Glycerin company receives award

By Kris Bevill | June 17, 2008
In Wisconsin, Virent Energy Systems Inc. received the 2008 Red Herring North America award, which is given annually to six cleantech/energy companies selected by Red Herring as top technology start-up companies. In addition to its partnership with Shell to advance biogasoline production, Virent also aims to produce propylene glycol from glycerin, a biodiesel byproduct, via its patented BioForming process. The company is currently designing a glycerin-to-propylene-glycol pilot plant, which will be associated with a biodiesel production facility in Arkansas. In addition, Virent opened a pilot plant in Madison, Wis., in July 2007 to collect data on the production of hydrogen gas from glycerin.
