I went to the website: http://www.alphakat.de He is basically claiming a lower temperature (270-350 C) catalytic synfuel reactor conversion process of waste organic materials to biodiesel. The gist of it is the development of patented catalyst as the key to process. He also implies that the system is low pressure and has been tested on a wide range of feedstocks, and the site seems to suggest that he has a pilot plant running, though I can’t find any direct mention of it.
To be frank though, if he hadn’t told a German reporter he using dead cats as fuel, I’m not sure he would be making the US press. The English language version of website was extremely difficult to plow through. And there is not enough information on site to validate any of the claims. Just goes to show how far afield the search for new fuels gets.
