BP sells their lignocellulosic business, other assests and makes major job cuts

By |December 17th, 2014|Producer News|0 Comments|

As energy prices fall, BP has determined to divest the cellulosic biofuels business amidst an overall corporate retrenchment that will result in more than “hundreds of jobs” lost across the whole of BP’s global operation. BP will divest in their cellulosic ethanol program and will discontinue its work with DSM on the sugar to diesel program.

The cuts followed on from a similar series of job cuts at companies such as Shell and Chevron, and have taken on a particular urgency at BP after shares rose last week amidst rumors of a Shell takeover.

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is making a big investment in fighting climate change, by bankrolling a lawsuit that aims to limit coal mining on federal lands. The lawsuit, filed by Friends of the Earth and the Western Organization of Resource Councils against the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is being completely financed by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
In an opinion piece entitled “This land is our land” published by the Huffington Post the 24th, Allen said he believes the BLM is not responding sufficiently to the threat of climate change.

Finnish study identifies locally sourced green diesel as a route to aviation biofuel use if price can be met

By |December 17th, 2014|Policy|0 Comments|

A study commissioned by the Finnish Ministry of Transport and national aviation and biofuel companies has indicated the country is well positioned to start production of aviation biofuels but there are challenges over the higher costs of the fuels and whether airlines would be prepared to pay the differential. The study has examined different business models that could cover the additional costs but the authors say public aid would be required initially to kick-start the market.

Sustainable jet fuels are produced from sustainable feedstocks like waste streams and non-food energy crops.

These fuels offer the single largest opportunity to reduce emissions, while ensuring long term fuel security for the aviation sector.

Sustainable jet fuel blends can be referred to as ‘drop-in’ fuels, because they have the ability to be used without any changes made to the infrastructure, such as distribution and engine fuel systems.
What are Sustainable Jet Fuels?
The aviation industry is the world’s fasted growing transport sector and responsible for approximately 2,5 % of the global manmade CO2 emissions. Even with efficiency measures taken, this figure is expected to rise to 4 – 4.5 per cent by 2050, without any mitigation.

One of the biggest challenges in reducing this impact is to look for solutions that preserve the sectors social benefits, while maintaining its growth.

99% of an airline’s emissions comes from the combustion of jet fuel. Energy sources like solar, electric and hydrogen do not offer an alternative as aviation will be relying on high density liquid energy carriers for the coming decades. Therefore, sustainable jet fuels are viewed as the best opportunity to reduce carbon emissions.

For more information on Sustainable jet fuel, you can read SkyNRG’s White Paper on Sustainable Jet Fuel.
Rationale for Sustainable Jet fuel
In every decision that we make, we follow the vision on sustainable fuels, set by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in the Energy Vision 2050.:

Sustainable biofuels:
• Exhibit minimal impact on biodiversity
• Meet a sustainability standard with respect to land, water, and energy use
• Do not displace or compete with food crops
• Provide a positive socioeconomic impact.

To ensure the sustainability of our fuels, we have established various measures and important partnerships:

SkyNRG has installed an independent Sustainability Board, consisting of the Dutch wing of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF-NL), Solidaridad and the Copernicus Institute of the University of Utrecht that advises us on all feedstock and technology decisions.

SkyNRG is a member of the Roundtable of Sustainable Biomaterials.

We are in continuous dialogue with local and global NGOs to make sure we do not miss important issues in respect to the feedstock we w(want to) use and fuel we make
