BioMax® technology has made our value-from-waste process a global leader.


The BioMax Difference

Our BioMax® Gasification System converts carbon-rich, organic feedstocks into a clean gas - called "syngas."

Unlike thermal energy derived from incineration of organic feedstocks, the BioMax® syngas is a clean burning, renewable gas.

zero-waste, clean gasification. No incineration.

Our gasification technology creates an extremely low level of tar, meaning the systems requires zero water for gas cleanup and produces no waste water, unlike most gasification systems.

carbon negative energy generation.

From the feedstock entering the system to the electricity produced by the installed generator sets, the BioMax® system is carbon negative. Each BioMax® unit sequesters one ounce of carbon per kWh, or approximately 35 tons of sequestered carbon each year, safely storing this carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. In stark contrast, natural gas power plants release approximately 19 ounces of carbon dioxide per kWh.
