The Environmental Protection Agency released its much-delayed biofuel mandate on November 30, 2015.
The commercialization of cellulosic ethanol began in October of 2013 with the launch of the 13 million gallons per year (MGY) plant in Crescentino, Italy. Since then, four additional cellulosic ethanol plants have popped up—two in the United States and two in Brazil. On October 30, DuPont formally opened the sixth commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plant in Nevada, Iowa.
Last month, fuel ethanol and animal feed producer Pannonia Ethanol hosted the 2015 Agro Inno Show near its headquarters in Tola County, Hungary.
The price of cellulosic waiver credit is determined using a formula specified in the Clean Air Act (CCA).
