Summary

Kior opens its first major Wood-to-Oil plant

Kior has announced the opening of its first commercial-scale plant designed to produce gasoline and diesel from cellulosic feedstock. At full capacity, the facility, located in Columbus Mississippi, will transform 500 tons of dry biomass a day in 40,000 gallons of fuel.
The company’s technology uses a catalyst to vaporize biomass, removing the oxygen and condensing the remainder oil that can be refined into cellulosic gasoline, diesel or jet fuel.
Kior is now planning to build a future facility with at least a three times higher production capability.

Kior has not announced yet any production of jet fuel but is engaged with the Pentagon and DOD which have tested their product.
