Synthetic Fuel Firm Targets International Adoption
by Bob Brooks (Automotive Industries) Possibly the most innovative new synthetic fuel, developed by privately financed Joule Unlimited, has proven the cost effectiveness of its system during 18 months at a pilot plant in Arizona. It is now under way with construction of a plant at initial scale in New Mexico, and has taken steps true to its word last year to target international adoption. The New Mexico plant is being engineered and constructed by the world-respected Fluor Corp. with 60 offices on 6 continents.
Joule expects to eclipse the scale, productivity, and cost efficiency of any known alternative to fossil fuels with no dependence on biomass feed stocks. Joule employs proprietary bacteria exposed to solar energy, brackish water, and waste CO2 to make synthetic alcohols, hydrocarbon (drop in) fuels, and chemicals.
