Blume on Radio 1/21/15 - 7:20am PT!

Greetings Alcohol Fuelers:

We at IIEA and the Blume Teams are very optimistic about our prospects of implementing key steps for the transformation of our national and global energy matrix in 2015.

We recognize and appreciate all the effort that has gone into bringing us to this point. Though we are not overlooking the work still required to help us put an end to our dependence on toxic and costly (in so many ways) fossil fuels, we do see 2015 as the start of a new era.

Significant changes are in motion. News including the announcement from Cummins Diesel regarding the rollout of its alcohol fuel optimized diesel engines and the Brazilian airline GLO making its initial Florida to Brazil flights powered by alcohol fuel blended fuel (http://ift.tt/1xn7hcz) underscore this observation.

As for our part at IIEA and Blume Distillation, we have great news about the commercial rollout of Blume’s appropriate-scale biorefinery systems. The first Blume plant will be operating soon. By March we will be posting you about the first public Open House demonstration of the system as well as David Blume’s working farm model for producing food, fuel and coproduct development.

Of course the best way to learn about industry change and Blume news is to tune in to the coming “first of 2015” interview with David Blume.

Join David and hosts Brenda Michaels and Rob Spears on Conscious Talk Radio this Wednesday to hear the latest from the man helping bring about our new energy future.


Looking forward to a new energy matrix in 2015:

Join David Blume and hosts: Brenda Michaels and Rob Spears

Wednesday, 1/21/15, 8:20am PT for Conscious Talk Radio.

The discussion will be focused on:

  • How we integrate new approaches to producing abundant food, clean water and fuel into our food supply system.
  • The impact of fossil fuel on health and environment
  • Ways to improve our daily lives and planet with minimal changes that really make a difference
  • Learning the latest about Blume news and progress in accelerating a positive transformation in our energy matrix.
