Navistar resolves lawsuit against US EPA

Navistar International Corp. reached an agreement on May 3 with the U.S. EPA in which EPA promised to hold a public workshop or hearing to address issues Navistar raised in its federal court appeal of EPA's certification policies for SCR-equipped diesel powered trucks. Navistar had asked the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., to void those polices because they had been adopted by the EPA without the public process required by law, but instead following input only from the SCR engine makers.READ MORE Biodiesel Magazine

Springboard Biodiesel CEO wins award

The CEO of Chico, Calif.-based Springboard Biodiesel, Mark Roberts, was honored recently with Innovator of the Year Award by the Chico Chamber of Commerce during a local annual awards ceremony held at the Chico Fairgrounds. Roberts was honored with the award for his work in promoting small- to mid-scale biodiesel production both locally and nationally. "The bottom line is biodiesel is good," Roberts said in his acceptance speech. "It's cheaper to make than diesel if you're making it in our machines, it's much better for the environment, and you can make it right here in the U.S. from a vast selection of vegetable oils."READ MORE

Details to come on advanced biofuel funds

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced on May 4 that the USDA is planning to accept applications for the Biorefinery Assistance Program, Repowering Assistance Program and the Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels. Details on how to apply will be released later this week in the Federal Register. The Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels works to support and ensure expanding production of advanced biofuels by providing payments to eligible advanced biofuels producers. Advanced biofuels are derived from renewable biomass, other than corn kernel starch. These include cellulose, sugar and starch, crop residue, vegetative waste material, animal waste, food and yard waste, vegetable oil, animal fat, and biogas (including landfill gas and sewage waste treatment gas).READ MORE

Namibia to produce jatropha biodiesel

LL Bio-fuels Namibia, a foreign-initiated multi-billion-dollar venture, has secured 300,000 hectares of land from chiefs in the north-eastern Caprivi Region to plant jatropha, whose seeds will be press-crushed to produce the much-sought-after biodiesel. When jatropha seeds are crushed the resulting oil can be processed into biodiesel while the residue, or press cake, can be used as biomass feedstock for electricity or as a fertilizer because jatropha contains nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium.READ MORE
