Primus Green Energy funds studies of alternative fuels' sustainability and economic viability.
It's almost an energy-dream-come-true: a source of low-cost, cleaner fuel that already fits into the developed petroleum distribution system and internal combustion engines. But if Hillsborough-based Primus Green Energy is going to succeed in getting widespread adoption of its system for converting natural or methane gas to a high-octane—but cleaner burner—substitute for the gasoline in your car, the company will need to prove its method of gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology is not only sustainable but also economically viable. To help find out, the company recently announced a grant to Princeton University's Christodoulos Floudas, Ph.D., an expert in chemical process systems engineering, with a specific emphasis on process synthesis and …

State and federal officials attend plant dedication ceremony.
As fuel prices have gone up, the hunt to find alternative fuel sources has been a major issue in the United States and the rest of the world. A Hillsborough company announced last week its plans to aid in the search—with the results to prove it. Primus Green Energy has developed a biomass-to-gasoline fuel by transforming wood pellets into 93-octane gasoline that, as demonstrated by Primus CEO Robert J. Johnsen when he started a car fueled by the gasoline, can work as an alternative to crude oil for as low as $65 per barrel once mass production begins. The company announced this milestone during a ceremony last Friday to dedicate its Hillsborough-based demonstration plant, located at 219 Homestead Road. “Since crude (oil) is now trading for…
