Pacific Alterative Energy Resource
LLC, A California Limited Liability Company, has
developed a new division named
"PAER AG" which is focused on sourcing and
procuring non alternative energy commodities with a
particular focus on California agriculture products.
The decision is based on PAER's
strategic location in the Central Valley which is
California's agricultural powerhouse; and further
derived from customer requests in assisting with
procuring and managing the sourcing of agriculture
products from California. PAER AG will begin
working with products like tree nuts, fruits, grains, dairy
products, tomatoes, wine/grapes and will endeavor to
further develop alternative energy solutions by directly
working with farmers and/or companies to develop and
grow alternative energy feedstocks within California,
with the goal of supporting and providing local feedstock
solutions to regional alternative energy companies.
If you are in the alternative/renewable energy market, whether you are a supplier, producer or consumer, we want to hear from you.

News Articles of interest posted by PAER staff (below):
PAER's Managing Member was on a US panel of speakers discussing cultural and business exchanges between China and USA. PAER
had the opportunity to discuss merging cultures and trade between China and US with particular emphasis on renewable and alternative energy, specifically
with the City of Rizhao in Shandong Province, which has achieved
significant utilization of solar energy and performed substantial ecological improvements (see below for details).
Pictured is the broadcast image on the China side, displayed in front of a Rizhao studio audience. CCTV is a world wide network with 1.4 billion viewers in China alone. PAER was honored to be a part of this cultural exchange and grateful for the new friends and business contacts we have developed. PAER looks forward to continued cooperation in developing trade relations with China. Currently PAER is working on exporting alternative energy products, wine and agricultural products to China, and we look forward to expanding these existing efforts as well as developing new business opportunities.
California Renewable Energy Transmission Initiative (RETI):
California has adopted energy policies that require substantial
increases in the generation of electricity from renewable resources.
Extensive improvements, however, are needed to California's electric
transmission infrastructure to get the electricity generated by new
renewable power facilities to consumers.
PAER NOTE: one of the big problems facing renewable (electricity) generation in California is getting a air resources permit. PAER is reviewing and discussing products and technologies which address air pollution (scrubber, filters, etc) and will share this information with companies seeking to reduce their air pollution. If your company is in this line of business or has products which reduce air pollution, especially from biomass and biofuels equipment, please contact us here:
Some time back we reported that EU imposed steep penalties and import duties of $.86 to $1.36 per gallon on US biodiesel-
Effective March 13 2009.
The European Union said it will impose
temporary import duties on US biodiesel, to offset the
$1 per gallon biodiesel subsidy paid to US producers by
the federal government.
Reuters is reporting that duties have been assessed on a
company-by-company basis and include: ArcherDaniels
Midland, 86 cents per gallon; Cargill, 90 cents;
Imperium Renewables, 96 cents; Green Earth Energy Fuels,
93 cents; World Energy Alternatives, 96 cents; Peter
Cremer North America and remaining biodiesel producers
will pay $1.36 per gallon.
Now they are going after
Indonesia and Argentina, with proposed tariffs as high as $300 to $340
per MT. Seems to us that European producers, likely due to absurdly high
taxes, cannot compete with global producers:
duties on Argentina and Indonesian biodiesel high enought to halt imports.
Recovery Act & Biomass
The American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) presents
opportunities for the advancement of biomass
technologies. Signed into law by President Obama on
February 17, 2009, the Recovery Act is an unprecedented
effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions
of jobs, and focus on addressing long-neglected
challenges so our country can thrive in the twenty-first
In a bold move, san Francisco has green lighted a project to build a large processing facility for turning the cities over 2.5 million gallons of brown trap grease into biodiesel.
The process is designed to handle almost any waste product imaginable, including turkey offal, tires, plastic bottles, harbor-dredged muck, old computers, municipal garbage, cornstalks, paper-pulp effluent, infectious medical waste, oil-refinery residues, even biological weapons such as anthrax spores. According to Brian Appel, chairman and CEO of Changing World Technologies, waste goes in one end and comes out the other as three products, all valuable and environmentally benign: high-quality oil, clean-burning gas, and purified minerals that can be used as fuels, fertilizers, or specialty chemicals for manufacturing.
Changing World Technologies has been working for several years to develop and fine tune this technology, and it really is amazing.

Warning, the turkey parts pictures are
a bit grisly.
