Global Energy’s vision is to develop sustainable, distributed sources of liquid fuels that advance the local economic and environmental interests of the world’s urban and rural communities. Toward this end, Global Energy continuously sources proof-of-concept technologies and selectively commercializes them with the assistance of strategic partners and institutional investors.
Global Energy believes that producing local fuels from local feedstocks for local consumption achieves an ongoing virtuous cycle whereby economic and environmental interests synergistically reinforce one another
Diesel fuel is comprised of two of basic elements: carbon and hydrogen hence the general term “hydrocarbons” used to describe a range of gaseous, liquid and solid substances, one of which is diesel fuel. Typically, diesel fuel is derived from oil that required 100’s of millions of years for Mother Nature to form and is therefore considered a depleting resource.
However, since carbon and hydrogen are present in everything that grows, the ability to derive these elements from organic materials and to assemble them into diesel fuel would represent a “renewable” source of energy.
Today, Global Energy in partnership with a major US corporation is in the final stages of commercializing the KDV process to produce “renewable” diesel fuel. Developed and patented by Dr. Christian Koch, a senior Siemens scientist for thirty years, the KDV process utilizes a proprietary, catalytic depolymerization process to convert materials containing carbon and hydrogen into diesel fuel.
Inspired by Mother Nature, Dr. Koch combined ubiquitous, natural catalysts with a novel, friction turbine to replicate in minutes what once took 100’s of millions of years.
