About ThermoChem Recovery International

ThermoChem Recovery International markets a gasification technology that aims to transform the pulp and paper industry into biorefineries which will not only produce paper, but also renewable energy in the form of green electric power and bio-based fuels and chemicals. TRI's gasification process converts cellulosic feedstocks (including wood chips, bark, forest residuals, agricultural waste and energy crops) into a synthesis gas ("syngas") which can be used to replace natural gas and fuel oil, and can be converted into biofuels and biochemicals. Additionally, per the company, TRI's technology is capable of recovering energy and chemicals from spent pulping liquors. TRI licenses its gasification technology, and aims to provide specialized equipment and engineering services to pulp and paper companies seeking to integrate TRI's process into their mill operations. TRI's proven technology currently is in commercial use at two mills in the U.S. and Canada.

Velocys, TRI form strategic partnership

Jan 29, 2017

January 29, 2017 | Jim Lane In the UK, Velocys and ThermoChem Recovery International signed  a strategic alliance under which TRI will be Velocys’ preferred supplier of gasification systems for its biomass-to-liquids plants. The agreement will see the alliance partners rapidly deploy an integrated biorefinery offering that combines Velocys’ Fischer-Tropsch (FT) technology with TRI’s proven gasification technology. The partners have already started a joint development of the engineering design for a 1,400 barrel per day BTL plant to produce renewable diesel and jet fuels from woody biomass. TRI will support Velocys and its partners to further optimise overall plant cost and the financing of BTL plants through, for example, accessing governmental loan guarantee processes and securing independent engineering reviews. A key next step will be an integrated technology demonstration; Velocys will relocate its skid-mounted pilot plant from Ohio to the TRI facility in North Carolina. The joint demonstration has been selected for support as part of a competitive award granted by the US Department of Energy for the development of smaller scale integrated biorefineries. This is the second strategic partnership that has been agreed since a review of Velocys’ strategy was completed in 4Q 2016. A core theme of the new strategy is to deliver, jointly with partners such as TRI, a “one-stop-shop” offer to customers – a fully integrated and financed, cost effective and operations-ready plant solution. David Pummell, CEO of Velocys, said: “We are excited to be working with TRI who we believe have best-in-class gasification technology. We believe our integrated technology solution will be a proven and financeable route to cost-effective plants producing premium renewable fuels. It represents a very significant step forward in the development of a fully integrated offer to our customers, increasing our control over delivery through world class partnerships. I look forward to providing further details of this deal and other strategic alliances that will support our new strategy.” Dan Burciaga, President & CEO of TRI, said: “We know that the close integration of syngas conversion technologies with TRI’s gasification platform can yield superior integrated biorefineries and are convinced that the high intensity Velocys FT process will provide further enhancements. Multiple independent engineers have validated a number of waste to fuels projects that were proven in our demonstration plant. The TRI team looks forward to working with Velocys and its partners at an accelerated pace towards commercial renewable fuel facilities and, as part of that collaborative work, we intend to integrate the Velocys FT process into our demonstration facility within the year.”
