Natchez, Mississippi [RenewableEnergyAcccess.com] U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. (USSEC) and Sustainable Power Corp. (SSTP) announced a joint venture (JV) with Agri Max Fuels, LLC to focus on producing ethanol/diesel/biodiesel blends made possible by USSEC’s proprietary fuel additive. As per a previous licensing agreement, SSTP has exclusive rights to market the fuel.
Agri Max Fuels, LLC currently operates a biodiesel facility capable of producing approximately 15,000 gallons of biodiesel per day. The JV will expand the operations of this initial plant and will focus on blending ethanol with biodiesel and diesel, including provisions for expanding production up to one hundred million gallons per year of biodiesel.
Blending ethanol with diesel results in a renewable, oxygenated, cleaner-burning fuel suitable for off- and on-road use in both new and old engines. E-Diesel improves diesel engine performance while cutting visible smoke and reducing hazardous emissions in multiple ways through the lowering of fuel sulfur content in fuel and sulfur byproduct emissions, and the 35% oxygen content present in the ethanol decreases gaseous and particulate emission. Adding biodiesel to the blend increases the “green” renewable components of the fuel and displaces more diesel with renewable fuels.
Michael D. Galbraith, President of Agri Max Fuels, LLC, said, “I am very impressed with the USSEC fuel additive and resulting oxygenated fuel. I think E-Diesel is the future for diesel engines in all applications because of the reduced emissions and benefit to the environment.”
The USSEC biofuel is created at a nominal cost as the byproduct of producing organic fertilizer from recycled waste products, a discovery made during research into agricultural biomass now known as the “Rivera Process.”
