New Jersey Company Commissions 100,000-Gallon-per-Year Plant
Making Gasoline from Natural Gas, Biomass Feedstocks to Follow

Hillsborough, N.J.-based Primus Green Energy has commissioned a 100,000-gallon-per-year demonstration plant making 93-octane drop-in gasoline from natural gas.

Primus Green Energy plans to graduate from an initial 100,000-gallon-per-year plant making drop-in gasoline from natural gas to a 25-million-gallon GTL+ facility producing gasoline, diesel fuel or jet fuel directly from biomass.

Primus Green Energy plans to graduate from an initial 100,000-gallon-per-year plant making drop-in gasoline from natural gas to a 25-million-gallon STG+ facility producing gasoline, diesel fuel or jet fuel directly from biomass.

Primus has a process it calls STG+, and wants to use it to produce gasoline, diesel fuel or jet fuel directly from biomass with a first commercial unit capable of making 25 million gallons per year.

Primus claims industry-leading process efficiencies for STG+, as the technology converts more than 70% of natural gas by mass into drop-in fuels, or more than 35% of biomass-derived syngas by mass into drop-in fuels.

‘Bridge to Biomass’

The Hillsborough demonstration unit “marks the final technical milestone before the company moves forward with plans for its first, commercial plant,” Primus says.

The company’s STG+ technology “advances the use of low-cost, abundant natural gas in the production of transportation fuels,” Primus says, “thus enabling the use of natural gas as a true ‘bridge to biomass,’ as Primus will later adopt biomass feedstocks.”

No Government Subsidies

Primus says it built the Hillsborough facility “with no federal or state subsidies, and at a fraction of the cost of demo plants built by other companies in the space.” Israel Corp has invested more than $50 million in Primus.
