Engineering Study Looks at Ethanol Plus Bolt-On Green Diesel
by Holly Jessen (Ethanol Producer Magazine) Al-Corn Clean Fuel, a 50 MMgy plant in Claremont, Minn., is working with a St. Paul company investigating secondary production of green diesel at a new or existing ethanol plant. The project is fueled with $248,000 in grant money from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, which recently passed out a total of $2.4 million in funding to nine renewable energy projects.
JetE LLC has successfully converted corn oil, a coproduct of ethanol production, into drop-in green diesel and jet fuels and has a commercially available reactor, said Gordon Ommen, CEO.
…JetE’s technology utilizes hydrotreating of lipids to produce on-spec green diesel and jet fuels that is compatible with existing diesel engines. READ MORE
