In California, Trestle Energy LLC, a low carbon fuel company working with ethanol producers across the Midwest, and Larksen LLC, a biomass company providing sustainably sourced agricultural residues to Midwestern power plants, announced their collaboration to commercialize a new Fuel Pathway Management Platform. The platform is designed to enable ethanol producers to substantially reduce their fuel carbon intensity and to facilitate cost-effective use of biomass fuel pellets at existing power plants.
Trestle and Larksen’s integrated approach furthers ethanol producers’ ability to scale up production of low carbon biofuels and allows existing power plants to generate electricity with the cost and reliability of coal and with carbon emissions similar to wind. This will dramatically expand supplies of dispatchable, renewable energy and substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions from domestic energy supplies. Delivering these benefits at existing energy facilities while building feedstock supplies for emerging cellulosic industries will help smooth the energy sector’s transition to a low carbon economy.
