Cobalt Technologies Inc. signed an exclusive global cooperation and supply agreement with Andritz Inc. to integrate its proprietary lignocellulosic pretreatment process for the production of n-butanol with Andritz's customized pretreatment systems.
Cellulosic ethanol projects around the globe are nearing completion, attendees at the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo learned in breakout sessions featuring reports from several companies bringing these technologies to commercialization.
When making cellulosic ethanol from plants, one problem is what to do with a woody agricultural waste product called lignin. The old adage in the pulp industry has been that one can make anything from lignin except money.
Purdue University researchers are launching a company, Spero Energy Inc., focusing on an innovative process that could revolutionize how lignocellulosic biomass is used to make biofuels and other bio-based products and chemicals.
A unique bioreactor at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory can help find the ideal locations for farms to produce algae that could someday compete with renewable diesel, cellulosic ethanol, and other petroleum alternatives.
The U.S. EPA has published renewable identification number (RIN) data for January, reporting the first generation of cellulosic ethanol RINs since 2012. Cellulosic RINs were generated last year, but those RINs were for drop-in gasoline and diesel.
