Raven SR, a Wyoming renewable fuels company, has signed a letter of intent with Zanker Recycling to provide the site and feedstock for Raven SR’s first 25 dry-tonne commercial renewable hydrogen production facility, based on its multi-patented Steam/CO2 patented system.

Zanker Recycling in San Jose, California, is a solid waste and recycling company which processes more than 2,600 tonnes of mixed debris per day, diverting more than 80% of waste they receive from landfilling.

“We are thrilled to partner with Zanker Recycling to make our first renewable fuel facility a reality and divert even more waste from their landfills, turning it into clean, non-combustion fuel sources,” said Matt Murdock, CEO of Raven SR.

“This letter of intent is an important first step in bringing green, renewable hydrogen to the northern California market to help meet the California Energy Commission’s goal that transportation hydrogen be at least 33% renewable and have a carbon intensity of 30 or less. Our fuels meet and exceed that requirement, and the California EPA has previously ruled our technology as a non-incineration process.”

Raven SR’s non-combustion, multi-patented, Steam/CO2 reforming process converts mixed feedstock (biogenic and non-biogenic) into renewable fuel products such as hydrogen, diesel, methane and Fischer-Tropsch fuels.

The non-combustion process has minimal air emissions and significantly reduces greenhouse gases from start to finish. The skid mounted technology is designed to flexibly switch between input and outputs, and is easily scalable. 

Raven SR is contracting with Fluor Corporation on the final design engineering for its production facilities and is working to secure the financing for the San Jose and additional facilities across the US and Caribbean.

“Raven SR can eliminate the garbage piling up in our cities and turn it into low or zero-emission fuels through a method that ensures air quality, and Zanker’s collaboration on this hydrogen fuel project is an ideal means to achieve these goals,” added Murdock.
