Solena Fuels is Converting Urban Waste to Drop-in fuels

Solena Fuels specializes in the conversion of non recyclable urban waste to drop-in fuels. It’s headquarter is in  Washington, USA. Feedstock Solena Fuels feedstock utilizes heterogeneous biomass. The non recyclable urban waste including garbage, wood waste and agricultural waste can be used in Selena’s process interchangeably. These wastes otherwise do not find any taker and are destined to go to landfills.  Solena Fuels Integrated Biomass-Gas to Liquid (IBGTL) Technology Solena’s IBGTL technology to convert low carbon bearing organic waste into fuels is based […]

Fuel From Halophytic Microalgae: Muradel

South Australia based Muradel Pty Ltd produces drop- in fuel from halophytic microalgae. Its trademark process produces “green crude” which upon fractionation yields drop-in substitutes of fossil fuels. The company was founded in Dec 2010 as a joint venture between the Murdoch University, Adelaide Research and Innovation Pty Ltd and SQC Pty Ltd. Feedstocks Muradel uses rapidly growing halophytic microalgae, biomass and organic waste streams. Their non competence with arable land and food chain as well as their low fresh […]

Cool Planet Energy Systems: Biogasoline from Biomass

Cool Planet Energy Systems has it’s headquarter in Greenwood Village, Colorado, United states. Its proprietary process for conversion of biomass into biogasoline involves thermo-mechanical fractionation of biomass and catalytic treatment of the resultant volatile components. The  biochar  CoolTerra™ is the byproduct of the process. The company claims that it is able to produce 1 gallon of biogasoline with operating costs of $1.00 to $1.15. Feedstock The technology is flexible for biomass sources such as corn stover, wood chips and non-food energy crops such […]

Virent Inc.

Virent is Madison, Wisconsin, United States based Sugars to renewable fuel producer company . It has received fuel registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its Gasoline which can now be used in 45% blend in cars and trucks.

Blue Petroleum from Microalgae

Bio Fuel systems (BFS) Bio Fuel systems (BFS) is Alicante Spain based microalgal biofuel producer company. The biocrude oil from its proprietary microalgal species is named as ‘Blue Petroleum’ and the industrial plant of the company is called ‘Blue Petroleum ONE’. BFS has developed and patented accelerated conversion systems to convert CO2 into energy. Blue Petroleum BFS utilizes autotrophic phytoplankton, also known as microalgae, to convert the sunlight and carbon dioxide into drop-in fuels. The phytoplankton is grown in glass tubes […]

Algae Biofuel from Solazyme Inc.

Solazyme Inc. is South San Francisco, California, United States based algae biofuel producer company. Technology: Dark Fermentation Solazyme’s proprietary technology utilizes the oil producing ability of heterotrophic microalgae through their fermentation in the dark. This means that microalgae are fermented without the access to sunlight inside huge stainless-steel fermentors. The ingredients necessary for their growth are provided to them externally. This is a unique feature of Solazyme’s biofuel production technology. It is in contrast to the generally employed technology in algae […]

Drop in fuels from lignocellulosic biomass

  What does ‘drop in fuel’ mean?                              A drop in fuel is a liquid hydrocarbon fuel with physicochemical properties very similar to fossil fuels. It is capable of replacing the traditional gasoline, diesel and jet fuels up to any extent. The existing automobile engines and fuel storage and distribution infrastructure cannot make out any difference between a drop in fuel and its traditional fossil fuel counterpart. […]
