Red Rock Biofuels and Frontline BioEnergy produce syngas from biomass

Red Rock

Red Rock Biofuels LLC is a producer of low-carbon biofuels. Frontline BioEnergy is a provider of waste and biomass gasification solutions. They announced that they tested their innovative technology that gasifies Red Rock’s residual woody biomass feedstock; into high quality syngas. The syngas is for production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel.

Moreover, the test runs at Frontline’s headquarters in Nevada, Iowa, US. It uses Frontline’s patented TarFreeGas® and PMFreeGas® technologies. Also, the tests demonstrated TarFreeGas gasifier production of high-quality syngas; with excellent tar conversion; as well as PMFreeGas removal of char; and ash from the syngas. The resulting syngas was shown to be suitable for further processing into SAF and renewable diesel. Additional independent analysis of the test results will also be conducted to further verify the results.

We recommend: Polymer battery safer, greener and more economical than lithium battery.

We are very pleased with the outcome of the steady state test runs. These results validate the significant engineering work that has been done and clearly prove that Red Rock’s sourced residual woody biomass can be used as feedstock on a commercial scale to deliver renewable jet and diesel fuels in support of the aviation industry reaching net zero emissions.

Chip Cummins, interim Chief Executive Officer of Red Rock Biofuels and Executive Director at RPA Advisors.

The Red Rock Biofuels’ feedstock worked well in Frontline’s advanced gasification and gas clean-up technology. These tests mark a significant milestone toward the commercial deployment of biomass-to-drop-in fuels projects.

Jerod Smeenk, CEO of Frontline BioEnergy.

Finally, the woody biomass feedstock for the tests was locally sourced in Oregon, US. They are the same providers that have agreed to support Red Rock’s feedstock supply once the plant is operational.
