Mr. Banuelos is a highly motivated professional entrepreneur with over 30 years of experience in business startup and administrative business disciplines. His visionary strengths were a major factor in integrating strategies that made these companies successful. In 2004, Mr. Banuelos administered and funded a research and development company in renewable energy development working with engineers and scientists to reduce landfill footprints through steam injection at Miramar Landfill in San Diego, CA. His work continued with N-TEK Energy and engineers from the University of Utah on a proprietary design converting syngas into a liquid fuel. A catalyst was designed to turn landfill gas to a liquid fuel, (DME), and other biofuels containing no sulfur.
Mr. Banuelos continued with N-TEK Energy, with Alan Neves as the chief engineer on a proprietary downdraft gasification process for processing different waste streams. Ruben was also privileged to work on several highly advanced generator systems that were designed for military application with Dr. Marius Paul of Universal Power Systems, a retired chief scientist for the Department of Defense. He worked on applications known as the Hyperbaric Engine whose power output can reach up to 900 hp from a 3-liter engine, along with proven science that could increase the power output of a 10MW turbine to 6X additional output. Mr. Banuelos is working with scientists and engineers to deploy technology applications that are now ready for market. His experience in this field of renewable energy will bring benefits to the growth of GreenTek as a renewable energy company.
