Synthetic Diesel

What is Synthetic Diesel?

Synthetic Diesel is a method of producing diesel fuel from natural gas as well as from coal and organic waste streams such as biogas or biomethane

Synthetic Diesel fuel, is NOT the same as B100 Biodiesel – Synthetic diesel is made by processing natural gas through a technology called the Fischer-Tropsch process, which converts the natural gas into Synthetic Diesel, a liquid – and used just like regular diesel fuel in any diesel fuel application.

Synthetic Diesel provides numerous economic and environmental benefits over typical petroleum diesel. First of all, Synthetic Diesel is sulfur-free and free of other petroleum by-products that are found in petroleum diesel that has been refined from crude oil. This means that Synthetic Diesel is significantly cleaner, cleaner-burning, and can be formulated for superior cold weather performance and fuel system lubricity. 

Because Synthetic Diesel has fewer contaminates, it is lower in toxicity. 

As Synthetic Diesel has a high cetane rating at 60 (cetane for diesel - octane for gasoline), it offers better performance over typical diesel fuel produced from crude oil.

Running on "green fuel" such as Biomethane, B100 Biodiesel, Synthesis Gas or natural gas, our CHP Systems are the greenest "clean power generation" systems available as they generate no new greenhouse gas emissions or other hazardous air pollutants.

With Natural Gas prices at $5.00/mmbtu, our Clean Power Generation plants generate  power for a fuel cost at about $0.05/kWh.  With operations & maintenance added in - we generate power for less than a nickel or $0.065/kWh - or, 50% less than your present electric rates.

We also provide energy independence from the "dirty" power grid with its high unreliability, black-outs and sky-rocketing electric power prices.


Clean Power Generation Solutions

CHP Systems (Cogeneration and Trigeneration) Plants 
Have Very  High Efficiencies, Low Fuel Costs & Low Emissions

The CHP System below is Rated at 900 kW and Features:
(2) Natural Gas Engines @ 450 kW each on one Skid with Optional 
Selective Catalytic Reduction
system that removes Nitrogen Oxides to "non-detect."

The Effective Heat Rate of the CHP System below is 
4100 btu/kW with a Net System Efficiency of 92%. 


CHP Systems may be the best solution for your company's economic and environmental sustainability as we "upgrade" natural gas to clean power with our clean power generation solutions.

Emissions Abatement solutions reduce Nitrogen Oxides to "non-detect" which means our CHP Systems can be installed and operated in most EPA non-attainment regions!

Our CHP Systems - (operating in either natural gas fueled cogeneration or trigeneration --- or --- solar cogeneration or solar trigeneration configuration) may be the optimum power and energy solution for customers wanting increased power reliability and decreased energy and environmental costs. A few of the clients and markets that may benefit from our CHP Systems include the following:

For qualified clients we will design, build, finance, own, operate and maintain a new:

Clean Power Generation


Organic Rankine Cycle


Waste Heat Recovery 

energy system, through a Power Purchase Agreement that guarantees
a minimum 10% reduction in our client's energy expenses.

(NOTE:  Our engineering and EPC services may be provided by one of our affiliated 
companies - one of which is a Top ENR ranked EPC company.
