Altex Technologies Corporation is fabricating and testing a lab scale liquid fuel production system using coal containing different percentages of biomass such as corn stover and switchgrass at a rate of two liters per day.
Altex Coal Biomass to Drop-In Fuels Process.
Program Background and Project Benefits
This Altex Technologies Corporation project will develop and test an integrated laboratory-scale coal-and-biomass-to-fuels system (CBTL). The impact of this project will be to develop a cost-effective gasification-based CBTL process to produce renewable liquid fuels that will provide diversity of fuel supply and energy security while resulting in lower future capital and operating costs. Specifically, this project will design and build (1) an innovative upstream process that converts the solid feed into a highly reactive intermediate and (2) a downstream process which converts the intermediate product into liquid fuel using a low-temperature catalytic system.
