Now you can turn organic waste into ethanol right in your own home! Greenhouse (NOT the bar!) and E-Fuel launched its MicroFueler at a party held in the Pacific Palisades home of Greenhouse founder Chris Ursitti. It seems that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were in attendance along with more likely suspects Frances Fisher and Corey Feldman. Producer Jon Sheinberg was also in attendance, he’s a partner in Greenhouse and also on the board of the Environmental Media Association.

According to Greenhouse, the E-Fuel MicroFueler system is a model for energy sustainability. It produces organic fuel, or E-Fuel100, for about two-thirds the cost of gasoline, and can be installed and operated safely at residences or businesses.

Using patented ethanol separation-column technology, the appliance-sized unit produces ethanol and pumps it directly into the consumer’s vehicle. The Greenhouse team delivers raw material and maintains the home-based unit as part of the service package it offers.

I’m not sure how much these babies are gonna cost to actually install in the house but I’m kinda hoping that Heidi and Spencer get one and then make a reality show about it. Wait, not that last part.

Check out the below interview with Chris Ursitti:

    “delivers raw material”?
    ok… let’s get down to basics here…
    what raw materials? how much does the entire system cost? how many gallons of ethanol does it produce in a 24 hour period? At $2 a gallon, how long does it take for the system to pay for itself, so there’s an actual profit generated from the production of the fuel?

    Why not just fuel your natural gas Honda Civic GX at home with Phill (vehicle fueling appliance) with near-zero vehicle tailpipe emissions for much cheaper than gasoline or diesel?

    Why isn’t “Greenhouse” spotlighting Phill?
