Biofuel News Roundup

I did not want to make my previous biofuel post too long so I separated this, which are compilation of recent biofuel news from the past two weeks:

  • Honeywell's UOP begun construction of its biomass-based biofuel demonstration unit in Kapolei, Hawaii. The biorefinery is backed by a $25m US Department of Energy award. The plant is scheduled to begin production in 2012 and will be fully operational by 2014.
  • Petrobras and Sao Martinho plan to build a 700m liters/year ethanol plant through a new joint venture company Nova Fronteira Energia for 520.7m reais ($329m). The project will also expand Sao Martinho's crushing capacity at Boa Vista from 2.3m tonnes of sugar to 8m tonnes by 2014-2015 harvest.
  • Zeachem and Chrysler plans to form a strategic partnership to accelerate the development and market adoption of cellulosic ethanol.
