Microfueler makes ethanol from garbageAt Demo Fall 2010, E-Fuel Corporation is showing off its home and business "reactor" that converts organic waste into ethanol or electricity.
-Hi! My name is Tom Quinn. I'm the CEO and Founder of E-Fuel Corporation. This is a waste conversion takes into energy. We take organic wastes and this machine processes that waste and makes it into an ethenol fuel base that will run on any car on the road today and it generates at 24/7. It can run at your home or your office. Its main purpose is to generate fuel for your automobile. It will generate up to 14,000 galloons per year, so it's enough for not only you, but, you know, a large family or a business [unk]. This machine will also power a wet ethanol combustion generator. The generator is capable of producing enough power to run the average American home completely without the assistance of the grid and the heat from this generator also is used to make the fuel in the Microfueler. So it's very efficient operation. We use the heat loss of the generator to make the fuel, so the fuel cost is very inexpensive as well as electricity for your home.
