Utah-based biodiesel firm launches crowdfunding campaign

By Ron Kotrba | July 17, 2015

Logan, Utah-based Argo Fuels announced it is launching an Idiegogo crowdfunding campaign July 21 to raise money for the purchase of feedstock and preparation for large-scale biodiesel production using its NanoCatalyst fuel processor.

The company describes its NanoCatalyst fuel unit as a distilling processor utilizing a high-pressure, supercritical solid metal catalyst reactor that reaches full reaction in minutes and make biodiesel for one-third the cost of traditional reactors using high-FFA feedstock such as brown grease. It says the process is scalable and portable, and the entire processor with an 8 MMgy capacity can be packed into a 40-foot shipping container.

“The potential benefits from the NanoCatalyst are incredible,” said Ray Dellinger, founder and CEO of Argo Fuels and inventor of the NanoCatalyst Processor. “If consumers want a safe, high-quality alternative to petroleum-based diesel, this project paves the way for clean fuel, cleaner air, and sustainable energy that doesn't break the bank. Our entire company is focused on bringing clean fuel innovation to communities. Just like we hope to ship our processors all over the world, we hope that individuals will feel empowered to make a difference by participating in our Indiegogo campaign.”

Argo Fuels was founded by Dellinger in California in 2010. The crowdfunding campaign will run July 21 through Aug. 18.
