Edeniq has announced that California ethanol producer, Pacific Ethanol, Stockton LLC ("Pacific Ethanol"), has entered into an agreement to install Edeniq technology at the company's Stockton, California ethanol plant. Pacific Ethanol will install Edeniq's proprietary Cellunators to boost ethanol yields, and will also deploy Edeniq's patented OilPlus corn oil extraction process to increase corn oil recovery.

Edeniq's Cellunator technology mills corn and other plant materials into 'right-sized' particles of feedstock that can be more efficiently converted into the plant sugars needed to produce biofuels.

Beginning this quarter, Edeniq will install Cellunators at the Pacific Ethanol plant in Stockton, California. In addition, Edeniq will deploy OilPlus technology at the Stockton plant. OilPlus combines thermal, mechanical, and chemical treatments to improve the recovery of corn oil, a valuable co-product that can be used for feed and other bio-industrial products.

With four ethanol plants in the Western United States including California, Oregon and Idaho, Pacific Ethanol's facilities have the combined ethanol production capacity of 200 million gallons per year.

The Stockton, California plant was built in 2008 and has the capacity to produce 60 million gallons per year. Edeniq's technology is expected to increase the facility's ethanol yields by 2-4%.

"Edeniq's technology will allow us to increase efficiency and create additional value for our customers," said Neil Koehler, CEO of Pacific Ethanol. "Our partnership with Edeniq improves our ability to compete in the marketplace."

Edeniq currently has technology agreements with six ethanol producers across the U.S., and Pacific Ethanol will be the company's second plant partner in California.

In addition, Edeniq owns and operates a demonstration-scale production facility in Visalia, California, which is currently converting a range of cellulosic feedstock into low-cost cellulosic sugars and cellulosic ethanol.

In June, Edeniq received a $3.9 million grant from the California Energy Commission as part of California's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program.

The grant was given to Edeniq to help fund further developments and innovative enhancements to Edeniq's proprietary cellulosic ethanol technology, enabling the low capital cost addition of cellulosic ethanol production to corn-based ethanol plants in California.

"With Pacific Ethanol as a customer, we are continuing our commitment to unlock the sugar conversion process and gain efficiencies each step of the way," said Brian Thome, President and CEO of Edeniq.

"This installation is just the beginning of our work with Pacific Ethanol to scale sustainable fuels."

Edeniq was recently named as one of the top private clean technology companies on Cleantech Group's 2012 Global Cleantech 100 and to Biofuel Digest's The 50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy 2012-2013.

Tree seeds offer potential for sustainable biofuels
Washington DC (SPX) Jan 10, 2013
Tree seeds, rather than biomass or fuel crop plants, could represent an abundant source of renewable energy, according to research published in the International Journal of Automotive Technology and Management. The study suggests that seeds from the Indian mahua and sal trees have almost as good a thermal efficiency as biodiesel but would produce lower emissions of carbon monoxide, waste h ... read more
