We'll sell our M15 (a mixture of 15% methanol and 85% gasoline) fuel across the USA, Canada and Mexico at our ACM FUEL, M15 filling stations, and some of our gasoline will be manufactured from methanol via ExxonMobil's Methanol to Gasoline (MTG) process.  Utilizing renewable methanol and recycling carbon dioxide will bring energy independence to North America without making any significant changes to our energy infrastructure. To learn more about carbon utilization and renewable methanol, read "Beyond Oil and Gas: The Methanol Economy," by George A. Olah, Alain Goeppert, and G.K. Surya Prakash. Meanwhile, as a HUBZone-certified, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), KOCOL LLC seeks $1 Billion in grants from the U.S. (Other Transaction Authority [OTA] agreements), Canadian and Mexican governments for the construction of our ACM FUEL, M15 stations; these grants will also be utilized for the manufacturing of our M15 fuel, and for gasoline and oil made from American coal and methanol. Our methanol, petroleum and gasoline products will be proudly Made in the USA.

ACM FUEL,  American-Canadian-Mexican fuel company, is a KOCOL LLC Brand.

ACM FUEL Founder, John M. Kocol, ALM Harvard, Thesis: "Federal Reserve Expansion in Mexico" with Dr. John Womack Jr. as Thesis Director, is the inventor of Portable Kocol Coal to Oil & CO2 to Methanol Plants (TM).


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, Canada 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 the CO2 to methanol.

*John will still use some FT processes.

"With coal to oil, you're going backwards, with 
CO2 to methanol, you're going forward." 
Dr. Nathan Lewis's comments to John M. Kocol 
at the Harvard Club of Washington, 4/14/11


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?
