Red Rock Biofuels (“RRB”) was founded in 2011 and is positioned to be the leading producer of drop-in, renewable, low-carbon jet and diesel fuels. With broad international agreement in the aviation industry for carbon-free growth beyond 2020 under CORSIA, airlines are actively seeking low-carbon jet fuel to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. The civil aviation industry alone will require ~1.5 billion gallons per year of new renewable jet fuel production capacity to meet this commitment. The U.S. military has also emerged as a major driver in the renewable jet and diesel fuel markets. To meet these high demands for low-carbon renewable fuels, RRB will build a global portfolio of biorefineries to convert waste woody biomass into renewable jet and diesel fuels.
Through a proprietary integration of existing technologies, RRB makes the long-commercialized Fischer-Tropsch process economic at the biomass scale. By using forest and sawmill residues, Red Rock will not only avoid competition for agricultural resources, but also reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires by removing waste biomass from overgrown forests.
