GRC Microwave Converts Waste to Fuel

Global Resource Corp's HAWK recycler extracts oil and gas in seconds from most everyday objects like tires, plastic cups, as well as from shale, coal, and tar sands. Microwaves tuned to an optimum frequency separate the component parts which can be burned or condensed into liquid fuel, using only a small portion of the energy produced.

GRC’s Patent Pending discoveries encompass many years of research and development working in high frequencies of microwave (RF) identifying specific frequencies most suitable for the target substance. The microwave frequences are applied in linear acceleration with molecular excitation of polar molecules intrinsic to hydrocarbons and other carbon materials. The process can also be used for extracting heavy oil from capped-off oil wells.

The first commercial plant is under construction. Available Production unit expected in early 2008.

Featured as a 2007 innovation of the year in Popular Science and Time magazines.

How it Works

Image:FrankPringle HawkHogan PopSci2007 200.jpg

In the microwave, under vacuum, the ground up tire is gassified, removing all the hydrocarbons, leaving carbon black behind, which is a salable product, used for making dyes and tires. The input tire loses ~60% of its weight, turning into gases and oil (mostly in the dieself fuel range). The products are sulfur free.

Quoting from

"To everything there is a frequency that excites its molecules best. Just like the 2450MHz frequency magnetron in your kitchen microwave oven which is specific to water (H2O) molecules, GRC’s hydrocarbon specific frequencies are generated by much higher RF klystrons that actually crack the hydrocarbon chain into its characteristic fuels.

"By definition it is not pyrolysis because cracking the hydrocarbon chain is inherent to specific frequencies and has little to do with the amount of heat generated. The process however is done without water and performed in an oxygen starved environment. We call this technology: High-Frequency Attenuating Wave Kinetics or HAWK for short.

"There is also no CO2 or CO produced in the process because there is no oxidation other than possibly a miniscule amount that may be pre-existing in the material or minerals processed. GRC’s vacuum environment creates an accelerated pressure thereby assimilating what Mother Nature has done through countless years to make fuels.

"The two basic elements offered for all GRC’s applications are insitu and offsitu. We have designed klystron machinery for gasifying hydrocarbons where they exist or in fabricated systems. In-situ meaning processed deep in the ground, rock formations or anywhere naturally occurring and off-situ meaning processed above ground that is mined or material removed from site.

"A klystron is a microwave electron tube with velocity modulation that is different from magnetrons. Its uses were privy to military applications for radar jamming before stealth technologies became more dominant in later years. GRC is the first to commercialize this technology and by modifying amplifiers and power supplies to suit our applications, we now possess the technology that will free America from foreign oil imports."

Converting rubber and plastic to oil and gas - Global Resource Corporation (GRC) is reducing plastics back to oil and combustible gas using 1200 different frequencies within the microwave range, which act on specific hydrocarbon materials. This video demonstrates taking 100 grams of ground up tires and turning it into oil and gas (mostly diesel range). (YouTube June 28, 2007)

QualityStocks Daily Video 03/01/2007 - Global Resource Corp announced today that performance tests to convert bituminous coal into kerosene without using any additives. The process was invented in 1923 but has never been completed without additives and a required heat source, which is now replaced by GBRC's patent-pending microwave technology.

Company: Global Resource Corp

"Global Resource Corporation is a Worldwide Petroleum Research, Engineering, Development, and Manufacturing Company that thinks outside the box and is responsible for bringing innovation and new technologies to the petrochemical industries where we offer many proprietary solutions in Enhanced Oil & Energy Recovery Processes."

"Global Resource Corp. has a patent pending process that allows for removal of oil and alternative petroleum products at very low cost from various resources, including shale deposits, tar sands, waste oil streams and bituminous coal with significantly greater yields and lower costs than are available utilizing existing known technologies. The process uses specific frequencies of microwave radiation to extract oils and alternative petroleum products from secondary raw materials, and is expected to dramatically reduce the cost for oil and gas recovery from a variety of unconventional hydrocarbon resources. GBRC's technology will not only be developed to extract oil from shale, but from depleted oil fields in the US and elsewhere, many of which still contain more than half of the hydrocarbons originally in these fields, because the residual hydrocarbons are too viscous to extract with conventional technology."

Inventor: Frank Pringle

Mr. Frank Pringle began work identifying Specific Microwave Frequencies in 1996 while working to separate ceramics from bulk glass cullet systems. Since the, and mainly over the past seven years, Mr. Pringle has identified over 1200 specific RF microwave frequencies intrinsic to hydrocarbon elements/materials.

Frank Pringle has found a way to squeeze oil and gas from just about anything - The machine is a microwave emitter that extracts the petroleum and gas hidden inside everyday objects—or at least anything made with hydrocarbons, which, it turns out, is most of what’s around you.

Recovering Lost Oil - Frank Pringle, CEO of Global Resource Corp., has developed an emissions-free process that uses microwaves to pull fuel out of shale rock, tires and even plastic bottles. The extraction technology might also help recover oil that is stuck in muck inside hundreds of capped wells across the country. (Time "Best inventions of the year" 2007)

Recyclers hope to bring microwave tech to Arizona - Envirotech Industries, has formed a joint venture with a California group, Huntington Renewable Energy, that wants to buy a giant microwave machines from New Jersey to "cook" the tires into heating oil, natural gas, carbon and steel, all of which would be recycled. (AZ Republic Dec. 26, 2007)

Pushes Peak Oil Curve Way Back

On Jan. 17, 2008, New Energy Congress member, Congress:Founder:Sterling D. Allan wrote:

These guys absolutely belong in our Congress:Top 100 Technologies -- RD (there are there now). They are turning waste to energy and much more -- getting fuel from sources previously inplausible, including abandoned wells. These guys have an amazing technology. It's downside is that it doesn't move us away from burning polluting fuels. It does push the peak oil curve way back, by over 100 years.
