Princeton: Use Coal, LNG, Non-Food Crop Biofuel Blends as Corn Ethanol Replacement Princeton says energy-dense slew of renewable and fossil resources could solve the nation's fuel shortages Princeton University is injecting itself into the corn ethanol debate, suggesting that the U.S. is moving in a very mistaken direction. In a new study published as a whitepaper in the AIChE Journal, the team suggests that 130 synthetic fuel plants built across the country could replace "dirty" corn ethanol, cut fuel shortages, and cut carbon emissions by a whopping 50 percent.

CARD is tracking biodiesel returns over operating costs based on a typical continuous flow plant that uses soybean oil as feedstock for biodiesel production. In the returns calculations, we assume that 7.6 pounds of soybean oil are needed to produce a gallon of biodiesel and 1.04 pounds of glycerin as the main co-product. Other operating costs include methanol as their main component. Given soybean oil and biodiesel prices for Iowa reported weekly by the Agricultural Marketing Service, and methanol prices reported monthly by Methanex, we have computed the biodiesel operating returns from April 13, 2007, to the present. The graph below divides the price of biodiesel into three components: the cost of soybean oil in biodiesel, other operating costs (net of glycerin, and other co-products), and the biodiesel operating returns. A positive operating return does not necessarily imply profits as other costs, such as plant financing, and returns to capital, must be taken into account.

Lower prices pull down natural gas reserves in 2012 › Low natural gas prices drove down U.S. proved reserves in 2012, despite notable gains in the Marcellus and Eagle Ford shale gas plays. The decline stopped a 14-year trend of consecutive increases in natural gas reserves, according to newly published estimates in EIA's U.S. Crude Oil and Natural Gas Proved Reserves 2012.

Analysis and Contents This study compiles and analyzes thoroughly researched market data to provide you with a long-term view on the growing role of biofuels in worldwide gasoline and diesel markets. A comprehensive analysis of the global ethanol & biodiesel market with focus on key developments in Asia Pacific, EU-28, and the Americas, broken down at country level. Covering predominantly ethanol and biodiesel, but also covering ETBE (ethyl tertiary butyl ether), cellulosic ethanol and renewable diesel (also known as non-ester biodiesel) where applicable, the study captures the current and near-term biofuels supply and demand picture in 23 countries in five key regions.

When Jeremy Wagner and Scott Roberts made the movie Gas Hole a couple of years ago, they had no idea the impact it would have. During the recent 2014 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo the co-directors/producers presented to attendees, showed an extended excerpt from the movie and did a little Q & A. Chuck caught up with the team and they shared how they decided a film about the oil industry was their goal and what research it took to accomplish such an endeavor. Scott said the idea come to them “when the gas prices hit an all-time high. At the time I think it was only $3.25, it was unheard of at the time. We saw an article in a newspaper written by a gentlemen who remembered seeing a vehicle back in the 50′s that he was told got a 100 mph. 2010 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo Blog 2010 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo Blog

Thousands of jobs supported by the U.S. biodiesel industry are at risk as Congress appears to have reached a legislative impasse without extending a critical tax incentive that is slated to expire on Dec. 31. "We're disappointed," said Anne Steckel, vice president of federal affairs for the National Biodiesel Board. "Jobs and the economy are supposed to be the top priority in Washington, yet Congress has left thousands of workers in limbo heading into the holidays by failing to extend this tax incentive. It's a missed opportunity, and we are urging Congress to pass an extension immediately next year to limit the economic damage. Biodiesel Magazine |

2011 is not only shattering the biodiesel industry's previous record year of 690 million gallons, but it's also proving that the mandate is truly a floor and not a ceiling. The U.S. EPA reported last Thursday that nearly 108 million gallons of biomass-based diesel was sold during the month of November, continuing a record year of production. Biodiesel production specifically reached an all-time high of 908 million gallons through the end of November, according to annual figures compiled by the EPA. If December figures are similar to November’s, then we’re looking at more than a billion gallons of production in 2011. Biodiesel Magazine |
Biodiesel Magazine | The U.S. Energy Information Administration released its latest Monthly Energy Review in late December. According to data featured in the review, biodiesel consumption continued to grow throughout the first nine months of 2011. The report contains data on biodiesel production, consumption, trade and stocks through September 2011. The EIA’s monthly biodiesel overview shows that production for the month of September was down slightly when compared with production levels the month prior. The administration estimates that 83 million gallons of biodiesel were produced in September.
