About Us

>  About Us

At Easy Energy Systems (EES) we are passionate about providing dynamic solutions to our world's energy problems. With this common purpose we are building an ecosystem of the best people, partners and customers to bring forth innovative technologies that will produce high-quality and efficient biofuels, valuable biochemicals, adhesives, fertilizers, animal feed and more.

EES designs, manufacturers, operates and sells patented 1M, 2M, and 5M gallon per year, small-scale, modular biorefineries called Modular Energy Production Systems (MEPS®) for the production of alternative liquid biofuels from organic waste streams. MEPS® biofuels can be mixed with, or can selectively replace, gasoline derived from fossil fuels. Our systems are centrally manufactured and can be shipped anywhere in the world, thus we are able to bring new energy sources to locations that would otherwise not have access to it.

EES has manufacturing, R&D and testing facilities in Welcome, Minnesota and Emmetsburg, Iowa with executive offices located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our Emmetsburg location houses our operational testing MEPS® system where we have proven that our process can economically convert various biowastes to biofuels at the same cost per gallon as the large biorefineries and at a CAPEX per gallon that is even lower than those large biorefineries can demonstrate. Moreover, this facility is also used to integrate and test other technologies and feedstocks which have been instrumental to our success.

Our mission is to innovate and bring to the market new solutions and technology that will reduce the dependency on fossil fuels, reduce pollution and improve the lives of people throughout the world. We intend to become the worldwide leader in "distributed small scale biowaste to energy systems".
