INVEST IN GELF ENERGY CORP. TODAY!
The market for hydrogen fuel is expected to grow to an estimated $11 trillion. The patented Microbial Energy Device will compete in this rapidly expanding market.*
The Microbial Energy System is a unique technology train that produces green hydrogen by integrating carbon capture, water purification, and waste repurposing technologies with the patented Microbial Energy Device.
We are in various stages of negotiations with national and state agencies for economic development and transportation, local municipalities, and agriculture. There is a broad range of applications and potential customers for this breakthrough technology solution.
The world needs to transition to clean, renewable energy sources. GELF Energy's mission is to accelerate this transition and make a positive impact on our planet’s environment by developing and commercializing advanced environmental technologies. Our Microbial Energy System uses food and sewage waste that could end up in landfills and waterways, and transforms it into clean hydrogen and renewable electricity. This unique combination of technologies has been developed by a team of twelve award-winning scientists who are experts in the fields of environmental engineering, biotechnology, and wastewater management.
GELF Energy’s leadership team is made up of highly accomplished scientists, wastewater experts, and experienced business leaders who are committed to advancing the world’s clean energy transition.
GELF Energy has an exclusive, worldwide license to the intellectual property critical to the operation of the Microbial Energy Device. For additional information regarding the terms of the exclusive license please see the offering memorandum.
The waste-to-energy industry uses a process called anaerobic digestion to produce natural gas from sewage and food waste. With our Microbial Energy System, we make it possible to produce commercial electricity and hydrogen from waste at new levels of efficiency without emitting greenhouse gasses and other harmful pollutants. With this round of fundraising, we plan to scale the Microbial Energy System to pilot-stage quantities in an active wastewater treatment plant. This will demonstrate the amount of renewable electricity and green hydrogen that will be produced to be commercially viable.
The Problem & Our solution
Today’s Anaerobic Digesters are inefficient, taking 30-60 days to generate natural gas. And, more than half of the waste’s potential energy is left untapped. They also lack carbon capture technology and produce a byproduct called digestate that emits fugitive greenhouse gas and often ends up in landfills.
Our Microbial Energy Device improves the speed and efficiency of anaerobic digestion, producing an estimated 2 to 3 times more electricity in approximately 1/5th of the time. Our design integrates carbon capture, ultrapure water purification, and waste repurposing technologies to produce green hydrogen. Unlike our competitors, with our fully integrated system, we are able to produce multiple forms of renewable energy depending on the customer’s needs, including hydrogen, ammonia, renewable natural gas, and electricity. All of it derived from sewage and food waste.

GELF Energy has an exclusive license to use patented technology to repurpose sewage and food waste into clean, renewable electricity and green hydrogen.
His involvement with technology and environmental science began after he nearly died from a bacterial infection contracted after surfing in polluted waters. It took several years to recover, but after he did, he devoted his life to learning how to repurpose waste into energy products solving some of the most difficult environmental challenges facing the world today. His quest to create energy from waste using advanced science resonated with university researchers and scientists whose life's work intersected with Brett's vision.
During the past seven years, Brett has made it his mission to build an expert science and business team, scale the technologies, and make it a commercially viable energy solution. Using his background in finance and science he developed a financially profitable business model for both waste producers and energy providers. Brett created GELF Energy to bring the Microbial Energy System technology to market while accelerating the transition to clean, green hydrogen from harmful fossil fuels.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.
