In May 2022, we started operations at our Sierra BioFuels Plant - the world's first commercial-scale plant converting household garbage into clean, transportation fuels. We have identified and are developing a number of opportunities to construct our waste-to-fuels plants throughout the U.S. Fulcrum is also developing and evaluating project opportunities in select countries around the world.
We have secured feedstock for our Sierra BioFuels Plant and for our future plants from our waste services partners WM and Waste Connections, and we've entered into fuel offtake agreements with our strategic partners including bp, United Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Marubeni, World Fuel Services and Marathon Petroleum. We've also put a talented team in place with extensive experience managing, financing, constructing, and operating energy production facilities around the world.
For every one of our plants, we're making major investments that help grow the local economy, create clean energy jobs, reduce the pressure on landfills and bring energy innovation to communities across the country.
In May 2022, we started operations at the world’s first commercial-scale plant converting household garbage into renewable transportation fuels.
We've identified more than ten future plant locations in the U.S. with the capacity to produce approximately 400 million gallons of renewable, net-zero carbon transportation fuel each year.
We're also collaborating with partners across the globe to bring Fulcrum's process to international markets. With long-term waste supply agreements from our waste services partners and fuel offtake agreements with our strategic airline partners already in place, we're ready to help decarbonize aviation by supplying the airline industry with our drop-in, renewable and sustainable aviation fuel.Meet our partners
We’re developing additional facilities in the U.S, and we have access to the household garbage feedstock we need for more than ten net-zero carbon plants across the U.S.
Our Centerpoint BioFuels Plant, located just outside Chicago in Gary, Indiana, is currently under development, with permitting and engineering underway. Construction is expected to begin in 2023.
