Diesel with 89% Lower GHGs: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to Synpet Technologies

Submitted by on March 8, 2018 – 11:42 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  Synpet was founded in 2014 as a developer of a synthetic petroleum (SYNPET) business using its Thermal Conversion Process. TCP breaks down organic waste materials by using heat, pressure and water to produce oil and other co-products. SYNPET uses a proprietary thermal depolymerization process that subjects animal and food waste to heat and pressure in the presence of water, producing a renewable diesel

According to the founders, the SYNPET renewable diesel pathway results in an 89% reduction in GHG emissions compared to the diesel fuel baseline, and qualifies for generating RINs for Biomass-Based Diesel and Advanced Biofuel (D-codes 4 & 5, respectively).

The SYNPET fuel production process is not considered either trans-esterification or hydrotreating. 

Co-founder Brian Appel gave this illuminating overview of the technology’s progress and promise at ABLC 2018 in Washington DC.   READ MORE
