FastOx Pathfinder
The Department of Defense has partnered with Sierra Energy to build this FastOx® Gasification System at Fort Hunter Liggett, an Army Garrison in California.

The FastOx® Pathfinder is Sierra Energy’s first commercial system: a modular and universal waste gasification system that converts nearly any form of waste into renewable products. The initial FastOx system will produce electricity, later models are expected to produce renewable fuels such as diesel or hydrogen.

The main process of FastOx Gasification
The FastOx Gasifier is shown in blue, alongside the gas conditioning system (i.e. gas polishing, cooling and gas cleaning).

This simply-designed system delivers containerized and skid-mounted modules, including a FastOx gasifier, gas conditioning, a control room skid, the "syngas to end product" conversion module (e.g. diesel, electricity, or hydrogen production), feedstock preparation skids, and air separation equipment.

Waste pre-processing
Inside the building, waste will undergo pre-processing before it is fed into the gasifier.

The FastOx Pathfinder allows organizations and municipalities to efficiently convert their waste into clean, renewable energy while simultaneously reducing their waste disposal and energy costs. For more information on economics, visit our calculator. For information on acquiring a system, email
