Johnson Matthey, BP,Fulcrum BioEnergy
Date: 2018-10-05
Oil giant BP and chemicals firm Johnson Matthey (JM) report they have inked an agreement with California based Fulcrum BioEnergy to license their Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology to support Fulcrum's drive to convert municipal solid waste into biobased jet fuel at their new Sierra BioFuels Plant near Reno, Nevada.

When fully operational early in 2020, the Sierra plant is expected to convert approximately 175,000 tpy of household garbage into roughly 11 million gpy of jet fuel.

FT technology can operate at large and small scale to economically convert synthesis gas generated from municipal solid waste and other renewable biomass into long-chain hydrocarbons suitable for the production of diesel and jet fuels.
