Envergent's RTP technology works by rapidly heating biomass at ambient pressure to generate high yields of a liquid biofuel, which can be used to power electric generators or burned in industrial burners and furnaces for heat. Using this biofuel will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.
Envergent Technologies is a joint venture of Honeywell's UOP and Ensyn Corp. It combines nearly 100 years of refining and process technology development from UOP and more than 25 years of biomass technology experience from Ensyn Corp. RTP is currently in use in seven commercial biomass processing plants in the U.S. and Canada.
In addition to the use of biomass for renewable power and heat, Envergent Technologies is also focused on development and commercialization of technology to upgrade the biofuel produced into green transportation fuels. A demonstration unit of this technology is currently in engineering design in Kapolei, Hawaii under a grant from the United States Department of Energy.
Honeywell's UOP is a leading supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts, adsorbents and services to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries. It has been active in the development and licensing of renewable fuel technologies since 2006. Learn more about the Envergent Technology joint venture at www.EnvergentTech.com
