Bio-Jet Fuel via Fischer-Tropsch

Sustainable transportation is making great strides and bio-jet fuel via Fischer-Tropsch is coming on the scene. Electrification of the automotive and public transport sectors is reducing emissions and allowing increased use of renewables. This has not been the case for aviation until recently, as that industry has continued to consume vast quantities of fossil fuels…

Performance Guarantees in Bioeconomy Projects

Biotechnologies, like other new to the market process technologies, often do not have proven track records of commercial scale operations in revenue positive facilities. And because they lack a performance history and commercial references, the risk of employing new biotechnology is seen as high. To mitigate new technology risk, project developers and plant owners often…
