Advances in Large Scale Gasification
Implementing Advanced Gasification Commercially as Part Of an Integrated Approach to Sustainable Aviation Fuels From Biomass and Waste(part 1)
Short Introductive summary
We focus on our core competence on technology development and have formed partnerships with other world class organizations for the engineering and fabrication of the innovative equipment systems. TRI has developed a suite of innovative technologies to convert waste to drop-in fuels. We demonstrated the first commercial scale application of the technology in 2003 and since then have adapted it to woody biomass and MSW derived feedstocks. Our first commercial demonstration is at Fulcrum’s Sierra biorefinery which will gasify 500 dry tons per day of MSW derived feedstock to Jet Fuel. We are the gasification technology for a number of projects in development including Velocys’ biomass to jet fuel project in Natchez, Mississippi and their sorted MSW to jet fuel project in Immingham, UK. We also have an Advanced Development Center where we house a 4 dtpd integrated biorefinery that can take virtually any carbonaceous feedstock to Fischer-Tropsch liquids. We have over 13,000 hours operation on this Process Demonstration Unit.
Dan Burciaga has served in executive positions where he leveraged his engineering and business education for domestic and international industrial projects, engineering and construction services and renewable energy technology development. After having founded a consulting engineering office and an industrial construction company, he took on the leadership role for commercializing a new gasification technology that could process a wide range of wastes into high-quality syngas. He assembled a highly proficient, self-directed team that is capable of achieving incredible outcomes.
