BioRGAS Project for Reducing Aviation Emissions with Biofuels

GTI Energy is leading a project to help scale-up technologies that will expand the production and use of low-carbon sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) while reducing costs and minimizing equipment size.

The R-GAS™ Advanced Gasification Pre-Pilot Demonstration for Biofuels (BioRGAS) project will demonstrate that aviation fuel, diesel, or marine fuel can be produced at commercial scale from biomass and sorted municipal solid waste (SMSW) for less than $2.75 per Gallon of Gasoline Equivalent (GGE), and with a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of greater than 70% over the petroleum derived equivalent.

The U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office has granted nearly $4 million in funding to help put the aviation sector on a pathway to full decarbonization by 2050, and LCRI will provide additional financial support for demonstrating this large-scale conversion technology to minimize greenhouse gas emissions.

Data acquired during these tests will be used for scale-up modeling and a detailed technoeconomic and lifecycle analysis on a commercial plant.
