DOE’s Bioenergy Technology Office validates Vertimass technology as intermediate

August 22, 2017 |

In California, Vertimass LLC announced completion of intermediate technology validation from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technology Office (BETO), which verified performance against negotiated milestones, provided progress on scale-up, and reviewed Vertimass’ estimated cost for their transformative catalytic technology.

Vertimass believes this BETO verification paves the way for Vertimass to move to the demonstration scale of this important technology for converting sustainable ethanol into fungible gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel blend stocks and the chemical building blocks benzene, toluene, and xylene (BTX).  This new Vertimass pathway can enhance use of biomass-derived renewable fuels that lower greenhouse gas emissions and allow ethanol producers to expand their product portfolio to include renewable hydrocarbons, which are compatible with the existing fuels and chemicals infrastructure, as well as ethanol.
