Re: GulfTex Environmental Services

Every few years, it seems, another company surfaces with claims that they can transform garbage into gold using their "patented" technology.  GulfTex appears to be the latest with their Pulverizer Air Dryer.  I suspect that this undescribed technology has been purchased or licensed from the owners of the Vortex Dehydration System (VDS) that has been described here:  http://www.vortexdehydration.com/ 

I have called and talked with John "Whit" Davis at VDS but he danced around my request to visit a plant in NC that supposedly has an operational system for processing dead chickens.  Supposedly it's at a Cagle's plant.  Nor would he give me data on the cost of energy per ton of "saleable" product generated by the VDS.  

Please review carefully all the pages at www.vortexdehydration.com before you start dreaming about earning millions of dollars.  When something appears to be too good to be true it probably isn't.  About 4 years ago a company called Hydromex made similar claims for transforming hazardous wastes into saleable products.  They too were seeking investors.  Today their website has closed.   Remember folks, safety lies in performing due diligence.

Greetings P2Techers - 
Many months ago I received the following message from John Teague,
President of GulfTex Environmental Services in Texas, regarding a
potential business opportunity.  I have remained in contact with John
over the past few months, but I was unable to take on this opportunity
Specifically, GulfTex is looking for people to sell this technology in
the southeastern U.S. and - I presume - possibly other regions of the
U.S. and world.  I thought someone out there might be
interested+qualified or know someone who might be?  At the very least, I
thought some of you might want to be aware of this technology could it
be of possible use.
Please see below for a technology and business model as well as the
positions that they are looking to fill (as of last December).  For more
details, please contact John at:  john_teague@msn.com

Ms. Seeh,

I read information about you in GreenBiz posting and was impressed by
your background and experience.

There is a good chance we can be of help to each other.  We have a
technology that could have a major impact in most basic industries and
are looking for the key initial " rainmakers " for each of five initial
industries to expand  as rapidly as we can. If you could be of
assistance, we would propose to work initially on a Finders Fee basis,
but this could grow into a fulltime regional representative position
with us from your present base in North Carolina.  Your pending MBA and
environmental background could be of assistance to us both.

Our company is a rapidly expanding firm in the
finance/design/build/operate environmental technologies market. We
constantly seek opportunities as well as the management to oversee them.


Residue reduction, handling and disposal is still the single largest
operating costs for industrial, agricultural, municipal,  recycle and
other process recovery systems. Our combination of the three
technologies below provides us up to a 5 to 1 operating cost and a 2 to
1 capital costs advantage over the closest competition.

DEWATERING ( Proven Commercial Stage )

Operating Costs: Our technology can thicken a beginning 0.25 % Solids to
an end 10 % Solids with no polymers added, allowing us to operate at 25
% of the cost of the nearest competition.

Capital Costs: There will be no capital costs to the customer. We supply
it on a wet ton toll basis. A 300 to 400 wet tons per day is less than
one half of the cost of the nearest competition.

DRYING: ( Proven Commercial Stage )

Operating Costs: Our patented Pulverizer Air Dryer ( " PAD " )
technology dries/reduces any 15 % TO 18 % Solids sludge to a 90 % or
greater  Solids powder at less than $ 2.00 per wet ton electrical power
cost versus the
competitor's $ 10 to $ 25 / wet ton thermal BTU cost.

Capital Costs: There will be no capital costs to the customer. We supply
it on a wet ton toll basis. Our 10 wet ton / hour unit costs less than
one fifth of the next closest technology's.

DESALINATION: ( Development Stage )

Operating Costs: Our technology has the potential to remove 95 % to 98 %
of all dissolved solids in wastewater or water at an operating cost of
less than $ 0.25 per thousand gallons. The solids can come out in the
form of dry
powder with less than 10 % moisture.

Capital Costs: There will be no capital costs to the customer. We will
supply it on a wet ton toll basis. One 50 GPM unit is $ 75,000 and uses
a 10 HP motor

MOBILITY / COMPACTNESS One 45 foot trailer for each of the three

We operated a 75,000 ton/year demo plant in Denton, Texas, from August,
2000, through March, 2001. We then moved this unit and customized it for
a Pulp and Paper Mill application in Louisiana. We now have a PAD
operating at the
Heartland Grain ethanol mill in Huron, SD. We are looking to commence
international operations with upcoming projects in Asia, Europe and
South America.

For example, in the ethanol industry, we can save the typical mill over
$ 2 MM per year while reducing their emissions by 85 % AND produce an
end product with 20 to 50 % higher end value.

Another example, we are forming a JV with Hercules Inc wherein Hercules
will represent our technology in the 485 paper mills worldwide which
they service. They anticipate placing 18 PADs over the next 24 months
with the potential for substantial acceleration during and after that
time. Similar JV's are under discussion with a major industry player in
each of the food, mining and dredging industries.

We have immediate upcoming projects throughout Canada and the USA. Our
technology was one of those chosen by NC State University out of over
425 technologies worldwide they evaluated for the solution to the hog
problem in the state.


Our growth plans are tied to a management structure very similar to a
franchise but without the investment requirement. In the USA, we have
chosen to set up the USA market in 10 regions in parallel with the US
EPA 10-region system. In Canada, we are setting it up as two regions. In
Europe, we will probably consider it as one region and then deal with
the separate applications as separate regional operations.

For example, we would probably set up one regional support center to
handle the Middle Eastern market for all three applications.

National Applications Managers ( " NAM " ), by taking charge, organizing
and setting up the 10 to 12 regions for any one of the twenty proven
applications, will have the opportunity to earn by sweat equity an
annual dividend
ranging from the mid to high 7 figure range. The low figure will apply
if the PAD technology is used only for the drying application. The high
figure will apply if the NAM helps develop an after market for the end
products coming from the PAD.  

Regional Managers ( " RM " ) , hired by the NAM, helping to set up the
support structure for 20 to 40 such plants as described below, also earn
their sweat equity ownership with the opportunity to earn up to a mid 6
figure range dividend over a 5-year period. Each of these 20 to 40
plants will be the same as starting a new company from scratch, with all
the attendant start-up challenges.

Each 25,000 to 75,000 ton/year plant will be set up with a Local
Manager, hired by the RM, earning a sweat equity 15 % of the plant by
performance he agrees to in advance. He can earn a mid 6 to low 7 figure
dividend or more for this
five year contract period. This Local Manager will be married to the
plant - 60 of the most intense months ever experienced before if we have
the right person for the job.

Each region will have a Regional Marketing Manager, also hired by the
RM, earn a salary and commission for products and services sold in that

All of these positions have a competitive salary and benefits in
addition to the equity earnings. All will have extensive management
support in the startup stage. Please review our website www.gulftex.net 
<http://www.gulftex.net/>   and then if any of this has interest to you,
please email me with any initial questions you may have.

Thank you for your time and attention.
