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 […]
How do I save $$ and save on CO2? Looking at the hard data on biofuels, hybrids, all-electric, and gasoline
What’s the best way to maximize the value for your transportation dollar — cost per mile, and in delivering CO2 emission reductions? If you guessed “all electric”, dial again. But if you opted for the little-understood world of “E85″, you’re in for a treat. Good value, isn’t that important to you? Many readers tell us […]
By James Evangelow & Sam Nejame, Special to the Digest If an advertising professional were writing the copy, renewable isobutanol would be called “The new and improved ethanol”. It overcomes essentially all the major deficiencies of ethanol as a fuel and can be produced in an ethanol plant. However, relentless litigation, waning interest in biofuels […]
