With DG Fuels Technology, the Hydrogen Transportation Future is Here Today
DG Fuels is an emerging leader in renewable hydrogen and biogenic based, synthetic low emissions aviation and diesel fuel. The DG Fuels’ technology does not require the development of new engines or an expanded hydrogen transportation and storage infrastructure. DG Fuels’ innovative technology produces a renewables-based replacement fuel for the aircraft, locomotives and trucks that are in use today.
Conventional petrochemical refineries generally utilize about 85% of the carbon in crude oil feedstock into products. While gas–to–liquids refineries convert about 60% of the carbon in natural gas feedstock into products.
Historically, cellulosic biofuels facilities have typically utilized only about 25% of the carbon in their biomass feedstock into products.
In an important technological step forward DG Fuels’ synergistic process breaks the carbon utilization barrier and has achieved a utilization efficiency of up to 93%. Increased carbon utilization efficiency of this extent combined with renewable hydrogen in a drop in replacement fuel results in more than 100% lower greenhouse gas emissions on a full life cycle basis.
Additionally, DG Fuels carbonized liquid hydrogen replacement fuel has a net 7% improved energy density than conventional fuels improving payload or range dynamics. In the example of a fully fueled Boeing 747 aircraft, it would have an additional 17,500 lb. payload for the same range.
DG Fuels synergistic system results in jet fuel with a negative CO2 life cycle of 104.2% less (-3.5 gCO2e/MJ) than conventional jet fuel from petroleum which has an average of 94 gCO2e/MJ.
