biodiesel from ethanol plant corn oil

Recommended Posts

1outlaw, can you explain the RIN thing that they are talking about and how a price is arrived at?

By adding a 3 million gallon biodiesel plant you’ll make your plant more valuable because each of these gallons is worth 1.5 RINS, or an additional 4.5 million in total.

Biodiesel with farming... such a natural thing.

 

Simply have a "blender pump" for diesel (b2, 5, 20, 50) located next to the ethanol plant.  All those trucks hauling corn to the plant could fill up there with fuel partially made there... work with a local shop to get the engines of many "frequent haulers" up to using higher blends...

I am not familiar enough with the biodiesel RIN process to say for sure. Corn ethanol RINS are worth maybe 1/2 to 1 cent generally and go with the product and are consumed worthless if required or can be sold if the blend was done by a non-obligated party (small non-major oil company). If anyone aquires more RINS than they need then they can sell them to another obligated party who does not want to add ethanol or biodiesel say in Alaska. But when a RIN gallon is worth 1.5 RINS and is in demand such as celluosic- it may be worth $1.13/gal to sell if you do not want to use it-- thus the buyer of that cellulosic ethanol could pay $1.13 more for a gallon and end up getting the same net cost (OR compliance with RFS2). Biodiesel RINS have similar RIN values as cellulosic right now for todays report I am looking at.

Well, you can certainly tell the government is involved!

 

Can you just imagine what it would be like to certify a process for carbon and then trade carbon credits -- the RIN thing is simple compared to what that would be !
