In California, Rentech, Inc. has selected Fluor Corporation to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for Rentec’s Rialto Renewable Energy Center in San Bernardino County. The Rialto Project will utilize the Rentech-SilvaGas biomass gasification system and Rentech’s Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels conversion technology (Rentech Process). Final product upgrading will be provided by UOP, a Honeywell company.
