This strategic investment will seed the development of a pilot site, while also accelerating the long term objective of being the premier platform for turning the world's waste into fuels and power. 

HOUSTON, March 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Reformed Energy Inc., a Texas corporation, announced today that it has secured a strategic investment from Riot Platforms, Inc. ("Riot"), marking a significant milestone for the company as it seeks to bring its unique plasma gasification technology to full commercialization.

Reformed Energy is a waste-to-energy company leveraging its proprietary plasma gasification technology to convert solid waste streams to power and fuels.

By processing solid and liquid waste streams in its closed plasma gasification system, Reformed Energy can effectively prevent over 99% of the methane emissions and pollution that occurs with traditional waste disposal methods while reducing the physical volume of waste by about 90%. This process yields a versatile synthesis gas that can be utilized downstream for sustainable power generation and synthetic fuel production. In short, the company's unique technology has the ability to clean up existing landfills and reduce incoming waste streams. The self-contained system does not require grid interconnection and generates carbon neutral power while actively reducing existing methane emissions. 

This investment provides Reformed Energy with the capital to begin the development of its pilot site, where municipal solid waste (MSW) will serve as the primary waste stream for generating sustainable power for its initial operations. In addition to MSW, Reformed Energy plans to incorporate tires, wood waste, industrial sludges, among other waste streams into its waste-to-energy processes.

Upon the successful completion of the pilot site development, the site will serve as a training and demonstration center for parties seeking to leverage Reformed Energy's technology. Subsequent sites will be considered for development once the pilot site achieves operational scale, commencing our growth journey towards producing synthetic fuels including sustainable aviation fuel ("SAF") and providing cheap power to potential power offtake customers, in a mass commercial scale format.

The Reformed Energy team's background spans research and development in plasma gasification, oil & gas, energy, and Bitcoin mining.

 "This investment will be a key driver of our initial growth plan," said Edward Evenson, CEO of Reformed Energy, "We are confident that our technology offers a sustainable means to reduce waste at landfill sites while generating a synthesis gas with versatile applications, such as producing low-cost power for data centers and synthetic fuels. We are excited to embark on this groundbreaking initiative with the world's leading public bitcoin mining company, Riot Platforms."

"Riot's investment and strategic partnership with Reformed Energy is an exciting opportunity to refine a transformative new source of energy," said Jason Les, CEO of Riot. "This investment amplifies Riot's vertically integrated strategy, providing us with a direct source for clean, renewable power generation to be used in future Bitcoin mining facility development. The low fixed-cost, carbon-neutral energy that Reformed Energy's technology will generate is also a clear demonstration of how Bitcoin mining incentivizes innovation and development of new renewable sources of energy."
