The cutting-edge Spindletop Project will utilize “System 1000” to convert sustainably sourced woody biomass into renewable synthesis gas for the production of approximately 345 000 barrels annually of renewable gasoline with a negative carbon intensity score.
SunGas will supply Arbor Gas with the System 1000 design, equipment components, and services required to support the startup of the Spindletop Project in the second half of 2024.
We are very pleased to make this important announcement today which marks a positive step forward for SunGas, Arbor Gas, and for decarbonization of transportation fuels. We have designed our System 1000 product line to be a cost-effective, dependable, and safe source of renewable synthesis gas for the production of a wide range of biofuels. We believe Arbor Gas has laid a strong foundation for growing their renewable fuels business and we are committed to supporting the company in this endeavor, said Robert Rigdon, CEO of SunGas.
Under the terms of the agreement, SunGas will supply System 1000 to Arbor Gas including gasification technology, process design, and the major equipment systems such as wood waste feeding, gasifier reactor, fines separation, ash removal, tar conversion, syngas cooling, and syngas filtration.
