Using solar and geothermal to convert coal to oil 
and CO2 to methanol.

We're a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB

Solar & Geothermal-->Coal to Oil-->CO2 to Methanol (Kocol CO2 to CH3OH process)


solar & geothermal-->1 ton of coal-->3 to 4 barrels of oil & CO2-->methanol

John M. Kocol will use commercialized Direct Coal Liquefaction (DCL) technology and commercialized CO2 to methanol technology in the United States and Northern Mexico to build his Kocol coal to oil plants that will also convert carbon dioxide to methanol. A Kocol coal to oil plant is revolutionary because of all the known coal to oil processes, including Fischer-Tropsch, a Kocol coal to oil plant yields 3 to 4 barrels of oil per 1 ton of coal, and a Kocol coal to oil plant also converts the carbon dioxide to methanol instead of using unsafe carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology. There are no other commercial coal to oil plants in the world that can yield 3 to 4 barrels of oil from only 1 ton of coal, and also convert the CO2 to methanol using solar and geothermal energy.

The investment needed to build a Kocol coal to oil plant that can produce 20,000 barrels of crude oil per day that could go directly into a refinery is $2 Billion, and for an additional $100,000,000 John M. Kocol's team of chemists and engineers will convert CO2 to methanol.

Coal to oil conversion is now going forward not backwards

By John M. Kocol, 12/4/11

With Dr. Nathan Lewis's CO2 to methanol conversion technology [on April 12, 2012, Dr. George A. Olah, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1994, became the first person in the world to commercialize CO2 to methanol conversion] using artificial photosynthesis, coal to oil conversion will become very valuable not only from the oil that is produced from that process, but more importantly from the CO2 streams that are created by converting coal to oil.

In my opinion, these carbon dioxide streams will become commodities greatly in demand. CO2 will be turned
into methanol which is one of the cleanest fuels around.
On the other hand, coal to oil conversion would be going backwards if the coal to oil industry decides against converting CO2 to methanol in favor of storing CO2 underground. This would be foolish. For what will we do when the CO2 begins to leak into our clean water supply and into the air?
