Essentially, the Company has three principal businesses. They are its traditional oil and gas activities, its royalty holdings and its Biofuels Project. They have, during the past 20-years, provided in excess of $13,000,000 to conduct the R&D effort to commercialize its second business, the commercial development of its Biofuels Technology, designed to economically solve the critical problem of disposing of Municipal Waste through the 100% recycle of Municipal Waste into useful products saleable at a profit.
Management of the Company believes its R&D efforts have produced trade secret and know-how protection which, in the future, should produce valuable patent protection to the Company's technologies from the Company's long experience and work conducted at its former "Research Center" in Utah.
Based on its R&D efforts, the Company believes the Biofuels Project would be the first business to economically produce ethanol transportation fuel from low-cost organic cellulosic materials ("Celmat") consisting of mostly paper products easily harvested from Municipal Waste through new generation enviro-friendly manufacturing plants fed by Municipal Waste, which plants would combine recycling, electric power and ethanol fuel production at several regional Biofuels Plant sites.
The Company further believes that its innovative Biofuels Technology would create a profit generating solution for three major contemporary domestic issues. First, it would provide an opportunity to significantly reduce the volume of Municipal Waste that currently must be landfilled or incinerated. Second, it offers a low-cost method of producing ethanol fuel, the only known commercially viable and publicly accepted renewable low- polluting transportation fuel that the Company believes someday will compete in price at the pump with gasoline. Third, it offers a low-cost method of producing electric power from clean burning lignin fuel. The reason for such optimism is the high Tip Fee currently paid by eastern U.S. municipalities to landfills and to incinerators for the disposal of Municipal Waste.
