In December 2022, our Sierra BioFuels Plant – the world’s first commercial-scale landfill waste to low-carbon transportation fuels plant – successfully produced low-carbon synthetic crude oil from landfill waste. 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 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 December 2022, we produced low-carbon synthetic crude oil from landfill waste at our Sierra BioFuels Plant, the world’s first commercial-scale plant converting household garbage into renewable transportation fuels.
Located near Reno, Nevada, our Sierra BioFuels Plant will produce approximately 11 million gallons of renewable, low-carbon syncrude each year from 175,000 tons of landfill waste.
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. Working with our strategic partners in the waste services and airline industries, 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.
Located on the U.S. Gulf Coast, our Trinity Fuels Plant is currently under development with siting identified and engineering underway.
Fulcrum NorthPoint is being actively developed at the Essar Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Cheshire, in the North West of England. Operations are expected to start in the first quarter of 2027.
