TCG Overview

Working toward a better future since 2006

TCG Global LLC (TCG) designs, builds, and sells gasification plants. Moreover, we convert any carbon-containing feedstock such as biomass, coal, petroleum coke, or municipal solid waste into Syngas. This primarily consists of hydrogen (H) and carbon monoxide (CO). The Syngas produced by this gasification process results in a clean, dry, flexible fuel. It can (1) burn to create heat and electricity and (2) pass through any of several different catalysts to produce fluids such as alcohols and transportation fuels, including clean-burning diesel. Additionally, it can (3) supply pure hydrogen gas for multiple applications.

We officially debuted in 2010. After our debut, we sought to further the commercialization of the TCG patented gasification technology. The company uses the technology use rights of Wiley Engineering, Inc. – founded in 1981. Moreover, this company provided almost 40 years of mining consulting services. They additionally work on projects in the U.S. and internationally with a specialization in coal and clean coal technology. Most recently, its focus consists of developing and constructing gasification plants. Red Lion Bio-Energy, Toledo, Ohio purchased the initial plant constructed by Wiley in 2007.

TCG Global, LLC uses patents, and pending patents of Thermo Technologies, LLC exclusively licensed to Thermo Conversions, LLC. Therefore under agreement, this provides rights to TCG Global, LLC to design, build, own, operate, and market gasification plants using the technology.

Mark Wiley’s legacy brought a considerable wealth of project development experience to TCG. During his tenure with Consolidated Coal Company and throughout his 36-year career as an independent consultant/operator in the coal industry, Mr. Wiley built and operated eight commercially successful plants. In addition, he worked on countless other projects. TCG’s staff has collectively spent decades developing and maintaining very close relationships with equipment fabricators and major EPC contractors. Moreover, TCG has the requisite experience and industry relationships to build projects ahead of schedule and under budget:

  • The current team at TCG built the first commercial gasifier (based on TCG technology) in about 12 months, starting in late 2006. Additionally, they successfully re-deployed the gasifier from Denver to Toledo in early 2008. They had the system permitted and operational in Toledo in less than 90 days.
  • In Q4 of 2011, TCG identified an opportunity to develop three refined coal facilities. All of them needed to be completed and certified as operational by December 31, 2011. Despite an industry standard of three to six months of fabrication per refined coal system, TCG designed, fabricated, installed and certified three systems in 10 weeks. Subsequently, TCG completed this task at 50% the cost of comparable systems.
