Alternative Energy Machine May Double World Food Production

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The single largest year over year
potential increase in the industrial age of food production may occur with the
use of a San Diego based alternative energy company's machinery. Circle
Biodiesel & Ethanol Corporation has announced that their latest patent-pending
machinery design enables previously inedible foods such as toxic strains of
algae and Jatropha to be edible with an operation that can occur in less than
four hours.

CEO Peter Schuh has calculated, using figures based on landmass and ocean
acreage, the potential for the huge increase in production. "Many algae and
other plants that were inedible should now be edible. We believe we are in a
great situation to help on the growing concern for world food production,"
says Peter Schuh.

"We have devised an apparatus and method for the production of humanly edible
food from algae, Jatropha and other currently toxic feedstocks. In the case of
Jatropha, the feedstock is purged of two primary toxins, phorbol esters and
lectin, that give the plant its disease and pest resistance. In the past,
these toxins prevented use in human and animal nutrition," said Allen J.
Schuh, Ph.D.

The procedure was developed by the Schuhs after years of research. The added
ability of producing a protein-rich meal for human and animal consumption
enhances the potential of Jatropha as an economically viable feedstock for
fuel and human consumption. "We believe that many other plants such as Castor
Beans, Jojoba Beans, and Indian Beech can be detoxified with this apparatus
and methodology, and then safely eaten," said Schuh.

The final edible product is suitable for storage or consumption. It is rich in
nutrients and protein and relatively low in carbohydrates and fats. In
preprocessing, the carbohydrates are removed for ethanol production, and the
oil is removed for biodiesel production. The oil-less cake has the texture of
soy meal and can be used as a substitute for soy meal in various recipes,
including pastry, desserts, soups, salads, or as a main course.

Those wishing to work with Circlebio to manufacture and distribute the
apparatus should contact the firm at 760-579-9885, to schedule a consultation
and visit, where Schuh will work with you directly.
