The IIEA, in collaboration with Project Gaia, will host a seminar on Appropriate-scale Alcohol Fuel Production in Atlanta, Georgia November 29 to December 2, 2010. The 3 and a half day educational seminar will focus on small-scale alcohol fuel production and global solutions for cooking, refrigeration, electricity and transport. These small scale units can be installed for domestic fuel production and consumption as well as provide unique production opportunities to solve household energy shortages internationally.
IIEA Founder David Blume has been a leading expert and advocate of ethanol fuel since the 1970’s. His book, “Alcohol Can Be a Gas!,” is a wealth of information regarding the sustainable production and uses of alcohol fuels. The seminar will cover various fields including the technical aspects of distillation and ethanol’s role in food security, job creation and reducing environmental degradation. These issues will be addressed in an all-day intensive workshop. Attendees will be able to discuss opportunities to invest in and manufacture alcohol fuel microdistilleries to achieve local production and distribution systems.
Project Gaia aims to promote alcohol fuels as a clean, safe and affordable energy alternative to traditional cooking solutions in the developing world by collaborating with David Blume and the IIEA.
