stage ASHLE (Ammonia Stripping, Hydrogen Liberation Electrolysis): ammonia and hydrogen production from AGATE reactors R&D Stage
  • The Future Collaboration •not everyone is going to be vertically integrated •recognize where your tech fits into the bigger picture •collaborate, not for my sake but for your own
