Biofuel for everyone
Goal: $2,000. Current: $7,294. Finished Jan 28. kickstarter.com/biofuel
Make 5 gallons of biofuel everyday without doing a thing. This 26ft by 14ft robot uses a wind turbine and solar panels to generate the 12kW of energy a day required for the thermal depolymerisation that leads to biomass production and cultivation. It’s even collected and processed mechanically, 365 days a year, and the waste is used as fertiliser back in the growth tanks – there is nothing wasted. You can sell on the biofuel if you don’t use it yourself, so it's win-win.
