CORE BioFuel Inc. Engages RECAT Technologies to Pilot Gasoline Reactors
(CORE Biofuel, Inc.) CORE BioFuel Inc., a Canadian biofuel company that is commercializing an advanced biomass to gasoline production process, today announced the engagement of RECAT Technologies (www.recattechnologies.com) to complete a pilot of our gasoline production reactors. Upon completion of the planned pilot activities, CORE will have demonstrated the critical gasoline production steps in our MKS Process™. The data from the pilot process will provide the specifications for the catalysts to be used in our gasoline production process as well as the design parameters required by our equipment fabricators to design and build the gasoline reactors needed for our production facilities.
Dr. Hugo de Lasa, the President and founder of RECAT commented, “Core Biofuels’ initiative is a unique project of great vision. I am pleased to collaborate with this Canadian based company in developing and setting up a technology that will address the production of bio-gasoline by using wood waste feedstock from Pine Beetle damaged trees, forestry slash, and mill residues in British Columbia.”
Mr. George Stanko, President and Chief Executive Officer of CORE BioFuel, commented, “Dr. de Lasa is a recognized expert in his field and we are extremely pleased to have engaged his team. RECAT specializes in the commercialization of innovative reactor engineering and will work with CORE to complete our pilot work that will lead to the commercialization of our first plant.”
