moving forward on my plant to fuel processes
by the end of the winter I should have a full write up and followable plan to make nearly all plastics and a number of electronic material replacements using plastic instead of the harsh dangerous chemicals we use today for making electronic parts from, with added advantages, all that can be made with start up chemicals and supplies to allow us to build the needed systems from naturally occurring resources in our surrounding environment so as to become self sufficient. The one step anyone here who wants to help with would be figuring out what plants can and which ones can not be digested by yeast, I think Oak tree parts would be possible no's on that list as the tannic acid I think will kill the yeast. The first step on this process is to be able to produce alcohol from a variety of plant mass materials while extracting the remaining biomass from the yeast tank to use as nearly complete compost for growing more plants.
I am looking at using Kudzu, due to its incredibly fast nature to convert carbon from the air into plant mass, so it will make a solid air scrubbing system, lowering the carbon emissions and turning them into something useful since it can be eaten by both human and animal stock, (I think the chickens can eat the seeds and I am sure it will produce a large quantity of them)
The important thing to be considered with Kudzu is containment as once it gets loose it will destroy everything by growing all over it, so a place that has a good yearly freeze is required as that is the only thing it can not over come. seeds die, roots die, so it will have to either be maintained in a green house in those portions of the years allowing nature to cut it down to a manageable level each winter, or gather seeds and save them in the warmth of our homes during the winter months, and replant each year. So this is not a good plant to chose from for say a group planning on starting up in say florida or geogia. (though chances are there will be plenty of it nearby already that could be harvested both to be paid for controlling it, and to convert it into useable resources that will constantly replenish itself,)
anyone wanting to discuss this further let me know.
