In Louisiana, Dynamic Fuels has received Part 79 registration from the EPA for its renewable gasoline, allowing it to generate 1.5 Advanced Biofuel, or D5, RINS for each gallon when blended at up to 10%. When producing 75 million gallons per year, it should generate 11.25 million Advanced Biofuel RINS.

In New Jersey, Primus Green Energy reports they have produced their first sample of renewable drop-in gasoline through a proprietary combination of biomass conversion technologies that transforms herbaceous and woody biomass, in conjunction with natural gas, into high-octane gasoline. Primus Green Energy recently broke ground on an automated demonstration plant and is planning to break […]
In New Jersey, Primus Green Energy plans to raise $50 million to $100 million to this year to take its wood pellets-to-drop-in gasoline demonstration plant, which should be online by year’s end, to commercial scale by 2015. The process was first developed by Princeton University by its co-founder in 2007 who originally raised $40 million […]
In New Jersey, Primus Green Energy successfully proved its pilot scale production is capable of producing “drop-in” standard gasoline that achieves 25 percent longer runtime than regular unleaded fuel. During the company’s pilot scale production test its integrated solution of converting biomass to drop-in fuel was in continuous operation. The company plans to build its […]
In Texas, Terrabon has exceeded its goal of producing 70 gallons of renewable gasoline per ton of MSW using its patented acid fermentation technology, MixAlco, paired with CRI/Criterion’s renewable fuel catalyst technologies. The company’s demonstration plant in Bryan used cafeteria waste and paper shreddings from Texas A&M University for the trial. More on the story.
In California, GE Energy Financial Services has joined an $8 million funding round for CoolPlanetBioFuels, a start-up company developing a technology that converts low-grade biomass into high-grade fuel and carbon that can be sequestered. This venture capital investment was led by North Bridge Venture Partners, which had also led CoolPlanet’s financing round last year. CoolPlanet’s […]
Price-gouging at the pump? Up to $1 added to St Louis E85 price to discourage use of renewables, says ethanol group
“Sneaky E85 pricing strategies…give oil refiners the opportunity to wrongly claim that consumers are ‘rejecting’ E85,” says RFA. In Missouri, the Renewable Fuels Association released a new report highlighting alleged price-gouging in the St. Louis E85 market. In a new case study, the RFA tracked E85 and gasoline (E10) prices at all nine retail stations […]
According to EIA data as reported by the Renewable Fuels Association, ethanol production averaged 889,000 barrels per day last week—or 37.34 million gallons daily. RFA adds: “That is down 42,000 b/d (or 4.5%) from the week before and the lowest average since the week ending 3/21/2014. The four-week average for ethanol production stood at 917,000 […]
Renewable jet fuel makes another remove forward — as a new study concludes that delay on implementing RFS2 could be the equivalent of building 5.5 new coal-fired power plants in terms of CO2. In New York, KLM tipped that it intends to fly on Amyris-Total renewable jet fuel, as soon as it receives favorable advice […]
Declining gasoline demand, blend walls, lack of blender pumps, a fight over E15 ethanol, food vs fuel — it all looks pretty dire for the US Renewable Fuel Standard target of 36 billion gallons of renewable fuel by 2022. Or does it? Does the key to making everyone happy lie 8 miles high, in the aviation sector? […]
