Fulcrum BioEnergy, a company based out of Pleasanton, Calif., has developed a process to convert household trash into biofuel. The company pioneered a technology that transforms municipal solid waste into low-carbon transportation fuels such as jet fuel and diesel. Fulcrum is in the process of building its first commercial plant located in northern Nevada’s Tahoe Reno Industrial Center (TRIC). The facility will have capacity to produce 11 million gallons of fuel per year once operational.
