Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA Synthetic Fuel Corp. is an environmentally focused alternative energy company. They are pursuing clean energy solutions based on gasification and other proven BTU conversion technologies. The Company’s goal is to develop and construct ultra-clean BTU Conversion and Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) production facilities in the United States. ?
USA Synthetic Fuel Corp. intends to develop, finance, construct, own and operate gasification, synthetic natural gas, and Fisher Tropsch liquid production facilities to convert lower value, solid hydrocarbons such as coal, petroleum coke (petcoke) and biomass into higher value, environmentally cleaner energy sources. Petroleum liquids, petroleum byproducts, asphaltenes, natural gas and other similar gases may also be used as feedstock to produce synthetic gas.
The Company has major near-term projects (Lima Energy Project and Cleantech Energy Project) representing 38.6 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) (229 billion cubic feet) annually of synthetic natural gas and 516 megawatts net of electric power in development or construction. In addition, they may produce and sell hydrogen gas in the future, if this market develops further.
USA Synthetic Fuel Corp. believes gasification technology offers a superior CO2 management solution. Their management’s belief is that carbon dioxide can be captured efficiently at low cost within the gasification and other BTU conversion processes. The captured CO2, in liquid form, can then be injected into oil fields for enhanced oil recovery or sequestered in certain geological formations for permanent storage.
The Company’s management and technical team have optimized gasification technology operations to produce synthetic natural gas at prices competitive with major hydrocarbons – coal, oil and natural gas – produced by normal techniques. Furthermore, other solid hydrocarbons such as renewables and petcoke can be used in certain Company planned facilities.
The USA Synthetic Fuel Corp. management and technical team include veterans of the environmental technology and advanced clean energy systems. The Company’s management and technical teams developed their expertise while working with Global Energy Inc. and other organizations in the development of key gasification technologies and gasification technology facilities.
