With the Malta system, two tanks are filled with salt and another two are filled with antifreeze, or a similar hydrocarbon liquid, and then the system takes in electricity generated by renewable sources. This is converted into both hot and cold air which heats up the salt and cools down the antifreeze. Then, the process is reversed with hot and cold air pushed towards each other resulting in gusts of wind that yhat drives a turbine to generate electricity.

Michigan State University was selected to manage the fourth project, which will work in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and MBI International to optimize a two-stage process for deconstruction of biomass into two clean intermediate streams: sugars for the production of hydrocarbon fuels and lignins for the production of multiple value-added chemicals and as a feedstock for renewable bichemicals.
All four projects are supporting the development of biomass-to-hydrocarbon biofuels conversion pathways that can produce variable amounts of fuels and/or products based on external factors, such as market demand. Producing high-value bioproducts alongside cost-competitive biofuels has the potential to support a positive return on investment for a biorefinery through converting biomass to where it is most impactful. Producing value-added coproducts is an approach to achieving DOE's strategic goal of producing hydrocarbon fuels at $3 per gasoline gallon equivalent.

The alt fuels and biofuels industry claimed the EPA erred in its interpretation of its own authority to waive biofuel requirements and that this misuse of authority played into arguments made by refiners and other members of the oil industry. The court agreed and ruled that the EPA can not waive the RFS requirements because of a shortage of biofuel refueling stations or pumps at gasoline stations, or similar reasons. The EPA can, however, waive the annual RFS blending requirements for ethanol and other biofuels only because of lack of supply.
With the court ruling, the EPA must now reset the 2016 annual Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requirements.
