Fulcrum Bio Energy produces low-carbon and low-cost transportation fuel from household garbage. Fulcrum uses a thermochemical process to convert municipal solid waste (or MSW), feedstock into low-carbon renewable transportation fuels including jet fuel and diesel. The company’s fuel is used by third parties such as BP, United Airlines, the U.S. Department of Defense, and independent engineers such as Leidos and Black & Veatch. As of April 2021, the company had a capacity to produce 60 million gallons of fuel.

The company's unique advantage appears to be its ability to secure large volumes of MSW by entering into long-term agreements with its waste service partners, Waste Management and Waste Connections, for the supply of MSW feedstock throughout North America. These long-term contracts eliminate supply risks for Fulcrum while ensuring production at stable cost and pricing.

In December 2022, the company produced low-carbon synthetic crude oil from landfill waste at its Sierra BioFuels Plant, the world's first commercial-scale waste-to-fuels plant as per the company, located outside Reno, Nevada in the US.

In February 2023 , Fulcrum BioEnergy received a GBP 16.8 million (USD 20.2 million) grant from the UK Department for Transport Advanced Fuels Fund to support the development of Fulcrum NorthPoint, a residual waste to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) facility at the Essar Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, North West England. The facility is expected to convert nearly 600,000 tonnes of residual waste into nearly 100 million liters of low-carbon SAF per year when it begins operations in 2027.
