What if someone said that Oscar the Grouch, Sesame Street's lovable curmudgeon, has something to teach us about sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)? While Oscar may be more concerned with rubbish than jet fuel, his recent role as United Airlines' “Chief Trash Officer” highlights an essential truth - local waste can be a global treasure. Climate change is a pressing global... [Read More]

Oil and gas companies are increasingly exploring clean fuel avenues and HVO and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) appear to be the main trend. However, the balance between decarbonisation and biofuel production can only be achieved by using sustainable feedstock. This is why the use of raw material waste and residue for biofuel production is an excellent example of... [Read More]

Biofuels are playing a significant role in the shift towards a more sustainable energy future. Derived from renewable sources like plants and waste materials, they offer a potential alternative to fossil fuels. However, challenges like competition for land use and ensuring truly sustainable production methods, need to be addressed by the market to maximise the benefits... [Read More]

If you ask most ethanol producers what their biggest costs are, number one would be the cost of their feedstock, and secondly it would be the cost of energy to run their plant. These energy costs are no small thing. For example, a single 300 hp hammermill operating at 7,500 hours per year might easily rack up a power bill of over $150,000 (€140,000). This is why the...

The aviation industry has been working on bio-aviation fuels since the late 2000s. The first flight using bio-aviation fuel took off in 2008 - it was flown by Virgin Atlantic from London to Amsterdam. Since then, many more airlines have carried out flights using bio-aviation fuels. In 2009, the EU Emission Trading System (EU ETS) which sets a cap on how much CO2 can... [Read More]

Much of the industry conversation on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is focused on production. Making more molecules available is important, but we also need to unlock the ability to deliver them to the aircraft. Perhaps the supply chain logistics are not as attention grabbing as production itself, but the industry has to focus on all aspects of the supply chain if... [Read More]

It takes a lot of inputs to convert a raw material into a usable biofuel. It requires specialised expertise, precision equipment, the correct materials and well-executed processes. However, often, from a cost-perspective, the most significant expense in the process of converting raw materials to biofuel is energy. That is why, at CPM, we have focused on developing...

Traditionally vegetable oils of different quality and refined stages were used for first generation biodiesel and HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) production. The business and its growth was supported by governmental measurements and subsidies. These measurements were stopped in most cases as new incentives were created, increasingly for waste-based feedstock only... [Read More]
