Initial applications include liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), kerosene, acrylics and hypersonic fuels, but that’s just the start of our journey
Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels by converting waste into liquefied petroleum gas. C3’s LPG can be produced locally whether you’re in Washington or Hawaii, using seawater fermentation technology.
Production is by fermentation and photocatalysis using waste biomass with CO₂ carbon capture and utilisation from atmosphere and direct industrial processes. Bio-LPG uses waste biomass and CO₂ to generate butyrate and related molecules which are then converted to propane and butane.
A replacement for current oil-based petrochemical fuels that can drop into existing commercial jet engines. C3 Kerosene is cleaner and performs better. In addition, the ability to manufacture the product on-site eliminates the significant costs of fuel transportation.
As the fuel is similar to conventional kerosene, the technology can be dropped into existing engines without modification, which makes the transition to C3 synthetic fuels a seamless process.
Paving the way to sustainable and non-toxic industrial manufacturing of commodity chemicals, C3’s Acrylics uses seawater as the medium for the biotechnology. The fuel can be made in bulk under industrial, non-sterile conditions from waste feedstocks in an economical and efficient bioprocess.
Acrylic is one of the most commonly used plastic materials and is distributed across most plastic manufacturers globally. C3 Acrylics will use biomass waste to feed fermentation which produces acrylic precursor molecules, replacing acrylic fibres derived from fossil fuels. Hence C3 Acrylics is produced from a biological product, decoupling production from a fossil fuel base.
Producing superior high-energy accelerants that are used to fly spacecrafts and rockets. These speciality fuels are made sustainably without hazardous waste, eliminate our reliance on fossil fuels while also being more cost-effective.
This innovative and scalable process opens clean routes to speciality fuels and will enable the first cost-efficient and environmentally sustainable route to hypersonic fuels production.
