Under the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, 16 billion gallons of cellulosic biofuels are to be blended in the conventional transportation fuel pool by 2022.
Enerkem is now registered for D3 Renewable identification numbers (RINs) credits.
Previously this year, the Edmonton biofuel facility was expanded to produce 13 million gpy of cellulosic ethanol following the commissioning of its methanol-to-ethanol conversion unit. The Edmonton plant was funded by private sources, Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), Alberta Innovates and Alberta Energy.

The planned facility would store 35 million tpy of carbon emitted by a waste treatment plant, a cement works and a fertilizer plant. The carbon will be stored in a saline aquifer at a water depth of 1,400 meters.
The project will be scaled to accommodate up to 1.5 million tpy of carbon -- equivalent to the annual emissions of over 300,000 vehicles. in the event that other industrial operators choose to sign on. It will also help lower the cost of the technologies used, a major issue if the CCUS market is to grow.
Climate experts reportedly estimate that several hundred billion dollars per year will have to be invested between now and 2050 to grow the carbon capture and storage (CCS) industry enough to achieve carbon neutrality and meet the Paris Agreement target of holding the average global temperature rise below 2 degrees C by 2100.

The letter said the "biodiesel blenders' tax credit has worked successfully to build a robust biodiesel and renewable diesel industry that produced twice the volumes mandated under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Supporters of the blenders' tax credit are concerned that changing the tax credit to a producer only benefit will limit supply and lead to increase the cost of diesel fuel and heating oil."
The biodiesel blenders' tax credit expired at the end of 2016. Previously, Congress has extended the credit year-by-year as part of a "tax extenders" package, and in some years applied it retroactively, as was the case for 2016. While unlikely that this or any other tax extenders will be included in the House tax package to be released this week, the Senate may consider including the biodiesel tax credit in its tax package. However, some senators representing U.S. biodiesel producers are working to change the tax credit from a blenders' credit to a producers' credit.

They’re also asking for approval from the PSC to install wind turbines in Barton, Dade, Lawrence and Jasper counties at a cost of $1.5 billion dollars. With a $800 million dollar Production Tax Credit offered on wind generation, the cost of the project would be brought down to $700 million dollars. Empire-Liberty Utilities has been in talks with farmers in the area to lease 40,000 acres of land. Each two megawatt turbine is estimated to cost approximately $3 million dollars, and company officials say it’ll save you an undisclosed amount of money each month on your utility bill. Company officials also say they’re moving forward with this plan due to a high demand for green energy by their customers.
While Empire-Liberty Utilities has not included a request for a rate increase pertaining to this project, in the past, the rate increases are requested upon the completion of projects. Empire-Liberty Utilities currently has the highest power rates in the state of Missouri. This filing to close Asbury and build the wind farms will need approval from the Public Service Commission to move forward.

For years, Webb County faced a growing list of deferred maintenance projects that drove high operational costs. By partnering with Schneider Electric, the county will be able to modernize several of its facilities and reduce its energy consumption by 35 percent.
Schneider Electric worked closely with the county to develop a solution that will offer many long-term benefits such as improved facility efficiency, occupant comfort and financial management.
The focus of the program is rebuilding and expanding the county’s downtown central chiller plant and upgrading building automation systems, both of which are well beyond useful life. As part of the new central chiller plant, the county will be expanding the central chiller plant connections to include additional facilities, providing a simpler, more efficient solution.
. Once completed, the project will provide energy efficiency savings equivalent to removing 4,497 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, or removing 874 cars from the road or planting 4,805 acres of new trees.
