California Invests $5M in Renewable Diesel Demonstration Facility
by SacPort Biofuels (Biodiesel Magazine) Sierra Energy Corp. and SacPort BioFuels have jointly announced that the California Energy Commission has invested $5 million to help construct a commercial waste-to-biofuels demonstration facility at the Port of West Sacramento. This joint effort will use the FastOx gasification process to convert locally generated, nonrecyclable waste into renewable fuels.
…The grant award will be used to manufacture and install a compact, modular waste conversion system called the FastOx Pathfinder FT. Expected to generate approximately one barrel of renewable diesel for every ton of material processed, this joint commercial demonstration of waste gasification will serve as a model for future commercial facilities throughout the nation.
