ClearRefining Chronicle

Current News

With the recent dramatic changes in the global petroleum markets and at a time where the news is full of alternative fuel companies that have failed, our Company is growing. This has required both a dramatic internal change in focus as well as an external change in presentation of vision. Some of these changes have been easy, some hard, and some have gone unnoticed all together. Sure we have a new look, new logo, and in the next few weeks we will launch a new website, but the truly important changes have been internal.

Rather than focusing on a single product (GDiesel®) in a single market (Reno), we are focusing all of our attention on becoming a global technology and solutions provider. This not-so-subtle change in direction is based on the simple truth that the ClearRefining® technology platform can provide benefits to many products in many markets. We firmly believe that the true value of our Company lies in the technology and not in a single product. Needless to say, we are in no way abandoning GDiesel® or the years of positive technological proof-of-concept that we have undertaken. In fact, we are working hard to finalize the investment package to build a new state-of-the-art GDiesel® facility in Southern Nevada and a second sister facility in Montreal, Canada. We are also working with several world-renowned companies on upgrading our equipment, process, and process controls. At the same time, the Company has been approached by national and international fuel companies who wish to explore the efficacy of the ClearRefining® Technology on their various fuel products. Recently we signed a development agreement with one of these companies in the Netherlands.

In the last two months we have rebranded, shifted mindsets, further reduced costs and proved that although smaller in size, we are stronger than we have ever been.

Message From the Management

With new direction comes new responsibilities. One thing that must remain consistent, however, is quality. In the early 1990’s tennis superstar Andrei Agassi reminded us that “Image is Everything” and the same still holds true today. The better all of us present ourselves, the better our customers and suppliers will work with us towards success. Focusing on quality in everything from workmanship to how we conduct ourselves and how we communicate is the easiest way to bolster our image. Let’s make Andrei proud!

Safety Corner

When you think of summer you probably think of camping, swimming, long walks with your pets, laying out in the sun, mowing lawns, and every other fun outdoor activity. What you don’t think about is how to maintain safety while enjoying these activities. Before leaving the house think to yourself “Am I protecting my family, pets, or myself to the best of my ability?” Did you know that in the United States the CDC openly admits that there are over 300,000 undiagnosed cases of Lyme disease per year? Did you know that most professionals are saying this is understated by 2/3? Do you know how to protect you family from the known AND the unknown? Follow these few simple steps and it could save somebody you love: Before heading outside apply sunscreen with at least SPF 15; wear a wide brimmed hat; if venturing into tick habitat then a combination of both DEET for skin and permethrin on clothing might be considered; take frequent water breaks; never leave kids or pets unattended in a vehicle; follow instructions and warning labels on any equipment and do not exceed typical consumer use; know the signs of heat-related illness (high body temp, headache, dizziness, rapid pulse, nausea, confusion, and/or unconsciousness).
