CARB Certifies Edeniq Customers for Corn Fiber Ethanol (Ind Report)
Edeniq,Siouxland Ethanol
Date: 2019-05-15
Visalia, California-headquartered cellulosic ethanol process specialist Edeniq, Inc. reports the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved Siouxland Ethanol and Elite Octane as its first two Intellulose 2.0 customers for cellulosic ethanol production from corn kernel fiber.

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.

EPA OKs MAAPW Cellulosic Ethanol Production Using Edeniq Technology (Ind. Report)
Edeniq
Date: 2017-12-08
Edeniq, Inc. reports the U.S. EPA has approved Mid America Agri Products Wheatland LLC's (MAAPW) registration to produce cellulosic ethanol at its 48 million gpy ethanol plant in Madrid, Nebraska using Edeniq's Pathway technology. For an ethanol plant to generate cellulosic renewable identification numbers (RINs) under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), it must first receive EPA registration approval for its cellulosic production.

Edeniq's enzyme technology enables co-production of starch ethanol and cellulosic ethanol at existing corn ethanol production facilities. (Source: Edeniq, PR, 6 Dec., 2017) Contact: Mid America Agri Product, (308) 326-4570; Edeniq, Sasha Forsen, (402) 935-3087, sforsen@edeniq.com, www.edeniq.com

Edeniq Joins Calls for Strong 2018 Cellulosic Targets (Ind. Report)
Edeniq
Date: 2017-11-13
Vasalia, California-headquartered cellulosic and biorefining specialist Edeniq, Inc. reports it has joined with other cellulosic technology companies in meetings with congressional leaders in Washington to stress the importance of the 2018 cellulosic annual renewable volume obligation (RVO) being set at 384 million gallons, as originally proposed by the EPA and sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in May. The 2018 cellulosic RVO will be included in EPA's final 2018 federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS rule which is slatedfor release later this month.

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: Edeniq, Inc. Sarah Caswell, VP, Gov.

Edeniq Supports LCFS Pathway for Corn Kernel Fiber Cellulosic Ethanol (Ind. Report)
Edeniq,Little Sioux Corn Processors
Date: 2017-09-13
Following on our Jan. 30th coverage, Visalia, California-based Edeniq, Inc. reports it has submitted written comments to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) supporting final approval of Little Sioux Corn Processors' application under the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) for a pathway for cellulosic ethanol produced from corn kernel fiber at its Marcus, Iowa plant.

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.

Edeniq Secures $5Mn in Growth Equity (Ind. Report)
Edeniq
Date: 2017-06-19
Visalia, California-headquartered cellulosic ethanol specialist Edeniq, reports it has secured commitments for $5 million in additional equity to support existing customer workload, grow its order pipeline, and roll out technology enhancements.Over the past 12 months, the raised more than $12 million, according to a press release.

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, Inc.

Little Sioux Using Edeniq Technology for Cellulosic Ethanol Production (Ind. Report)
Edeniq,Archer Daniels Midland
Date: 2017-01-30
Visalia, California-based cellulosic and biorefining technology specialist Edeniq, Inc., and Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) are reporting that the registration of Little Sioux Corn Processors' 150 million gpy Marcus, Iowa, ethanol plant for cellulosic ethanol production has been approved by the US EPA.

Under the terms of its license agreements, ADM and Little Sioux will use uses Edeniq's Pathway Technology to measure the amount of cellulosic ethanol produced, and provide the required information to register for D3 cellulosic RINs with the EPA.

Little Sioux is the third plant to receive a cellulosic ethanol registration from the EPA after deploying Edeniq's Pathway Technology. The plant uses ADM's Clintozyme™ enzyme to convert lower value corn fiber into higher value fuel ethanol through an enzymatic process. Registered plants can access D3 RINS, which are worth over $2.50 per gallon in 2017.
