A technology company and a biofuels producer are teaming to market renewable liquid fuel and the technology to convert it into synthetic natural gas that can be burned in gas turbine combustors, emitting natural gas-level emissions without after-the-fact pollution control equipment..

LPP Combustion, LLC of Columbia, MD, has recently demonstrated its process for achieving natural gas-level emissions using palm oil-based biodiesel during gas turbine combustor testing. The biodiesel fuel was provided by Dynoil, a leading supplier of biofuels. LPP Combustion and Dynoil have announced their intent to form a strategic alliance to jointly market biodiesel and the LPP combustion technology to gas turbine power generating facilities.

Dynoil's CEO, A. Vernon Wright, states, "Dynoil is excited that it can expand the use of biodiesel in the power industry using LPP Combustion's enabling technology to provide renewable energy for a cleaner environment."

"The carbon credits generated with the use of renewable biofuels have a significant monetary value and are priceless to the world's environment," said Michael Ramotowski, director of operations of LPP Combustion. "LPP Combustion is the first company to provide a technology to simultaneously achieve natural gas-level emissions with renewable liquid fuels and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions without post-combustion pollution control equipment."

Test results showed "emissions of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and particulate matter were all typical of natural gas-level emissions achieved using current dry low-emissions gas turbine combustion technology," LPP Combustion said. " In addition, the combustion of this palm oil-based biodiesel produced no net carbon dioxide."

On Aug. 15, 2006, LPP Combustion received a U.S. patent for technology that converts liquid fuels into a synthetic natural gas, called LPP gas, which can be burned in natural gas combustion systems with no modifications to the combustion hardware. Additional U.S. and worldwide patents are pending.
