Green Fuel Production

Jan. 19, 2007
New plant to produce 6,000 gallons of biofuel daily.

A new bioenergy facility located in Natchez, Miss. is able to produce 6,000 gallons of biofuel daily by creating five gallons of fuel from every bushel of soybean stock. The plant, called FREEUS, is operated by U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. (USSES). The FREEUS reactor is the first of more than 200 planned reactor tubes scheduled for installation over the next 12 months at the Natchez facility, with further announcements on additional site locations for 2008 expected by March.

The conversion rate at this plant is three times more effective than the creation of traditional biodiesel according to USSEC. The fuel is weather resistance up to -90 degrees Fahrenheit, a BTU rating similar to petroleum diesel.

The USSEC biofuel is created 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." The technology can be utilized to produce ethanol for 30% to 35% less than other sources according to a company statement.
