Small addition to existing infrastructure Up to 25% of the feedstock could be naturally occurring CO2 Could substantially boost methanol yield Lower the carbon footprint of the fuel But requires methanol distribution system Effective where large metro areas are in close proximity to the gas fields
Methanol production on demand Container-size gasifier connected to municipal water and municipal gas No need for truck delivery and underground storage tank Even at a commercial gas rate of over $8/Mcf, methanol produced for under $1.5 a gallon Profit margins are huge compared to profit
For new cars: Open Fuel Standard For existing cars: Activate E85 fuel flexibility + replace elastomers (seals and O-rings) = You get M60 compatibility Upgrade to higher methanol blends with a simple spark table modification
Very low tail pipe emissions 15% improved MPG relative to gasoline on energy content equivalent These results are similar to the results published by the Chinese experiment “16 gallons of methanol equal to 10 gallons of gasoline”
Pass the Open Fuel Standard with methanol support requirement EPA to define a standard for fuel-grade methanol including additives EPA to relax after-market conversion rules EPA to give a waver for the 1 lb. rule UL certification for methanol mixer pumps National open source repository for replacement fuels spark tables (a.k.a. “tunes”)
To capitalize on this trillion dollar-a-year opportunity we all need to work together The Fuel Freedom Foundation is an NGO committed to opening the fuel market to competition FuelFreedom.org
