ZeaChem logoLAKEWOOD - ZeaChem Inc., a developer of highly efficient biorefineries, announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed the successful registration of its demonstration biorefinery in Boardman, Ore. to generate cellulosic biofuel RINs (renewable identification numbers).

ZeaChem said the EPA Fuels Program Registered Company/Facility ID List has been updated with the company's biorefinery verified as an approved registered facility for the production of Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) qualifying D3 cellulosic biofuel RINs (http://www.epa.gov/otaq/fuels/reporting/programsregistration.htm).

Carbon Solutions Group, a Chicago-based project development, environmental asset management and advisory firm, provided registration services to ZeaChem.

ZeaChem is a producer of sustainable and economical advanced biofuels and bio-based chemicals from domestic, renewable agricultural and forestry resources.

Earlier this year, the company successfully produced the first volumes of cellulosic chemicals and ethanol at its demonstration refinery on the path to commercialization.

With its facility registration complete, cellulosic ethanol production will now generate RINs to achieve the national RFS2, ZeaChem said.
