Steeper Energy – Hydrofaction™

Hydrofaction™ is Steeper Energy’s proprietary implementation of hydrothermal liquefaction which applies supercritical water as a reaction medium for the conversion of biomass directly into a high-energy density renewable crude oil, referred to as Hydrofaction™ Oil. Steeper’s unique process mimics and accelerates nature by subjecting wet biomass to heat and high pressure.

Precision Combustion, Inc. – CO2 to Fuels

Uses intermittent solar power by employing a multi-functional material (calcium carbonate; CaCO3). This material enables the alternating capture and release of solar energy, while simultaneously converting carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) to syngas, which is then readily convertible into a range of chemicals or fuels. The conversion process will make use of DOE’s concentrated solar power technology.
