butanol

rjoh878646December 2, 2005

A gentleman in Columbus ohio has come up with a cost effective method of producing Butanol. butanol can be run straight in a gasoline powered engine with very few modifications, mostly resetting the timing. The fuel system does not need modification. He is planning on producing it from bio waste. It uses a fermentation process. He is currently looking for funding for a pilot plant. See links below.

"He is currently looking for funding..."
