Selected as equipment components to create THE PHYTO-TRON reactor:
|1. PhytoTron500 - 500 gallon continuous feed Reactor
(Based Upon University Of Connecticut Patent Pending Reactor)
|2. One 6,000 rpm centrifuge||$ 1,500.00|
|3. One Ultrasonic transducer||$ 3,500.00|
|4. One MicroWave Cavity||$ 2,000.00
|Minus Govt. Cash Rebate of 1/2 total price||$6,250.00|
|Total out-of-pocket Expense||$6,250.00|
The standard 'batch method' of BioDiesel refinement, called
The Transesterification Reaction
(in the presence of heat and Catalysts) AND The Settling Process, requires 1 hour for the
reaction and 12 hours of ‘settling’ time.
With the simple integration of “SonoChemistry” into THE PHYTO-TRON REACTOR consisting of:
1. An UltraSonic Transducer of a unique design and relatively
(which dramatically reduces cost)
2. A MicroWave cavity for super-fast heating to an optimum of 140 degrees
3. And an automated ‘small-scale’ PhytoTron is converted instantaneously to a continuous
whereby instead of taking 12 hours in ‘batch mode’, will now take 8 minutes using 21st century SonoChemistry.
Cost of such UltraSonic equipment necessary, is as low as $3,500.00.
This is a remarkable drop from the $10,000.00 - $15,000 just a year ago.
If the total equipment cost of A PHYTO-TRON to enter the 25 billion dollar market is only $10,000.00, a totally new BioDiesel Transesterification Industry can be borne overnight creating green jobs.
In Contrast, ‘turn-key’ equipment that includes SonoChemistry for 1,000 gal/per/day capacity
Systems routinely cost between $95,000.00 and $150,000.00 which is down from 1/2 million
just 2 years ago.
Employing this unique PHYTO-TRON design of a 500 gallon per day ‘continuous feed Sonochemistry’ BioDiesel TransEsterification Reactor for less than $10,000.00 per installation can reach 5,000 Installations nationwide and create 25,000 new jobs. Five (5) jobs for every one (1) installation.
The purpose is to see if a combination of super-low-cost technology and significant Government Incentives can be ‘harnessed’ under a single ‘brand’ to produce a national network of 5,000 local and independent producers of an extremely standardized and effective and valuable BioDiesel product as a Lubricant from a $25 billion dollar ‘feed stock’ creating 25,000 new 'green jobs'.
Harnessing a comprehensive set of U.S. Govt. FORMS comprising of Subsidies and Mandates that guarantee Renewable Incentives up to 90% of the equipment and production costs.
