Wow.......The "farm level" sounds extremely interesting. I've got 5 acres here, so I should be able to produce what....4.5 million gallons per year. Tho I would be perfectly content with about 100 gallons per month.
Any idea as to what the catalyst is?

My sister in law works there as a financial aid councilor maybe Ill shoot her an email and see if they would share. They have filed a patent so it will be public shortly I am sure there is a way to adapt this to small scale private production.
Sounds very close to Fabmans pulse mixer that he came up with a good while back. I dont get yet how they are getting away from the Koh or NaOh. That would be great then. Invest invest invest buy stock hurry up.

The video says they are using a Sulfated Metal Oxide Catalyst instead of KOH or NaOH for the catalyst. If I understand their process correctly it sounds like the Sulfated Metal Oxide Catalyst is a form of solid acid catalyst. If this is correct then that also explains why they are not producing any soap since they are not using any bases such as KOH or NaOH. I wonder how much energy it takes to reach the operating temps and pressures for the process to work?
