In Shocking Systemic Failure, Ivy Graduate Does Something Useful With Life

As we know, the purpose of a Stutts education is to gain a patina of culture and erudition before you head off to Wall Street to destroy the world economy. Yet to the embarrassment of everyone at Stutts, Jason Aramburu '07 has somehow escaped and started Ecovolve, a company that aims to optimize the production of biochar and energy via biomass. A worthwhile interview with Aramburu is available at Biopact.

I see he's making charcoal and distilling of the vapors to make bio oil. Have they sold many of these machines? Price?

I have an ever growing, ever widening pile of horseshit(and now have 44 cows contributing to the pile) in the front yard that I'm sure would make some fine biochar for the garden, (too rich to put on raw) and a D2 cat that could possibly burn the oil. A small machine may do the trick. I'll look for a number to call at the link, THANX.
