Rubedo literally performs modern day alchemy, using heat but no combustion, to convert any kind of waste into useful and valuable products utilizing the time-tested process of pyrolysis. Rubedo was named after, and created to deliver, a process that, like the ancient alchemists, turns lead, or in our case "waste," into the precious gold of resources -- clean power, clean fuels, industrial and agricultural products. The Rubedo business model is built upon a New Energy Reality, the approaching future where energy is increasingly Distributed, Clean, Green and Renewable...

DISTRIBUTED

Rubedo's selected systems run on any organic "feedstock" from wood bio-mass to human and animal bio-solids, from cellulosic grasses to municipal solid waste, meeting all government incentive criteria for "power from renewable sources."

CLEAN

"Clean energy" does not mean energy from green or non-polluting sources, it means energy that flows in a steady, reliable, predictable way, meeting the highest electrical engineering standards to insure operational integrity. Rubedo understands this essential concept and assures clean energy to the customer or the Grid.

GREEN

Rubedo cleanly reduces waste streams by 90%, eliminating them as a pollution source, converting them further to an ultra clean gas, which replaces fossil fuels for energy production.  The process eliminates multiple GHG sources in multiple ways. It also produces bio-char, which sequesters carbon and increases plant yields, which in turn further reduce GHG’s.  Rubedo’s fast pyrolysis produces carbon negative, not just carbon neutral, energy and useful co-products.  MSW, plastics, tires, coal, manures and refinery waste are all feedstocks Rubedo can process.
