New biofuels

By Chemical Engineering |

U.S. Sustainable Energy Corp. (Natchez, Miss.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6892-543) has developed a new biofuel, SoyMazia 128, that is claimed to be the first 100% renewable and environmentally friendly replacement for diesel fuel with none of the negative traits associated with traditional biodiesel. The fuel has a heating value similar to that of petroleum-based diesel (128,000 Btu/gal), is noncorrosive, and is resistant to all weather conditions down to –90°F, says the company. Soymazia 128 is made by a patent-pending process that creates three times more fuel per vegetable-feedstock unit that any other biofuel process. In addition to liquid fuel, the the process also produces biogas and a carbon ash that contains nitrogen, potash and orthophosphate, which can be used as fertilizer. Meanwhile, Dynamotive Energy Systems Corp. (Vancouver, B.C., Canada; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6892-544) has introduced Intermediate BioOil — a higher-energy version of the company’s BioOil — aimed as an alternative fuel for the intermediate and heavy-fuel-oil markets. The fuel was developed at Dynamotive’s West Lorne facility, the first commercial plant to make Biomass-based fuels using the company’s fast-pyrolysis…
