Tweet Peril and Promise from Haiti to Hawaii: a two-part series Geology denies them fossil fuels for cheap fuel, powerful export incomes, or fertilizers. Isolation brings them thin soils better suited to growing wood than staple crops. Deforestation is often rampant. Energy dependency leads to trade imbalances and weak currencies that make importing foreign technology [...]
Tweet Readers inundate the Digest with old slide shows, perspective, anecdotes. On Friday morning, the Digest published “Who killed $2.18 gasoline?”, reviewing an explosive investigative report from Bloomberg that itself looked at low-cost, low-carbon fuels technology developed by Catchlight Energy. “They say [Chevron is] pushing back against the California rule because it demands technology that [...]
Tweet The IEA Task 39 group publishes its latest report on advanced biofuels — how is the global industry progressing? The International Energy Agency, through its Task 39 group, has published its 207-page report on the “Status of Advanced Biofuels Demonstration Facilities in 2012″. The report, in its pages, contains detailed project summaries as well [...]
Tweet HydroMan may do his hydrogen-shift thing via water, at will – but outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have some hydrogen issues. Psst! Like cutting out a fossil hydrogen dependency for many biofuels. But, new pathways ensure that the status hydroquo may not last for long. A numbers of readers responding to “Biofuels [...]
Tweet Show me the gallons? Where’s all the algae fuel, you ask? In Sapphire Energy’s case, it’s headed for Tesoro. In California, Sapphire Energy announced it has entered into a commercial agreement to sell crude oil from Sapphire Energy’s Green Crude Farm in Columbus, New Mexico to Tesoro. “The Green Crude Farm recently reached a new [...]
Tweet Today on Twitter: tirepyrolysis Biofuels to boom by 2020 as cellulosic ethanol becomes competitive, reports say: http://t.co/otKMF96TKs Tby_Bruce @FoodSecurityUK climate; environment, sustainability; biofuels, rising demand driving up food price; chronic underinvestment in agriculture E2Wire: Funding bill amendments target military biofuels eyesonthebay Bacterium found in Bay decomposes seagrass and can be useful to produce biofuels & other products.
Tweet In North Carolina, the Bioenergy Deployment Consortium is having its Spring Symposium form 22 to 24 March in Greensboro. At the request of members Pyrolysis oil (wood oil or bio-oil) will be featured. Two tours of pilot plants will be included.
Tweet Fast pyrolysis developer plans to rapidly expand green benzene and toluene production in 2013 for downstream product development purposes. Opens new pilot plant, R&D facility in New York; green BTX platform ready to emerge. To the outsider, a green BTX probably sounds like a really cool bike for a 13-year old. In the world [...]
Tweet In Colorado, a screening tool from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) eases and greatly quickens one of the thorniest tasks in the biofuels industry: determining cell wall chemistry to find plants with ideal genes. NREL’s new High-Throughput Analytical Pyrolysis tool (HTAP) can thoroughly analyze hundreds of biomass samples a day [...]
Tweet New renewable feedstock OKs. Good news, bad, neutral? The Digest looks in depth at the latest from EPA. In Washington, the US Environmental Protection Agency issued a final rule qualifying biofuels produced from camelina oil as biomass-based diesel or advanced biofuel, as well as biofuels from energy cane which qualify as cellulosic biofuel. This [...]
