Can Ethanol power farming AND save money?
Brad Holen, President | bholen@terravantage.net
Why isn’t your farming fuel home grown?
#1 cost is fuel?
Where
we started

Why Brazil?
What we proved
92,000 Irrigation Wells
What if we developed an engine to power these wells instead of importing diesel?
..2009.......
Successfuly Developed an engine to run on 100% Ethanol
Over 50% of these wells are powered by Imported Diesel
Sold 300 in the United States
...2010............2011............2012............2013.............2014..............2015..............
1
Determine if an Engine running on Ethanol will have the durability required to equal the Diesel Powered Motobomba.
2
Determine if there are even greater cost efficiencies available by running the Ethanol Engine at 2400 RPM.
3
Determine if the maintenance cost of the Ethanol Engine will be equal to or less than the Diesel Powered Engine.
4
5
Determine if an Ethanol Engine can be supplied in a Price to Value format.

Water shut-off at 2330 rpm, 0 m3/h, 47% load, gives 14,5 kg/cm2 water pressure, 40,05 l/h  alcohol consumption.
2330 rpm, 186 m3/h, 84% load, gives 14,4 kg/cm2 water pressure, 63,04 l/h alcohol consumption and speed stays at 2330 rpm.
