Robert Fulton III-Founder-CEO & Practical Engineer (a distant descendent of Robert Fulton, the 19th century Practical Engineer of steamboat fame) has a varied background.  Starting work, in 2008, on biomass based fuel technology Mr. Fulton created a revolutionary process for converting algae and certain other plant matter into a highly combustible, fluidizable, powdered fuel. All with off the shelf production equipment. Practical Engineering produced a Photo Bioreactor (PBR) for use in Turkey. In concert with Metalcraft Technologies, Inc. CCA designed a Photo Bioreactor that uses off the shelf materials. The PBR design is cost competitive with other available designs, easier to deploy, and can be manufactured anywhere in the world today.
