JM and BP license waste-to-fuels technology to Fulcrum BioEnergy

September 30, 2018 |

In the United Kingdom, Johnson Matthey, alongside BP, signed an agreement with Fulcrum BioEnergy to license their Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology to support biofuels producer Fulcrum and their drive to convert municipal solid waste into biojet fuel.

The simple to operate and cost advantaged FT technology can operate both at large and small scale to economically convert synthesis gas, generated from sources such as municipal solid waste and other renewable biomass, into long-chain hydrocarbons suitable for the production of diesel and jet fuels. Fulcrum will use the technology in their new Sierra BioFuels Plant located in Storey County, Nevada, approximately 20 miles east of Reno.

“We have been following BP and Johnson Matthey’s progress for several years, including the demonstrated performance and reliability of their innovative design. We are pleased to partner with them and license this improved FT technology for our Sierra BioFuels Plant,” said Jim Macias, Fulcrum BioEnergy President and Chief Executive Officer. “The BP/JM technology enhances the value of Fulcrum’s process for converting waste to low carbon, drop-in fuels. We look forward to working with BP and JM as we build out our large development programme.”
