A business opportunity in Green Fuel

I have encouraged a couple of my friends locally in New England to begin collecting and storing used vegetable cooking oil from the local restaurants. Most of them have to pay to have it hauled away. If you take this oil and let it "settle out" over a month or two in barrels it cleans up very nicely. The next step is to build or buy a simple filtering system consisting of a pump and a filter that is rated at five microns. We have recently made a decision to build these filters using stainless steel at our plant in India, but they can be locally purchased from any number of suppliers on the Internet. Once you have a filtering system you can begin filtering and selling this oil by the 55 gallon drum loads. Never pump from the bottom of the barrel as most of the water and sludge is there and that would defeat the whole purpose of the initial settling process. There are many web discussions about filtering and using Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO) if you search them out on I do not claim to be a leading authority on the subject, but the main goal is to get all of the debris and water out of the oil. A good SVO system on a car or generator using a diesel engine will include a device to capture any water that escapes the settling and filtering process. We are currently building and testing SVO systems at our plant in India. There is a complete education on SVO systems and Bio Diesel fuels on the Internet if you take the time to search out the info on SVO fuel is one of the most simple of the energy businesses and one of the main side benefits is that SVO is very low in pollutants, besides being much lower in cost as compared to diesel fuel. Do not attempt to use it in gasoline-powered engines.
I will try to think of something interesting for next time.

How can I make money in the alternate energy business?

There are several ways that you can make a great deal of money in the alternate energy business, but first we should review the many facets of the business.
There is solar power, which includes heating and also making electricity with solar electric modules. Wind power, Water (Hydro) Power, Alternate Fuels, Electric Vehicles and Mass Transportation. Each one of these fields breaks down into literally hundreds of sub categories. We are currently building (I like to invent things) a very lightweight portable electric mall cruiser at our facilities in India.

The best way to find all the alternate energy products is to do a search on
So what does all this mean to you? First of all, cleaner air! Basically, most of these fields have been virtually ignored in the USA for 35 years because our government (congress) did not do their job properly due to the influence of “big energy and big automotive.) Now we are all paying the price. Almost every other country in the world is light years ahead of us when it comes to the number of free energy systems in use. China for examples has over thirty million solar hot water heaters in use. It means that due to recent events we have all just received a giant kick in the belly when it comes to our energy bills. Very soon now the costs will rise even higher. The American public, which is crisis oriented, will do their usual panic routine and rush out to buy energy saving products, as witnessed by the fact that many of them are already dumping their gas hogs and going back to more economical vehicles. Remember the Y2K generator panic? Many generator suppliers got rich on that one. We were right on the leading edge.
Now you don’t have to be the wizard of Wall Street to figure out that if you are one of the proud owners of a business that is offering a viable energy saving product that is selling for a reasonable price and a quick delivery – you are going to make a lot of money. Six dollars a gallon fuel costs are not that far off -- trust me!
There are several avenues that you can explore in process of getting a good quality product. You can buy it (the easiest) invent it, build it, sell your idea to someone else (be very careful) for a royalty. Energy products can be sold outright to consumers and businesses or leased in the case of larger and more expensive systems.
We will go on in future blogs to discuss the various products in the energy field on a more detailed basis. Here is a quickie product idea for you. We are currently designing a product for a client in Thailand that is a quick and reasonable solution to burning palm oil in their diesel vehicles. Think about it! As the man says, “I got a million of um, just as good!) It is interesting to note that the king of Thailand is one of the largest boosters of alternate energy of any world leader. (Look up SVO on ) Next time we will go into more about ideas that work if you have the time, and most of all, the spine to focus on one of them and make it work.
By the way, I am not ashamed to tell you that I have failed many times in my life. It was my own fault for trying all those crazy ideas. But I found out that if you “never give up and you never stop trying” you would succeed!
Please feel free to send questions or comments.

Why should you listen to me?

Why should you listen to me?
Because I have made a good living in the alternate energy and other businesses for many years beginning in 1954, and I am not trying to sell you a bill of goods. Another reason is that we need fresh ideas, and new blood in the business.
The main reason that you need your own business is because there is absolutely no security in a private sector job any longer no matter how high you are up in the food chain because there are sharks (accountants)(bean counters) that will eat you up and spit you out to save a handful of dollars on the bottom line, and because our business is putting other people in business all over the world thanks to the Internet and we (I’m bragging now) have done well at that. Now, next time we'll get down to business.

The coming of the green mega millionaires

I think I should fill you in on myself first so you will understand where I am coming from and what my experience is. Those details are available here. If it bores you, skip it!
The next thing you should know is that the purpose of this blog is to get more people interested in the Alternate Energy Business. Believe me, this time it is no false alarm, and we have to exploit every source of cheap or free energy we possibly can. This blog will go into the reasons why, and how we can realistically accomplish the goal of cheap, clean energy. The people who listen to what I have to say and apply the knowlegde can become the next green energy billionaires.
I will add to this blog as often as possible. Next time I will discuss some possible business opportunities.
Your comments on this blog will be appreciated.
