Las Vegas, Nevada, Energy Quest, Inc. formally Syngas International Corp. OTCBB SYNI, announces the completion of its company restructuring. Plans are to begin immediately production of electrical power generation, methanol, ethanol and butanol from feed stocks such as wood waste, industrial wastes, agricultural wastes and low cost abundant lignite coal. Energy Quest plans to employ unique gasification and catalytic conversion processes to produce clean fuels. Energy Quest’s mission is to implement new technologies to solve CO² emissions problems today.
Butanol is a 4-carbon alcohol that can be manufactured from grains or from cellulose–that is—-plant matter. Unlike ethanol, you can make butanol from corn, or the cornstalk, or any other plant, or even plant-based trash, like paper.
The BTU content of butanol is common knowledge to everyone familiar with the fuel.. It contains about 92% of the content of gasoline but gets slightly better gas mileage because it burns very cleanly, producing no NOX, SOX or carbon monoxide and produces more engine torque. It is also safer to handle than either gasoline or ethanol.
