The rollout of emissions free oil begins…in Keele

It’s finally happening. The rollout which our editors James Allen and Eoin Treacy have been on about for months.

And their stock tips are responding nicely too.

I’m talking about emissions-free oil. And not the shoddy sort we covered in Friday’s Daily Blitz.

The emissions-free oil that James and Eoin focus on is the real deal. And I want to update you on some of the ways it’s already hitting your energy needs this year. Because if those work, it could go global. With Britain leading the way on many fronts.

At Keele University, they’re adding the new emissions-free oil to the natural gas network. What they call “blending” allows a significant cut to emissions without any consumers changing much of anything. (The university canteen’s staff reckon it’s made no difference to their hob work.)

At 20%, you don’t need to fiddle with the existing gas infrastructure to feed 100 homes and 30 university buildings. The Italians are way behind, at just 5% in their own attempt, which recently doubled to 10%.

With heating accounting for half of the UK’s energy consumption and one third of its carbon emissions, and 83% of homes using gas for that heating, it’s a big shift in the making. One that’s been underway for a few days now – the point I’m making today.

But Eoin Treacy reckons he has a better way to profit. Find out what it is here.

In fact, the government is considering legislation which requires all new boiler purchases to be able to burn the new oil as well as gas! That’s according to the Times. It’d mean paying about £50 more for your boiler and one compliant model is already on the market. Mine already sounds like a rocket anyway…

A 20% blend across Britain would be the same as taking 2.5 million cars off the road according to the BBC, but without anyone noticing much of a difference. Which do you prefer, because it looks like we’ll be forced to make such choices?

Over in Cheshire, they’re going to turn plastic into “road fuel quality” emissions-free oil. And that’s just one of the many ways to do it. Using food scraps and coal are others. On Friday I suggested my own idea.

That’s the supply side of things. What about demand? Last year saw 40% growth in the amount of fuel cells that use emission-free oil. “If the 2010s can be seen as the breakout decade for the battery, the 2020s will see the ascendancy of the fuel cell,” said one tech director.

The Japanese have been on to this for a while, in a typical way. When you use emissions-free oil in a fuel cell, you get three things, none of which are carbon emissions. You get heat, electricity and water. The Japanese use two of the three – they use the heat for homes and electricity to power them. I’m not sure what happens to the water to be honest, but you get the idea.

So far, tens of thousands of units have been installed in homes around Japan. My in-laws’ home is not one of them, unless they don’t work very well. In the town of Harumi, which you’ll probably hear about during the upcoming Olympics, emissions-free oil has been fully integrated into the energy network.

The Japanese like the new oil for a simple reason. They don’t have much renewable energy resources. Which makes it tough to go green. Especially after Fukushima but by buying the new oil from places like Australia, they can use the new oil without any emissions while outsourcing the real challenge of how to produce the stuff.

In California, 26,000 forklifts use the new oil and so do NASA’s rockets. The biggest boom is in China, where it’s less hard to wean people off the existing infrastructure that doesn’t exist yet there. There’s even a drone using the stuff to fly in Canada, designed by a team in the basement of Imperial College in London. And a few weeks ago, some scientists claimed that black holes are powered by the new oil too.

All of this news I’ve pointed out is from the last two or three weeks alone. That’s an incredible acceleration. If Britain can continue to be a leader in the area with efforts like in Keele, the coming boom could be very impressive. And fast.

The best way to profit from all this is obvious, if you ask me. First floor apartments and houses, which sit alongside major roads in major cities. Currently selling at a discount because of noise and air pollution from vehicles, these homes will soon return to the premium value they held before the age of lifts.

But Eoin Treacy reckons he has a better way to profit. Find out what it is here.

Until next time,
