Avocet are in the design and development phase of a commercial scale methanol production system that can act as bolt-on system for conversion of biogas to methanol.
The biogas can be reformed with steam and then converted and distilled to create pure methanol.
The result is a clear, liquid, organic chemical that is water soluble and readily biodegradable. This can displace reliance upon fossil fuel in the agricultural community.
Such units will allow the user to blend their own clean fuel on site using the Avocet fuel additive, thus creating a zero or negative priced fuel from renewable sources such as farm or municipal waste.
