Emerging Fuels Technology licenses FT process to Red Rock Biofuels

October 23, 2018 |

In Oklahoma, Emerging Fuels Technology, Inc (EFT) has executed a license agreement with Red Rock Biofuels LLC under which EFT will provide its TL8a Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology to provide additional FT capacity for RRB’s biorefinery in Lakeview, Oregon, USA.  EFT has also received a “notice to proceed” from RRB to commence design of its FT system to be installed at the Lakeview biorefinery.

RRB is a subsidiary of IR1 Group LLC (“IR1”), which has built and operated over 325 million gallons of biofuels production capacity and is constructing the Lakeview biorefinery.

IR1 will build a global portfolio of biorefineries to convert waste woody biomass into renewable jet and diesel fuels.  Through a proprietary integration of existing technologies, IR1 makes the long-commercialized Fischer-Tropsch process economic at the biomass scale.  By using forest and sawmill residues IR1 will also reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires by removing waste biomass from overstocked forests.
