How Can We Increase The Production Of Biofuels From Waste?
In this exclusive interview, we sit down with Antonio Alfonso Avello, Managing Director of FCC Environment, to discuss the shift from PPP solutions to merchant plants, the scope for renewable fuel production and how FCC Environment is revolutionising the industry with its innovative Methamorphosis project. Hear directly from FCC Environment at the World Waste to Energy & Resources Summit on May 23 -24, where they will be joining the debate on the Circular Economy and Opportunities for Growth in International...
NBB Argues for Higher Advanced-Biofuel Volumes Before the D.C. Court of Appeals
Today the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) for 2014-16. The NBB challenged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) interpretation and use of its waiver authority under the RFS statute. “Today’s case provides a strong opportunity to defend higher advanced-biofuel volumes. Clear market signals from more robust EPA requirements will encourage continued growth in America&rsq...
Canada Publishes Draft Assessment Of Fungus For Biofuels Production
On February 4, 2017, the Canadian Department of the Environment and the Department of Health published in the Canada Gazette the draft screening assessment of the commercially relevant fungus, Trichoderma reesei, stating that the organism is nontoxic and does not require regulatory action under Section 77 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA).Following a screening assessment, Trichoderma reesei , which is used to convert biomass to biofuels and sugars and to produce food and health products,...
EPA seeks comments on GHG analysis of sugar beets for biofuel feedstock
On January 18, 2017, Christopher Grundler, the Director of the Office of Transportation and Air Quality for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), signed a notice inviting comment on its analysis of the upstream greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the production of sugar beets for use as biofuel feedstock. The notice describes the analysis performed, which considers the extraction of non-cellulosic beet sugar for conversion to biofuel and the use of the remaining beet pulp for animal feed, and how EPA...
U.S. Air Force announces $55 million for Advanced Drop-In Biofuels Production
On January 19, 2017, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory issued a $55 million funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to establish additional Integrated Biofuel Production Enterprise (IBPE) capabilities to increase the domestic production capacity of advanced biofuels. The U.S. Air Force anticipates granting one award of up to $55 million in funding with the recipients required to share at least 50 percent of the total project cost. The project will include the design, construction and/or retrofit, operation,...
