Carbon Negative Fuels
at Commercial Scale

Transforming waste-to-wealth

Yosemite Clean Energy uses a proven Gasification technology that has been applied on an industrial scale in Europe for the past 18 years, but the Yosemite plants will be the first to use this specific technology in the United States. Yosemite’s biomass gasification technology is based on research developed at the University of Vienna in Austria and successfully commercialized in Europe for 18 years. The plant will use the technology to convert biomass into syngas, with downstream conversion to green hydrogen and RNG.

One-of-a-kind business model

Beyond providing economic returns to local communities, this unique model of providing equity in exchange for biomass commitments guarantees access to a long-term feedstock supply, which ensures the continued operation of the plants and fuel generation. With the urgent need for a reliable source of low carbon fuels, our scalable proven solution, extremely low CI, and reliable feedstock, we provide an answer to offtakes’ most pressing questions.

Our Fuels

The Yosemite Clean Energy advantage

Scaleable

Scaleable from 10 MWt up to 200 MWt

Multi-revenue streams

Hydrogen, RNG, Carbon Credits and Heat Sales 

Carbon Negative

Carbon intensity well below negative 100 and with CSS can be even much lower 

Lower capital costs

Dual-fluidized bed gasification is a proven technology that reduces the need for an Air Separation unit to provide oxygen, resulting in higher system efficiency

Lower operating costs

No tonnage oxygen is required. No outside energy, like Natural Gas, is used to run the system

Feedstock flexibility

No complex feedstock preparation required and is relatively feedstock agnostic

Beyond Biofuel Plants

Our long-term plan includes building a vertically integrated infrastructure network that will make our zero-emission fuels available to ports, municipalities, fleet owners, and transit agencies. This infrastructure will include public fueling stations for light duty and heavy-duty vehicles on major highway corridors as well as private fueling for entities looking for off-road solutions.
