Sullivan Generators has fascinated and confounded me for the past week and a half. Ever since the press release for this week's Shark Tank was released, I have been trying to find something about this company/inventor/product online. I am not having any luck.
The press release for this entrepreneur states: “a versatile inventor from San Antonio, TX must prove to the Sharks the waste products created by his 100-foot tall generator can be transformed into gold.” If that doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what will! What the heck is this all about?
I went searching online and found- nothing. There is no news out of San Antonio about a local inventor going on the Shark Tank. There is no news about any kind of generator that is 100 feet tall. There is no one named Sullivan screaming from the proverbial rooftops about being on Shark Tank this week. I searched for hours online and found no evidence of any kind of product fitting this description. The closest I came was a guy in Ireland who burned his apartment down trying to turn his own feces into gold.
I must say, if a guy comes into the Shark Tank and can literally turn waste into gold, we may see Kevin O'Leary sell his soul to the devil on TV! My guess is this is a very technical invention that takes some sort of by product and creates energy from it. There are many such products in development ranging from trapping methane gas from landfills to using heat from compost piles to capturing energy from warm waste water discharge from nuclear energy plants to power some sort of generator. I couldn't find a Sullivan Generator in the bunch.
There are two possibilities here. Either this invention really works and was somehow funded, resulting in secret, undisclosed production, or the inventor is a complete crack pot like the guy from Ireland. Whichever it is, this is the first time I have found nothing on an entrepreneur in the week prior to the show.
If I find anything about this, I will most certainly post it. If any readers have any information on the Sullivan Generator that appears on this week's Shark Tank, please let us know.
