Technical & scientific research
Blume Distillation in Watsonville, California is led by Permaculturist David Blume who has created a demonstration site with 13 habitats showing how low input, non food crops (like cassava) can be utilized as feedstock for creating clean-burning, high content alcohol fuels for heating and to replace fossil fuels in vehicles. Two sizes of stills designed, built & delivered to large or small communities provide a full array of energy, water and food solutions. Only 20% of the feedstock is needed to produce the alcohol fuel (what the earliest cars ran on) and the remaining organic by-products are used for aquaponics, fertlizers, and to create water purification and catchment systems. Blume's systems are gaining popularity and sales in developing countries; a cargo container with everything needed in the larger system can be shipped and air-lifted off the grid to remote regions. www.blumedistillation.com
