Synthesis Energy Sys Inc was founded in 2003 and incorporated in Delaware. The Company is an energy and gasification technology company that provides proprietary gasification technology systems and solutions to the energy and chemical industries. The Company's business is to create value by supplying its technology, equipment and services into global projects where lower cost low quality coals, coal wastes, municipal wastes, agricultural biomass, and other biomass feedstocks can be profitably converted through its proprietary gasification technology into clean synthesis gas, or syngas (a mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and methane), which is then used to produce a variety of high value energy and chemical products. The Company has begun its gasification activities by obtaining license for the U-GAS gasification technology, developed by the Gas Technology Institute, or GTI, a not-for-profit research and development organization located near Chicago, Illinois. Its technology is originally based on the U-GAS process developed by the Gas Technology Institute and the Company have augmented and differentiated the technology through newly developed intellectual property related to design, detailed engineering, constructing, starting up and operating its two commercial joint venture plants in China. The first commercial scale coal gasification plant is located in Shandong Province, China. It also has additional projects in various stages of development in Henan Province, China and in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China. The Company is in development stage. The Company's competitors include General Electric, Shell, CB&I and Siemens, and smaller Chinese firms offer coal gasification equipment and services. Its operations are subject to stringent federal, state and local laws and regulations governing the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise relating to environmental protection.
