Sundrop Fuels and Uhde Corporation of America sign FEED and License Agreement for "Drop-In" Biofuels
Sundrop Fuels, Inc. has signed a comprehensive Front End Engineering and License Agreement with Uhde Corporation of America for design of what will be one of the first renewable gasoline production facilities in the world. As part of the agreement, Sundrop Fuels has selected ThyssenKrupp Uhde’s High-Temperature Winkler (HTW) process for biomass gasification as a key element of the plant. The fully integrated production plant will convert biomass by means of commercially available gasification, gas purification, methanol synthesis and methanol to gasoline (MTG) processes into affordable, immediately usable renewable gasoline. Construction of the “drop-in” biofuels plant located near Alexandria, Louisiana is scheduled to begin late this year.
