Revitalization and Restoration

For Fuel Freedom
Lasting Community Transformation

Our company For Fuel Freedom (3F Inc Biofuels) is established in the Western United States where ethanol had been in short supply.  When we come into a community, we make cities self-sufficient with local dollars that substantially remain local, provide surplus for civic improvements and city services, create jobs and respect for the community, benefit local business economic development and bring affordable health benefits, encourage educational vision and advances in science, as well as raise the standard of hope and excellence in families, media, and society, for lasting community transformation.

We do that with our Super-cellulosicSM Hybrid Ethanol and Bio-dieselSM renewable fuel system, restoring the atmosphere of the community through economic and environmental change.  Each part of the process has been independently proven and the calculations for the combined process has been verified to yield ethanol from vegetation over twice as much as switchgrass and sugarcane, 3 times over and above corn, and 4 times more than other cellulose technologies.  Simply put, we use the energy from the ethanol distillery and CO2 from power plants to grow algae that in turn will double the output of ethanol, and then we use organisms in the process of breaking down that material, in a way that also can be recycled into ethanol as well.

We believe refineries like ours will encourage the small business to bring their influence and investment, generate economic development through ongoing tax revenue, promote the community’s image using the wealth and political power of the region, enhance the quality of life with the advent of jobs and programs, advance economically and environmentally conscious development projects, and beautify the community through influx of Revenue.  Therefore, we do not follow industry recommendations; we must pioneer the next-generation of standards.  (For 3F's philosophy on community impact, take a look at Ideals.)

We do not do this because it is easy, rather because it is the level of responsibility that the next generation requires of its leaders.  For, it is not sufficient to promote conservation programs, when are a nation of extravagant consumers.  It is not sufficient to decry the need to become carbon neutral, when our trading partners outsource to those who abuse their carbon footprint.  It is not sufficient to use renewable energy, when our industry pollutes with disposable energy.  It is not sufficient to revitalize communities after the landfills are gone, when communities must destroy ecologies in the process.  For Fuel Freedom, along with its subsidiaries and partners, actively seeks to implement carbon-negative and accelerating-energy technologies.

Local Economy
Beyond The Fuel Industry

When New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina, there was a chain reaction that caused America to go into even a greater oil supply crisis.  Originally, refineries had been placed regionally to service vast amounts of consumers and industry.  Due to the short supply of oil locally, it is not the oil but it’s the time it takes to refine the oil that’s the problem.  Many regions in the Southern states were not stocked with sufficient fuel following the disaster leaving a logistical nightmare.  Gasoline prices then skyrocketed all over the country because there was no local fuel source.

When Corn became king of ethanol production in the U.S., it peaked early.  Economists predicted Corn Ethanol would have an economic threshold of 15% of our nation’s fuel demand.  Corn Ethanol is not eco-friendly because it is a fossil-fuel equipment-intensive crop in terms of seeding, cultivating, and harvesting, with an energy balance of 1.3.  For that reason, Corn Ethanol is only profitable in large quantities together with its grain byproducts.  As a result, rising grain prices affected beef, dairy, and flour in several related markets in 2007.  In comparison, the energy balance of most cellulosic ethanol technologies is only 0.8 – 2.  The American dilemma has been finding a form of Ethanol that is both economic and eco-friendly.

When Auto manufacturers in Detroit started probing into producing alternative fuel vehicles back in 1995, they were not aware of the pending corn boondoggle.  Over 35 models of flex-fuel vehicles were experimented on, and over half of those production lines were distributed throughout the Midwest.  Initially, 850 gas stations across 13 states followed suit, providing ethanol fuel pumps close to America’s heartland.  Flex-fuel vehicles can run on any type of ethanol or gasoline, but our nation’s infrastructure needs a fuel that is commercially available nationwide.

And therefore, America has need of a decentralized fuel distribution network.  Cellulosic Ethanol can be made from most any organic substance, such as trash.  Trash is more than a cropless source of organics, it is environmentally sound to remove it for the production of alternative fuel.  Since trash is somewhat expensive to transport, most communities have landfills within a day’s travel.  It makes sense to mine ethanol where the landfills are and support the local economy.

With that, our vision is to use all of the renewable energy and green ecologies of trash mining and take none of the centralized and limited economics of corn.

Hire Locally
We Support the Community

We recognize the need for cities to generate revenue within the community for sustained growth and economic development.  Local revenue streams usually are in a constant flux as a city ages and new business centers emerge, forcing the community to devote considerable resources to revitalization to entice business back.  In major metropolitan areas, that inner city dynamic can be a different tax base and jurisdiction, forcing cities to compete for revenue.  Cities struggle to recover property tax revenues and attempt to bolster spending following unforeseeable calamities, economic conditions, or terror plots.  America has stood strong in the face of Tech Stocks, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, Southwest Wildfires, and the Housing Bubble in recent years.  Local communities desire to bring in companies that contribute to their economic security.

When we say we support the local community, we stand by our dedication.  We start with hiring locally.  Our company policy is to search for qualified local residents within the greater metropolitan area in the vicinity of the Biorefinery to fill open positions there.  We start with a core target location, and expand our search to concentric areas of proximity until the need is met.  The benefits of such a policy extend beyond pure demographics.  It may be obvious how shorter commute time promotes support of local area business, but other externalities such as indirect reduction of vehicle collisions as a result of the traffic reduction also affect the local economy.

For Fuel Freedom seeks diversity by finding the best representative group.  We hire with demographics in mind, and create an internal culture that is not unlike the surrounding community.  For example, our Board of Directors at the time of founding began with ½ Women and ¼ Latinos.  Now should a landfill, material recycling facility, or other waste collection center serve more than one community, we will strive to find a representative culture of those communities.

We work with cities to promote a greater sense of community and belonging by involving their citizenry.  For example, we will bring mentoring to any employee that desires advancement.  By assigning a mentor, the employee benefits from a friendlier work environment, the company benefits from a better employee, and the community benefits from the mobility.  We also encourage employees to participate in local ecological and humanitarian efforts in some form.  We offer employees automatic charitable distribution with preference to programs for the Homeless, Single Parents, Adoption, and Widows.  For security purposes, we specifically exclude organizations that seek gain or harm as a means of ascension, purification, or pleasure.

When we hire locally, we advertise with the local community in mind.  We make every attempt to consult with local planners prior to advertising and include slogans and images that is in keeping with the local culture and aspirations.  By doing so, the community is served by self-promotion and continuity.

Produce Locally
We Shape the Community

The community is the basic building block of our nation.  Our nation was founded upon principles that out of a sense of community emerges the family, the economics, the electorate, the church, the jury, the militia.  As our economics and demographics evolve, a sense of what is a community has changed significantly.  In many large cities across the nation, there are homeowners who are not familiar with their neighbors, there are tenants who do not associate with others in their apartment, and co-workers who simply mind their own business.  Now, in some places that is good policy simply because specific conditions do not permit the risk of interaction on that level.  However, this sense of minimal involvement has begun to infiltrate smaller cities and rural communities to the point we have begun to lose our collective identity amidst the drudges of everyday living.

When we say we participate in shaping the local community, we mean that we make an effort to resist the external pressures that cause isolation.  We start by avoiding outsourcing to the greatest extent possible.  Although certain technical components cannot be manufactured locally, we do design the Ethanol Mill locally.  We accomplish this by working with civic leaders and planners to accommodate the needs of their specific community.  We maintain careful adherence to local regulation and permitting as well as keep in mind local stigmas that often are not mandated.  From details concerning eco-friendly design to disposal traffic requirements, each phase of construction is designed uniquely to fit the community in which the unit will be placed.  Although the overall design of an Ethanol distillery is standard and many of our environmental processes streamlined, the size of the Ethanol Mill is custom design-built to match the logistics and population particulars of the landfill and its customers.

We are committed to producing locally.  That means we will seek out local funding and establish our facilities in reasonable proximity to the landfill that serves the community associated with it.  We will go to great lengths to preserve the right of the community to not have to pay landfill closure fees for the amount of organics diverted to our process.  We will also stake our preference for locally produced organic solid waste when possible.  And, we will work with local agencies to remove the liquefied organics that are often the source of toxic plumes trough our recycling mining techniques.

By producing locally, we maintain camaraderie with the community.  For it is not merely working with the community when we set up our plant, but it is our continued presence that makes the difference.  That means we are reducing air pollutants, preventing well-water effluents, preserving local habitats, creating jobs, sustaining local economies, and making a difference in the lives of local citizens.

We do not stop there when shaping the community.  Fuel for Freedom contributes to the Chamber of Commerce and other local organizations.  We encourage our employees to maintain their relationship with the community through their local school districts, market nights, food banks, environmental awareness, domestic safety workshops, and church events when they aide the community.  Our presence means restoration of the community, return of the local wealth, and revitalization of the city.

Distribute Locally
We Supply the Community

The lifeblood of any community is the city in which it is founded upon.  In metropolitan areas, most cities are interconnected to the greater community through a network of highways, supply networks, and forms of collaboration.  Oftentimes these greater communities consist of bedroom communities, commuter hubs, and work centers.  When smaller cities lack infrastructure, its citizens must look outside its borders to find supplies.  This interconnectivity between cities worked well when communities found chains of stores to carry hard-to-stock items.  Then when warehouse-style markets started carrying non-luxury items at discount prices, the result strained local businesses.  There must be a mechanism to restore local revenues.

We believe in supplying the community where we produce.  Cities often look for means of generating additional revenues and ways to reduce spending.  One program we support is combining the funding of the Ethanol Mill with the purchase of a modest amount of flex-fuel vehicles for use by city personnel.  Fleets can be purchased through bond issue or other civic funding method.  Either way, this enables the city to purchase our fuel at a discount, thereby saving thousands of dollars a year in fuel costs.  When partnering with city municipalities, cities also can make money off of the sale of the fuel sold within the greater community.

Local supply of alternative fuel is crucial during times of economic crisis.  Our nation’s key commodity is petroleum, but we are no longer the major suppliers of our own economy.  Although it is true that most of our oil comes from Canada, its price structure is based on Middle East production.  In addition, our nation’s refineries are regional and are often affected by local catastrophes.  America’s economic security depends on both our ability to decentralize our fuel supply and to reduce reliance on foreign oil.

Distributing locally means providing the greater community with the fuel created from its own backyard.  Infrastructure is typically not an issue, because ethanol can be used as a gasoline additive or sold separately.  There are thousands of fuel pumps nationwide that are dedicated to ethanol according to the Department of Energy who keeps track of alternative fuel suppliers.  When there is insufficient local infrastructure for distribution, For Fuel Freedom’s assessment of the existing demand as well as the potential for increased use will be used to create awareness and change.
