Because the forest residues to be converted into the renewable liquid fuel will come from the region, Crane's use of renewable power can be thought of as an extension of a larger regional initiative called "Berkshire Grown," which aims to stimulate the area by creating, growing and buying all products locally.
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 conversion technology experience from Ensyn Corp.
RTP technology works by rapidly heating biomass – in this case, forest residue - at ambient pressure to generate high yields of a liquid biofuel. The fuel can be burned in industrial burners and furnaces for heat or to power electric generators. RTP is currently in use in seven commercial biomass processing plants in the U.S. and Canada.
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. Ensyn Corporation has more than 20 years of commercial experience with RTP technology producing renewable oil for various natural chemical and fuel products.
