Energy Policy that will change the world
By Alan Anderson
How can the U.S. Government cut costs and change energy policy in less than 5yrs? Keep it Simple Senators (K.I.S.S.). There has been a detour in the fight for Oil Independence in America. The U.S. Government spends Billions of dollars a year in Bio-fuels research trying to find out what they consider the best fuel to use to replace petroleum. The problem is that all that money they spend is a waste of taxpayer’s hard earned money. The rest of the world already knows what the best fuel is to replace gasoline. Hydrous Ethanol (pure ethanol), is ethanol processed to its simplest form and its optimum performance. The low cost to produce one gallon of hydrous ethanol in the U.S. could never be matched by gasoline refiners anywhere in the world. It cost more to pump oil from Mother Earth, that’s not counting shipping it to refineries or processing it to gasoline. So why are ethanol producers in the U.S. having such a hard time keeping their product competitive with gasoline? They forgot the basics. Ethanol is made by fermenting sugar from feedstock. Simple enough right? But that’s not what we do in the U.S.; we take corn and extract starch, then process it to sugar, ferment it to ethanol then distill the water out of it. It costs just a little less to do that whole process than it does to make gasoline. So in the end it is hard for ethanol to be a cost effective alternative to the price of gas.
What would it be like to drive up to an E100 Hydrous Ethanol pump and fill your tank up on cheap, 100% clean domestic fuel? Cheap domestic Hydrous Ethanol would have a global impact on everything from food to consumer products. Food prices that some claims are because of the use of corn in the production of ethanol (untrue) would drop only because fuel costs will drop dramatically. The prices of everything that are shipped from one place to another will cost less. You see, that’s what Americans want. Something they can see and use that will have a real meaningful impact on their bottom line. Companies will save money to ship their products. Farmers will be able to save money to feed their livestock and lower their operating costs to farm their crops again. So who will lose if we make a dramatic change to cheap fuel? Don’t worry about U.S. Oil companies and OPEC nations. They have plenty of other countries around the world they exploit with oil.
Let government know that you want them to set policy for true renewable fuel and energy and then let private business invest in building cost effective fuels and energy for America.
First we need the auto industry to produce engines that run on pure Ethanol and not gasoline. It will not cost consumers more to do this. The technology is already here. Then Ethanol production needs to be simplified to make E100- Hydrous Ethanol, the most inexpensive form of ethanol made in the world. It doesn’t get much better than this. No added cost to taxpayers and lower cost fuels that will lower costs on everything from food to big screen TVs and new cars.
