Renergi Pty Ltd was established in late 2012 to commercialise renewable energy technologies developed at Curtin University. The company has exclusive rights to technology for:
- conversion of biomass to electricity via a gasification process
- production of liquid fuels from biomass that can be mixed with petrol or diesel.
A 100 kg/hr demonstration plant has been built for the gasification technology, for the production of a clean-burning, low-tar gas that can produce electricity at a low cost. The liquid fuels technology uses a two-stage process to pyrolyse and refine biomass into a useful fuel. Renergi aims to continue to develop and demonstrate biomass-to-energy technology, and to seek opportunities to enter the market.
