Liquid Solar Energy – Ready for Engines
Today there is little dispute that renewable alternatives are needed to reduce fossil fuel dependence, yet biofuels have fallen short on scale, efficiency, cost and infrastructure readiness.
Joule Fuels can uniquely solve these challenges by eliminating the Achilles heel of renewable fuels: reliance on biomass; and the costs, processing and logistics it entails.
- Scale: Our lack of feedstock constraints and our modular system allow rapid scale-up to meet global demand.
- Efficiency: Our direct, continuous process maximizes areal efficiency, with ultimate productivity targets of 25,000 gallons of Sunflow-E and 15,000 gallons of Sunflow-D per acre annually.
- Cost: At full-scale commercial production, we target costs as low as $1.28/gal Sunflow-E and $50/bbl Sunflow-D, excluding subsidies and including capital costs.
- Infrastructure readiness: Our products are inherently compatible with existing fuel infrastructure without chemical processing.
Joule Sunflow-E will be commercially available in 2015, with Joule Sunflow-D to follow.
