CORRECTION: On page 22 of the Fall issue, a quote from Joe Jobe incorrectly stated if half of U.S. and Canadian petroleum refining capacity of 314 billion gallons blended 2 percent vegetable oil, this would create demand for 6.28 billion gallons of lipids. The lipid demand should have been stated as 3.14 billion gallons, or 6.28 billion gallons if all—not half—of the petroleum refining capacity blended 2 percent vegetable oil.

The adaptive, innovative heart and soul of this industry is exemplified in the collection of stories we bring you in this edition of the magazine. Moreover, the diversity of those we collectively refer to as “the biodiesel industry” is seen throughout the issue, from small-scale producers such as New Leaf Biofuel to major international players like World Energy, and everything in between—including vendors and service providers that supply these producers with the essentials to navigate the market and make quality product. Since this year’s National Biodiesel Conference & Expo is back in San Diego, it felt right—and long overdue—to profile San Diego’s own New Leaf Biofuel. Led by CEO Jennifer Case, New Leaf has endured the difficulties of this market, thanks in large part to Case’s inability to give up, her fortitude in making tough judgement calls, and the company’s 2014 partnership with Baker Commodities. After extensive interviews with Case, New Leaf ’s VP of operations Lucas Altic and Doug Smith of Baker Commodities, I penned “The Perpetually Expanding Veteran Startup” on page 14. While I think the story title captures the essence of the tale, the details are not to be overlooked—financial pitfalls, troublesome technology, terrible market conditions, a deep-seated willingness to survive and the ability to make tough calls in order to do so, are laid out on pages 14-16. We also bring you our largest spotlight feature article yet since debuting the section in summer 2017, profiling the products, services and technologies of nine companies dedicated to this sector. A common theme among these companies is their cutting-edge spirit, which is reflected in each of their offerings. Check out “Biodiesel’s Cutting Edge” on page 18. Next we move to “World Energy’s Big Year” on page 30. In 2018, the company took its growth plan to a new level. It acquired Canadian biodiesel company Biox Corp. and its two plants, along with gaining sole ownership over the 90 MMgy Texas plant it had acquired jointly with Biox. Just days later, World Energy acquired renewable diesel and biojet fuel producer AltAir and related assets in Paramount, California. It then negotiated a deal to buy the former Ecogy Biofuels plant, an idled 40 MMgy biodiesel production facility in Estill, South Carolina. There’s much more to the story, however, so be sure to read about it within. In addition, with significant help from our graphic designer Raquel Boushee, we profile notable activity in the industry in a graphical format on pages 34-37 in “A Geospatial View of Biodiesel Activity.” We lay out dozens of North American and international business developments that have taken place over the past year, providing a solid snapshot of the impressive activity seen in this sector in any given year. Also be sure to check out the National Biodiesel Board’s four-page section, Inside NBB, which is led by Donnell Rehagen’s column, “NBB Fighting to Protect the Biodiesel Industry from Trade Decisions” on page 10. Last, don’t overlook our two columns, one by Marc Kellens of Desmet Ballestra on page 6 in Talking Point, and the other by Jeff Hove of NATSO’s Alternative Fuels Council in a new Downstream column on page 7. We extend a special thank you to all our advertisers and contributors for helping make this great edition—our first print issue of 2019—possible. Here’s to another prosperous year!

TALKING POINT

Biodiesel’s Past, Present and Future BY MARC KELLENS

If done sustainably, biofuels are one of many solutions to reduce petroleum dependency and carbon emissions contributing to global warming. The most known biofuels today

are ethanol from sugarcane and corn (30 billion gallons annually) and biomass-based diesel— including methyl ester biodiesel and renewable diesel—from vegetable oils and animal fats (10 billion gallons per year). The food-vs.-fuel debate forced the industry to look for alternative biomass sources— wood, straw, algae and jatropha being examples. Many challenges lie ahead to stop and reverse the harm done to Mother Nature by mankind, but society cannot simply cut its energy demand. Therefore, it must continue to use its current energy sources more efficiently while investing in renewable, carbon-neutral sources. For decades biodiesel relied mainly on vegetable oils for conversion to methyl esters. This is often called first-generation biodiesel. It started in the 1990s in Europe to support the agro-industry. Several first-generation plants were built, mainly using rapeseed oil feedstock. But as fast as it came, interest declined and further expansion stopped mid-decade. Some biodiesel plants continued to process rapeseed oil, especially in Germany and France, mainly due to political support. With the negative impact of uncontrolled carbon emissions and, consequently, global warming in the early 2000s, governments started again to pay attention to renewable fuels, which resulted in a second biofuel wave—this time more explosive and international. Hundreds of biodiesel plants were built across the world in less than five years, primarily to supply biodiesel to Europe and the U.S. Feedstocks of choice became palm and soybean oils, as they were abundantly available and cheaper than rapeseed oil. More than 40 million tons per year of additional capacity was erected in a short time, but it never reached full production because of ethical concerns in using food oils for fuel and questions over long-term sustainability. By 2010, that second first-generation biodiesel wave also faded away as governments, 6

l

under pressure from social media and consumer groups, felt they were subsidizing biofuels at the expense of the food industry. Furthermore, insufficient control and existence of loopholes in EU and U.S. subsidy policies (e.g., “splashand-dash”) brought a halt to the explosive firstgeneration biodiesel demand and growth. From 2010 onward, the food-vs.-fuel concern triggered a change from food oils to waste oils for biodiesel, especially driven by the extra incentives (double counting), which led to another, smaller wave in the traditional biodiesel industry. Used cooking oils, animal fats and vegetable oil refinery byproducts like acid oils and fatty acid distillates are in heavy demand today, but these so-called second-generation biodiesels still represent only a fraction of what’s currently produced. In Europe, only 20 percent of its 13 million ton market comes from waste oils and animal fats, with rapeseed oil representing the majority stake (50 percent). Whereas growth in first- and second-generation biodiesel production has slowed in Europe and the Americas, the opposite is true for hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), also known as renewable diesel. More hydrotreating plants are being built to convert especially waste oils and fats into renewable diesel suitable for aviation, which biodiesel is not. HVO is apt as a drop-in or biojet fuel and can be blended with off-spec petroleum diesel to improve combustion parameters. There is clear interest in HVO in the U.S. and Europe, evidenced by installation of large oil pretreatment and hydrotreating facilities. In contrast to first-generation biodiesel, where many big players are active in the vegetable oil processing industry, the HVO industry is more controlled by the petrochemical industry, with Neste, Eni and Total in Europe, and Diamond Green Diesel (Valero) in the U.S. as examples. Today, about 15 to 20 percent of the biomassbased diesel produced is HVO (5 million tons in 2017), and there are indications that by 2020’21 a 40 percent increase is expected. The anti-palm oil and soybean campaigns launched by various consumer and environmentalist groups in recent years has had its impact on the biodiesel industry, especially in Eu-

rope. In Asia and Latin America, however, large first-generation biodiesel plants up to 1,500 tons per day are still being erected to supply the local market driven by governmental mandates. As of September in Indonesia, for example, B20 (and B30 in 2020) blends are compulsory amid efforts to reduce the deficit in its economy by saving billions of dollars in petroleum diesel imports. The policy also supports the region’s growing palm oil industry, which is under international fire because of deforestation and global warming. But there is also a clear shift to waste oils and fats in these regions. Palm processing produces many side streams with no food value, such as palm fatty acid distillates, high fatty acids crude palm oil and palm sludge oil, which are being converted into biodiesel. With efforts to increase palm oil’s food quality and safety, new standards are soon expected, which will result in more nonfood palm oil. Roughly 10 to 15 percent of all crude palm oil may fall into this category. Such low-grade feedstocks are ideal for biodiesel and should be promoted accordingly. Biodiesel technologies are also evolving as standards become more stringent and feedstocks more difficult to process. Various add-on technologies are available today that improve fuel quality and make biodiesel production more cost-efficient. Hydrodynamic cavitation is a one example to lower catalyst consumption and increase conversion efficiency. Apart from improving conventional biodiesel technologies that use catalysts like sodium methylate (the most-used catalyst), new processes are being tested, making use of enzymes and in some cases no catalyst at all (e.g., supercritical). Biodiesel and ethanol will continue to dominate the biofuels market for the next 10 years. Only time will tell when second-generation biofuels will take pole position in the market. Much will depend upon how the political world deals with existing challenges as climate change is no longer a myth, but a fact.

DOWNSTREAM

Alternative Fuels Council Offers Biodiesel Strategy BY JEFF HOVE

The good news is blenders that take a The U.S. EPA’s Renewable Fuel more prescriptive and hands-on approach Standard provides incentives for can still increase margins in excess of 5 cents marketers to increase margins and per gallon. be more competitive. Since its incepThe final RFS standards for 2019 (and tion, the RFS has generally been a very successful program as blenders across the U.S. improved margins. If current legislative proposals move forward, marketers could witness another 13 years worth of similar incentives. But renewable identification number (RIN) value volatility—driven by political rumor, speculation and poor departmental management of small refinery exemptions—as well as a continually lapsing IRS blender’s tax credit make for difficult times for downstream blenders. At times, the economic risk appears to be too high, and blending must stop and wait for better days. The variables that make blending economics questionable at times, however, are the same variables that can give blenders hope that market conditions will get better. The downstream transportation fuel industry is no stranger to risk, as fuel pricing ebbs and flows daily. Biofuel producers typically don’t understand that blenders and marketers live in a world where they are selling at a loss one day and hoping for gains the next. This willingness to take on risk is what keeps the biodiesel industry moving forward during periods of policy uncertainty. Today’s blenders must intelligently follow all the market variables and assess the overall costs and benefits of blending on a regular basis. Tracking RIN sales alone is simply not enough as RIN values are built into the price per gallon, and as potential IRS tax credits are “shared.” In an ultracompetitive fuels market, these are the things that keep us awake at night. Additional costs associated with transportation, stoppage fees, and special storage and blending equipment also must be minimized.

2020 for biomass-based diesel) give some relief, if not assurance that the current EPA administration is attempting to play by the rulebook. The final rule increased advanced biofuel volumes to 4.92 billion gallons for 2019, up from 4.29 billion gallons in 2018. The final rule also increased the 2020 requirement for biodiesel to 2.43 billion gallons, up 330 million gallons from the 2.1 billion gallons required this year and in 2019 (biodiesel volumes are set a year in advance of the other biofuels). Both of these create opportunities to improve margins by blending more biodiesel. A number of factors are in play, however, that stand to have profound effects on biodiesel blending. For example, how the administration manages the “reset” and “set” rules—both of which are to occur between now and 2021. Both give EPA the opportunity to consider the impacts of new renewable diesel production currently being planned and hopefully adjust pertinent renewable fuel volume obligations (RVO) upward. In addition to activities at EPA, Congress also is considering legislation that would enhance renewable fuel blending opportunities. Two legislative bills have been published that will create additional complexities but give the biodiesel model significant support. The first establishes a multiyear phaseout of the IRS blender’s tax credit over a seven-year period. The phaseout would allow for the consistency and transparency needed for industry to invest in biodiesel production and retail markets. The phaseout also allows the RIN credit to adjust accordingly to assure incentives are maintained. The second proposal would

require biodiesel, along with advanced and cellulosic fuels, be given definitive goals out to 2032 (ethanol would be removed from the RFS and supported, rather, by new highoctane standards). If passed, this legislation would more than guide EPA during its RFS “set,” which requires the agency to establish RFS goals post-2022. If legislative measures such as these do not move forward, and if EPA fails to develop a progressive RFS, states could take matters into their own hands and seriously consider low carbon fuel standards. This would be especially likely in states heavily invested in agriculture. Managing biodiesel blending and marketing requires attention to detail and an understanding of present and future variables. Additional policies, intended to increase the volumes of low carbon fuels, will undoubtedly create additional levels of complexity. The policy solutions above, while good, won’t make doing business simpler or more streamlined. Just as they give petroleum marketers the incentives necessary to continue blending and investing in alternative fuels, they also will create more variables to track and report—all of which can lead to more tax remittance and refund snares to get caught in, as well as more RIN credit marketing scenarios to manage. NATSO and its Alternative Fuels Council are working diligently to ensure that fuel marketers have the resources needed to manage these complex requirements and market uncertainties by providing the tools necessary to meet federal and state requirements, and to increase the value of incentives for blenders.

BQ-9000-certified biodiesel marketer and distributor Targray has opened a new terminal in West Fargo, North Dakota. Targray’s Fargo Biodiesel Terminal, a 24/7 fuel distribution center, serves wholesale fuel buyers throughout the Fargo-Moorhead area. The new terminal will provide local fuel retailers, distributors and fleet managers with greater access to biodiesel. “The Fargo terminal is an important addition to our national biodiesel distribution network,” said Samy Cozma, a biofuels trader with Targray. Cozma added that the new terminal would also help address the increased demand for biodiesel in Northwest Minnesota, stemming from the state’s recently amended mandate. On May 1, 2018, Minnesota began requiring that all diesel fuel sold in the state during the “summer months”—April through September—contain at least 20 percent biodiesel. The minimum content for the remainder of the year is 5 percent. Targray is one of the largest, fastest-growing suppliers of biodiesel in the U.S.

Neste Corp. and specialty chemicals company Clariant have signed an agreement to partner in developing and making new sustainable material solutions accessible to a variety of industries. The companies will start replacing fossil-based ethylene and propylene used in Clariant’s hot-melt adhesives with monomers derived from Neste’s renewable diesel. Later, Clariant and Neste will develop other sustainable additive solutions derived from renewable raw materials for plastics and coatings applications, which will help other companies increase their biobased offerings. Gloria Glang, a vice president at Clariant, said, “For the society, our environment and future generations, it is our responsibility to improve sustainability performance and reduce our carbon footprint and dependency on crude oil. As a result of Clariant’s partnership with Neste, we can progress our goal to become a true sustainable solution provider in the additive market.”

In October, Woolley Fuel celebrated its 10th year as a distribution location providing high-quality biodiesel to consumers across New Jersey. Woolley Fuel was started in 1924 by two brothers Herbert and Norman W. Woolley Sr. Their desire was to start a coal company similar to their father’s and found potential in Maplewood, New Jersey. The brothers built an energy company that is now approaching its 95th year and is still evolving. Woolley Fuel President Norman Woolley Jr. created a whole new market when he made his company the first in the state to offer biodiesel to the public. Woolley Fuel started with just B5 blends and now due to demand is selling B30 to customers. Along with biodiesel, Woolley is also a major player in the Bioheat sector, providing heating oil to northeastern New Jersey residents. Heating oil has been a part of the Woolley family since nearly the beginning. For 90 years, Woolley has delivered top-notch oil and plans to continue this business model for many more years to come.

NATIONAL

BOARD

NBB Fighting to Protect the Biodiesel Industry from Trade Decisions It’s been a long battle this year for the biodiesel industry and the members we support. Late in 2018, the U.S. Department of Commerce granted the government of Argentina’s request and initiated “changed circumstances” reviews of U.S. antidumping and countervailing duty orders on Argentine biodiesel companies. NBB’s Fair Trade Coalition urged the commerce department to reject Argentina’s request and opposed initiation of the Donnell Rehagen, CEO, reviews, which could result in resetting National Biodiesel Board the duty rates calculated only months ago. Just last year, the U.S. International Trade Commission unanimously determined that U.S. biodiesel producers were injured by biodiesel imports from Argentina, and the commerce department confirmed that the harm directly resulted from massive subsidies provided by the government of Argentina and huge margins of dumping by its biodiesel industry. The commerce department’s subsequent orders established final countervailing duty rates ranging from 71.45 to 72.28 percent and antidumping duty rates ranging from 60.44 to 86.41 percent for Argentine biodiesel. These duties were calculated and applied by the commerce department to level the playing field for our domestic producers. The NBB Fair Trade Coalition filed its original petitions back in March 2017 seeking relief to address a flood of subsidized and dumped imports from Argentina and Indonesia that resulted in market share losses and depressed prices for domestic producers. Biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia surged by 464 percent from 2014-’16, taking over 18 percent of market share from U.S. manufacturers. The key issue for us was not only the surging levels of imported biodiesel, but that these artificially low-priced imports prevented our domestic producers from earning adequate returns on their substantial investments. The limited returns also stifled the ability of U.S. producers to make further investments to build and serve a growing market. Once the commerce department leveled the playing field, domestic biodiesel producers stepped up their efforts, put substantial underutilized production capacity back to work, and boosted homegrown biodiesel production. In these circumstances, it is a complete mystery why the commerce department would open a path to a resumption of unfairly traded imports. This action jeopardizes our industry’s progress and the American jobs our industry supports, and 10

it places added pressure on our nation’s farmers, who are already suffering from low commodity prices and uncertain trade conditions. With these things in mind, we believe the commerce department has no basis for initiating this unprecedented review and we have told them so. Changed circumstances reviews are extremely rare as the very nature of the duties applied in these circumstances are a recognition of the severe harm a domestic industry has incurred over a substantial period of time. These duties were set to remain in place for a period of five years to allow the domestic industry time to recover from the harm caused. Because these duties have been in place for just a few months, that anticipated recovery period has not been recognized. The commerce department’s changed circumstances review process typically takes up to 270 days, meaning a final determination could come as late as August. In the meantime, the duties as established remain in place. The commerce department has indicated it will publish preliminary findings from the review and solicit public comment before issuing a final determination. President Trump has consistently stated support for the U.S. biofuels industry and strong enforcement of U.S. trade laws. The administration shouldn’t act contrary to the president’s commitments. Soybean growers have seen large global markets closed to them. The U.S. EPA has cut the domestic biodiesel industry market by more than 300 million gallons by handing out RFS exemptions to every refiner that asked. And now, the commerce department is considering undoing what it just did a few months ago. The department shouldn’t put salt in the wound with actions that further threaten the viability of U.S. producers and farmers in favor of Argentina’s agricultural interests. Our team, along with the American Soybean Association and National Renderers Association, wrote a letter to President Trump urging him to ensure that the commerce department undertake a rigorous, comprehensive and transparent review before considering any adjustments to the duty rates it established this year. Together, we believe to do anything less would strike a devastating blow to U.S. biodiesel producers and soybean farmers. We will continue to work collectively to advocate for American biodiesel and soybean producers. Donnell Rehagan CEO National Biodiesel Board

NBB What’s Ahead in Washington for 2019 The National Biodiesel Board worked with its members throughout 2018 to fight for federal policies that support the industry’s growth. Renewal and long-term extension of the biodiesel and renewable diesel tax incentive as well as securing sustainable market growth under the Renewable Fuel Standard remain key policy priorities. The industry made some progress toward those goals in 2018. But there’s more work ahead in 2019. The industry’s first task for the new year will be educating new members of Congress and their staffs about the biodiesel industry, the benefits of biodiesel use, and the importance of our federal policy priorities. The industry will be without a few of its long-time champions after the 2018 elections, so NBB will look to engage new ones. The memberships of important committees will change as Democrats take over the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in January. In the final months of the 115th Congress, renewal of the biodiesel and renewable diesel tax incentive was important unfinished business for many of the industry’s defenders. Through the Bipartisan Budget Act signed into law in February 2018, Congress retroactively renewed the incentive only for 2017. In September, before Congress paused for the election, Reps. David Young, R-Iowa, and Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, initiated a letter to House leaders asking them to prioritize renewal of the tax incentive before the end of the year. The letter was signed by 46 members of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats. NBB has for many years advocated a long-term, multiyear tax incentive that provides producers certainty and encourages investment and growth. NBB’s position is aligned with all other stakeholders of the tax incentive—including blenders, truck stop and convenience store operators, and truck drivers. In late November, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, worked with Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to propose a multiyear extension of the biodiesel tax incentive as part of a package of corrections and amendments to the tax code. The proposed extension would provide certainty to the biodiesel industry for several years. Kurt Kovarik, vice president of federal affairs with the NBB, stated, “The biodiesel industry has long advocated for a long-term tax extension to provide certainty and predictably for producers and feedstock providers. Too often, the credit has been allowed to lapse and then be reinstated retroactively, which does not provide the certainty businesses need to plan, invest and create jobs. We appreciate the recognition that the biodiesel industry is integral to our domestic energy needs through this long-term extension.” The industry will have to continue to fight for certainty in the RFS. Throughout 2018, NBB and its members engaged with representatives and senators seeking to reform the program. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, led one effort to bring biofuel and oil producers to the table to negotiate changes to the program. At the end of the process, Cornyn found there

was not enough agreement between the two sides to introduce legislation. Rep. John Shimkus, R-Illinois, who served as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment, also worked throughout 2018 on legislation to reform and sunset the RFS. During Congress’ lame duck session, he offered draft legislation for discussion, proposing a change to the gasoline standard—requiring gasoline to meet a higher research octane number—as a replacement to the RFS. NBB testified at a hearing on the issue and made its position as clear as possible: The proposed legislation does not support predictable growth over time and the biodiesel industry would not benefit from the other provisions of the draft. During the upcoming year, the industry will face additional RFS issues such as small refinery exemptions and U.S. EPA’s planned rule changes. EPA announced it will initiate a rule and public comment period to reset the statutory RFS volumes for 2020-’22. The agency triggered this reset by waiving the annual statutory volumes by more than 20 percent for 2018-’19. NBB previously engaged EPA on the planned reset and advocates for higher volumes in the biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuel categories as the agency develops the reset proposal and the 2020 annual rule. The rule for 2019 and biomass-based diesel volume for 2020 sets a precedent for the reset. The final volumes were released on deadline Nov. 30, with the biomass-based diesel volume for 2020 set at 2.43 billion gallons. EPA set the 2019 advanced biofuel volume at 4.92 billion gallons. NBB had asked EPA to set the 2020 biomass-based diesel volume at 2.8 billion gallons, consistent with the agency’s estimate of the amount that will be produced and used in the coming year. While the agency finalized the rule very close to the volumes they originally proposed, it also recognized that biomass-based diesel fills most of the overall advanced biofuel category. “EPA recognizes that the biodiesel and renewable diesel industry is producing fuel well above the annual volumes,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “The industry regularly fills 90 percent of the annual advanced biofuel requirement. Nevertheless, the agency continues to use its maximum waiver authority to set advanced biofuel requirements below attainable levels.” In setting the final volumes for 2019, EPA failed to account for anticipated small refinery exemptions. NBB continues to pursue litigation that could force the agency to review its past rules and change its methodology going forward. The industry continues to highlight the impact these exemptions have on demand for biodiesel and renewable diesel. Although the industry accomplished some important goals in 2018 and has much more work ahead in 2019, the 116th Congress presents many opportunities and challenges for the biodiesel industry. www.BiodieselMagazine.com

‘Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel’ Student Members Attend National Biodiesel Conference & Expo The Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel program is intended to foster professional relationships between budding and established scientists, share accurate information, and increase collaboration with academia and the biodiesel industry. The National Biodiesel Board oversees the program, with support from the United Soybean Board and other funders. Each year NGSB offers a scholarship to college students for the opportunity to participate, alongside other industry experts, at the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo. The scholarship is for science majors interested in all aspects of the biodiesel industry. “I came to the conference with knowledge of the chemistry behind many of the processes, but little to no information about the actual industry,” said William Gray, chemical engineering major at Rowan University and NGSB co-chair. “I learned exensively about other feedstocks, quality assurance and policy. These topics dominated discussion and got me even more interested in the exciting world of biodiesel. The National Biodiesel Conference & Expo was a wonderful experience.” NBB founded NGSB in 2010, with 2011 being the first year of the conference scholarships. Since then, it is estimated that more than 100 students have attended on scholarship, with approximately another 50 attending for a reduced registration rate. “These connections could be stepping stones for their professional career, but the relationships could also benefit the biodiesel industry— you never know where some of these students may land,” said Don Scott, NBB’s director of sustainability. “Another benefit to us is that these interactions also bridge technology from the lab to potential commercial reality.”

Biodiesel Benefits Animal Agriculture, Too Biodiesel is good for livestock, too. American Soybean Association farmer-leader Rob Shaffer and the National Biodiesel Board’s senior feedstock advisor Alan Weber were featured on the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s program Cattlemen to Cattlemen recently. The two discussed biodiesel’s positive effect on livestock by increasing the value of animal fat and decreasing soymeal costs for livestock producers. As both a soybean farmer and beef producer, Shaffer provided his perspective on how a growing biodiesel market positively impacts the beef industry. “Everybody is trying to increase their profits, lower their risks, and also lower their costs, and one way to do that is through biodiesel,” Shaffer said. Biodiesel is made from a diverse mix of feedstocks including recycled cooking oil, soybean oil, and one that is commonly forgotten— animal fats. It is estimated that 13 percent of biodiesel in the U.S. is made from animal fats. “Animal fats and livestock producers are really important to the biodiesel industry,” Weber said. “Last year about 1.8 billion pounds of animal fats were used to produce biomass-based diesel in the U.S.” By creating a new market for soybean oil, biodiesel has increased availability of protein-rich meal more cost-effectively. Demand for biodiesel increases the demand for soybean oil, boosting the value of soybeans and reducing the price of soybean meal fed to poultry and livestock. As more soybean oil is processed for biodiesel production, more soybean meal is available for animal feed. “The question is, who gets the benefits?” Weber asked. “We found price impacts were spread throughout the supply chain. For example, in my home state of Missouri, a commercial cow-calf operator could see a value of $20 every time he took a steer or heifer to the sale barn.” Biodiesel decreases soy protein meal prices by $21 per ton. “The

beef industry alone probably paid $40 million less for feed last year because of biodiesel,” Weber said. When asked for final thoughts to share with his fellow producers, Shaffer stated, “Biodiesel helps their bottom line, creates U.S. jobs, helps taxes … it’s a win-win for the cattle industry and soybean producers.” To have NBB representatives on Cattlemen to Cattlemen provided an excellent opportunity to share biodiesel’s benefits to a large agriculture and livestock audience and highlight NBB’s successful efforts to strengthen relationships with key stakeholder groups in the animal agriculture industry.

Biodiesel Success Stories—Celebrating Our Biodiesel Leaders This year the National Biodiesel Board released the second edition of the Biodiesel Success Stories publication. Five years ago, NBB was determined to identify and publish stories of prominent influencers that were making a difference in an industry that required strong leadership to ensure success both individually and for the industry. “When an industry evolves, it does so because of the sum of its parts,” said Paul Nazzaro, supply chain manager for NBB and president of Nazzaro Group LLC. “In the case of biodiesel’s remarkable growth for the past 25 years, it’s due to the countless individuals, leadership organizations and companies that aligned and worked cooperatively.” The criteria for recognition were leaders who took the path less traveled, who weren’t discouraged at the first sign of disappointment, and those who believed biodiesel deserved its rightful place in the national supply chain. Each gallon of biodiesel consumed starts as a feedstock that ultimately becomes an ASTM fuel. Behind these gallons were highly passionate people prepared to sweat the details to ensure quality.

“The quote emblazoned on the cover of our newest publication states it best—‘Innovators are at their very heart visionaries who also have determination, dedication, passion, and motivation,’” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “We hope to see more individuals continue to prove their role in the biodiesel industry’s ongoing journey to pursue increased percentages in the supply chain.” Each person spotlighted in the publication has played an important role in advancing America’s advanced biofuel growth. “Without these individuals, and many others like them in our industry, the pages of biodiesel history would be left blank,” Nazzaro said. “Through their unique stories, generations of future renewable fuel pioneers can be motivated to not settle for the status quo.” The NBB is continuously thankful for the hard work and dedication of those who make the industry what it is today and will continue to look for the next success stories.

THE PERPETUALLY EXPANDING

VETERAN STARTUP Armed with a scrappy, do-it-yourself attitude, New Leaf Biofuel’s success is a testament to its—and the biodiesel industry’s—perseverance BY RON KOTRBA

Not unlike many small-scale biodiesel production facilities, San Diego-based New Leaf Biofuel has struggled to survive the turbulent biodiesel market over the past decade. One major difference, however, is that

this vertically integrated biodiesel company has Jennifer Case at the helm. Case, co-founder, coowner and CEO of the 5 MMgy New Leaf Biofuel, is a Pepperdine University School of Law graduate and former attorney who never gives up. She is not afraid to roll up her sleeves, make tough decisions and get dirty. As a Los Angeles-based litigator in the mid-2000s, Case’s former roommate told her of a business she was starting in San Diego to turn used cooking oil (UCO) into biodiesel. Case’s friend inquired whether the startup could secure Case as an attorney to help get the business off the ground. After a presentation to the law firm, the main partner pulled Case aside and told her the company didn’t need a lawyer, it needed a business plan. “They didn’t see the vision,” Case tells Biodiesel Magazine.

The deflated Case put in her notice to quit and moved to San Diego, invested in the new business and became a partner, all the while expecting to return to practicing law once the startup was established. She had already been dating Tyler Case, who lived in San Diego and would eventually become her husband. “I had no idea that what I was about to engage in would be such a huge undertaking,” Case says. After bringing in more partners, including Tyler, and raising more money, the list of creditors grew. “At that point we had five coowners,” Case says. New Leaf bought a skid-mounted system with a nameplate capacity of 500,000 gallons a year from a company based in Europe. The system was designed for rapeseed oil but when Case explained New Leaf wanted to use the system for processing UCO, the company added an acid esterification unit on the frontend. Case says to make this happen, New Leaf co-owners were raising more and more money from family members and friends cashing in their 401Ks, remortgaging their houses and maxing out credit cards. With additional help

from a state grant and city loan, the European system was secured and work began to get it operational. “The system didn’t work like they said it would,” Case says. “Everything the sulfuric acid touched deteriorated.” Then, in 2008, as if things couldn’t get any worse, the market crashed. “We spent 2009 rebuilding the system and fighting with [the provider],” Case says. “It was very stressful and difficult. It took years to get the system working right and a lot of reengineering.” After a long battle with the provider, a settlement was reached and ties were severed. It was now on New Leaf alone to make the system work. And this wasn’t easy. “The PLC code was written entirely in a foreign language, so anytime we wanted to adjust the code to add a tank or a pump, or add minutes to settling, it was all in a language none of us knew. So one of our guys had to learn this language basically just to rework the code. To this day, the code is still in this language.” During this time, a second state grant application was submitted and approved to triple production from 500,000 gallons to 1.5 MMgy.

“We were in massive trouble,” Case says. “We owed money to everyone. It was so stressful. I said, ‘This isn’t working. We don’t have any money.’ I thought I’d just go back to being a lawyer, but in the post-market crash, everyone said, ‘Unless you’re practicing bankruptcy law, no one is hiring lawyers.’” Her former roommate who conceived the idea to start the company had a baby and took a leave of absence. “That’s when I stepped in as CEO,” Case says. “We still owed a lot of people a lot of money,” Case says. “People that took out 401K loans still hadn’t been paid back. It seemed like every time we started to feel like we might be turning a corner on making money in this industry, things would change.” Amid lapsed tax credits, delayed federal Renewable Fuel Standard regulations and a court-embattled state Low Carbon Fuel Standard, the tough times only got tougher. “As the industry matured, we were just too small,” she says. In 2012, New Leaf wrote another state grant application and got it, this time to expand from 1.5 to 5 MMgy. “The cost difference between us and the next closest guy

customers could buy gallons from was big,” she says. “We needed to lower our prices. We were in a constant state of needing to expand to lower our margins. It was really stressful for everyone.” All the partners except Tyler wanted out. “The only people who were motivated to chase better margins were me and Tyler,” Case says. “After the 2012 grant, we put the company up for sale. We spent much of 2013 trying to sell it. Ultimately it didn’t happen. In 2014, we were in massive trouble again. It was bad. The tax credit had lapsed again, and this was the same year the U.S. EPA was backlogged on its RFS rules. So we had all this preexisting financial stress and these new stressors were layered on top if it.” In 2014, New Leaf and Baker Commodities began negotiations. “By June, we still didn’t know if the sale was going to go through, and if we continued to run three shifts a day we’d run out of money by August and not be able to pay our employees anymore,” Case says. “But if we cut production down to one shift a day and only made biodiesel from the UCO we

collected without buying any more, we could make our cash last ‘til January. By that time we would know if the tax credit would pass or not, and if that happened, we would get a few million dollars. So we just had to survive ‘til then.” The pending layoffs and dissolution of the former partnerships ate away at Case. “It was the worst time of my life,” she says. In September 2014, the deal with Baker closed. Baker bought out all of New Leaf ’s partners, which equaled 80 percent of business. “Tyler and I stayed on to run the business,” she says. “Our partners got what they wanted, and Tyler and I got what we wanted, which was to build this business to be the best thing it could possibly be. Funny enough, the tax credit passed and we had a cash infusion. We would have survived anyway, but partnering with Baker was the best thing for us.” Doug Smith, the vice president of R&D and quality control at Baker Commodities, has roots in biodiesel back to the early 1990s. He later joined Baker Commodities, a familyowned rendering company, and served as a board member at the National Biodiesel Board. www.BiodieselMagazine.com

selling to local jobbers, Altic says Case knew BQ-9000 was an absolute necessity. “As a small mom-and-pop biodiesel program, you do what you need to do, but not much beyond that,” he says. “New Leaf had to get into the mindset of a bigger company with a bigger mentality. Going to BQ-9000 made us really look at processes and think about procedures to focus on quality. New Leaf has always made good ASTM-quality fuel, but BQ-9000 certification helped take us to the next level to be taken seriously. It changed a lot of mindsets and opened up new business opportunities. It really changed our ability to sell fuel and, as a result, almost everything about the company.” Since achieving BQ-9000 producer and marketer status, New Leaf now primarily sells its biodiesel to large obligated parties and terminals. Case says in the midst of redoing paperwork with the city for the expansion to 12 MMgy, the California Energy Commission announced another grant opportunity. Case says she is doing her best to secure this grant to further expand from 12 to 18 MMgy, despite not having built out to 12 MMgy yet. She says this may be the last type of grant funding the CEC will do for biodiesel as the legislators and regulators duke it out to determine what the clean energy future of California will look like. “Long story short, they favor electricity,” she says. “Their main goal is to get all LCFS credits from electricity and everyone else plays second fiddle.” Ultimately, Case says never giving up and having the fortitude to make the really hard decisions, such as the layoff in 2014—coupled with the decision to partner with Baker—are what has allowed New Leaf to persevere. “If we hadn’t done one or both of those things, I don’t think we’d be here,” she says. “The layoff was not an easy decision. There were definitely disagreements with the partners. It was a tough call but I thank God I had the [courage] to do it.” She says the biodiesel industry is still a rollercoaster, but it’s a lot easier being on that ride with people who share the same vision. “This industry, and our business, is ever-changing,” she says. “It’s always one thing after another. I feel like we’re a never-ending startup.” Altic agrees. “We still call ourselves a startup more than 10 years later,” he says. “We still have that scrappy, do-it-yourself attitude. It’s part of our identity.” Author: Ron Kotrba Editor, Biodiesel Magazine 218-745-8347 rkotrba@bbiinternational.com

SPOTLIGHT Third Coast Commodities Biodiesel feedstock trading is evolving, and Third Coast Commodities is one of the firms ushering in this change. “We view taking directional positions for clients or vendors—at either parties’ expense—as the past business model, one that’s going to ultimately fail,” says Nicholas Hoyt, head of risk management for Third Coast Commodities. “The word trading implies taking positions, but that’s not what we do.” Hoyt says the focus of a feedstock service provider should include providing opportunities to mitigate risk and capture margins when they exist. “We want to dispel the whole notion of trading against price,” he says. “Much of the industry’s pricing mechanisms are backward-looking and nontransparent. ‘This index reports today that the price on used cooking oil last week was plus or minus this or that.’ The truth is that today’s price is today’s price—it’s what someone is willing to pay.” The only way to improve the pricing and contracting models, Hoyt says, is to bring transparency to the market. One important aspect of effective risk management is leveraging historical data. Aggregating, and perhaps more importantly, understanding that data to help customers is critical in today’s environment. “We take all this information to make better decisions for our clients,” Hoyt says. “Our goal is to bring market price transparency to our clients so they can maximize their business margins and best execute logistics. We use the data to understand price relationships over time.” Hoyt says when it comes down to it, there isn’t a single byproduct or coproduct for which any feedstock provider is going to slow down their core business operations. “Ultimately, they have to move these fats, oils and greases,” he says. “What we do is understand those trends and get the best price as of that day, as efficiently as possible to ensure maximizing revenue. Understanding historically where those price relationships are with supply and demand helps our vendors and customers capture the best prices, so they can focus on the daily challenges of execution.” Hoyt says Third Coast Commodities is implementing a blockchain-type approach

to the business. “What blockchain does is provide verification of what the product is, where it came from and where it ended up,” he says. “For us, it’s the process of verifying where in the value chain the product is at all times.” Third Coast Commodities is actively working to bring blockchain technology to the business through the Canadian startup Grain Discovery, which was Third Coast Commodities started Ag Energy Transport to better manage scheduled to execute its logistics and costs. first trades in coffee and PHOTO: THIRD COAST COMMODITIES soybeans in December.

SPOTLIGHT BDI Packaging the highly variable process of retrofitting disparate biodiesel facilities with unique operations into an executable program for the industry requires mastery gained over decades. This is precisely what Austria-based BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH has done with its RetroFit Program. BDI has performed dozens of retrofit projects around the world. “Each retrofit project is always unique,” says Hermann Stockinger, BDI’s vice president of global sales. Christine Riedl, BDI’s technical sales manager, says customers engage BDI for retrofits to increase profitability, capacity, energy efficiency, product quality and yield; and to modernize their process and utilize waste materials as feedstock. She says retrofits involve much more detailed discussions than greenfield builds. Safety standards, which vary by law and from one company to another, must also be considered early on. BDI’s RetroFit Program comprises eight steps, beginning with an evaluation of the existing plant, customer requirements, a rough cost estimate, preliminary concept preparation and summary of results and recommendations. Next is pre-engineering, including feasibility and mass balance studies, layout planning, integration and interface management. Third, an

offer is made with scope of work and detailed costs, followed by the authorization procedure, which includes data preparation for permitting, assistance and risk analyses such as HAZOP studies. Steps five through eight are engineering and delivery; implementation; commissioning; and aftersales service. The customized optimization of BDI’s retrofits often involves integration of a proprietary pretreatment process to remove feedstock impurities and a biodiesel distillation column to meet stringent fuel specifications. In its RetroFit Program, BDI also offers a patented esterification process for high free fatty acid (FFA) feedstock, as well as glycerin distillation to achieve technical- or USP-grade glycerin. In many instances, BDI is approached to improve a facility’s energy efficiency, which begins with installation of an economizer. The return on investment (ROI) for energy efficiencies is measured in months while, for a complete retrofit, an ROI of two to three years is commonly requested, Stockinger says. Another cornerstone of BDI’s biodiesel offerings is its multifeedstock technology, elements of which are utilized in its RetroFit Program. “We have different solutions for various processes,” Stockinger says. “Based on that, we take out separate units or technologies and select the right ones for our customer’s retrofit project. You need complex and comprehensive

knowledge of biodiesel processes, in general, and quite a lot of experience in what to do in certain situations. What we provide our retrofit customers is based on that huge set of knowledge.” In addition to knowhow, what makes a project Riedl successful is brainstorming, communication and discussion from different expert points of view. “The North American market is quite interesting for us,” Stockinger says. “Our customers there are very open to discuss their Stockinger requirements with us. We appreciate the level of experience they have.” Riedl says she enjoys working with North American customers because they are goaloriented. “They focus on solving the main problems first, and afterwards discussing the ‘color of the pump’,” she says. U.S. customers want problems solved quickly and properly, Stockinger says. “It’s a good approach,” he says. “The challenge in the U.S. is the ROI must be quicker too.”

SPOTLIGHT Leem Filtration Leem Filtration has been servicing the biodiesel industry for 10 years and has been in business since 1962. After supplying the corn sweetener, sugar, edible oils and used cooking oil industries with filters for decades, moving into the biodiesel space was a natural fit, says Bill Boyd, sales manager for Leem Filtration, who has been in the filtration business for 26 years. “We do a lot of business in biodiesel,” Boyd says, “and we do a lot of business in other industries whose products wind up in biodiesel plants.” Filtration is often a coupling of physical filters with filter aids such as diatomaceous earth (DE), or other adsorbents. “The adsorbents are put into the product and our filters physically take the adsorbents and impurities out,” Boyd says. The pressure leaf filter is a common fixture in biodiesel plants and it’s one in which Leem Filtration specializes. “We offer different styles of pressure leaf filters,” Boyd says. “The differences are based on size and orientation—vertical or horizontal—depending on throughput needs and what kind of footprint the plant can sustain.” Boyd says Leem Filtration’s vertical pressure leaf filter is the most popular application for biodiesel. “Many biodiesel producers used horizontal filters early

on, but they later found vertical filters work better and take up less space,” he says. Leem Filtration offers a range of filter sizes, from as small as 50 square feet up to 1,275 square feet for vertical filters, and from 300 square feet to 1,650 square feet for horizontal ones. Boyd says many plants run filters in tandem. “We just did a big project in Texas that used four big verticle filters,” he says. “Others I’ve worked on have run eight to 10 vertical filters stacked.” He says all of Leem Filtration’s filters feature 80-micron pore sizes, often which are then precoated with DE or another adsorbent to help filter down to 0.7 microns. One particularly unique offering Leem Filtration provides is a welded design. “The standard pressure leaf filter portion that holds the precoat is riveted in five plies,” Boyd says. “A number of years ago we came up with a welded design that eliminates rivets, which reduces the chance of leaks. It uses a wedge wire core in the center so it doesn’t plug up in the center of the leaf. It works particularly well for animal fats and other products that tend to clog up the center of the leaf. No one makes this but us.” He says Leem Filtration is also a wedge wire company, so it makes its own core for this application. “To our knowledge, we’re the only one who can make that core,” he says.

In addition to filters, Leem Filtration also provides structural steel, walk-around platforms, precoat and feed tanks. “Previously, if we put in a filter system, the customer would have to buy the feed or precoat tank somewhere else,” Boyd says. “Instead of going to different places to get them, we can now provide them as one unit. It allows us to provide more of what our customers need.”

SPOTLIGHT Jatro Renewables In January 2018, Raj Mosali, co-founder and CEO of Jatrodiesel, reorganized his company and rechristened it Jatro Renewables Inc. to better fulfill his vision and adapt to the changing biofuels business model. “My vision is to be a full-service provider, not just a process technology provider,” Mosali says. “Due to our 15-plus years of experience in the biodiesel area, apart from our core competency in biodiesel and supercritical processes, we gained valuable expertise in other areas such as operations, feedstock procurement, product sales, process scaling and more.” Mosali says he would like to leverage this expertise in other related areas, including renewable diesel, higher-efficiency extractions and more. He highlights Jatro Renewables’ robust R&D and partnerships, and says he is working on commercializing newer technologies to be unveiled soon. “The biodiesel industry is fairly mature but also changing,” he says. “The demand is slowly climbing, but also the need for better and higher-efficiency extraction procedures is going up, which will eventually lead into relooking at alternative feedstocks or alternative ways to produce biofuels. We want to be at the forefront of this.” Mosali is no stranger to being at the forefront of alternative technologies. In 2013, Pa-

triot Renewable Fuels contracted Jatrodiesel to build a first-of-its-kind supercritical biodiesel plant scaled at 5 MMgy co-located with its 125 MMgy ethanol plant in Annawan, Illinois. Since then, CHS Inc. bought the complex and commissioned the plant in late 2015. The startup was a milestone but did not come without its problems. “There were a few unanticipated and hard technical issues that we had to overcome,” Mosali says. “The relatively easier fixes were in the supercritical process itself. Working closely with CHS and Green Tech Solutions, our Japanese partner who owns the original patents on supercritical biodiesel, and tapping their expertise was helpful. CHS’s support and contribution to the effort have been priceless and went beyond a traditional vendor-customer relationship. I would term this as a success for both Jatro Renewables and CHS.” CHS is now operating the plant 24/7 in Annawan, Illinois. Jatro Renewables’ supercritical technology is a single-stage, continuous process that puts no limit on free fatty acids. It cuts the cost of traditional biodiesel refining by 25 percent, Mosali says, in part by eliminating the need for catalysts. Complete conversion takes place in minutes with minimal yield loss, and water has no adverse effect on the process. Mosali says it is operationally efficient and less error-prone. “Operations are easier,” he says, adding that

running a supercritical plant is relatively handsoff compared to even the most automated conventional plant. The market is looking for high-quality, efficiently produced biodiesel, Mosali says. “Also, the market’s looking for competitively CHS’s supercritical biodiesel in Illinois priced product,” plant PHOTO: JATRO RENEWABLES INC./CHS he says. “Due to INC. economics, producers have to constantly look for the cheapest feedstock and keep producing high-quality biodiesel efficiently. Biodiesel is now a true commodity in terms of pricing and availability, and technology has to adapt to that.” He adds that the two biggest factors allowing supercritical producers to ride the waves of market uncertainty are the ability to process any feedstock and the lowest per-gallon operational costs. “The lowest-cost operator who is highly efficient will survive,” Mosali says. “Our supercritical technology offers that to the customer.”

SPOTLIGHT PQ Corp. PQ Corp. is a globally focused specialty chemical company involved in several markets, including oil and gas, food and beverage, and, of course, biodiesel. The company traces its roots to its founding more than 200 years ago in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, area where it operated privately for two centuries. In September 2017, PQ Corp. became a publicly traded company with its initial public offering of 29 million shares at $17.50 per share. PQ Corp.’s stock is traded under the ticker symbol “PQG.” The firm is still headquartered in the greater Philadelphia area but services clients worldwide with a global team of sales, technical support personnel and research scientists. PQ Corp. also supplies its clients from regional manufacturing sites. For the biodiesel industry, PQ Corp. manufactures adsorbents in ISO-certified plants in the U.S., Brazil and the Netherlands and has additional silica manufacturing capabilities in Indonesia and the U.K. Research and development efforts as well as laboratory testing services are provided from both Europe and the U.S. The company’s family of Sorbsil synthetic silicas are extremely high-purity ad-

sorbents that target the removal of impurities such as soaps, phospholipids and trace metals. This is accomplished through the coupling of a high surface area adsorbent with controlled pore size to maximize the affinity for such polar compounds. In conventional biodiesel applications, the use of PQ Corp.’s Sorbsil synthetic silicas allows for the processing of multiple, lower-quality feedstocks while extending catalyst life and maintaining, or even improving, glycerin quality. “PQ Corp. does a detailed process review with clients to ensure an optimal technical offering tailored to meet the customer’s specific needs and expectations,” emphasizes Arnd Oppermann, PQ Corp.’s global business director for specialty adsorbents. John McNichol, PQ Corp.’s market development manager, says the company is extremely energized by the growth potential in biodiesel. “Demand is increasing globally due to both expanded mandates on the use of biodiesel, such as B20 requirements in some countries, as well as a general green movement,” McNichol says. “We have also recently expanded our research and development capability to provide customer support from the R&D center in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, so as to better meet the

needs of a changing market.” Customer service includes the ability to design and support client trials, recommending adsorbent dosages and evaluating product performance, final product quality and filtration McNichol characteristics. PQ Corp. has supported the biodiesel sector for a decade and is committed to helping the industry grow and prosper. “The industry has certainly grown over the past 10 years and the level of sophistication in processing has greatly increased,” McNichol says. “PQ Corp.’s recent expansion of services confirms our dedication to this dynamic market.” McNichol notes that in addition to biodiesel, PQ Corp. is also focusing on servicing the renewable diesel industry. Renewable diesel is a diesel fuel substitute made from the hydrotreatment of fats, oils and greases. “The technology has become commercially viable,” he says.


SPOTLIGHT RINAlliance Owned by the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa, RINAlliance is a national firm specializing in providing petroleum jobbers and marketers cost-effective solutions for tracking, reporting and managing RIN credits. The company’s proprietary software application assists blenders and RIN owners with reporting RINs to U.S. EPA, performing audits of RIN transactions, and trading RIN credits. “We also work with potential blenders to help them determine whether it makes sense to start blending,” says Reo Menning, executive vice president. “Whether it’s finding biodiesel suppliers, calculating profit margins, pointing out available tax incentives or getting companies registered with EPA, we make it easy to get started.” When companies are ready to blend biodiesel, RINAlliance guides them through negotiation processes with biodiesel suppliers, ensuring they leverage current RIN prices and available tax incentives in their purchase agreements. “We help negotiate the best deal, looking at the potential for the biodiesel tax credit to return, current RIN prices, how much transportation costs, and whether it makes more sense to buy RINless,” she says. “We walk through all that.”

RINAlliance recently upgraded its proprietary software to provide customized RIN tracking for business metrics. “Our new software builds in efficiencies for users,” Menning says. “Clients can process dozens to hundreds of blend and sell transactions at a time. They can use the fields to track RIN profitability as well as supply contracts and purchase agreements associated with specific RINs. EPA’s EMTS system doesn’t allow transactions on specific RINs—it picks them based on production date. Our system allows you to buy and sell specific RINs the way you want to.” The RIN market has been adversely affected this year by small refinery exemptions, driving prices down. “That makes profitability tougher,” Menning says. “Prices have since stabilized a bit, which makes it easier to plan for the future, but we have helped our clients through this time as they transact RINs by getting them the best price out there.” RINAlliance also moves clients’ RIN sales close to the buy time. “That assists with profitability,” she says. “We move them fast. We’re constantly selling.” Some pending changes to the RFS program, such as the push for greater transparency in RIN trading, will help, Menning says. Other changes, such as the potential for marketers to sell RINs directly to obligated parties, will

make it challenging for aggregators. “Obligated parties aren’t going to want to be RIN aggregators,” she says. “Several ideas have been put out there to consider. They will have to determine which makes sense. The RIN market is more efficient if we have Menning aggregators.” RINAlliance works with small and large companies alike. “What makes our services so valuable is that for those small companies selling lower volumes, we aggregate RINs and get them a better price,” Menning says. “And they don’t always have staff to do compliance work. For larger companies, our software provides operational efficiency that makes it easier to perform multiple blend-sale transactions at once.” She says RINAlliance’s software makes the entire process more cost-effective, profitable and accurate. “We have many checks and balances to ensure accuracy,” Menning says. “We take regulatory compliance very seriously.”

SPOTLIGHT RPS The keys to success for alternative biodiesel process technologies are widening a producer’s feedstock choices and lowering both capital and operational costs while achieving better product yields and quality compared to conventional techniques. Rahul Bobbili, president and chief technical officer for San Jose, California-based Renewable Process Solutions Inc., says Hybrid.T—a technology he developed combining supercritical and traditional biodiesel processing—can accomplish all this and more. The process builds on RPS’s experience developing a supercritical plant co-located with Calgren Renewables’ ethanol facility in Pixley, California, which is near completion. With Hybrid.T, producers can process feedstock with up to 20 percent free fatty acids (FFAs). Feedstock is sent through a fatstripping column and the FFAs are processed in a small supercritical reactor. The converted stream is then fed into a conventional transesterification reactor with the triglycerides. Bobbili says the advantages of Hybrid.T are lower processing and capital costs, lower methanol and sodium methylate usage, higher yields, and no salt deposits, corrosion or high maintenance common with sulfuric acid esterification.

“The crude glycerin is greater than 80 percent pure, and ASTM-spec biodiesel yield is greater than 99.5 percent,� Bobbili says. Acid catalysis puts limitations on FFA consumption, Bobbili says, so people are looking into Hybrid.T to process higher FFA levels at lower processing costs. “That’s key—to produce fuel at the lowest process cost compared to other producers,� he says. “This is where the interest is. When I pitch this to customers, the lower cost of supercritical esterification is always key. Reduced costs will add value to the process.� Excluding tank storage, civil work and a loadout rack, Bobbili says RPS can supply a 5 MMgy Hybrid.T plant for $6.25 million with a return on investment (ROI) of slightly less than two years. A 10 MMgy plant has an even lower capital expense of $1 per gallon and a faster ROI, he says. RPS can offer greenfield builds, retrofits or co-located Hybrid.T plants. “We work with bolt-on upgrades for biodiesel producers, and we cater to ethanol producers who want bolt-on systems to produce biodiesel,� he says. “The advantage of a Hybrid.T retrofit for a transesterification facility processing pure soybean oil is, if the customer wants to process higher FFA, we can simply bolt on a frontend fat-stripping column and supercritical system that will operate in parallel to their transesterification process.�

Bobbili

RPS also offers prospective renewable diesel producers smaller-scale hydrotreatment technology coupled with a subcritical countercurrent hydrolysis pretreatment step to convert triglycerides to FFA before hydrotreatment. The process removes glycerin at 97 percent purity before hydrotreatment. In conventional renewable diesel production, the unwanted glycerin is converted to propane. RPS’s pretreatment process reduces hydrogen consumption by a third and extends catalyst life “substantially,� Bobbili says, by significantly reducing impurities in the feedstock. Although a handful of ethanol producers have chosen to co-locate biodiesel processing on-site, Bobbili says many wrestle with the decision whether to install biodiesel or renewable diesel production. Fortunately for them, RPS’s technology suite covers both approaches.

SPOTLIGHT Imerys The multinational company Imerys specializes in the production and processing of industrial and advanced minerals. Known throughout the biodiesel industry for its CynerSorb-branded adsorbents, for the past year Imerys has been developing cold filtration solutions for the biodiesel industry using its Harborlite-branded perlite. “Not all producers perform cold filtration,” says Chris Abrams, the commercial development manager for Imerys Filtration. “Some are using additives, others rely on distillation, and some are using multiple approaches. We noticed a trend that, without our knowledge, several biodiesel producers were using Imerys’ Harborlite for cold filtration that they bought from our product distributors.” Many biodiesel producers doing cold filtration chill the biodiesel temperature to 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit and then filter it. “That’s where we are filling most of our perlite in the biodiesel industry,” Abrams says. “They put a base of perlite on the physical filter and run perlite throughout the day. It seems like the market determined on its own how good this product is for cold filtration, prior to us marketing it, so it led us to look into this further.” Perlite is a mineral formed from volcanic glass and has the remarkable property of expanding up to 16 times its size when heated. Perlite has many uses, including cryogenics and low-temperature insulation. Imerys extracts the material from its U.S. perlite mining operations in Arizona and Colorado, where it is then expanded at one of many expansion plants located throughout the states. Once expanded, perlite has tremendous surface area and porosity, making it a great filtering agent to remove solid contaminants and insoluble impurities out of biodiesel that hinder cold flowability, such as sterol glucosides. Imerys offers multiple grades of expanded perlite under the Harborlite brand.

Synergies are seen when Harborlite perlite is used in conjunction with CynerSorb adsorbents, Abrams says. CynerSorb is a surface-functionalized diatomaceous earth. Conventional diatomaceous earth is used to remove solids. When combined with Imerys’ proprietary adsorbent, the two-in-one product can remove a host of impurities that either product alone would leave behind. “What we’ve found is that the use of CynerSorb in conjunction with Harborlite perlite is shown to improve cold filtration and filter rates in biodiesel,” Abrams says. In addition, the use of perlite improves the overall production process, according to Abrams, by increasing throughput and decreasing filter downtime. “It does this by opening up the filter,” Abrams says. “Perlite has such a broad selection of permeabilities to fit the size, type and production rate of any filter process. It opens up the bed itself and increases capacity at final chill filtration. It can do that by 20 to 50 percent.” He says Harborlite also decreases filter downtime. “It does this by reducing the overall consumption of filter media,” Abrams says. “You add less and it does more. It can provide a 10 to 30 percent reduction in total solids. And it increases yield because you have less biodiesel going out with the filter cake. Ultimately, the economic value is uptime and increased production.”

Moreover, the use of Harborlite perlite improves the cold soak filtration test by 20 to 30 percent, Abrams says. “If your plant is currently doing cold filtration, independent of what you are using for primary cold flow improvement, you should look at Harborlite perlite for capacity increases, debottlenecking and reduction of overall filter media use in process,” Abrams says. “Every application in which we’ve done this exercise, the outcome has been improved.” Imerys is interested in collaborating with producers to run trials of Harborlite perlite for cold filtration at their plants.

SPOTLIGHT Smisson-Mathis Energy A number of jurisdictions are pushing to eliminate the disposal of fats, oils and greases (FOG) in landfills. “Some jurisdictions have already banned land application of this material,” says Ken Brown, CEO of Smisson-Mathis Energy LLC. “And others are looking at capping how much can end up in landfills. Part of our mission is finding better solutions for this material.” SME, a joint venture between Dublin, Georgia-based Tactical Fabrication LLC and Smisson Energy LLC of Macon, Georgia, is retrofitting an existing, idled biodiesel production facility in Laurens County, Georgia. The innovative process technology couples liquid enzymatic and resin technologies and patent-pending advanced distillation to reduce sulfur from hundreds of parts per million (ppm) in FOG-based biodiesel to near zero. The company is making headway financially and technologically toward its goal of debuting its unique business model and biodiesel process technology in a commercialscale plant. Government loan guarantees were more common in the mid- to late 2000s than today, but the failure of Solyndra in 2011 gave them a bad rap after sticking taxpayers with a bill of more than $500 million dollars. “The 9003 program is an arduous program,” Brown says. “It requires us to run a 120-day integrated demonstration unit under the scrutiny of an independent engineer before the loan guarantee is provided. It requires the approval, not only from USDA, but also from the Office of Management and Budget. The most challenging aspect of the process has been the time. It’s been a hard process—but that’s good. We’d like to know the government does the proper due diligence to understand the technology and economics behind these projects before committing its own funds.” The loan guarantee works as the final backstop if the borrower cannot repay the lending institution. “All the normal collaterals are in place,” Brown says. “Land, personal guarantees—should all that fail, the government guarantees 90 percent of the loan. There has not been a willingness on the part of commercial banks to loan to the

28

BIODIESEL MAGAZINE

l

biofuel industry in a number of years. This is a mechanism to get back to standard commercial financing. For us, it allows us to use debt and preserve as much equity as we can.” Brown says SME has raised the equity portion needed per the 9003 loan program requirements and the company is going through the final steps to close on the loan. “We already have a bank that has agreed to provide the funds, and we expect to close soon,” he says. “We have also used our own money to purchase the facility in East Dublin, Georgia. We own the land, building and a majority of the equipment needed to build this plant. We’ve already begun some construction, funding this out of our own pockets while we wait for the loan to close with the loan guarantee. In addition, we’ve already ordered a majority of the long-leadtime equipment. We plan to be operational in the second quarter of 2019.” Frankie Mathis, the chief technology officer for SME and CEO of Tactical Fabrication, says while it takes money to implement the technology, there is much more to it. “There’s a lot of meeting of the minds that had to take place, ideas exchanged, to get where we are today,” he says. “Once we figured out how to have consistent reactions with brown grease, the next thing was working with suppliers to procure good material for biodiesel production. That was a challenge. Many brown grease collectors collect more than brown grease—and by that I mean impurities.” He says only 45 percent of some loads were convertible to biodiesel. “More than half the material was not a glyceride or free fatty acid,” Mathis says, adding that he has worked with brown grease suppliers from across the Southeast to find quality product. “The only consistency is its inconsistency.” The next challenge, Mathis says, has been scaling the advanced distillation process from pilot to production scale. Given the data that has been obtained to date, SME is confident in moving forward and commercializing the technology. Mathis says the use of enzymes in the process is what makes it all possible. “This is big for Novozymes for us to take FOG and brown grease and covert this to on-spec biodiesel,” he says. “Typical brown grease feedstock is 600 ppm sulfur. After conver-

sion, the biodiesel is around 300 ppm sulfur and, after distillation, it’s effectively zero. Novozymes has been very good to work with.” Brown says SME is working directly with municipalities, utilities and counties to implement FOG harvesting and biodiesel production. “This is really the whole business model for our company,” he says. “We’re not just a biodiesel company but a waste management company with the intention of integrating ourselves within municipalities and wastewater treatment (WWT) plants to remove FOG from their waste streams. We can do that because we have a process that can take that material, convert it to biodiesel and meet all the ASTM requirements.” Mathis says, “We have a patented piece of equipment called the FOG Harvester. With it, we can reduce disposal costs by two-thirds.” He says the waste streams from WWT plants going to landfills are basically evenly distributed as water, organic solids and oil. “We’re decreasing disposal costs for them by two-thirds,” he says. “We are able to put the water back into the WWT facility, the solids or food particles remain landfilled, which are perfect for biodigesters, and we leave with the oil.” “To keep it simple, municipalities are throwing BTUs away,” Brown says. “We are harvesting those BTUs as part of our integrated solution for reducing the volume of disposed material. We believe this technology has applications worldwide.” Furthermore, Brown says this model of biodiesel production is profitable without government incentives such as the tax credit or even the Renewable Fuel Standard.

WORLD ENERGY’S

BIG YEAR Boston-based World Energy had a busy 2018 buying plants and expanding its reach BY RON KOTRBA

World Energy has been a mainstay of the American advanced biofuels industry for more than 20 years, but its most recent year was unlike any other. The veteran biodiesel company

began 2018 with four biodiesel plants located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (45 MMgy); Rome, Georgia (18 MMgy); Natchez, Mississippi (72 MMgy); and a joint-venture plant with Biox Corp. in Houston, Texas (90 MMgy). In March, the company announced that it had taken on a significant new investment partner led by Halifax, Nova Scotia-based CFFI Ventures. The deal, with an aggregate value of $345 million, also included the acquisition of Canada’s Biox Corp. and its two plants—the company’s 17.7 MMgy flagship facility in Hamilton, Ontario, and an idled 13.2 MMgy plant in Sombra, Ontario—as well as Biox’s interests in the Houston joint venture. That same month, World Energy announced it had closed on the purchase from Delek US Holdings Inc. of its interests in renewable jet and diesel producer AltAir Paramount LLC, its Paramount Petroleum LLC refinery assets, both co-located in Paramount, California, as well an adjacent tank farm and

most of Delek’s California pipeline assets. The purchase included a 66-acre complex consisting of a 45 MMgy renewable diesel and biojet fuel production facility, 1.7 million barrels of Gebolys product storage, a truck rack with 28,000 barrels per day of throughput capacity, rail storage for up to 55 railcars, and pipelines stretching more than 71 miles connecting the facility to major southern California distribution hubs, including Long Beach. World Energy also continues its ongoing partnership with United Airlines to supply renewable jet fuel to its hub at LAX for daily flights. In September, World Energy was in the news again when it partnered with United Airlines to power the longest-ever transatlantic biofuel flight from San Francisco to Zurich, Switzerland. In late October, just seven months after announcing the deal to acquire the Paramount facility, World Energy made headlines again, this time revealing that it is making a $350 million investment in the Paramount site to complete the for-

BUSINESS mer oil refinery’s full conversion to produce more than 300 MMgy of renewable diesel, jet fuel, green gasoline and propane. Still, the company’s big year was not yet finished. As the year came to a close, Biodiesel Magazine learned that World Energy closed in December on the purchase of the idled 40 MMgy former Ecogy Biofuels facility in Estill, South Carolina. By year’s end, the company had doubled the number of production facilities it now owns including plants stretching from the East to West coasts and from the U.S. Gulf Coast to the Canadian shores of Lake Ontario. Its product offerings have been expanded to encompass fully blended low carbon fuels including those containing biodiesel, renewable diesel and renewable jet fuel. It has also dramatically expanded its distribution footprint, most notably with the establishment of its substantial new Paramount distribution hub in the very important California market. Scale for a Purpose The company’s significant growth in 2018 didn’t just happen by chance. Rather, World Energy has been on a long and sustained path to build efficient scale so that it can service its customers and partners more effectively. “Our aim is not just to sell more biodiesel,” says Gene Gebolys, founder and CEO of World Energy. “Our aim is to help leaders drive change. It is no longer a viable option for large-scale companies and institutions to ignore the impact of their carbon footprint. Decision makers are increasingly aware that how they handle their carbon footprint challenges is central to determining their success and our collective well-being. We are hell-bent,” he adds, “on empowering those who choose to lead. Our supply chain is being built to be of maximum service to those who partner with us to reduce their fossil fuel use in an effective way at scale.” Bryan Sherbacow, who co-founded and led AltAir, and Scott Lewis, who was the longtime commercial chief at Biox, are now helping to lead the charge at World Energy. “California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard is changing everything about the fuel industry in California with implications that stretch far beyond the state’s borders,” Sherbacow 32

MAJOR NEWS: In October 2018, seven months after World Energy acquired the AltAir refinery in Paramount, California, shown here, the company announced a $350 million project with UOP to complete the partially converted oil refinery. The project will boost current production of renewable diesel and biojet fuel from 45 MMgy to more than 300 MMgy of biojet, renewable diesel, green gasoline and propane. The massive 66-acre complex is the touchstone of World Energy’s California and West Coast strategy. PHOTO: WORLD ENERGY LLC

says. “And it’s on track now to steadily continue to expand.” Lewis says, “Low carbon fuel markets are now emerging on both sides of the Canadian border in ways that will dramatically impact all fuel market participants. Our mission at World Energy is to help companies navigate those changes successfully.” According to Sherbacow, World Energy has also expanded down the supply chain to increase its distribution capabilities. “This network of distribution hubs and partnerships allows World Energy to supply blends of its biodiesel, renewable hydrocarbon diesel and biojet fuel throughout North America,” Sherbacow says.

What the Future Brings World Energy executives say a lot of work still lies ahead. “To be truly effective in fulfilling our mission for our partners,” Gebolys says, “we need to operate excellently at all aspects of the supply chain.” To that end, the company is investing heavily in upgrading its facilities, improving its access to feedstocks, and expanding its downstream distribution reach. If 2019 looks anything like 2018, the team at World Energy can expect to be very busy. Author: Ron Kotrba Editor, Biodiesel Magazine 218-745-8347 rkotrba@bbiinternational.com
