Our pioneering Cat-HTR™ (Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor) technology use hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL), the next-generation of feedstock recycling – a depolymerization process for natural polymers (biomass) and man-made polymers (plastic).
HTL uses water under high pressure and temperature to economically and efficiently transform a wide range of “waste” biomass and plastic into a high-quality, sustainable oil; a direct substitute for fossil crude.
It is globally recognised as the most commercially advanced technology of its kind.
Compared to pyrolysis and gasification, our HTL process is more efficient and flexible, delivering higher value with lower emissions.
Here’s how we enable a low-carbon circular economy for biomass resources
Our Cat-HTR™ offers a high value, low emissions alternative to burning or burying of biomass, helping to transition to a low-carbon economy.
The next-generation of advanced recycling, Cat-HTR™ is unique among plastic to oil technologies, delivering higher value and lower emissions than other approaches.
We partner with other industry leaders who share our vision for a lower carbon future. Our Cat-HTR™ technology is at the core of our partner’s commercial roll-out.
