Hillsborough-based Primus Green Energy announced Wednesday it has commissioned its up to 100,000 per year alternative fuel plant. The pre-commercial demonstration facility, which converts natural gas directly to gasoline, drew Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno as well as key investors to its opening event.

According to the announcement, the plant, operational for more than week, utilizes proprietary technology consisting of a four-reactor catalytic process that converts syngas derived from natural gas or other feedstocks to gasoline, jet fuel, diesel or aromatic chemicals directly, without the need for further treatment. The process produces drop-in fuels that are ready for immediate distribution, sale and consumption using the existing fuel distribution infrastructure.

The plant is capable of converting biomass feedstocks into market-ready gasoline as well, a process the facility will later use. It was built with no state or federal subsidies, leveraging a $60 million investment by Israel-based IC Green Energy, Primus said in an email statement.
