In Portugal, IncBio has secured an agreement to design and build a 75,000 MT/year Biodiesel plant, for Biocosta Green Energy SA in Santa Marta, Colombia. The plant will be producing biodiesel directly from Crude Palm Oil blended with Palm Acid Oil and PFAD up to a total of 25% FFA, and will include pre-treatment, acid […]
Thought Leadership: The Toxic Substances Control Act and the Bioeconomy: Part 1, The Impact of Nomenclature on the Commercialization of Biobased Chemicals
By Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., special to The Digest When I meet people from bioeconomy companies, I ask them about their products’ status under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The most common answers I receive are: “TSCA doesn’t apply because our product is not toxic,” “TSCA doesn’t apply because our product is naturally occurring,” […]
Benefuel is a biodiesel process technology and production company based in Irving, Texas. The company has exclusive, global rights to next-generation technology for manufacturing biodiesel and bio- lubricants. Benefuel’s patented ENSEL process allows the company to produce biodiesel at a substantially lower cost than conventional methods by using lower cost, high free fatty acid feedstocks […]
The Advanced Bioeconomy is on view in Iowa. New technologies, new wealth, new jobs, falling emissions, a new energy security, bipartisanship, new hope — Communities of Progress are building. But will the presidential candidates see it? This week a report in Yahoo News suggested that Jeb Bush has been “critical of an energy policy that […]
It’s New, it’s Neo — the neodiesel companies — brimming with technologies to create cleaner alternatives to a powerhouse fuel. They have the performance, half the carbon, and a range of low-cost feedstocks to choose from. Now, neodiesel heads for Malaysia as a JV opens up ultra low-cost feedstocks with Benefuel’s ENSEL technology. From Malaysia have […]
The company is active in three areas in biofuels: a. Traditional fermentation of cereal grains and sugar cane for the commercial production of bioethanol b. Traditional transesterification for the production of biodiesel from cereal and vegetable oils. c. Commercial scale cellulosic fuel production. Overall, the company has €7256 in sales, 24,000 employees and €1.365 in […]
In Connecticut, researchers at UConn have found that the fiber crop Cannabis sativa, known as industrial hemp, has properties that make it viable and even attractive as a raw material, or feedstock, for producing biodiesel. The plant’s ability to grow in infertile soils also reduces the need to grow it on primary croplands, which can […]
In Portugal, IncBio has signed a contract with SPA Renewables S.A, to supply an 8,000MT per year biodiesel plant, to be installed in Corinth, Greece. This plant will use IncBio’s ultrasonic reactors to produce EN14214 biodiesel from Used Cooking Oil (UCO), collected locally. This will be one of the most advanced and efficient transesterification plants […]
In Missouri, Blue Sun has received BQ-9000 producer status from the National Biodiesel Accreditation Commission and National Biodiesel Board. This places Blue Sun in a select group of fewer than 50 companies that have received the certification. The NBAC’s National Biodiesel Accreditation Program, BQ-9000®, is a cooperative and voluntary program for the accreditation of producers […]
