Interra Reciprocating Reactor to Produce Low-Cost Renewable Natural Gas
Interra's Reciprocating Reactor is an efficient method for producing RNG from green waste
Researchers completed some hot testing under this project and expect that the testing phase will be completed in early November 2015.
The purpose of this project was to design, build and demonstrate the use of a reciprocating reactor by producing the highest quantity of biochar on an input/output basis and the highest end-quality gas on an energy density basis (btu/scf) of all publicly known continuous feed thermochemical conversion technologies without the use of chemical catalysts, separate gas upgrading processes, external heat input, or air/oxygen injection for combustion heat makeup.
The production of renewable natural gas from green waste through this project will provide California with a viable and low emission fuel option. Increased access to RNG within the state reduces dependency on other imported fuel options with higher carbon footprints.
