The ability to make fuel from biomass has existed for decades. However,
production cost is a major barrier to seeing biomass gasoline at
any local pump. Typically, biomass feedstocks require water removal via
drying before oil extraction, which is an energy-intensive and expensive
process. However, Genifuel Corp and the Pacific Northwest
National have developed a process to convert wet biomass into biofuels
while it’s still wet, eliminating costly drying. Wet biomass is heated and
pressurized, converting 99% of the organic matter into biocrude, which
can be used as jet fuel, gasoline or diesel. The effluent water is continually
processed, yielding natural gas for energy and plant nutrients, such as
nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. The clean, nutrient-containing water
can be recycled to grow more feedstock or for agriculture. The process works
with a variety of wet biomass, including food processing waste, animal
waste and municipal solid waste.
