Numerous companies are coming up with techniques to use alternatives to fossil fuels. This is no surprise with fossil fuel prices sky-rocketing, oil supplies running out and concerns about the product’s effect on the environment becoming more abundant.
Unfortunately, demand for fossil fuels is still immense: According to the Energy Information Administration, almost 90% of the world’s primary energy production was reliant on fossil fuels in 2005.
Ethanol production is becoming more popular, but it is still unrealistic to think that it will replace the more efficient fossil fuels. It is good to have options, though: BioFuelBox makes the process of biofuel production a more attractive one by providing a unique product that is capable of manufacturing biodiesel from waste products ranging from algae and cooking oil to chicken fat and waste fish oil.
In addition to being so versatile, the BioFuelBox is designed to be portable: “Not only can our system be moved to where the feedstocks are, cutting down on the expense of trucking feedstocks to the refinery, but also, our unique patent-pending biodiesel process technology enables you to directly process wet feedstock such as algae or high FFA by product material such as animal tallow, chicken fat, or grease into ASTM quality biodiesel.“
Steven Perricone, President and CEO, has over a decade of experience in start up technological companies such as SonicWALL where Perricone played a major part in helping the company evolve from a small business of 20 employees to a company of almost 500. Another major name at BioFuelBox is Greg Anderson. As Chief Scientist at BioFuelBox, Anderson brings 24 years of biomedical, chemical, separation and fermentation science to the business and is the proud founder of McBain Laboratories.
BioFuelBox’s main goals are highlighted on their website which include:
• Ensuring that producers are able to take advantage of the widest range of feedstock including feedstock from waste streams.
• Providing opportunities to turn problem waste streams into revenue opportunities.
• Minimizing cost to make biofuel production accessible to more producers.
• Eliminating the technical challenges associated with conventional production methods.
The company is successfully eliminating almost every reason NOT to become a part of the biodiesel revolution.
