Renewable Energy Products

A short list of GET's products are: motor oils, wheel and glass cleaners, rain repellents, engine oils, tile and grout cleaners, and odor eliminators.

G-Oil

G-Oil replaces the petrochemical base of traditional oil products with a renewable bio-base called tallow; it is sustainable and can be collected domestically with grown beef, pork, and chicken fat.

At a molecular level, the G-Oil bio-base material has a low temperature of operation and high degree of stability. It shows little or no reactivity, with additives for its natural properties, similar to petrochemical oils and lubricants.

G-Oil meets standards set by the American Petroleum Institute (API) for the API TC rating. Because the proprietary process used to make the biological base material in G-Oil imparts synthetic and petroleum “oil-like” properties, only limited quantities of commercially available additives are used to make the material meet or exceed the API TC rating.

Animal Fat

Green Earth’s demand for domestic animal fat is kept below the supply calculated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which reports that the United States produces 9.6 billion pounds of beef, pork and chicken fat. Green Earth Technologies uses a fraction of the total fat to manufacture enough G-Oil base biological material. [2][3][4]

G-Marine

G-MARINE G-Oil and other marine products are blends of plant derived, water based biodegradable ingredients.

Fuel Spill Cleaner

Fuel Spill Clean UP! (aka G-Marine OSC-1809 Oil & Fuel Spill Clean-UP) is environment safe, formulated to emulsify and encapsulate fuel spills, suppressing volatile organic compounds and rendering flammable fuels non-flammable, while preventing ignition or re-ignition of fuels and oils during spill clean-up. It is also compliant with OPA 90 as a deck side emulsifier.

Financials

GET filed form 10 with the SEC. The company has received two separate investments from Techtronic Industries North America; the first was in June and the second in December, both of 2009.

On Tuesday, February 16, 2010 GET filed its SEC Quarterly Report[5]

American Le Mans Series

In 2009, Green Earth Technologies signed a two-year deal naming G-OIL the "official motor oil of The American Le Mans Series (ALMS) and the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA)."

Gunnar Racing

On March 15, 2010 GET announced a signed deal with Gunnar Racing to create a Green Earth Team Gunnar (GETG) race car at the ALMS.
