Business Case


The Problem:

The fundamental challenge facing the renewable jet fuel industry today is that there are simply no commercial quantities of renewable jet fuel available.

Why does this problem exist?  Because there is insufficient feedstock combined with an inadequate supply chain infrastructure.

How has Byogy overcome this fundamental problem?  Byogy’s feedstock is ANY source of bio ethanol, and Byogy’s renewable jet fuel is a direct replacement and drop-in for petroleum based jet fuel. Therefore, today, Byogy can produce commercial scale quantities of its renewable jet fuel and ship it from the bio-refinery through the existing jet fuel distribution system to the wing of the airplane with no new infrastructure requirements.

Byogy’s technology is the nexus which solves 2 major business challenges for 2 large, mature global industries which have never before been connected:

“A New Global Industry Partnership”


The ethanol industry benefit
Byogy will allow the global ethanol industry to make more long term sustainable profit from their existing investments by producing the highest value advanced bio fuel with only a nominal capital expense.

The aviation industry benefit 
Byogy will supply the means to procure significant commercial quantities of certified renewable jet fuel and seed the development of a global renewable jet fuel supply chain allowing commercial airlines and military divisions to offset their 100% dependence on jet fuel refined from crude oil.

Byogy has developed a direct process which converts “ANY” source of bio ethanol into jet fuel which can be used by any commercial or military jet turbine aircraft and engines without changing any infrastructure.

Supporting Facts:

Bio Ethanol production is a mature global Industry
Since a conventional global ethanol industry already exists, Byogy  has access to sufficient renewable bio ethanol feedstock to make its first billion gallons of renewable jet fuel by 2014 and perhaps earlier.

Byogy`s renewable jet fuel needs no new infrastructure
Byogy does not need to build new biorefineries or buy and retro-fit existing ethanol plants to make different alcohols, like bio butanol in order to make renewable biojet.

Byogy`s jet fuel needs no new feedstocks
Byogy utilizes any source of ordinary bio ethanol and converts it directly into renewable jet fuel.

Quick Market Entry
Byogy can enter the market quickly through its ability to make bio-jet fuel from any source of bio ethanol

Secure largest market share earlier than most competitors
Byogy has the ability to secure the largest market share and be the industry`s low cost producer of renewable jet fuel a full decade before the most optimistic projections from most other competitive processes.

The Hydrogen Hoax
There is no need for large quantities of expensive externally supplied hydrogen from fossil fuel sources or massive hydrogen manufacturing infrastructure to make renewable jet fuel or gasoline as most competitive processes require.

There is no need to invent or develop new “magic” bugs or enzymes
Byogy does not require the use, development, or invention of any new or expensive enzymes, genetically modified organisms or breakthroughs in industrial biotechnology. Byogy’s process technology can be adapted to any current bio ethanol production plant.

There is no need to make bio-butanol or other mixed alcohols
It is completely unnecessary to invent new ways and means to make bio-butanol or other mixed alcohols, in order to make high quality, cost competitive renewable jet fuel. Byogy can produce advanced, renewable jet fuel from ordinary bio ethanol.  Byogy’s technology can take the hydrous ethanol from an ethanol plant (before the molecular sieve) and process a direct conversion to jet fuel and gasoline. There is no need to retrofit an exisiting ethanol plant or affect its operation.
