TECHNOLOGY SUPPORTING A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

FEA aims to commercialise in Australia and scale-up technology that is a leader in achieving the transition to a lower-carbon economy.

FEA’s first project will produce renewable fuel and other valuable by-products from lignocellulosic materials.

Our renewable diesel is produced predominantly from sustainably sourced biomass. The lignocellulosic materials are being sourced from forestry waste including fire-affected biomass, construction and demolition or agricultural waste streams.  FEA will be supporting the production of energy crops that help deliver more sustainable and better ecological outcomes for landholders.

The process produces syngas through a high-temperature pyrolysis process (1100°C) in the absence of oxygen and also produces high-quality biochar. The syngas is further processed and distilled to produce renewable diesel. Valuable by-products produced include high-quality, graphene-rich biochar, wood vinegar, water and heat.

WHAT SETS US APART

HIGH-TEMPERATURE PYROLYSIS

Our pyrolysis process is conducted at 1100°C in the absence of oxygen, producing syngas and high-quality biochar. The syngas is further processed and distilled to produce renewable diesel.

The absence of oxygen in our renewable diesel allows it to be used as a replacement to traditional diesel without the requirement to upgrade machinery.

 

 

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED BIOMASS

Lignocellulosic materials are sourced from forestry waste, including fire-affected biomass, construction and demolition or agricultural waste streams.

FEA supports the production of energy crops that help deliver more sustainable and better ecological outcomes for landholders.

 

VALUABLE BY-PRODUCTS

High-quality, graphene-rich biochar, wood vinegar, water and heat are all valuable by-products that feed into a circular economy.

SUPERIOR ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

FEA is providing regional Australia the opportunity to achieve fuel security and reduce the reliance on imported fuel.  Our process supports an innovative circular economy and ensures that each tonne of biomass achieves the highest potential economic, social and environmental outcomes for each region.

In addition to providing the best value add from existing biomass resources, FEA aims to work with farmers, forestry companies and carbon project developers to support the energy crops that are complementary to food production and support the restoration of the landscape.

SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

FUEL SECURITY

A product produced in Western Australia guarantees supply for local uses.

 

CARBON NEGATIVE

Offsets up to 85,000 tonnes of carbon per annum per project. Avoids current practice of burning or exporting biomass.

 

DECARBONISE OPERATIONS

18 million litres per annum per project of drop-in-capable renewable fuel, helping businesses and government reduce carbon footprint without needing to modify existing infrastructure.

 

REDUCED TRANSPORT COSTS

Each project requires just 50-55,000 dry tonnes per annum of biomass and can be located close to the biomass source.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Investment in the first project sparks a fully sustainable and local circular economy project, creating around 120 direct and indirect jobs.

 

VALUE-ADDED BY-PRODUCTS

8,300 tonnes of biochar and 6.5m litres of wood vinegar per project per annum.

 

SCALABLE & REPLICABLE

Modular design is fully scalable with to suit biomass resources.
