USDA and US Navy Explain the Ins and Outs of the Farm-to-Fleet Program at Industry Day

At the US Department of Agriculture headquarters building in Washington, DC, on January 30, representatives of the USDA and Navy provided an overview of the newly announced Farm-to-Fleet program which will provide a format for making biofuel blends part of regular, operational fuel purchase and use by the military.

The gathering was an effort to explain how requirements of existing military specifications, EPA and USDA regulatory processes for reviewing new fuel and feedstock pathways, ASTM standards and other complexities must be considered by renewable fuel producers.

Farm-to-Fleet builds on the USDA / U.S. Navy/ US Department of Energy partnership inaugurated in 2010.  As part of Farm-to-Fleet, USDA will use the procedures of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) to temporarily aid producers through loans, purchases, payments, and other operations, to make available materials and facilities required in the production and marketing of agricultural commodities related to production and sale of fuels that meet the Navy's requirements under the Defense Procurement Act. 

The CCC Charter Act authorizes the sale of agricultural commodities to other government agencies. CCC also assists in the development of new domestic and foreign markets and marketing facilities for agricultural commodities.

Not all agricultural or forestry fuel feedstocks will be eligible for this program.  The USDA is working on a list.  Some in attendance at the industry day were concerned that algae was not included on the preliminary draft list of eligible feedstocks, even though USDA had previously invested funds in development of algae for renewable fuel purposes.  READ MORE

Green Racing

Tudor Green Racing Challenge Continues Sports Car Tradition 

When the organizers of the American Le Mans Series announced the merger with NASCAR’s GRAND-AM series, we noted that the future of green racing was uncertain.  GRAND-AM vehicles never took even a sip of ethanol, while the Corvettes had been drinking E85 for years, demanding the greenest possible cellulosic ethanol in the most recent years, sharing their source with the prototypes encouraging their use of E10.  And, with ALMS rules that encouraged innovation with commercial applications, the Dyson Racing Team worked with BP and Dupont, serving as the testing grounds for their Butamax isobutanol racing fuel.

Moments before the start of the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona race in late January, representatives of IMSA (International Motor Sports Association), the US Department of Energy, the US Environmental Protection Agency and SAE International signed papers to renew their relationships to continue the IMSA Green racing platform, established 5 years ago.

With cellulosic ethanol for the E85 and E10 blends provided by INEOS Bio from its Florida facility and with renewable diesel provided from Louisiana's Dynamic Fuels' reserves, green racing was underway.

In keeping with the emphasis of resource sustainability, the new trophy is fashioned from bamboo and recycled glass.

IMSA president and COO, Scott Atherton, stressed the consumer importance of high performance sports cars running for 24 hours on renewable fuels. “If racing Corvettes and Ferraris can run on E85, then it is safe for consumers to use in their cars.”

All the sports cars running in the Grand Touring Le Mans (GTLM) class, and this includes Corvettes, Chrysler Vipers, Porsches, Ferraris, BMWs, and Aston Martins, will be fueled with cellulosic E85. 

As the complete specifications for the Green Challenge have not been finalized for all the racing classes of the Tudor series, the Le Mans Grand Touring (GTLM) class will compete with the Green Racing rules used last year in the ALMS series.

The first race winner of the new trophy?  The Porsche 911, #911. READ MORE and MORE and MORE

On the Road: Conferences and Events

DC Auto Show: Short on Biofuels; Long on Inspiration

This year's Washington, DC Auto Show focused on promoting electric vehicles and showcasing innovations in hydrogen fuel cell development.  Except for the B20 logo on the Ford F-250 Super Duty truck and an occasional acknowledgement that hydrogen might come not only from fossil fuel natural gas, but from renewable sources; biofuels were invisible.

That said, at the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) conference held in conjunction with the auto show at the DC Convention Center, an entire day was dedicated to discussing high octane/high ethanol blend fuels and the Environmental Protection Agency's Tier 3 proposal.

National Historic Vehicle
The most exciting event at the Auto Show, however, highlighted a remarkable 50-year-old innovation, the aerodynamic breakthroughs developed by Peter Brock in the design of the 1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, CSX2287.

Recognizing the historical significance of its construction, aerodynamic design and association with important persons and events, it became the first vehicle recorded under the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Heritage Documentation, and made part of the Historic Vehicle Association's National Historic Vehicle Register.  This is the first car to join historic buildings, airplanes, spacecraft and vessels recognized by other national programs.

Why so special?  In 90 days 50 years ago a totally new concept of race car was built by a group of engineers and a designer who had been shunned by their peers because their ideas had never been seen before; and so, of course, wouldn't work.

So many researchers, growers and biofuel producers in the advanced biofuels world know just what Peter Brock is talking about when he tells the story. (Pictured above with the cobra and with Advanced Biofuels USA's automotive expert, Bob Kozak (right))

Just as he and the lowest engineers in the pecking order at the Shelby shop in California persevered, so will those working on new concepts in biofuels. Their never-been-done-before developments will have long-lasting results, just as the aerodynamics on CSX2287 live today not only in race cars, but in the aerodynamics of production cars driven by consumers around the world.  WATCH VIDEO by drivingivankatz WATCH VIDEO by ThisCarMatters

BIO's Pacific Rim Summit Convinces Dan Quadros of Good News for the World


Danilo Gusamo de Quadros, a research scholar in bioenergy at the University of Florida and a professor of agronomy at Bahia State University in Brazil, continues his reports from US conferences from BIO's Pacific Rim Biofuels and Biotechnology Summit in San Diego.

He could see an integrated industry taking the real first solid steps into the future, bringing with them the total advantages of biofuel production and utilization such as: less emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), more jobs, local economy development, less international conflicts, and the guarantee of having energy strategically necessary to this country.

He notes that regulations are a concern because political contradictions and disputes have overshadowed the focus on American sustainable development.   Despite a few prognostications indicating marketing limitation, personally, Gusmao does not believe they are true when considering world-wide market tendencies.

He is optimistic about the future: "Yes, the time is coming. We have the perspective to believe that the next three years will bring the beginning of the golden age of the biofuels industry. Plenty of projects will be finished, many plants with a variety of conversion technologies utilizing a bunch of options of feedstocks will be open, and the technology will be more and more profitable."  READ MORE, including interviews with Steve Hartig of POET/Project Liberty, Joost DuBois of DSM, and Wes Bolsen of Cool Planet.  READ MORE

Advanced Biofuels USA at CAFFI General Meeting

Every two years, members of the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative gather for their General Meeting. This year invitations were open for the presentation and discussion sessions held January 28-29 in Washington, DC.

As usual, in addition to the business and policy issues hashed out in workshops, business and policy strategies get worked on in the exhibit areas and over meals.

Guest speakers from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Dennis McGinn, recently appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy, Installations & Environment), to panels of experts on a wide variety of US and international subjects aimed to give nourish those efforts with direction, inspiration and information.

Advanced Biofuels USA executive director, Joanne Ivancic (center) and volunteer and fuels and engines expert, Bill Brandon (right), along with volunteer Michelle Pelescak (taking the photo), staffed the Advanced Biofuels USA table. Thanks to CAAFI for donating the exhibit space.
