Mercurius Biorefining is currently developing two projects. First we are developing an exciting and potentially transformative techology to convert cellulosic material into drop-in, hydrocarbon diesel and jet fuel.
Secondly, we are evaluating using the Hydrolysis step of our technology to produce high value green chemicals.
Mercurius is developing transformative cellulosic fuel technology to make jet fuel and diesel blendstocks. The diesel fuel will have superior blending charactaristics for cetane and cold flow properties and will be compatible with petroleum diesel and biodiesel. The cellulosic jet fuel product has recently been tested and has met the freeze point specification for JP-8.
The Hydrolysis step of REACH technology can be used to create commercial scale production with industrial levels of purity of Ethyl Levulinate (EL) a green chemical that has many uses. In addition, chemical products such as formic acid, ethyl formate, and furfural can be produced.
