Fulcrum BioEnergy assembles a stellar group of partners as it breaks ground on new biojet fuel facility

September 04, 2018 | Case Study

Fulcrum BioEnergy is a technology integrator currently building a 10 million gallon per year (10 MGY) biojet fuel and renewable diesel facility that is due to come online in 2020. The company will use a two-stage gasification and Fischer-Tropsch conversion process to convert municipal solid waste (MSW) into syngas and subsequently into syncrude that will be refined into renewable diesel and biojet fuel in a refinery. Biojet fuel produced from Fischer-Tropsch conversion was the first fuel pathway to be approved under ASTM D7566 in 2009, and it can be blended with conventional jet fuel at a level of up to 50%.
