I can't believe how busy January has become with so many news popping up all over the place. Here's my current top news for the month (still subject to changes):
1. DuPont acquiring Danisco
2. USDA launches biobased product label
3. EPA defers GHG permitting requirements for industries that use biomass
4. Butamax files patent infringement against Gevo
5. Gevo targeting between $93-$100m IPO
...and several loans for biorefineries/renewable diesel investments coming from the US Department of Energy (DOE), US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Iowa Power Fund.
The blog already posted the DuPont acquisition and so we'll start the next one with green loans that seem to have exploded this week.
This news from the DOE caught my attention immediately given the implication of this project to future animal fats/grease supply to the US oleochemical market.
