Siouxland Ethanol, a 90 million gpy corn ethanol plant located in Jackson, Nebraska was certified on May 6 with a carbon intensity rating of 26.67 and Elite Octane, a 150 million gpy corn ethanol plant located in Atlantic, Iowa was certified on May 7 with a carbon intensity rating of 30.32. Using Intellulose 2.0, the two plants achieved average corn kernel fiber ethanol production of 3% of total production, nearly triple the average performance traditionally associated with the benefits of Intellulose 1.0 that regulatory agencies had approved.
Edeniq's Intellulose 2.0 technology typically achieves between 2 and 4.5 pct cellulosic ethanol production from the corn kernel fiber at existing corn ethanol plants without any capex requirements. The technology measures the amount of ethanol produced from multiple different molecules present in corn kernels and quantifies the individual contribution of each component. The technology builds on Intellulose 1.0, which measures the cellulosic ethanol produced from a single corn kernel component.
Seven Edeniq Intellulose 1.0 customers were previously approved by the U.S. EPA for D3 RIN generation and/or by CARB for low-CI corn kernel fiber ethanol production.

According to Sarah Caswell, Edeniq VP of Government and Regulatory Affairs, "it is critical that the EPA issue its final 2018 RFS rule with a cellulosic RVO at the level originally proposed to OMB in May, so that the RFS law will continue to work as Congress intended. By setting the 2018 cellulosic RVO at the level which reflects actual expected production for next year, EPA will be sending the all-important signal to the market that will give cellulosic producers and investors the confidence they count on to maximize growth and production. This progress will help meet the RFS cellulosic statutory volume requirements set by Congress a decade ago."
Edeniq's processes for producing and measuring low-cost cellulosic ethanol requires zero capital investment and can be easily integrated into existing biorefineries. Edeniq currently sells or licenses its technologies to ethanol plants in the United States. (Source: Edeniq, PR, Bus. Wire, 10 Nov., 2017) Contact:

Little Sioux received a D3 cellulosic ethanol registration from the U.S. EPA after deploying Edeniq's technology at its plant. Thome noted the significance of the consistency between CARB's approval and the EPA's approval and his support for CARB's assignment of a 31.23 carbon intensity, validating the potential for Edeniq's technology to help the state achieve the GHG reduction goals of the LCFS.

Over the coming year, Edeniq expects to more than double average customer cellulosic ethanol production through plant optimization and technology enhancements that are being introduced to customers as early as the Q3 of 2017. While customers are currently averaging just over 1 pct cellulosic ethanol and a 2 pct lift in total ethanol production, the best-performing plants have achieved rates of more than 2 pct cellulosic ethanol and a 3 pct lift in total ethanol production.
The company's customer pipeline has reached 27 plants, four of which are registered with the US EPA for cellulosic ethanol D3 RIN generation. The remainder have submitted applications for D3 RIN production to the EPA, or are in the trial validation process, which is the first step in the registration process.
Edeniq's customer plants that have registered with the EPA for cellulosic co-production represent approximately 400 million gallons of total ethanol production and have already generated well over $1 million in D3 RIN credits.
The company currently sells or licenses its technologies to ethanol plants in the United States. (Source: Edeniq, PR, 19 June, 2017) Contact:

Edeniq claims it terminated its merger agreement with Aemetis in August 2016 and is defending itself against a merit-less lawsuit Aemetis filed shortly thereafter. The company claims that two two of Aemetis' four original claims dismissed.
Edeniq claims that Aemetis was unable to finance the merger and fraudulently induced Edeniq to enter into the agreement by misrepresenting the circumstances under which it could do so.
Edeniq also seeks to enjoin Aemetis from misappropriating and using its trademark.
