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. The Yosemite plants will be the first to use this specific technology in combination with other commercially proven technologies to provide a unique process to produce renewable biofuels. Yosemite’s biomass gasification technology from the University of Vienna in Austria is where R&D is continually performed. The plant will use the technology to convert biomass into syngas, with downstream conversion to green hydrogen and RNG.

A business model that promotes the democratization of clean energy supply

Beyond providing the cleanest fuels, our model returns the highest value back to the wood supplier. By exchanging equity in the biofuels plants for waste wood commitments, we secure long-term feedstock supply ensuring the continued operation of the plants and a reliable long-term production of clean fuels. We exist to serve the owners of waste wood. The new reality is that waste wood is the new “mineral right” and is owned by the agriculture and forest communities across the state. Our commitment to the owners of waste wood is to turn their current liability into a renewable asset, serving both their economic sustainability and the health of our environment. 

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 a private fueling solution for a fleets and industry.
