self-propelled trash transformer for the Burning Man festival exploring the bio-imitative nature of synthetic "metabolic machines" and hydrocarbon fuels & foods 120 feet long - 20 feet wide - 25 feet tall trash-to-fuel racer slug Principals Designers Jim Mason, Dann Davis, Chicken John Main Collaborators & Sub-Project Leaders Dov Jelen, Kiko Almund, Jess Hobbs, Brandi Hugo, Peef Sadow, Darrel Licks, Peter Durand, Michael Christian, Bear Kaufmann Project Management Babalou, Rachel Gasification Technology Trash - into - Gas burning our way to a better tomorrow Cyborg Speculations on Machine Metabolism powered by biofuel Trash - into - gas - mobile woodgas pickup truck traction power Using Biofuel click to continue click to continue click to continue
Can biofuel compete with fossil fuel? Can biofuel really replace fossil fuel? As oil prices rise, biofuels become competitive Profits can be made on co-products Proportionate primary research funding Venture capital startup investments Biofuel refining & distribution infrastructures Formulate uniform standards & testing Negotiate carbon trade credit sanction Using Biofuel replace fossil fuel with renewable energy Agriculture Transportation Home heating Food processing & cooking Hydrogen production Electric generation Other useful chemicals The Key to Energy Independence click to continue click to continue The Way to Reverse Global Warming photosynthesis to sequester carbon The Way to Reverse Global Heating
R egional G reenhouse G as I nitiative Form New England Biochar & Biofuel Network Implement pyrolysis & biochar to sequester carbon Advocate carbon credit for agriculture under RGGI Research making biochar from native resources Utilize biochar in farming, horticulture, forestry… Retool farms to operate with biochar & biofuels Form farm cooperatives to produce biofuels Acquire pyrolysis systems for farms & communities Develop regional biofuel refining & distribution carbon-negative carbon-negative to reverse global “heating” nutrient dense dense to reverse degenerative disease Confronting Our Climate Change Challenge click to continue What’s to be done? If we produce & market food labeled “nutrient “nutrient dense” and “carbon “carbon negative” Anybody want to make charcoal this fall? Climate Change ChallengeConfronting Our will people buy it? 2 nd international conference Newcastle, England September click to continue click to continue are you ready for the next PARADIGM SHIFT?
