Ohio BioSystems Cooperative, Inc. has been established as a
not-for-profit Research and Development entity in Holmes and Ashland
We are a nonprofit think-tank engaged in
focused scientific research and development for energy independence. We
intend to lead this nation into a renewable and sustainable energy
independence through focused scientific knowledge, synergistic
collaborations, exact technical know-how through and to the
implementation of for-profit spin-offs and when possible or practical
the aid and assistance of other renewable energy based business models.
We have named this as the National
Transportation Energy Program with 6 (six) Projects that will remove the
National Threat that imported oil possesses. There is a seventh
project that is methodologically in the very far future and will only be
discussed to lay the groundwork for some enterprising young scientist in
the very far future.
Our alliances and membership across the
United States and the globe support our business model in scientific
research, development and implementation by only Local, State, and
Federal grant awards.
our strategic alliances across the continental United States have one
single, focused, and nationally effecting goal. We intend to lead
this nation into renewable energy independence through
experienced scientific knowledge, technical and logistical know-how.
Although it will require funding to allow for the research and
development; we are specifically a not-for-profit organization focusing
on the science to derive and solve the issues and the goals national
energy independence and then on a global scale.
our goal is “renewable energy independence”. In examination of a
large portion of the available research our findings indicate that we
have over-researched the energy issue by roughly four years.
research indicates that we already have an energy resource as a
renewable material that extensively outperforms corn as a feedstock by
nearly seven-fold. Massive amounts of cellulosic material could be
roughly 90 million acres of Non-Food Producing, marginal acreage
in as little as five years - not to mention the municipal waste that
already exists. Our research further indicates that all of the
existing corn ethanol plants would be able to use the derived cellulosic
based materials with little or NO modifications. In their
utilization of the products of these materials, their production
capacities would be increased two to ten-fold.
With our current research calculations, and with “all things being
equal”, the US could produce enough ethanol to replace the imported oil
for transportation in roughly six-seven years of this writing (2008).
In fact, there will probably be surplus ethanol, well more than the
31.3% replacement as it relates to each gallon of imported crude.
In this case, what we are proposing is completely renewable and includes
Gasoline, Diesel fuel, Jet fuel, and Kerosene alternatives.
However, there are demand, supply, and distribution issues that will
have to mitigated. In fact, we have solutions to mitigate these
issues with existing technology and methods:
Demand; our plan begins by impacting demand by converting as many
of the ~192,000,00 late model EFI vehicles and light duty trucks
into E85 capable Flex Fuel Vehicles (FFVs).
This will bolster a substantial
increase in the demand for
ethanol that is simply not present today and reduce
transportation exhaust emissions
by ~60% - ~90%.
Short term, increasing the demand may also drive the price of
E85 up to where it is unreasonable to use E85 relative to the
cost at the pump which brings us to the
Supply; to counter the demand related
cost issue in
NTEP Project I; the solution
revolves around forming a coalition of the existing “Corn”
ethanol producers to a cellulosic based production and
the production of ethanol in the
U.S. supports or exceeds the demand created by
NTEP Project I.
We will also have to obtain “buy-in” from U.S. oil
companies’ like Marathon to convert their existing service
“islands” into E0-E100 “blending islands”, typically E85;
3. 3. Distribution; is via the eighteen U.S. oil companies such as Marathon
Oil that have modified their station islands into E0-E85

life-cycle of the

with carbon monoxide emissions by as much as 30%, toxics content by
13% (mass) and 21% (potency), and tailpipe fine particulate matter
(PM) emissions by 50% across the nation and eventually the globe.
