Come on by, burn some free fuel, learn how to do it right from the pro's. This is a free class in alternative fuels.

There is no known date to when Acytl will be available in the US again. Our method of producing required calicium carbide and a arc furnace, with a temp of 3000 (C). It's a tricky process, and very dependent on the same grade of calcium carbide. With our only plant offline, no one knows when we'll be back up to speed - so best to learn from the pro's how to get by without.

This looks like an ad to me, no ads on the forum there is a place for them, not in the threads.
