Earth Energy Renewables (EER), Bryan-College Station, Texas, has developed a unique proprietary process for recovering nine highly valuable organic fatty acids from conventional anaerobic digestion fermentation broth. These carboxylic acids, significantly more valuable than bio-gas, have many direct industrial applications and are important chemical building blocks for a wide range of chemicals such as esters, polyol esters, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, triglycerides, di-carboxylic acids, olefins and drop-in hydrocarbon fuels. EER’s Carboxylate Platform technology sets the stage for a new approach for higher valorization of organic waste streams thru anaerobic digestion. Having completed a series of pilot and demonstration plants, EER and its partner, Kemin Industries, are designing a commercial scale plant capable of processing approximately 60,000 tons per year of high moisture organic material anticipating completion in late 2019.
Electrochaea has developed a commercially viable and disruptive solution for utility-scale energy storage, grid balancing, and carbon reuse.
Our proprietary process converts low-cost and stranded electricity and CO2 into pipeline-grade renewable gas for direct injection into the natural gas grid.
