Steeper Energy is a leading technology vendor for the efficient production of renewable fuels from sustainable biomass, such as agricultural and forestry residues, sewage sludge, manures, the organic fraction of municipal waste and food processing industry wastes. Steeper Energy’s Hydrofaction™ produces high energy density drop-in renewable fuels which enable the heavy transport sector to seamlessly transition to low carbon fuels. Hydrofaction™ is a highly energy-efficient, super-critical water hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) technology, which delivers higher quality biocrude oil at higher biomass-to-oil yields than competing technologies, with yields of 45% on a mass basis and greater than 80% on an energy basis. Additionally, Hydrofaction™ can attain higher (e.g. 90%) GHG reductions than other methods for treating bio-organic wastes (e.g. anerobic digestion), while producing an ultra-low carbon liquid fuel. Steeper Energy’s unique processing conditions are protected by over 100 patents (granted/pending) across 24 patent families. Steeper licenses Hydrofaction™ to resource owners and/or project developers to monetize low-value or stranded material. Steeper Energy has strong expertise in project development and works with owners and/or aggregators of biomass resources to develop or co-develop Hydrofaction™ facilities to produce advanced biofuels.
