The Universal Biomass Solution

Abstract

Farm to Flame Energy manufacturers biomass powered electrical generators capable of using any feed stock. We solve the problem of energy insecurity in developing areas with abundant agricultural waste.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Hospitals, Hotels, Schools, Utilities Companies, Motorcross Arenas (anyone who needs cheap and reliable electricity).

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

We are tackling the expensive and dirty solution of diesel by providing a cheap alternative based on abundances of agricultural waste that people already have.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

We are able to source agricultural waste close to the sites of our generators and grind the fuel in our own facility in order to ensure quality control. Our process is also smokeless and odorless, and can use any crop waste feed stock to generate electricity.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

We have veteran technology leads such as those at Factory Unlocked (ex-Nasa Engineers) around us to help with manufacturing. The dust control, blue combustion flame, and power-production will be optimized. We will work with Kazeem Bello, our financial lead in Nigeria who owns many real estate properties to reach out to many and provide effective sales pipelines with a concentrated region to expand our technology and service. We have done cost benefit analysis to ensure that the collection of our ag-waste and it’s transportation to our fuel processing plant will be worthwhile. We also have the fundraising talent. Because of the inertia I provided at a conference last semester, Will secured a 1.2 million dollar letter of intent for which they want us to start on the project in April. We make a good team by filling in for strengths and weaknesses like tech and business (we also never lose when we're on the same basketball team).
