Synthesis EnergySynthesis Energy Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: SES) is an alternative energy company that develops gasification systems for chemical and energy producers. It is based in Houston and has operated since 2003.

Gasification is a process used to turn waste materials into synthetic gas. Although carbon materials like coal and organic waste are used in gasification, it is considered a clean form of energy. It doesn’t involve combustion but instead uses a closed reactor system to develop synthetic gas. This significantly reduces pollution while resulting in a highly viable energy product.

Synthesis Energy exploded in the stock market this week, after it was revealed that it would be acquiring Australian Future Energy, a leading synthetic gas company. This all-stock deal will give Synthesis Energy one of the strongest positions in its addressable market. This would facilitate future growth while giving the company control of natural resources used to produce synthetic gas.

Stock has climbed massively in the last few days, but it remains a bargain below $10. Investors looking for a long-term stake in the alternative gas market should seriously consider this stock in the final quarter.
