WHAT: SANTA CRUZ, CA.

They were featured on major TV and Radio networks throughout the Bay explaining ways we can convert gas and diesel engines to power electrical generators and turbines (such as those associate with nuclear and coal-fired power plants) to provide safe, clean renewable fuel for our energy needs.

• Produce appropriate-scale alcohol fuel from waste, toxic/spoiled food, native and cultivated crops for less than $1.00 per gallon.
• Inexpensively convert gas and diesel engines to run on affordable and sustainable alcohol
• Develop abundant localized non-exportable jobs and create food security
