John Davis

df-logoIt’s like the scene in Back to the Future II, where the crazy old professor stuffs garbage into his flux capacitor in the back of the DeLorean and flies off to the future (or is that the past?).

bluefireCalifornia-based BlueFire Ethanol Fuels has developed a process called Concentrated Acid Hydrolysis Technology that expands the amount of feedstocks that can be easily converted into ethanol, opening the door to cellulosic sources, such as garbage.

In this edition of the Domestic Fuel Cast, we talk to Arnie Klann, President and CEO of BlueFire Ethanol Fuels, and let him explain how this unique process works… and the future that it holds.
