Traditionally – and currently – for virtually every known competitor in the biomass-to-fuel sector, the conversion of biomass typically produces a large quantity of waste carbon molecules, since biomass has substantial excess carbon (versus hydrogen) when used to produce conventional petrochemical fuel components.
With XFuels XCrude™ technology, our proprietary Injection Catalyst™ negates this excess carbon – while at the same time producing more fuel – by adding a hydrogen molecule to the syngas produced from biomass conversion. This patented technology alone, is resetting the bar in the biomass-to-fuel space.
Furthermore, any remaining unused carbon from the XRefinery™, is then sequestered by our patented Omega BioReactor™ system, growing algae as a cash crop in the process.
The cumulative effect of these proprietary technology processes in the XFuels XRefinery™ platform, allows the corresponding petrochemical components (e.g., XGasoline™ or XDiesel™ fuels), to have a carbon-neutral, or even carbon-negative rating, known as X2Fuel™ ("X-Squared Fuel"). This premium X2 rating assigned by XFuels, is given because our X2 fuels are both (A) carbon neutral in nature, and (B) deliver an equivalent amount of carbon capture/sequestration. This provides up to twice the environmental benefits compared with today's cleanest energy technologies such as wind, hydro, and solar.
By using XFuels' carbon-negative X2Fuel™, the filthiest global polluters
can instantaneously become some of the cleanest companies on the planet.
XFuels Carbon-Negative Fuel Production Cycle
Example shown for "Waste Corn Stover" feedstock
X2Fuel™ achieves carbon-negative status, because carbon is actually "pulled out" of the earth's eco-process cycle, through (A) the use of carbon in the production of fuel, and (B) additional consumption of carbon via the XAlgae™ Reactor which produces food-grade algae. (The production and use of XFertilizer™ returns any remaining carbon to the soil – typically a fraction of a percent – for better long-term crop production.)
1Sun, CO2 and water occur naturally.
2Crop photosynthesis occurs as plants convert carbon dioxide (with energy from sunlight and water) into organic compounds for growth.
3Food – in the form of corn kernels – are harvested and sent to market to feed people.
4The crop field waste – corn stover (corn stalks, leaves and cobs) – is ground up as a feedstock for XFuels.
technology, a patented low-energy electro-chemical process, causes molecular dissociation of the molecules in the corn stover feedstock, and produces a high quality syngas which is converted into ultra clean carbon-neutral and carbon-negative fuels such as CleanPetroleum™
gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
6The XAlgae™ Reactor sequesters additional carbon as it grows food-grade algae.
7Food – in the form of algae – is auto-harvested in XFuels patented bioreactor, and sent to market to provide high-grade nutrition to people.
8Remaining mineral byproduct is nutrient enriched, and able to be deployed back into the soil to help it retain water and minerals, and help farmers grow better crops.
9XFertilizer™ is sold as a premium soil enhancer.
10The enriched soil, naturally produces a better crop yield.
