BIOX commissions 90M gallon biodiesel production facility in Houston
. . . The facility started operating at full capacity in December 2016.
The Houston facility operates two equal-sized production trains that combine to provide its nameplate capacity. It uses crude degummed grade vegetable oils as its biodiesel feedstock. WEBB acquired the facility in June 2016 from Kinder Morgan.
The plant is located within the Kinder Morgan Liquids terminal, a major diesel distribution hub in the southern US market. This location provides WEBB’s biodiesel facility with immediate access to a deep-water port, rail, truck and pipeline providing distribution to all major US markets. . . .

Ace Ethanol to install D3MAX cellulosic ethanol pilot plant; “bolt-on” technology
. . . The pilot facility will be installed at ACE Ethanol, LLC, in Stanley, Wisconsin, in late February. Installation is expected to be complete by mid-March with startup and testing at the facility taking place over the ensuing two months. . . .
Operation of the skid-mounted unit, constructed by Ohio-based AdvanceBio Systems, will help narrow the operating parameter such as pretreatment time, temperature, pH, etc. Upon successful completion of pilot testing and data collection, D3MAX intends to complete the full detailed commercial design and license the technology across the United States and Canada.
