VIASPACE teams with PCS Biofuels to convert Giant King Grass into drop-in coal replacement

In California, VIASPACE announced that PCS Biofuels Inc. of Vancouver, Canada has converted Giant King Grass into a high-energy, carbon neutral, drop-in replacement for coal using its patented Polymer Carbon Solid (PCS) thermal catalytic process.

PCS solid biofuel is hydrophobic and can be stored outdoors like coal and pulverized in the same machines as coal. The PCS solid biofuel process is a hydrothermal process that uses hot water under pressure as the solvent, and a patented catalyst.
