Green Fuels Founded 2003 Design, manufacture and supply technology for distributed- scale biodiesel production Installed capacity of over 400 million litres per year Equipment in over 50 countries on 5 continents Patents in processing technology & bio-aviation fuel Royal Warrant of Appointment
Distributed-scale approach Locate facility close to source of supply Relatively low capital cost, rapid payback Reduces impact of transport on cost and carbon budget Consistent high quality fuel Builds community involvement Improves traceability in feedstock-to-fuel cycle Ideal for emerging markets, islands, cities and closed loop recycling 20,000 lpd FuelMatic GSX 20 being installed for diesel co-operative in Massachusetts Closed-loop recycling of waste oil into fuel for logistics fleet at distribution centre for McDonald’s in Dubai, UAE
Technology Scaled for distributed, rapid-deployment and mobile applications: Standardised, factory built and tested Skid mounted and containerised options Touch screen PLC controlled with remote access Use proven transesterification method with patented separation technology (US 8,562,841) No water requirement, can operate off-grid Commercially proven globally with variety of feedstocks Micro onsite installations from 50 litres per day Commercial installations from 1,000 litres/day to 50,000 litres/day Fuel used in a variety of applications….
Case study: Closed loop recycling Co-locating at DC’s the refineries are located at the oil well and point of use - maximising margin and demonstrable carbon savings McDonald’s currently recycle 12.5 million gallons of used cooking oil per year in the USA alone Co-location minimises:- collection, consolidation and brokerage costs - enabling dramatic margin increase Primary driver is the demonstrable LC CO 2 saving over using fossil fuel But in most locations its also cheaper than traditional fuel sources. New oil Biodiesel Used oil
Case study: diesel-electric locomotive Royal Train – used by UK Royal Family for official duties Hauled by Class 67 diesel-electric locomotives with 1.9MW output Running on 100% Green Fuels-supplied biodiesel since 2007 Anecdotal report of improved fuel economy with biodiesel vs. mineral diesel
Case study: Combined Heat and Power PWC Headquarters London CHP system providing all heating and cooling and 25% of electrical demand. Operating on 100% biodiesel produced in a Green Fuels FuelMatic from locally sourced UCO Highest BREEAM outstanding rating Worldwide Being rolled out to other sites
Tapachula, Mexico Serving regional airport, providing biodiesel for local transport Fuel used as B100 for transport to COP 16 Provides model for future decentralised production of aviation biofuel Case study: Rural locations
Case study: BioJet 1 US subsidiary provided the biodiesel for ‘Green Flight’, the world’s first B100 jet aircraft flight The plane was an Czechoslovakian L29 Delfin jet fighter / trainer from the early 1960s The flight was performed at the Stead air field in Reno, Nevada on October 5, 2007 Started our research into bio-aviation fuels…..
The aviation biofuel market Global jet fuel demand 6 MBPD by 2020 = $262bn IATA: 6% of fuel to be alternative by 2020 EU: 600 MGPY of aviation biofuel by 2020 USA: 1,500 MGPY by 2020 Addressable global market - $15B by 2020 MBPD, million barrels per day; MGPY, million (US) gallons per year
Jet biofuel patent Based on hydro-processed fatty acid esters HEFA Drop-in biofuel so no adaptation to infrastructure or aircraft US Patent 8,715,374 Issued May 6 th 2014 Granted claims cover fuel composition Fuel composition is wide ranging and encompasses hydroprocessed FAME
Why Green Fuels Biojet? Low feedstock dependency Close to market, ASTM approved and applicable at any scale FAME input is free from glycerine contamination, reducing the energy required to the process oil. Freeze separating the fractions allows selection of the optimum fraction of FAME for onward processing into jet fuel and other high value products. Removes components responsible for low-temperature gelling as well as for oxidative instability. The technology can be retrofitted to existing biodiesel facilities that have a secure feedstock supply By co-locating at exiting biodiesel facilities we minimise permitting time and costs
Cost analysis – UCO Overall yield of jet fuel per litre feedstock ml662 Net cost per gallon $2.84 A typical UCO would provide approximately: 76% jet fuel 17% road fuel 7% n-3
Opportunities in Brazil Today bioenergy represents around 30% of the Brazilian energy makeup Great potential for the decentralised processing of used cooking oil into biodiesel Ethanol mills looking at biodiesel production to fuel farming operations Mining companies looking at biodiesel production for internal use Huge opportunity for the production and use of bio-aviation fuels as outlined in ‘Flightpath to aviation biofuels in Brazil’
