The Eslinger Bio-refinery construction project has been accelerating, and I wanted to give you an update. Here’s a quick overview of our progress in the past 6 months and what’s in store for the remainder of the year.
A Biodiesel Decanter and Reboiler was installed adjacent to the 80-foot tall biodiesel distillation column that will refine-out any remaining micro-particulates. Our Biodiesel B100 (D) is a clean burning, distilled diesel fuel, produced from biomass such as animal fats and used cooking oil (UCO).
Our feedstock will be delivered to us by our co-developer, Ameriguard. It can be comprised of waste frying oils from the food service industry, expired cooking oils and byproducts from livestock processing such as tallow, lard and yellow grease. Phase 1 of our 10 MMGY plant is now 85% complete with final assembly and testing to be completed in approximately 6 months.
