US: DOE to award Honeywell’s UOP $25M for demo unit
Source : greencarcongress.com
The US Department of Energy has selected UOP, a Honeywell company, for negotiation of a $25 million award to build a demonstration unit in Hawaii to convert cellulosic biomass into renewable hydrocarbon transportation fuels. The demonstration unit will employ the RTP rapid thermal processing technology developed by Ensyn Corp. RTP rapidly heats biomass at ambient pressure to generate high yields of pourable, liquid pyrolysis oil. The pyrolysis oil — essentially a bio crude oil — will then be upgraded to green transport fuels using technology developed by UOP working with DOE, the DOE’s National Renewable Energy Lab and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). The demonstration plant, which will be built at the Tesoro Corp. refinery in Kapolei, Hawaii, is expected to start up in 2014.
