Old cars that run on gas aren’t going away soon, and it’ll take a fair sized paradigm shift to get most people to convert their gas-powered cars into something that runs on anything else, or even convert them to hybrids. So technology that can make gasoline from a renewable resource is rx cialis pretty dang handy for the time between now and generic overnight viagra when the last gas-powered car goes into a museum or Jay Leno’s garage.
We’ve seen the potential of gasoline from algae, but there is also a push to www.hitlabnz.org turn trash into gas – a concept that has many appeal factors. Byogy, out of viagra online us Bakersfield, CA, is claiming its process converts trash, manure (both animal and human), landscaping wastes, and other food wastes into high-grade, 95 octane gasoline at a production cost of only $1.20-$2.00 per gallon.
The process and company have yet to prove themselves, and a facility won’t be online until two years from now. But Byogy hopes that by 2022, it can fill 2% of the sale levitra nation’s gas tanks. If the technology is successful, I suspect that a larger percentage than that will be obtained by several companies picking through waste sites – a very happy image.
In theory, this “biofuel” is as ECO of Byogy Daniel L Rudnick says, “the Holy Grail of all biofuels” – but I hesitate to call it that just yet, considering we haven’t really seen results.
While gasoline simply isn’t a perfect option for our energy needs, this new tech is definitely an exciting prospect and, in keeping with reality, we need a sustainable alternative to gasoline that the masses can use while our nation, and the world, shifts mindsets to realize that gas-powered vehicles are so last season.
