Velocys FT - 2008 R&D 100 Award Winner

November 2008
Yong Wang and Dean Matson recognized for their role in developing advanced reactor technology that greatly reduces the size and cost of second-generation biofuel facilities. Next-generation biofuels, ones that use non-food biomass, are a more sustainable choice than today's biofuels. Velocys-FT can help next-generation biofuels be produced more inexpensively at smaller-scale facilities. Primary benefits include favorable economics at smaller scales, more easily deployed and modular units and improved heat transfer. Velocys led this technology development with contributions from Battelle and PNNL.
