Raven SR is a renewable fuels company that converts waste – municipal solid waste, organic waste, and methane – into high-quality, clean hydrogen and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels through our uniquely patented Steam/CO2 Reforming technology. The Raven SR process is non-combustion - producing fewer emissions – and can process multiple and mixed wastes simultaneously. The patented process dependably produces a hydrogen-rich synthetic gas regardless of feedstock utilized, extracting the highest volume of output per ton of input.Learn more
The power and efficiency of Raven SR’s technology lies in its Steam/CO2 Reforming process, created and patented by the late Dr. Terry Galloway.
The critical difference is that the Raven SR system does not allow free oxygen into the process. There is no combustion or catalysts in the process, so rather than burn our feedstock for heat, we convert it to fuel.
Raven SR’s unique Steam/CO2 Reforming process transforms municipal solid waste, organic waste and methane into clean fuels simultaneously, making it highly versatile in processing different varieties of mixed feedstocks. Raven SR’s thermolysis process is non-catalytic and completely non-combustion excluding any air or free oxygen, and reducing waste and emissions associated with traditional combustion steam reforming processes.
The Raven G-Series, a gas-to-gas system is built around the SR2 and can produce 4,500 kgs of hydrogen/day from renewable or natural gas. It utilizes stranded gas, low methane or otherwise unmonetized gas to create hydrogen affordably and efficiently. The units can be placed on landfills or stranded natural gas wells and have a conversion efficiency of >97% compared to 75% for traditional SMR.
Hydrogen, Sustainable Aviation Fuel including Jet A, Jet B and milspec JP-8, renewable diesel.
When powering fuel cells, hydrogen produces only water as a by-product, making it among the cleanest energy sources in the world. The difference in emissions for heavy-vehicles is significant. Not only is hydrogen cleaner, but using Raven SR’s hydrogen essentially turns landfill and pollution into clean energy, and at a cost that enables the widespread adoption of hydrogen as an energy source.
As the name suggests, synthetic fuels are synthetic copies of conventional fuels such as diesel and aviation fuels. They are created from hydrogen and carbon gases, rather than refined from hydrocarbons. Compared to traditional fuels, Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels are zero-sulfur content, have lower emissions, higher energy content, higher torque, synthetic jet fuel is 5% less dense, a higher flowability, lower freeze point, and higher viscosity.
Raven SR's unique two-stage system is non-catalytic and non-combustion, meaning it is easier to maintain, less expensive, a cleaner end to end process, and produces more fuel per ton of input.
Whether it is local landfills, medical waste, fugitive emissions, landfill gas, or plastic waste, Raven SR converts what is polluting our planet into clean fuels – making the planet a better place two times over.
Not only does our non-combustion process significantly reduce process emissions and particulate matters, it also reduces the second largest source of methane emissions on the planet – decomposing organic landfill waste – by diverting waste into cleaner fuels that also have fewer emissions themselves.
Raven SR's technology is modular and scalable, allowing for expansion to match feedstock availability and the easy replacement of parts. Systems are skid-mounted and can accept mixed and multiple waste streams at the same time.
