Our Cat-HTR™ process delivers one of the highest Greenhouse Gas ('GHG') reductions in the advanced biofuel sector.
Our technology is proven across a wide range of biomass residual and waste streams to produce low carbon biofuel.
Our biocrude (a renewable and sustainable bio oil for the circular economy) has about an 80% or greater lower carbon intensity than fossil-fuel-based gasoline and diesel.
The biocrude ( a renewable and sustainable bio oil for the circular economy) from our hydrothermal liquefaction process is proven to be of higher quality than pyrolysis oil.
Benefits of our high-value, low-carbon, renewable biocrude (compared to pyrolosis oil) include:
Our Cat-HTR™ process, as applied to biomass, achieves among the highest GHG reductions and energy values of any thermochemical biofuel process. With lower operating temperatures than pyrolysis, HTL has a lower carbon footprint.
By using water as the agent of change, our Cat-HTR™ HTL process can easily accommodate moisture in biomass, and produce biocrude (a renewable and sustainable bio oil for the circular economy) from a much wider range of feedstocks.
By utilising landfill-diverted biomass pellets as feedstock for our process, we create additional environmental benefit versus wood pellets, due to the avoidance of methane emissions.
Using wood pellet feedstock instead of conventional oil to produce transportation fuels has greater than two times the GHG impact relative to displacing coal for power generation.
The combination of landfill avoidance and the production of low carbon and renewable transportation fuels will be an important contributor in achieving ambitious emission targets around the world.
