    Discovery Channel documentary ‘Hot Grease’ spotlights biodiesel

    Tags:

    In its broadcast release, Discovery previewed the story of Hot Grease as: “Set in Houston, Texas, in the shadow of the nation's oil industry, Hot Grease tells the surprising story of how the biodiesel industry is turning an ostensibly worthless raw material—spent kitchen grease—into a renewable energy source capable of fueling cars, buses and fleets of trucks throughout the country. But, powerful forces are working to stop that from happening. Featuring innovators, entrepreneurs, grease collectors and supporters like Sens. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Hot Grease follows the battle for biodiesel’s future and its very survival.” Footage from NBB member meetings and events appears in the film, as well as interviews with several familiar faces in biodiesel, including Robinson; former Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-North Dakota, and Gene Gebolys, founder and CEO of World Energy. …

    We will never stop fighting to protect the RFS and Iowa • Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst

    Tags:

    Recently, this paper’s editorial board wrote a misguided editorial, and we felt it was important to set the record straight as well as stand up for the majority of Iowans who voted in the last election whose judgment was mocked in the piece. Whether it’s working for the extension of tax credits to support production, fighting trade barriers to U.S. biofuels from other countries, or pushing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to fulfill its statutory obligations on biofuels, we fight for ethanol, biodiesel, and Iowa every day. …

    World Energy Statement Regarding Keystone Biofuels, Inc

    Tags:

    World Energy learned yesterday that Keystone Biofuels Inc. (KBI) and two of its former executives were indicted for charges relating to the production of off-spec fuel from 2009 to 2012. World Energy has never been and is not now affiliated with KBI and is in no way connected to the alleged activities or the charges associated with them. In late 2014, World Energy acquired all of the physical assets of the defunct KBI. Since acquiring the 40 million gallon plant, located just outside of Harrisburg, PA World Energy invested heavily to make it into a world class facility supplying product at World Energy’s exacting standards for quality. World Energy re-opened the updated facility in December 2016. All biodiesel supplied from this facility is tested by a third party BQ9000 certified laboratory prior to delivery and meets all fuel quality specifications. Ben Wootton, a former KBI executive, was hired by World Energy in 2014. Ben’s work for World Energy has never and does not now involve any activity relating to fuel certifications. Ben has made assurances in the strongest possible terms that his actions while at KBI were entirely appropriate and in full compliance with all applicable laws. His work for us has been exemplary and we stand behind him. World Energy has been a leader in biofuel supply since the inception of the biodiesel industry fully two decades ago. Our commitment to fuel quality and RIN integrity has been and continues to be unwavering. We fully support the efforts of law enforcement to root out impropriety wherever and whenever it surfaces. World Energy is one of America’s largest suppliers of biodiesel offering over 200 Million gallons of annual biodiesel production from four plants in Rome, GA, Houston, TX, Natchez, MS, and Harrisburg, PA. We offer certified BQ-9000 as well as Q-RIN verified products. …

    RFS Court Battle

    RFS Court Battle Groups Line Up Arrows at EPA Over RFS ImplementationOMAHA (DTN) -- The future of how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency implements the Renewable Fuel Standard is at the epicenter of a federal court case set for oral arguments April 24 in Washington, D.C. This week a number of groups filed briefs with the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit challenging EPA's management of the RFS on a number of fronts. Though Congress may at some point consider changing the RFS, the lawsuit originally filed by Americans for Clean Energy attempts to force the agency to apply the law as the groups believe was intended. The group argues in a brief this week the EPA has no statutory basis to control or limit the growth of biofuels. Joining the group is the American Coalition for Ethanol, Biotechnology Innovation Organization, Growth Energy, National Corn Growers Association, National Sorghum Producers, Renewable Fuels Association and the National Farmers Union. …
