Syn Tawa Energy
Syn Tawa Energy, LLC (“Syn Tawa”), was founded in 2011 with the mission to develop clean, second generation renewable fuel refineries in order to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil and to help create a cleaner, healthier environment. Our principal offices are in Phoenix, Arizona and Laguna Hills, California.
Syn Tawa Energy is a technology integrator who develops gasification plants capable of converting any carbon-containing feedstock such as biomass, coal, petroleum coke, or municipal solid waste (“MSW”) into synthesis gas (Syngas), consisting primarily of (H) and carbon monoxide (CO). The Syngas produced by this gasification process is a clean, dry, flexible fuel which can be (1) burned to create heat and electricity, (2) passed through any of several different catalysts to produce fluids such as alcohols and transportation fuels, including clean burning renewable diesel, or (3) used to supply pure hydrogen gas for multiple applications.
Arizona Renewable Fuels, LLC, (“AZRF”), to be developed by Syn Tawa, will be among the first wave of second generation commercial scale, cellulosic renewable fuel refineries in the U.S. The technology consists of a DOE certified, patented state-of-the-art, commercial scale, near zero emission carbon based “green wood waste” biomass gasifier. The ThermoChem Recovery International (TRI) gasification technology also has a highly efficient back-end patented, gas-to-liquid (“GTL”) conversion system that generates a zero sulfur, drop-in premium ASTM D975 diesel fuel at a production cost that is below petroleum diesel and biodiesel fuels. Presently in 2015, cellulosic and advanced biofuels production in the U.S. has been well below the EPA’s RFS2 statutory annual mandates.
