Demonstrate Integrated Renewable Energy Technologies for Biorefineries
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This project will integrate several emerging technologies to produce reliable on-demand primary renewable power for a biodiesel production facility. These technologies include: (1) combined solar power and head, (2) modular gasification to convert oil seed extraction solids (inedible castor and algae) into heat and power, (3) anaerobic digestion (AD) to convert liquid by-products of biodiesel production (raw glycerin and wash water) to produce heat and power. Together these technologies will form an integrated system for providing 24/7 on-demand primary power and heat for a biodiesel production facility and operated by Biodiesel Industries of Ventura (BIV) on Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) in Port Hueneme, CA.
