Comparing BioGTL to Larger Plants - White Paper

NOTE: This paper should be read in conjunction with our white paper – “BioGTL Overview - Feb 2024” which describes EFT’s technology for building small scale (100 and 500 BPD) plants that convert RNG and biogas into liquid transportation fuels.

BioGTL is a “Paradigm Shift” - The “knee jerk” reaction to small scale plants is typically “Why would anyone want to build a plant that small? It could never be economical.” But it can! It defies all traditional views of economy of scale. Once you understand and accept the concepts behind this approach, the surprise comes when you compare the results of building multiple small plants to the results of building only one “more traditional” large plant.

EFT has worked with project developers on several renewable fuel projects, most of which never came to fruition. A few have. The timeframe for a large plant (1,000 BPD or more) is significant. When you include project development, fund raising, cost estimates, offtake agreements, detailed engineering, construction and start-up, these plants frequently take 5 years or more to reach full operation.
