About Better Biodiesel
Better Biodiesel has developed proprietary waterless technology that significantly reduces the costs of biodiesel production and its impact on the environment. A key environmental distinction in the Company’s production method is the absence of any caustic chemicals in the catalytic reaction process, which enables the Company to eliminate the washing and evaporation steps necessary under customary biodiesel production processes. This proprietary technology speeds up the production timeline, increases the volume of fuel that can be made within a given time period, and reduces the amount of land needed for the production plant. The Company’s initial plant is producing approximately three million gallons per year and has a total footprint of less than 160 square feet. By contrast, several acres are required for a conventional biodiesel facility of the same production capacity. Better Biodiesel’s initial estimates indicate that it can achieve a twenty percent reduction in the cost of producing biodiesel fuel and a forty percent reduction in the cost of building its biodiesel plants as compared with conventional production methods and facilities.
The Company believes that it can take advantage of these efficiencies and plans to increase its current capacity ten-fold by late spring and potentially reach 100 million gallons of production capacity by year end 2007. The Company’s objective is to become one of the world’s largest producers of biodiesel (www.betterbiodiesel.com).
