    Biodiesel leaders head to DC for tax credit, RFS push

    Biodiesel leaders head to DC for tax credit, RFS push

    Meghan Sapp | June 6, 2012

    In Washington DC, more than 120 biodiesel leaders will meet with White House officials and members of Congress to call for the extension of the expired biodiesel tax incentive and to urge the Obama Administration to quickly finalize the EPA’s proposal to grow biodiesel volumes under the Renewable Fuel Standard next year.

    Industry leaders will specifically be asking the Obama Administration to increase the biodiesel volume requirement under the RFS to 1.28 billion gallons in 2013, up from 1 billion gallons this year. In late 2011, the Obama Administration delayed the decision despite strong bipartisan support and support from the EPA and USDA.

    • 14 POET Plants Producing Voila

      Posted by Joanna Schroeder – June 6th, 2012

      POET is off and running with the installation and production of Voilà, its branded corn oil that is used to produce biodiesel. Fourteen plants have installed the technology increasing annual production capacity to nearly 235 million pounds per year. This is enough corn oil to produce nearly 31 million gallons of biodiesel. Voilà technology was first installed in January 2011 at the POET Biorefining-Hudson facility.

      “We’ve had a great response from Voilà customers, and I’m excited to be able to expand production to meet more of the demand,” POET CEO Jeff Lautt said.

      POET has been expanding the use of each kernel of corn for many years and today the company produces animal feed including Dakota Gold distillers dried grains. In addition, five plants capture carbon dioxide and are sold to companies such as beverage producers.

      Lautt added, “At POET, we’re focused on getting the most value from corn as we possibly can. Ethanol is obviously a big part of that, but the many other products we produce are also very important to our business. We’re also working hard to develop even more biorefined products.”


      Growth Energy Launches Flex Fuel Finder at 2012 FEW

      Posted by Jamie Johansen – June 5th, 2012

      Right after Growth Energy launched a new website featuring a Flex Fuel Finder application, I got to chat with Tom Buis, Growth Energy CEO, and Jeff Broin, Growth Energy Board Member and CEO of POET. They each expressed the positive impact RFS has had on the ethanol industry and the importance of keeping it implemented. Along that line they discussed what tools Growth Energy has put into place to educate the general consumer about E15 and Flex Fuel pumps.

      Growth Energy launched a new user-friendly interface for EthanolRetailer ##, a website that seeks to outline the benefits of ethanol and the growing availability of Flex Fuel pumps. The website launch is part of Growth Energy’s new national campaign to increase awareness of E15.

      The website is a comprehensive and easy to use resource for current and prospective ethanol retailers across the company, as well as consumers. It also features a Flex Fuel Finder application, which simplifies the process of locating ethanol blend pumps. The application is accessible from both the website and as a smartphone app, making it easier for Americans to locate cheaper, cleaner fuel while on the go.
