BAY MINETTE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alléo Energy today announced a significant milestone in the production of renewable fuels. Alléo’s first commercial facility has produced renewable diesel made entirely from wood waste. This fuel has been independently tested by Intertek Testing Laboratories and is certified as D975 compliant. This diesel was produced from a waste feedstock that can be upgraded into other products such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
The diesel produced is considered carbon-negative from a full life cycle perspective. The fuel produced is high in energy density which is a key differentiator from other attempts at cellulose-to-fuels conversion technologies.
“The game-changing quality of our product is very significant,” Simeon Chow, Alléo Chief Executive Officer, reflects. “What we have accomplished at Alléo is one of the most sought-after goals in the energy sector: to produce a truly sustainable fuel from wood waste. Further, I want to emphasize that this fuel can be used in existing diesel engines, without blending, and without modification of the engine.”
“We are at an important inflection point now,” states Tim Adkins, Alléo Chief Financial Officer. “We are excited to announce that not only is this a game changer from a sustainability perspective but it is a profitable business model as well. We are able to produce a truly sustainable fuel product at or below the cost for a comparable fossil fuel.”
