EPA approves Edeniq’s Pathway Technology for D3 RINs

September 13, 2016 |

In California, Pacific Ethanol announced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved its registration for generating cellulosic ethanol and D3 cellulosic renewable identification numbers (RINs) at its Stockton plant from corn fiber using Edeniq, Inc.’s Pathway Technology™. This is the first ever EPA registration incorporating this process.

Pacific Ethanol began producing cellulosic ethanol at its 60-million-gallon capacity per year Stockton, CA plant in December 2015 using the Edeniq, Inc. Pathway Technology™, which integrates Edeniq’s Cellunator™ high shear equipment with cellulase enzymes to convert corn kernel fiber to fermentable sugars. The process enables producers to quantify the amount of cellulosic ethanol produced within their plants and comply with the registration, recordkeeping and reporting required by the EPA to generate cellulosic D3 RINs as defined by the federal Renewable Fuel Standard.
