San Joaquin Renewables Receives Technology License from Frontline BioEnergy, LLC
San Joaquin Renewables is thrilled to announce its partnership with Frontline Bioenergy, LLC. San Joaquin Renewables believes that Frontline BioEnergy’s Biomass into Natural Gas (BING™) process is the best available process to convert orchard waste in the San Joaquin Valley into natural gas that can be used as a transportation fuel. Frontline BioEnergy’s BING™ process provides a pathway to natural gas that eliminates common problems with renewable natural gas production facilities and provides improved efficiencies when compared to production of liquid biofuels.
Frontline BioEnergy has been building biomass and waste gasification systems since 2005 using their proprietary gasification technology. Frontline BioEnergy has several notable projects in their history. In 2008, Frontline BioEnergy completed installation of a commercial biomass gasification to fuel gas system at an ethanol production facility to displace natural gas as boiler fuel. Frontline BioEnergy designed a fully integrated biomass-to-liquids demonstration plant. Frontline BioEnergy has also designed a commercial biomass and waste gasification system to electric power, which is currently under construction in the United Kingdom. Frontline BioEnergy also has multiple pilot systems near their headquarters in Ames, Iowa to perform feedstock testing and collect data for commercial plant design.
Frontline BioEnergy and San Joaquin Renewables have reached an agreement to provide San Joaquin Renewables access to Frontline BioEnergy’s BING™ process. In addition to receipt of a technology license, San Joaquin Renewables has hired Frontline BioEnergy to perform preliminary and detailed engineering. Frontline BioEnergy will deliver a turnkey plant, managing other project partners and suppliers as well as managing construction of the plant near Bakersfield, California.
