At a Glance
West Biofuels reached out to A-Gas when their incoming supply of cyclopentane was stuck at a port, which would have pushed their timeline to bring a rice-hull-fueled power plant in Northern California online months behind. Experts in supply chain logistics, A-Gas’ Performance Chemicals team had a stock of down-packed high purity cyclopentane. As such, the team was able to ship 18,200 pounds in 56 drums to the power plant within two weeks.
- Urgent cyclopentane need
- Need down packed cyclopentane in drums
- Deliver biomass-fueled renewable energy
- Secure reliable future cyclopentane supply
Economic: Elimination of downtime in bringing a power plant online
Environmental: Use of a low global warming and zero ozone depleting working fluid (high purity cyclopentane); Reduced power consumption; Renewable energy generation
Other: Access to cyclopentane in smaller volumes than ISO tanks
A-Gas’ ability to get us the cyclopentane we needed on a fast timeline allowed us to get our Organic Rankine Cycle turbines up and running, bringing biomass renewable energy to the California electricity grid. That’s a win for the environment and Californians.
