Rentech-SilvaGas Biomass Gasification Process
Rentech-SilvaGas Biomass Gasification Process is a patented, commercially proven, gasification technology with over $100 million invested in technology and assets. The gasifier can process a wide variety of cellulosic feedstocks to produce syngas. The syngas can be used to produce renewable power or it can be processed through our Rentech Process or other third-party fuel conversion technologies to produce drop-in, certified, renewable fuels. The gasifier had successfully operated in Burlington, VT for over 2 years in partnership with the Department of Energy (DOE), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Battelle Columbus Laboratory.
Rentech-ClearFuels Biomass Gasification Process
The Rentech-ClearFuels biomass gasification technology produces hydrogen as well as syngas from cellulosic feedstocks through the use of a High Efficiency Hydrothermal Reformer (HEHTR). The syngas can be used to
produce renewable power or be processed through Rentech's technology or other third-party fuel conversion technology to produce renewable drop-in fuels. The Rentech-ClearFuels technology has operated at pilot scale in excess of 10,000 hours and multiple third parties, including Idaho National Laboratory and Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, have independently validated the results of the pilot scale data. The Rentech-ClearFuels technology has been proven at demonstration scale at Rentech's Energy Technology Center in Commerce City, CO through a $23 million grant received from the U.S. Department of Energy under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
