San Diego-based GreenHouse to distribute feedstock for E-Fuel MicroFueler™
Sacramento (Vocus) June 4, 2009 -- California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joined San Diego-based GreenHouse on the steps of the State Capitol this morning as E-Fuel Corp. unveiled the final production model of the revolutionary E-Fuel MicroFueler, a portable micro-refinery fuel system for consumer use. The State of California’s Department of General Services is also exploring a pilot program to test the MicroFueler with its flex-fuel vehicles. To see video from today’s press conference go to www.GreenHouseEnergy.com.
“We are making our state a cleaner, greener and healthier place for everyone, but our goals require revolutionary technologies and low-carbon fuels,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “That’s why I get so excited about the entrepreneurial spirit of creative and innovative companies who have been inspired by our groundbreaking environmental policies and are putting people to work right here in California. It’s great news for our economy, our environment and our energy future.”
GreenHouse Energy, a division of GreenHouse, will be the exclusive distributor of the E-Fuel MicroFueler in California and Arizona.
“GreenHouse is fully committed to making private use of alternative fuel an affordable reality by the end of 2009,” said Chris Ursitti, GreenHouse CEO. “As a result of the Governor’s forward-leaning environmental policies, we will make home delivery of clean and affordable ethanol something every Californian can count on.”
The E-Fuel distribution system is a model for sustainability. The organic fuel is produced using carbohydrate waste products found abundantly in brewery waste, algae and cellulose (no corn or food-based products). Using state-of-the-art semiconductor technology, the appliance-sized units are pump-stations and ethanol distillers that can be installed at residences by the GreenHouse distribution team.
Each MicroFueler requires three kilowatts of electricity to produce a gallon of Efuel100, in turn one gallon of Efuel100 will generate up to 23 kilowatts of power. The ethanol generated will play an affordable and integral part in reducing California greenhouse gas emissions.
GreenHouse has partnered with notable companies including Karl Strauss, Gordon Biersch and Sunny Delight, to convert 29,000 tons of liquid waste using the Efuel 100 Microfueler process.
