Cow-Based Motor Oil for All Your Frying and buy viagra in new zealand Lawnmowing Needs

There's too much cow fat in the world...

No, for real, there's so much cow fat that we no longer know what to do with it all. We used to how to buy viagra on-line be able to fry things in it, but saturated fats, when fried, turn into trans fats. And, nowadays, people are frightened of cialis women trans fats. So what are we going to do with the 200 lbs of tallow that result from the http://www.eastgreenbushlibrary.org/buy-levitra-online-us processing of just one cow?

Why...make motor oil from it, if course!

Green Earth Technologies is taking all of that excess, inexpensive, and previously useless tallow and turning it into cleaning solutions and motor oil for cars, lawnmowers, and boats. The company's slogan, "Be Green, Sacrifice Nothing," is kind crap...because your motor oil is one small part of the impact of whatever device you're putting it in, but that doesn't mean this isn't pretty cool.

Their website talks a lot about sustainability...packaging made from recycled milk jugs, soy-based inks, etc. But it doesn't talk a lot about the fact that their products are pretty much made from lard. I suppose they're entitled to their marketing strategies but, honestly, the cow fat part is the coolest thing about this stuff!

Lying Bio-Diesel Pumps

This could end up being quite a hit to http://www.fluestertuete.de/viagra-no-doctor the bio-diesel industry. Scientists at the Wood's Hole Oceanographic institute tested the bio-diesel mixes flowing from pumps all over the cheap tramadol nation and found that they were not what they said they were.

Only 10% of pumps actually delivered the mixtures advertised. Most biodiesel pumps advertise B20, a blend of 20% biodiesel, 80% regular diesel. This mix allows a wider range of look there levitra without prescription trucks to use the fuel, and stretches the supply of biodiesel.

Unfortunately, in the fuels tested, the actual amount of biodiesel in the fuel ranged widely from 10% to almost 75%. And while the 10% is discouraging, because the environmental gains are decreased, the 75% is what's really scary. Cars and trucks that haven't been converted to run on higher concentrations of biodiesel can be damaged by concentrations that high.

This damage, and concerns from the trucking industry, are actually why the study was done in the first place. Now here's the real bad news. This lax regulation by the levitra overnight delivery biodiesel industry is viagra pill threatening its largest contracts, including a gigantic deal with the Department of Defense.

Looks like the honeymoon is over...it's time for some real regulations on the biodiesel industry.

Turning Poop into Fuel: The Personal BioGas Machine

You gotta hand it to those people who are creating real-world solutions to real-world problems. Giant solar-collecting space lasers are pretty cool...but Sintex is for real. The Indian plastics company has created a very simple "digester" that takes something we have too much of (poop) and turns it into something we don't have enough of (energy).

The digester can actually take any organic material, including agricultural waste, kitchen scraps, or cow dung, and convert it to methane. This happens naturally, of course, and is happening in your septic tank (or at your sewage treatment plant) right now. The difference is that Sintex's biogas reactor has a little tube that moves the methane into a storage container. From there, the methane can be used for any natural gas application. Cooking, drying clothes, heating the home, boiling water, etc.

A "primed" digester (primed with cow dung, for a source of the best site buying viagra in canada good bacteria) can digest all the waste of a four-person household and produce enough energy for that household to cook all of its meals! The device costs $425 and will pay for itself in less than two years. The Indian government has agreed to subsidize 1/3 of the cost of the units. In theory, that will actually save the government money, as they won't have to deal with the waste in other ways.

Sintex has only installed about 100 of the devices...but just wait. When real-world problems get real-world solutions, it's hard to hold them back from success.

Virgin Atlantic Completes First BioFueled Flight

In a 747 containing a stunning 5% biofuel, Virgin Atlantic proved that you can indeed fly a plane on http://www.guenstige-versicherungen-online.de/canadian-healthcare bio-diesel.

There was actually some question as to whether it would be possible actually, because jet fuel has to high quality cialis stay liquid and non-viscous at extremely low temperatures. Most bio-diesel at those temperatures would become too thick to feed into the buying levitra engines. However, a young biofuel startup in Seattle, Imperium, created a mixture that when mixed in ratios up to 40:60 with jet fuel, stayed usable.

The Virgin flight ran one of the four engines on a 20:80 mix of the Imperium fuel, for an overall replacement of 1/20th of the fuel used on the flight. Of course, with recent fears over the sustainability of cialis online from canada bio-fuels due to replacement of food crops and www.expert-nett.fr deforestation, it's unclear whether bio-diesel is going to escape from this battle in tact. Only if large-scale production of bio-diesel from algae hits the mainstream will we see this technology taking off.

Ethanol has more of a future, as it's easier to produce it in mass quantities from waste products. However, ethanol contains less energy than bio-diesel per gram, which is a trade-off the airline industry is unlikely to make, even if they can get it to run in jet engines.

Coskata's Cheap Non-Food Ethanol Available in 2010

The ethanol technology company Coskata (who was subject of a major announcement in conjunction with General Motors at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year) has announced a strategic alliance with ICM, Inc., a major producer of ethanol, to design and construct the first plant using Coskata's bio-process for creating non-food-based ethanol.

Although a location for the first Coskata plant has not yet been announced, the press release for this announcement indicated that this plant is wow)) low price levitra expected to open in 2010. Company executives spoke of a quick drive to non generic levitra market with the technology when Coskata made its initial announcements in early January, and this certainly reflects that mindset.

In the meantime, we'll be watching for more information about the pilot plant Coskata is planning to set up in the nearer future, and for more information about steps in ethanol distribution. Making E85 more widely available is going to be an important part of making this technology meaningful in the overall fuel mix.
