You are probably reading those glowing articles about graphene in the scientific journals ever since this amazing discovery in 2009.  Graphene is the “DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY,” the “WONDER MATERIAL” that will impact industries, cultures and society, positively and globally.   Graphene is truly an advanced material!  As you read this report you will see how graphene is going to affect your life both as a consumer and investor.

Welcome to our proven, world-class systems that transform biomass and bio-waste into high-value products, such as top-quality 7D renewable diesel and high quality multi-layer carbon ERA containing graphene. Other valuable products made in this process are wood vinegar and biochar that are used in agriculture. Read on to learn what this graphene revolution is all about and even how you can buy and sell these products yourself.

Starting in 2009 the scientific community went on a mad dash to discover all the incredible uses of graphene.  There was just one little problem.  It cost these labs thousands of dollars to only make a few grams of single-layer graphene.  Only rich research labs could afford to buy it, much less to put it into common everyday items anyone could afford. 

Our equipment can produce tons every day and our prices are low… shockingly low. 

This is an incredible revolutionary substance made of carbon, the atom that is contained in almost everything that exists… including diamonds. So, it is no surprise that graphene is 200 times stronger than steel. And as you know, diamonds are formed from carbon at extremely high temperatures… and so is graphene.

Our patented pyrolysis system uses a unique 1,100o C (or 2,012o F) gasification process to transform forestry products –any sustainable, renewable biomass energy source– like waste products, crop residues, railway ties, cattle manure, and even plastics and tires… into high-value products.  Although it isn’t in production yet, tests have demonstrated that chicken manure, and city garbage can be used. 

Our gasification process heats biomass in absence of oxygen (no combustion), produces energy-dense renewable D7 diesel and multi-layer carbon from wood, plants, and other carbon-based materials.

Due largely to our system’s uniquely high temperatures, our gasification process is unusually clean and “green.” Tars and other contaminants are recirculated back through the system to clean them out. Hence, our systems produce unusually low levels of CO2 – at 1/50th the level of the “clean natural gas” EPA mandate.

Most of the hype about graphene is concerning the single-layer carbon product, which costs a fortune to make, even in very small quantities. But cell phones made from it are already on the market. Our process is different than single-layer carbon deposition on a copper or gold substrate. Our technology creates nano-sized flakes of carbon, anywhere from one layer to 20 layers thick. Our carbon product can be made in tons per day, not grams, and will be used in many industrial products, but not in electronics like the single-layer graphene on a substrate.

Mixing our multi-layer nano-sized carbon flakes into metals and plastics and fabrics will enhance them in ways that are just amazing.  Metals and plastics will be stronger and lighter. This will revolutionize how many future products will be made in our lifetime. 

Before we go on any further, we need to define some terms.  There are four types of graphene on the market today. 

The first is single-layer graphene sprayed on a copper substrate, which is very expensive and is used in electronics.  Samsung, Apple, SanDisk, IBM and others have hundreds of patents concerning one-layer graphene and graphene balls and carbon Nano-tubes.  We are not making this very specialized single-layer graphene at this time.

The seemingly impossible strength of a single molecule layer of graphene

Second, there is the 2-10-layer carbon platelets, which are much cheaper and can be used for industrial uses. 

Third, there are the over 11 layer-Nano-carbon platelets used for industry.  

Fourth, there is a carbon product called biochar and is used on crops to increase crop production.  Our technology creates these last three catagories, but our technology creates a product far superior to what others call biochar. Most biochar is made at 300-6000 F, but our carbon products are made at 2,0120 F.

Lastly, there is something called graphene oxide.  Unfortunately, some producers of graphene oxide are passing it off as high-quality single-layer graphene with incredible properties, when it definitely is not the same thing. Sometimes it’s almost like crushed BBQ briquettes. Buyers Beware! 


My partners and I represent a company that has created graphene in a much cheaper way that can be used in industry… mostly.  About 10% of our graphene is the single-layer type of flakes, not sheets.  Most of our graphene is the second and third type, which sells for 1/2 cent/gram, not $100/gram like single-layer sheets.  1/2 cent/gram X 453 grams/pound = $2.27 for one pound. More information on that below. *

Our second and third types of high-quality carbon have many uses in industry.  It can be used in composite materials (add to Nano-fiberglass or carbon fiber) for sports equipment like:

  • Snow skis,

  • Sport helmets,

  • Fishing rods,

  • Bicycle tires. 

It can also be used in:

  • 3D printing resin for additional strength,

  • Graphene-infused engine oil additive to increase gas mileage up to 30%,

  • Poly-conductive plastics and any product in the nano-fiberglass market. 

Mixed with polymers it makes a ballistic armor (bullet proof) coating. Imagine a coating of this on military vehicles and helicopters. Think about it being woven into textiles.

If you are working in the foam insulation sheeting industry for homes or commercial use, you can add very small amounts of our carbon powder into the foam mix. This make it stronger, raises the R-factor by a factor of 10 and also makes it fireproof.  Our engineers made a sheet of Styrofoam using this foam mixture and exposed the hard foam sheet to a direct flame from a blow torch to see if it would burn.  It didn’t.  It just glowed red! Untreated Styrofoam can be set on fire with a cigarette lighter, so this is a huge plus for home-owners.

If you are in the cement industry, especially pre-stressed concrete, adding our superior carbon powder into the mix will increase the compressive strength, the tensile strength and insulation value considerably.  And it cures in 5 to 7 days, not 28 days as with old-fashioned Portland cement.  And its water resistance also makes this mix ideal for wet locations.  We haven’t tested it yet for freeze/thaw resistance, but its superior water resistance indicates that this will be a real help for highways, bridges and foundations in cold regions like northern Canada and Alaska.


Actually, we do not have a price list or a minimum or maximum order.  Our reasonably-priced high quality carbon is available in very small and very large quantities, whether in grams or tons. Once several more plants are working, it will be available in huge quantities every day.

The point to be made here is… relatively speaking, our carbon products have the highest quality and lowest prices on the market.  And we can sell it by the pound or by the ton… so-to-speak.

Whatever your need… we can make it better for you


Our very reasonable pricing is based on volume and formulation, usually on a case by case basis.  Our engineers will work with your company engineers to run tests to determine what the best formulation is for your particular product.  In some special cases our engineers will even give a few grams to universities and commercial labs to run tests with. Most tests only require a few grams

If you have been saying, “I will try high quality carbon ERA when the prices come down,” well, they are down! As low as $2.27 per POUND [price relative to size of order, etc*]. Now is the time to try it!!

If you are ready to be a “first adopter” and intend to get ahead of the crowd, just send us an email.  Those who are catching the vision are saying, “Count me in, this advancement will increase the quality, monetary value and profitability of my products.”

If you don’t know much about single-layer graphene or high-quality multi-layer carbon ERA just Google those topics and you will find hundreds of articles about the exciting future for graphene and high-quality multi-layer carbon ERA. Do your research, then, come back and talk to our engineers to discuss what carbon ERA formula you are developing and then order some for your company’s R & D department.   Make some sample products using the addition of our carbon ERA powders and see the improvements in your product.  

There is more to the story, so watch for the next blog that tells about all the other products our multi-layer carbons can improve and give you the competitive edge in your market sector.

The two other major products are an extremely high grade 7D Green renewable diesel fuel, and electricity. Our reactors can generate electricity for the whole plant operation in areas where there is no electricity available (Forest. Island). However, in most cases we use grid electricity to run everything.
