    Methes Energies signs contract for biodiesel sale of 1.2M gallons

    Methes Energies signs contract for biodiesel sale of 1.2M gallons

    By Methes Energies International Ltd. | February 15, 2013

    Methes Energies International Ltd., a renewable energy company that offers an array of products and services to biodiesel fuel producers, announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Methes Energies Canada Inc., has signed a contract with a U.S. client for the delivery of 50 railcars of ASTM quality biodiesel.

    The delivery of approximately 1.2 million gallons of biodiesel will take place over the next several weeks. Under the terms of the contract, the buyer has agreed to prepay for the biodiesel before the railcars leave Methes' Sombra facility.

    Methes' biodiesel qualifies for the generation of renewable identification numbers (RINs) under the renewable fuel standard (RFS2). Methes Energies Canada is approved by the U.S. EPA as a foreign renewable fuel producer, making the biodiesel produced at both its Sombra facility and Mississauga facility in Ontario, Canada, eligible for export to the U.S., which provides its U.S. importer the ability to generate RINs.

    Nicholas Ng, president of Methes Energies International, said, “This is the largest contract that the company has ever signed for a short-term delivery agreement. I believe that this is the beginning of a long-term relationship that will provide for more railcars to be shipped to the same client in the future.”

    Methes Energies operates a fleet of 28 railcars that are used to transport feedstock and biodiesel to and from its Sombra facility. The facility employees 23 people involved in the production of biodiesel, logistics and quality assurance.

    • Eslinger Biodiesel awarded $6M from CEC to build plant in Fresno

      By Ron Kotrba | February 15, 2013

      Eslinger Biodiesel Inc. is scheduled to receive $6 million from the California Energy Commission’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program to build a commercial biodiesel production facility in Fresno.

      According to the CEC, the first phase of the $32 million refinery is expected to be operating within a year of funding, producing 5 MMgy of biodiesel made from waste vegetable oils and animal fats. Eventual production is expected to be 45 MMgy.

      The output, according to the CEC, will be shipped by pipeline to commercial blending facilities and is slated to be presold to companies obligated to purchase carbon credit offsets.

      In addition to high-quality biodiesel, the plant will produce pharmaceutical- and technical-grade glycerin. Pipeline transport of fuel and waterless processing will result in near-zero production emissions at the facility, the commission stated.
