Ensyn's biocrude is a low carbon fuel for heating and cooling that can be combusted in conventional commercial and industrial grade boilers. Ensyn's biocrude, branded Low Carbon Fuel Oil (LCFO) for heating and cooling applications, has been used by Ensyn and its partners in industrial boilers for over 25 years. Ensyn is now building a broader heating and cooling business by introducing LCFO in a diverse range of package and utility grade boilers, for use by our institutional and utility customers.
In 2014 Ensyn Fuels signed a five year commercial contract (with extension rights) with Memorial Hospital, North Conway, New Hampshire. This contract has allowed Memorial to switch 100% of its heating needs to LCFO. Deliveries under this contract have taken place since August 2014 and are ongoing. This contract has allowed Memorial to lower the GHG footprint from its heating operations by an estimated 85%.
In 2015 Ensyn Fuels signed a five year contract (with extension rights) with Youngstown Thermal LLC for the supply of LCFO for their district heating operations. Youngstown Thermal is the owner and operator of the district energy system in Youngstown, Ohio. Deliveries began in May of 2016.
Ensyn’s LCFO heating oil sales to US customers generate D7 cellulosic RINs under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s RFS program, enhancing project economics.
Ensyn is executing its heating and cooling business with several leading industrial companies with expertise and capabilities in burner and boiler technology as well as fuels storage and distribution.
Memorial Hospital has been running its heating system on 100% LCFO since August 2014
