Cat-HTR™ is the next-generation of biomass to oil technologies, offering a high value, low emissions alternative to burning or burying biomass, helping to transition to a low carbon circular economy.
A low-carbon circular economy with the Cat-HTR™ advanced recycling platform
The world’s most advanced hydrothermal liquefaction technology
Our Cat-HTR™ technology is at the core of our partners processes.
We partner with other industry leaders who share our vision for a lower carbon future.
Advantages for biomass
Compared to both pyrolysis and gasification, the Cat-HTR™ process produces significantly higher yields of biocrude at a lower energy intensity.
Lower carbon footprint due to a relatively low reaction temperatures (~300°C) unlike pyrolysis (~500°C) and gasification (~700°C).
HTL produces a superior biocrude vs. Pyrolysis:
- >50% more energy density (HHV);
- much lower oxygen content;
- less corrosive;
- easier to mix;
- more stable;
- easily transportable.
- HTL embraces moisture in biomass;
- ability to use wider range of feedstocks.
