Primus’ process is an evolutionary improvement to an existing process rather than a revolutionary development. Because scaling up is a straightforward engineering task based on proven processes that poses no technological barriers, the company’s ability to attract construction capital for a commercial plant is enhanced.
Primus’ first plant will use natural gas as a feedstock. The first plant and all subsequent plants will be located in close proximity to sources of feedstock, as well to offtakers — i.e. an airport in the case of jet fuel. Subsequent plants may use biomass or municipal solid waste (MSW) as their feedstock sources.
