Eupelix LLC Develops Low Energy, Low Emission Process Of Refining Petroleum

Scientists of Eupelix, LLC have developed an ecologically clean, energy efficient method modifying properties of crude petroleum, including braking down long molecules (cracking) into smaller molecules, at room temperature. 

First demonstration experiments were carried out recently by Eupelix staff with the assistance of researchers from the University of Illinois College of Engineering, the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center and the Illinois State Geological Survey.

Eupelix personnel used high frequency, solid-state pulse generators in proprietary circuits and reactors to produce fast electromagnetic fields which affected the physical and chemical properties of crude oils in large volumes. The process decreased the content of heavy oil fractions, breaking them into more valuable, lighter fractions. There also are decreases in the viscosity and the content of toxic sulfur compounds.

For more than 70 years, traditional thermal cracking processes have been carried out by oil refineries at extremely high temperatures. Temperatures exceeding 500 °C have been used to break heavy oil fractions into lighter fractions to produce gasoline and diesel fuels.

“Using these high temperatures involves the extensive power consumption contributing to the cost of fuels and negative environmental impact,” said Eupelix CEO Dmitri Novikov.

Now important steps in upgrading oils can be accomplished without the use of heat, minimizing energy consumption and the impact on the environment, Novikov said.

Petroleum desulfurization is also an important issue for the oil industry trying to reduce the content of sulfur in the end products. This decreases the environmental toxicity of burned fuels. The new process facilitates desulfurization.

The method uses modern pulse equipment, which has been utilized in applications related to radar modulators, particle accelerators and lasers.

“About a decade ago, the project was in the nascent stage because the pulse equipment was not nearly as efficient as it has become in recent years. Hardly anyone tried applying it for processing of petroleum. ” said Igor Pyzh, Eupelix visiting engineering consultant.

Pyzh came from the Ukraine to assist with test experiments for prospective industrial partners and collaborators in the United States.

Using available powerful pulse equipment, hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil per day can be processed satisfying commercial-scale refining. Pyzh says, it is just a matter ofadjusting the equipment to the kinds of processed oils. This can be done in the new Euplex lab in Illinois.

“There are also other interesting, ecologically clean applications that we are exploring together with our collaborators,” Novikov said.

The major efforts of the company are focused on applying this process to large scale petroleum refining for industrial partners in Illinois, the State of Eupelix registration, and for partners in the Ukraine, the home country of the invention.

The easy-to-use software based OIL & GAS Producer™ generates the required securities offering documents and investor leads, which enable start-up and early stage Oil & Gas producers, Oil & Gas Drillers and Field and Production Engineers raise and manage an unlimited amount of capital for oil and gas acquisition and or production.

CCA is a ten-year-old investment banking advisory firm comprised of Wall Street Investment Bankers, Securities Attorneys and CPAs who invented Financial Architect®, a patent pending system designed to substantially reduce the cost (in time and money) of raising capital, through the selling of securities.

“The goals of Financial Architect®, and the module we’re announcing for oil and gas production companies are simple,” said Timothy Hogan, CCA’s Chairman and CEO. “We want to help entrepreneurs involved in the oil and gas industry to significantly lower the costs and increase the speed of raising equity capital. Just as important, we want to provide oil and gas producers and their professional management teams with an easy-to-use expert system that will enable them to choose the right deal structure for the capital they need, and manage those funds in compliance with federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations.”

“We believe there’s significant and growing demand among entrepreneurs for control over their financing strategies. The software components of Financial Architect® are designed to meet this ‘do-it-yourself’ approach,” he concluded. More importantly, Commonwealth Capital Advisors has developed and now provides

Financial Architect® as the Premier Expert System for start-up, early-stage and seasoned companies, that seek capital. The patent pending, software based, Financial Architect® is a system and method of reducing the cost of raising capital, as so states the abstract of its patent application.

Cost Efficient Way to Heat Homes or Shops This Winter With Wood

With the heat still affecting much of the USA, sitting back in the easy chair in a warm home is probably the last thing homeowners would be thinking about in late September. However, it is time to be thinking of an alternative heating solution for your home. Instead of letting your money go up the chimney, why not look into a forced air wood burning furnace that sits outside.

Scott Bradley an expert in outside wood heaters at Bradley Enterprises suggests that now is the time to be selecting a heater and getting it installed prior to the heating season.

“Now before fall or winter even arrives is the time to be thinking about what to do with those high heating bills you will have coming.” Scott Bradley says, sales manager of Bradley Enterprises in Ozark, Missouri. “Waiting till late fall is not a good option since demand will outstrip supply of outside wood furnaces like last fall and winter. You will be faced with a long wait for a furnace. This could have you installing on a cold winter day instead of a nice fall afternoon.”

If you have access to wood, and live in a mainly rural area an outdoor wood heater would be the ideal alternative heat source for your home or shop. Always be sure and check with your local zoning board to make sure a unit could be installed on your property.

Several factors that will influence the prices of heating oil, propane, natural gas, and electricity in the upcoming winter season October 2007 thru March 2008 include:

1. China and India and other areas of the world have a strong demand for diesel fuel which is similar to home heating oil.

2. Tight crude supply and political unrest in several areas of the world (Middle East tension, Iran, Nigeria just to name a few places).

3. Hurricane related interruptions in supply.

4. A lack of excess production capacity, in the past other areas of the world could make up for production disruptions in another area. Now, with an increase in demand all over the world the excess does not exist.

5. The amount of winter weather we have as transportation of heating oil can be slowed by snowy roads or frozen rivers.

These are just some of the reasons heating your home could be more expensive this winter season. All the different heating source usually follow one another in pricing during a winter season.

Homeowners that are interested in burning wood in a outside wood heater should find them priced from $1400.00 to $7-8000 dollars it will depend on the style, options or size of the heating unit.

More information on outside heating units can be found online very easily by using a search engine like Google or Yahoo. Looking for information by using “outside wood heater, outside wood furnace, outdoor furnace” will bring up a variety of manufacturers product lines.

For more information on the news included in this release (or an interview) contact Scott Bradley or visit www.outsidewoodheater.com.
