Dynamic Fuels receives EPA Part 79 registration for renewable gasoline blendstock
17 August 2012
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted Dynamic Fuels, LLC Part 79 registration for its Renewable Gasoline Blendstock 10 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This designation enables Dynamic Fuels, a joint-venture of Tyson Foods and Syntroleum Corporation, to generate 1.5 Advanced Biofuel, or D5, RINS for each gallon of its renewable gasoline blendstock when blended into petroleum gasoline at up to a 10% concentration. Dynamic Fuels’ Renewable Gasoline Blendstock is a drop-in fuel that can be blended directly into gasoline.
At its design basis production rate of 75 million gallons per year, Dynamic Fuels’ Geismar Plant should produce approximately 7.5 million gallons of renewable gasoline blendstock, or 11.25 million Advanced Biofuel RINS, per year. Advanced Biofuel RINS have traded for as much as $0.83 per RIN during 2012 and are currently approximately $0.46.
This is the third time Dynamic Fuels has successfully applied for and received EPA Part 79 Registration for drop-in renewable fuels. Dynamic Fuels received Part 79 registration for Renewable Diesel Blendstock for up to a 20% blend with petroleum diesel in 2009 and Part 79 registration for Renewable Diesel for use at up to 100% concentration in 2011.
Syntroleum Corporation owns the Syntroleum Process for Fischer-Tropsch (FT) conversion of synthesis gas derived from biomass, coal, natural gas and other carbon-based feedstocks into liquid hydrocarbons, the Synfining Process for upgrading FT liquid hydrocarbons into middle distillate products such as synthetic diesel and jet fuels, and the Bio-Synfining technology for converting animal fat and vegetable oil feedstocks into middle distillate products such as renewable diesel and jet fuel using inedible fats and greases as feedstock.
