Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst fired back at her deep-pocketed critics in eastern Iowa, warning a gathering of farmers to ignore "annoying ads" that attack her on the renewable fuels standard. "I do support RFS [Renewable Fuels Standard], I support biodiesel," Ernst told a gathering of Iowa Farm Bureau members.
INMETRO is the leading regulatory body governing approvals and specifications for these applications in the country. "With the addition of the INMETRO approval for these liquid level transmitters, we are further expanding our global marketplace to include the growing Brazilian market," explained as we leverage our international experience in the oil and gas, chemical, and biofuel industries."
Chempolis Ltd, a Finland-based biorefining technology corporation , signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Numaligarh Refinery Limited under which the two will jointly study building a biorefinery in North Eastern India for producing biofuel ethanol from bamboo with co-production of furfural and acetic acid. Bamboo is one of the major non-food biomass resources available abundantly in North East India and it is among the fastest growing plants.
David Fullington paid what some would call a ridiculous price of $13,600 an acre for a 200 acre farm in Illinois within the last year and says he and his partners would probably bid again for prime land that is in tight supply, despite tumbling grain prices. "No regrets at all," Fullington said of the purchase of his neighbour's land, now farmed by a son of one of his partners.
The president and founder of Spero Energy, Inc., a Purdue-based startup company, is commercializing technology to strip wood products of flavor and fragrance which in turn would create a chemical-free wood product that could be used in the production of biofuels. Mahdi Abu-Omar, founder and president of Spero Energy Inc., conducts research on the company's single-step catalytic process to create high-value chemicals.
Determined food businesses working to lower fat content could benefit from a new strain of rapeseed that produces oil with lower than usual levels of saturated fat. Plant geneticists from the UK's Home Grown Cereals Authority discovered the new plant strain as part of the organisation's A 1.1M project 3356 to reduce the carbon footprint of the lubricants industry.
The good news is that the UC has rejected the call be ecomentalist activists to divest from fossil fuel companies, which was the right decision for all the reasons I suggested the other day. The bad news is that: The University of California will invest $1 billion over five years in companies and researchers coming up with solutions to climate change, part of an overall UC push in sustainability.
The American Petroleum Institute on Thursday accused the White House of attempting to use 2014 biofuel targets to influence a tight U.S. Senate race, saying that the Obama administration was putting politics ahead of consumer needs. Management of the biofuel program has taken center stage in an election battle between Democrat Bruce Braley and Republican Joni Ernst.
Sept. 11, 2014: Prof. Aharon Gedanken from the Department of Chemistry at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel, recently visited National Cheng Kung University , southern Taiwan, to continue his research in converting waste cooking oils into biodiesel with the research team in NCKU.
Green grass grows on the Pentacrest in front of the Old Capitol at the University of Iowa in Iowa City on Wednesday, July 18, 2012. The east side of the building is one of the few areas on campus that is regularly watered during 2012's dry weather conditions.
EMMETSBURG, Iowa-Despite its grand scale, the event that marked the opening of the Project Liberty ethanol plant in northern Iowa last week at times felt a bit like a homey church function. At a cavernous warehouse in this small Iowa town, nearly 3,000 people gathered at long tables swathed in red, white, and blue cloth to watch the ceremony.
Natural gas and biofuels will make up the biggest share of the increase in what are known as "other liquid resources" in the world liquid fuel supply. The U.S. Energy Information Administration's International Energy Outlook for 2014 says those fuels that include natural gas plant liquids , biofuels, coal-to-liquids , gas-to-liquids , kerogen , and refinery gain, made up just 14 percent of the world's liquid fuels in 2010.
Biofuels have long been suggested as part of the solution to curbing greenhouse gas emissions and our reliance on oil but a new study is seeking to ease the bottleneck in them being adopted on a global scale by clarifying controversies surrounding their overall environmental sustainabilit y. First generation bioethanol is made from food crops but its benefits are limited as the fuel cannot be produced sustainably on a large scale without threatening food supplies.
Forest companies in Northern Europe have announced plans to investment three billion dollars in 2014 in attempt to move beyond mostly producing newsprint and commodity packaging grades. The idea is to diversify their product lines to include new bio-products from wood fiber and to generate bioenergy to reduce the region's dependence on fossil fuels, reports the Wood Resource Quarterly.
