  • Wind Generation Benefits Farmers, Rural Communities and the Environment

    U.S. energy production is undergoing rapid transformation, with substantial impacts to the agriculture and rural economies. Many farmers already produce renewable energy by growing corn to make ethanol and soybeans for biodiesel. Now, more farmers and ranchers are harvesting the wind blowing over their land to make electricity. Large wind turbines increasingly dot the countryside, and, like ...

  • Biodiesel and Conical Chemical Mix Tanks

    Enduramaxx produces a range of chemical storage tanks ideal for a number of storage and processing uses and that includes for the formulation and safe storage of biodiesel. There may well be a number of processes to reach a useable grade of biodiesel, but all methods require the settlement and drainage of glycerol, the unusable by-product of refining the oil. That’s where cone bottom tanks, ...

  • Biofuel labeling often inaccurate, new study claims

    Biofuel blends may not always be what the label claims. A study at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution found that many smaller distributors could be 'splash blending.'  While sampling blended biodiesel fuels purchased from small-scale retailers, researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution found that many of the blends do not contain the advertised amount of biofuel. Marine ...

  • Ensuring Accurate, On-Site Biofuels Blend Measurements in Under One Minute

    Globally, governments are putting more emphasis on sustainable energy sources and are creating energy policies that promote the production and use of biofuels.  With the Renewable Fuels Standard-2 (RFS-2), the US set biofuels blending volumes to 12.95 billion gallons for 2010 increasing to 36 billion gallons by 2022.  With similar mandates or guidelines coming from other countries, the ...
