Solanol is our Ethanol

Our Production of Ethanol is Unique

It is the only process that converts the sun’s energy (or other renewable power sources such as Geothermal, Wind, tidal) into a liquid transportation fuel.  This dramatically helps to deal with the problem of Carbon (Co2) Sequestering, Kyoto economics and global warming.

Advantages of Solanol Ethanol

  1. The cost of Ethanol in 2009 per 789 kg / 1740lb = US$1000 equivalent to 1000 Litres / 264 Gallons @ US$1.00 Litre / $3.80 Gallon.
  2. Has superior properties when combusted than hydrocarbons and with the same range.
  3. Better suited to the hybrid electric car market because it’s carbon neutral.
  4. Can be easily produced using off-the-shelf catalytic infrastructure.
  5. Has a high Octane @ 120 and can be easy blended into existing petrol infrastructure.
  6. Because of the above advantages and that Ethanol-SOLANOL is carbon neutral it can be sold @ a current of Gate price-US$1.00 per litre / US$3.80 per Gallon into the wholesale and retail transport Industry.

EGF Solanol Ethanol Production per Kg of Hydrogen (C2H5OH)

  • H2=1Kg
  • O2=2.66Kg
  • C=4Kg
  • To manufacture 4 kg of Carbon, we require 14.66kg of CO2
  • We require 18kg water
  • We need 150 kWh to produce 2kg of hydrogen - because of the conversion efficiency (50%) gives us 1 kg hydrogen
  • We also produce 16kg of Oxygen
  • We produce 7.66kg (9.58 litres) of Ethanol per 2 kg Hydrogen

Hazard free

Ethanol is completely bio-gradable will not effect the environment

The Eco Global Fuels model for energy fuel production is more
cost-effective than our competitors, including corn and sugarcane based ethanol, yielding a higher ROI without subsidies and without having any effect on food prices.

EGF is approximately 70% more cost effective than corn or sugar based Ethanol, and uses no food, fossil fuels or government subsidies in its production.

However, please note, we are not in competition with Biofuels, as the alternative fuel marketplace cannot get enough to meet government guidelines.

Solanol Ethanol is produced without using oil, coal, LNG, or any other fossil based hydrocarbon feed stock fuel. Also for every one kg/lb of hydrogen produced, eight kg/lb of oxygen is also manufactured and sold, and/or piped directly to gas/coal turbines to reduce CO2 emissions

Research has revealed carbon neutral liquid alcohol fuel (Solanol) has superior properties in combustion engine economy, engine performance and exhaust emissions. Because of global fuel distribution and marketing infrastructure

Engine Economy

Fuel economy tests resulted in an increase in kilometers of 16% in a loaded vehicle and a decrease of 5% in an unloaded vehicle, even though the calorific value of the Ethanol alcohol was only 23.44MJ per Litre when compared with Petrol having a calorific value of 34.6MJ per Litre.

Exhaust Emissions

As alcohol burns much cleaner when combusted, with the resultant added range the exhaust emissions are drastically reduced by 92%. Solanol has the added benefit of being carbon neutral.

Production of Solanol

  • Solar panels, geo thermal or any renewal energy source is used as the power source.
  • We can also use off-peak electricity which has the advantage of low cost production, and increasing the ROI and using waste elecricity.
  • We can also use Natural gas turbines as an energy input, efficiently converting this to a transport fuel- refer to our documents section for more details.
  • Hydroxy Generators are utilized for the production of Hydrogen.
  • It is then separated from Oxygen by our own unique cost efficient separation chamber.
  • We add CO2 either from the atmosphere or from normally invented industrial sources e.g. coal power stations and gas fields.
  • CO2 is converted with Hydrogen into ethanol using catalysis to produce Carbon neutral, Solanol.
  • In a widely used known process called Fischer Tropsc h Synthesis (FTS), developed over the last 60 years, fuels like ethanol and aviation fuels are produced by varying the catalysts used. The good news is these catalysts are forever being refined and coming down in price as the renewable energy industry increases demand. Our cost analysis proves it is doable, safe, and economic with the desired ROI.

The above combines into producing the cheapest Ethanol

  • Without using fossil fuels
  • Without using FOOD
  • Completely carbon neutral, renewable...
  • And REMOVES CO2 from the atmosphere and/or from coal/oil power stations and gas fields and provides a very reasonable above average ROI creating a win-win for all.
