In Pennsylvania earlier this month, as the industry was breaking for the Independence Day holiday, the state of Pennsylvania announced a $175,000 grant to Accelergy toward a feasibility study to determine the location for a a Coal-Biomass-to-Liquids pilot production facility.
With the grant in hand, the Carbon Cycle Technology Alliance (a collaboration between Accelergy, defense industry powerhouse Raytheon and others) will also be evaluating the viability of CBTL technology and exploring potential partnerships with major Pennsylvania universities.
In Accelergy’s case, the CBTL process uses coal and biomass to produce alternative fuels that are twice as more efficient as existing coal-to-liquids technologies and reduce carbon emissions by 20 percent. The fuels are currently undergoing testing by the U.S. Air Force.
Ok, that’s interesting. 20 percent emission reductions compared to fossil fuels – that’s material. A combination of biomass and coal to do so – that sounds strong on feedstock availability, if the emissions work out as projected, and costs are in line.
So let’s check out Accelergy and its technology, as a means to replace to the 60 billion gallons of fossil aviation fuels. The Digest spoke Friday with Accelergy CEO Tim Vail.
