The new project will be through a new company, BTG-neXT, and in collaboration with GoodFuels Marine. The company will launch a pilot-scale unit with a production capacity of approximately 1,000 tons of pyrolysis oil (264 gallons), which will then be upgraded to marine diesel oil. BTG's pyrolysis technology is largely validated at scale; the key barrier is the upgrading of the pyrolysis oil, which remains a challenge due to the typically high oxygen content of the oil. Given BTG's normally cautious approach to technology development, a commercial-scale facility should not be expected within the next three years.
