Fulcrum Sierra Biofuels to Employ Praxair HOB Tech. (Ind. Report)
Praxair,Fulcrum Bioenergy
Date: 2018-11-19
Linde plc wholly owned subsidiary Praxair, Inc.reports it has inked a long-term agreement to supply oxygen (O2) to Fulcrum BioEnergy's Sierra BioFuels plant which is presently under construction in Storey County, Nevada. Under the terms of the agreement, Praxair will also construct two vacuum pressure swing adsorption (VPSA) plants at the facility, which is expected to commence operations in early 2020.

The Sierra BioFuels Plant will employ Praxair's proprietary HOB technology for increasing syngas yield from the gasification process. HOB technology enables rapid partial oxidation of remaining hydrocarbons and tars in the produced syngas without the need for a catalyst or steam injection. The HOB technology, coupled with gasification in Fulcrum's process, will help transform municipal solid waste (MSW) into renewable crude, jet fuel, and other low-carbon transportation fuels.
