UnifiedFUELS patented "feedstock neutral" process uses a form of gasification and distillation in which the biomass's carbon chains are disassembled in a gaseous state and then reassembled into a liquid fuel. Our process utilizes 100% of the carbon molecule and creates a 3% non-toxic organic bi-product which can be utilized as fertilizer or blended with other feedstock materials. Our system IS NOT: Transesterification Ethanol Fermentation Typical Gasification Typical Pyrolysis Fischer-Tropsch Cracking Crude Oil/Distillation
UnifiedFUELS prototype unit demonstrated over 20 pilot runs which resulted in pure, ready-to-use renewable fuels based on independent laboratory results. Multiple feedstocks produced consistent fuels that exceeded ASTM D-975 standards and EPA Highway Certification regardless of feedstock.
Due to the sensitive and proprietary nature of our technology, we are only able to show a portion of the 1/5 th scale prototype. Full System Footprint approximately 4,600 square feet with a generous border of feet for work space. Photograph shows one fifth scale biomass processing plant.

PRESS RELEASE March 17, 2010, 10:30 a.m. EDT · RecommendRecommend Cyclone Power Technologies Signs Letter of Intent with Unified Fuels POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Mar 17, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (Pink Sheets: CYPW) has signed a letter of intent with Unified Fuels LLC of Foley, Alabama regarding the co-development and systems integration of Cyclone's heat-regenerative external combustion engines. Under the LOI, Cyclone and Unified will perform certain business and technological feasibility studies related to using Cyclone's Mark V and Waste Heat Engines with Unified's waste-to-fuel systems. Unified's process uses a form of destructive distillation in which manipulation of the carbon chains in the biomass occurs with the end resultant being a liquid fuel. The final products of this process are diesel fuel, gasoline, methane and heat. The latter two energy forms, which would otherwise be wasted, can be used in the Cyclone Engines to power Unified's total system and, possibly, create additional revenue streams for the facility owner.
Based on laboratory results, our system will produce Renewable Diesel as defined by The Environmental Protection Agency The Department Of Energy The Internal Revenue Service ( for blenders tax credit) and will meet ASTM D975 certification specifications along with being EPA Highway Certifiable
FEEDSTOCKS THAT CAN BE UTILIZED Algae (Dry) Wood (Dry) Plastics & Effluent Solids Trap Grease (FOG Materials) Manures (blended with additive to raise BTU value) Coals (Various Types) Optimum fuel results are produced from a feedstock with >12,000 BTU (lower BTU value feedstocks can be blended with other materials to reach >12,000 BTU)
GENERAL OVERVIEW We produce high quality liquid fuels at approximately 1/2 the cost of petrol fuel Excluding cost of feedstock, we can create fuel for about $1.30 per gallon (Pro-Forma available upon request) Our fuels can be used in any vehicle that runs on diesel, regular gasoline or jet fuel Our "Feedstock Neutral" system creates consistent, high quality fuels from one feedstock to the next. Changing feedstocks can be done with simple computer input modifications Our technology will create jobs across America Fuel dependent businesses can see a considerable decrease in operating costs Protection of Eco-Systems will vastly improve fresh water fish and seafood harvesting through the elimination of high nitrogen waste.
General System Overview System footprint is 4,600 sq feet including a generous 9 – 12 foot work area surrounding the unit. Fuel storage would be outside of the plant facility System designed to run 330 days annually and only requires approximately 2.5 days per month down time for regular maintenance System is a closed unit with zero emissions and requires no alcohol, water or fossil-fuel System produces 360 tons of non-toxic organic ash bi-product annually that can be used as a fertilizer or blended with other feedstock material to create fuel
General System Overview II The process is environmentally friendly, as we do not foresee any issues that would result in public complaints A technical description of this novel system design is a direct conversion liquefaction process that utilizes pyrolysis of the feedstock as a process step. It truly is a unique process. Our system IS NOT a combustion process, nor is it typical gasification, wholly pyrolysis, anaerobic digestion, fermentation (like ethanol), transesterification (as traditional biodiesel), or Fischer-Tropsch. Unlike ethanol systems, our process requires NO water and NO methyl alcohol.
Fuel And Power Generation System converts 19,800,000 lbs of feedstock annually/2500 lbs per hour System creates 1.5 – 2 million gallons of diesel fuel annually (units can be linked to increase fuel production) System creates 150,000 gallons of regular 89 octane fuel annually System creates 6.4 million lbs of mid-level methane syn-gas annually System only requires 110 kw continuous power, 230 amps at 480 volts System can operate exclusive of the power grid, as the mid-level Methane syn-gas produced can be utilized to power the unit
External Power Generation The mid-level methane syn-gas produced is approximately 1600 lbs per hour equating to 670 lbs per sq. inch. The mid-level methane syn-gas can be converted to power producing 6 megawatts of continuous power

Summary UnifiedFUELS technology will change the scope of energy and the bio-fuel industry through the conversion of feedstock into pure, ready-to-use fuels. Our biomass processing plant produces high quality diesel, gasoline and JP-8 jet fuel while producing a superior mid-level methane syn-gas to power the unit itself. Through joint ventures and cooperatives, the potential to provide additional agricultural and other revenues will benefit every state. Your company should recognize immediate benefits through environmental press releases showing how an entire spectrum of waste products can be addressed to provide continued environmental responsibility and generate new revenues.
