Biofuel Feedstock

For years biofuels research has focused on effectively converting biomass into usable liquid and gaseous fuels. Switchgrass, algae, wood, corn, food waste, textile waste and sewage sludge are just a few of the biomass materials that have been tested and/or processed commercially into fuel.

But missing from this list is the one carbon-rich, biomass source produced daily in almost every home around the world – household garbage, or municipal solid waste.

Unfortunately, most municipal solid waste is buried in landfills or burned in grimy incinerators. The reason is that this waste is a conglomeration of many different materials whose use in biofuel manufacturing produces inconsistent and unpredictable results. Biofuel production – whether that is liquid fuel manufacturing, gasification or alternate power producers – work best with a homogeneous feedstock.

Enter WastAway®’s proven technology. In less than 20 minutes, the WastAway system transforms non-homogeneous municipal solid waste into a homogenous, predictable, pathogen and odor-free carbon-rich renewable feedstock called Fluff®. Fluff can be used in its raw form or pelletized, depending upon your unique requirements – but both forms have been safely and effectively tested in dozens of proprietary processes.


Gasification, pyrolysis, catalytic depolymerization, Fischer-Tropsch and a host of other technologies have all proven to work better using Fluff as a feedstock in place of traditional ground municipal solid waste. Click here to contact WastAway and begin a conversation about how Fluff and WastAway pellets might be your new reliable feedstock.
