Fulcrum BioEnergy has developed a “game-changing process for converting municipal solid waste that would otherwise be landfilled, into renewable transportation fuels including syncrude, jet fuel and diesel”. The company has successfully proven and demonstrated this process for converting MSW to fuels utilizing its proprietary, innovative, clean and efficient thermochemical process. Fulcrum has secured long-term, zero-cost MSW feedstock agreements with two waste services partners and has entered into fuel and product offtake agreements with Cathay Pacific Airways and a large oil refining company.
Fulcrum’s innovative business model combines large volume MSW feedstock agreements with a demonstrated thermochemical process to produce jet fuel and diesel at an estimated production cost of well less than $1.00 per gallon.
The first phase of construction is underway on the company’s first commercial project, the Sierra BioFuels Plant, which will convert MSW into a renewable Fischer-Tropsch syncrude, which will then be refined into jet fuel and diesel. The Sierra BioFuels Plant is scheduled to begin commercial operations in 2017 with the production of more than 10 million gallons of renewable transportation fuel.
