CCS and Power Systems

Advanced Energy Systems - Coal and Coal/Biomass to Liquids

Laboratory Scale Liquids Production and Assessment: Coal and Biomass to Drop-In Fuels

Performer: Altex Technologies Corporation

Project No: FE0010427

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.
