The company has developed a low cost technology that refines vegetable oils into a direct replica of diesel fuel. Unlike biodiesel, this is a hydrocarbon and is a direct, drop in replacement for today’s petroleum derived diesel fuels.
The technology is unique in that it requires no external inputs like methanol or hydrogen, so refining can be done on a fully distributed basis.
The reactor is small scale and is totally self-powered from its own refining byproducts. The company’s reactors are designed to be extremely easy to operate and manufacture. Each reactor is capable of producing 50,000 gallon per year of renewable diesel and reactors are low cost to manufacture.
