EPA Issues Proposed RVOs For Biofuel Industry In 2019

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued proposed volume requirements for 2019 under the Renewable Fuel Standard program calling, among other things, for a 30% increase in biogas related fuel. 381 million gallons of cellulosic biofuel are called for the in the proposed rule by 2019. EPA estimates that the majority of this – […]

Montana Tribes Part Of Renewable Energy Work

Leftover tree parts from logging operations usually end up as piles of useless ash, but academic researchers and tribal forestry officials hope that recent projects will result in less waste and a possible energy market for local forest products. Alaska Airlines hopes to fly a jet with biofuels produced by processing trees from the Flathead […]

Biofuels Industry Hopeful At 2014 DOE Biomass Conference

At the Department of Energy’s two-day conference Biomass 2014: Growing the Future Bioeconomy, technologies, feedstocks, and innovation in the bioenergy sector were on display. Attendees celebrated four U.S. advanced cellulosic biofuel refineries that are close to commercial production, several public-private partnerships that have spurred research and development of biofuels, and young scientists who are the […]

Sundrop Fuels Awards $500 Million Louisiana Biofuel Plant Contract To IHI E&C

Sundrop Fuels, a Colorado-based advanced biofuels company, has awarded a contract to engineering and construction services firm IHI E&C International to develop a $500m combined commercial biofuel production and technology demonstration plant in Boyce, Louisiana. Located one mile west of Alexandria, the facility is estimated to produce 60 million gallons of finished gasoline from natural […]

Can the U.S. Still Meet Its 2022 Biofuels Targets?

In Washington, the U.S. Energy Information Administration released a map and commentary on its website this week — indicating the spread of commercial-scale cellulosic biofuels, while cautioning that “EIA’s forecasts and projections to date have proven to be too optimistic, as volumes have been below expectations.” EIA went on to state: “Looking forward, important challenges […]

Beta Renewables Sees 2015 As Boom Year For Cellulosic Biofuels

Biofuels made from wood waste and sugarcane have languished well below expectations for years but new production coming on line promises explosive growth by 2015, the chief executive of producer Beta Renewables said on Monday. The United States produced just 20,000 gallons of so-called cellulosic biofuel last year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. […]

KiOR Turning Wood Chips Into Gasoline

KiOR, a renewable fuel start-up based in Pasadena, Tex., said Thursday that it had produced a crude oil made from wood chips at a plant in Mississippi and expected to refine it into gasoline and diesel and sell it commercially later this month. That would be a first for the cellulosic biofuel sector. In a […]

KiOR Granted Registration For Cellulosic Biofuel

Biofuels producer KiOR recently received Part 79 registration for its Renewable Gasoline Blendstock 5 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The registration, required by manufacturers of motor vehicle fuels by the EPA, must be completed prior to the sale of the product. According to KiOR President and CEO Fred Cannon, KiOR’s action represents the […]

Energy-Dense Biofuel From Cellulose Close To Being Economical

A new Purdue University-developed process for creating biofuels has shown potential to be cost-effective for production scale, opening the door for moving beyond the laboratory setting. A Purdue economic analysis shows that the cost of the thermo-chemical H2Bioil method is competitive when crude oil is about $100 per barrel when using certain energy methods to […]
