SYLVATEX SUCCESSFULLY DEMONSTRATES NANOTECHNOLOGY BASED FUEL BLENDSTOCK

Sylvatex is developing a blendstock intermediate that utilizes a large portion of “renewable, combustible, oxygenated free fatty acid (FFA) surfactant”. The FFA is blended into a polar, aqueous media to form a stable blendstock, and then mixed with a base solution (diesel, gasoline or other applications) to produce a finished product (nanoscale reverse micelle).

Sylvatex collaborated with ABPDU on exploring different options of processing and analysis of various feedstock composition. The company aims to develop a library of surfactant inputs that are readily available, low in cost and have a very low-carbon intensity as Sylvatex scales their products in different applications/markets
