Solvent Rescue is a leading fuels research based in Christchurch. Our work offers environmental solutions. We have two key areas of focus – algae and wood cellulosic materials.

Solvent Rescue has an ongoing project of liquid fuel production from algae. The algae will come from special high rate ponds built by NIWA as part of the water treatment processing at the Bromley ponds. The algae grow by photosynthesis and make use of the nutrients left in the waste water. The most common available organic matter is woody cellulosic material. This is the major component of most trees, shrubs, and grasses. Solvent Rescue has the ability and plant to make extractions at high pressure and temperature.
