Cities begin producing their own renewable fuel by using sewage sludge.

These are not oil reserve tanks. They are sewage treatment tanks. The fuel of the future for every city around the World. The citizens of the cities contribute to this renewable fuel supply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

As a result of a demonstration project partly sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in cooperation with the Indianapolis Center for Advanced Research, the City of Indianapolis, Indiana, realized a 34% fossil fuel savings by incinerating sewage sludge. At the same time, sludge throughput was increased 10%. In addition to these proven savings, operational downtime for repairs was reduced, maintenance costs were reduced, and air pollution was reduced. The air pollution reduction allowed Indianapolis to cancel a $3,000,000 construction program for air pollution abatement.

Other cities incinerating sewage sludge in the United States that have initiated the fuel efficient mode of operation have saved even more fuel than Indianapolis. Nashville, Tennessee, reduced its fossil fuel usage 40%; Buffalo, New York, reduced its fossil fuel usage by 47% from design expectations; Hartford, Connecticut, reduced its fossil fuel usage by 51%; and Jacksonville, Florida has reduced its fossil fuel usage by over 50%.

These savings result from installing additional instrumentation and controls (often not required at newer facilities), modifying the incinerator operating methods, and training the operators to operate the facilities more efficiently. At Indianapolis, it cost $20,000 per incinerator for instrumentation and operator training. This was an older plant and required a maximum amount of new controls and instrumentation; however, the payback for this $20,000 was less than three months due to the reduction in fossil fuel use based on an oil price of $0.264 per litre ($1.00 per gallon). In the other cities where instrumentation controls were adequate, the cost for developing the now operating mode and training the operators averaged $75,000 per city.

Sludge is a huge environmental problem all over the world but it doesn’t have to be as we now have the know how and technology to turn this problem into a clean energy solution. Not only does this create a new energy source for all major cities around the World it also cleans up the environment. The more we use sewage sludge as a renewable fuel the cleaner our water supply becomes. We can actually clean up our lakes and rivers by using sewage sludge as a fuel source.

H2O Fuel

H2O Fuels

Cold fission - the definition of fission is – splitting or breaking up into “parts”. Electrolysis of water is cold fission. It splits water (H2O) into Hydrogen gas (H2) and Oxygen (O). Hydrogen is a clean burning fuel. There are no environmental bi-products or side effects (zero carbon emissions, zero toxicity, zero tailings, zero watershed contamination, zero earthquake inducing fracking) associated with burning a hydrogen (H2) gas fuel. When we split the hydrogen (H2) from the water (H2O) we are left with Oxygen. Something we and every other living creature on Earth needs to live.

Free unlimited EM Energy


Six feet above the ground (above head height) the air is charged with more than 200 volts positive of free energy.  This free energy is available day and night, 365 days a year and for millenniums.   That 200 volts + charged air is a source of free, unlimited, unmetered and carbon-free electrical energy.   The free energy is electromagnetic (EM) energy.  It can and has already been tapped into by World renowned scientists such as Nikola Tesla and Henry Moray.   Both tapped into this infinite supply of pure, zero emission electrical energy using a simple antenna. The Egyptian Pyramids were actually built as electrical power generating plants – not tombs. They were built to receive, store and transmit the free electromagnetic energy. The pyramid itself is a very large capacitor – stores electrical energy. They were made of granite (the dielectric or insulator) and sandstone (the quartz crystal electrical conductor) with a capstone (the antenna) made of granite, basalt, or any other very hard stone which was plated with Electrum – alloy of gold and silver, with trace amounts of copper and other electricity conducting metals.

Hydrogen Fuel from Water



FuelReducer H2O Fuel Cell video demonstrates just how easy it is to fuel the World with hydrogen fuel from water instead of oil or gas. Hydrogen (H2) fuel cells are being developed to convert any gasoline fueled vehicle into a hydrogen fueled vehicle that has zero emissions.  Instead of gasoline your vehicle can be fueled with hydrogen that is split from water using a radio wave frequency.  You can use water collected from a stream, pond, lake, river, ocean, ditch, swimming pool, household faucet or rainfall to fuel your vehicle, heat your home, cook your food, and fuel your electrical power generators.     In the video above just 4.5 volts was used to split water into a hydrogen and oxygen gas. Some of the frequencies (F) in hz and Duty Cycle (D) used - F640 D60, F800, D80, F1200. 6 volts would produce considerably more hydrogen gas fuel and 12 volts (just 10% or 1/10 the electrical power needed to power every toxic fluorescent light which requires 120 volts to operate) would produce more than enough hydrogen fuel to power a gas combustion engine like a portable electrical power generator.

Free renewable biofuel



Uganda Africa construction video on how to make your own backyard biogas plant.  Daily gas production capacity of the above constructed digester is 2.6 cubic meters (time stamp 3:23).  That is equivalent to 2600 liters or 16.4  barrels of oil or 687 US liquid gallons.  For comparison an empty 20 lb barbecue propane tank will hold about 4.7 gallons of propane. Biogas can be used to heat your home, cook your food and power gas electric generators.  In the US and Canada you can use your existing prefab concrete or plastic septic tanks and produce your own biogas to fuel your home.  Bury a sealed plastic barrel or tank next to the septic tank and run a plastic tube from the top of your septic tank to the buried sealed plastic barrel or tank.  Then add a propane gas valve and fitting, like the ones from a barbecue, to the top of the sealed buried barrel or tank and you have your very own natural gas supply.

Free natural gas supply


Generate and collect free biogas fuel to fuel your home heating gas furnace, gas fireplace, gas generator, or other gas fueled appliances using your existing septic tank.  The free biogas fuel is generated 24/7 and 365 days a year.  A biogas collector sits on top of your existing septic tank.  Use any large "airtight" plastic or metal container (even a plastic fuel tank) as your biogas collector.  Join the septic tank to the collector using mass produced flexible plumbing tubing.  Run a pipe from the top of the collector to just above ground height. Attach a gas regulator value (like the ones used for barbecues) to the top of pipe to control the gas flow. Fill in with dirt and let mother nature generate a lifetime supply of free ecofriendly biofuel. 

Free Unmetered energy


Above displayed design and concept by © Paul W Kincaid - Generate unmetered AC and DC power simultaneously by coupling the shaft of a farm duty electric motor to the rotor shaft of a generator motor. Add a serpentine pulley to the joined shafts and connect with a belt to an attached alternator and recharge a 12 volt car battery. Running the electric motor power generating system off of a DC 12 volt car battery will recharge the battery as it generates free unmetered AC electrical power. If you use an AC electric motor that runs off AC current (from a wall outlet) connect a mass produced, store bought, power inverter to the alternator's battery output terminal and convert that output voltage (typically 13.8-14.2 volts) into free unmetered 120 volts. Add a switch to cut off the metered power and thereon power the AC motor using only the inverter power. Self Sustaining perpetual Electricity Generating

Need more power than what 1 generator can provide? Simply add another generator to the system using the serpentine belt. Gasoline combustion engines makes use of a serpentine belt to power your auto's accessories as the crankshaft turns. The same belt turns your alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning, water pump and so on. So you can use more than one electric power generator on your electric motor power generating system.
