In California, Greenbelt Resources Corporation and Diversified Ethanol announced delivery of a distillation module to the University of Florida. The distillation module is installed as part of the $20 million Stan Mayfield Bio Refinery Pilot Plant at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences laboratory at the Buckeye Technology facility in Taylor County, Florida. The bio refinery plant is pioneering the use of advanced technology and processes for proving that cellulosic biomass can be converted to usable byproducts such as fuel ethanol.
The University of Florida selected Greenbelt and Diversified for their technology solution to validate that fuel ethanol would result from the plant process. The distillation module arrived ready for operation following an onsite system test and commissioning to confirm its full working condition. Acceptance of the distillation portion of the system marks the first completed commercial system sale for Greenbelt Resources and Diversified Ethanol.
