Developing a key to our efforts, U.S. to end dependence on foreign oil and to ensure a secure energy future is robust, even supporting biofuels industry. A decisive step in promoting a domestic biofuels industry is to establish nationally integrated biorefineries.

Bio-refineries oil refineries are similar in concept; However, instead of to oil and other fossil resources, bio-refineries using organic goods to a wide variety of fuels, organic products, chemicals, and heat and makes to produce.

The DOE Office of energy efficiency and renewable energy works in partnership with industry to develop, build, operate, and integrated biorefineries nationwide review at various levels (pilot, demonstration and commercial). Such a project, under the direction of ClearFuels Rentech, recently celebrated the completion of a pilot-scale bio-refinery in Commerce City (Colorado).

Built with funds from the American recovery and Reinvestment Act, the pilot-scale plant converts wood waste, agricultural residue, and bagasse - the unused portion of the sugar cane - in renewable diesel and kerosene. ClearFuels has developed a procedure to the thermochemically types convert a variety of feed stock - using a combination of heat and chemicals manufacture for fuel. The "drop" bio-fuels produced at the site is diesel a direct replacement based on crude oil and jet fuel, without any changes to existing fuel distribution networks or engines provide. This flexibility enables commercial and military aircraft for the transition to a clean, domestic fuel source, which reduces its effect not only on the environment, but also increases the national security by you them with an alternative offer.
