Producing Commercial Renewable Liquid Fuels and Chemicals from Non-food Biomass with Proven Technology

Ensyn is a producer of cellulosic renewable liquid fuels and renewable chemical products. Ensyn has had continuous commercial operations for several years, producing over 30 million gallons of renewable fuels and chemicals from wood residues. Supported by a strategic alliance with UOP, a Honeywell company, Ensyn is now initiating a significant expansion of production capacity. Ensyn’s core technology, Rapid Thermal Processing, or RTP™, converts residual biomass from the forest and agricultural sectors as well as cellulosic-based, post-consumer wastes to high yields of light liquids. These RTP liquids are a source for a wide range of applications, some of which have already been commercialized and others which are poised for commercial introduction. The presentation will provide an overview will of Ensyn’s technology, current product portfolio as well as new product developments.
