Florida, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] New Generation Biofuels Holdings Inc. announced that construction of the company’s first commercial-scale production facility in Baltimore, Maryland has reached completion. Operations at the plant are expected to start within the next few weeks.
The company’s patent-pending process produces a renewable biofuel that can be used as a replacement for diesel, #2 heating oil, kerosene and other fuel oils. The Baltimore facility has a nominal production capacity of 5 million gallons per year, which can be expanded to as much as 50 million gallons per year to support growth in demand for biofuel.
New Generation Biofuels currently has sales agreements with Dynegy to supply up to 1.7 million gallons of biofuel per year and with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Taunton State Hospital to supply up to 220,000 gallons of biofuel over a twelve-month period.
“We are pleased that we can now begin producing our second-generation biofuel at our Baltimore plant, whose modular design can accommodate capacity increases as we experience heightened demand for our versatile, cost-effective and technically superior product,” said David Gillespie, president and CEO of New Generation Biofuels.
