Merrick & Company has signed with Genifuel Corporation to provide the design and commissioning of the hydrothermal processing pilot system for Reliance Industries. The system will process whole algae into biocrude, fuel gas and usable by-products, thereby doubling the yield of biofuels from algae and reducing the cost of production by 86%.
The system uses heat, pressure and catalysts to convert wet algae into oil which can further be refined to produce aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel. The system is skid mounted with electrical, instrumentation and control components that are compatible with the standards of India.
