Fuel for Shell

Iogen.jpgIogen Energy Corp. ships 100,000 litres of cellulosic ethanol to Royal Dutch Shell, an initial delivery on the oil company’s order of approximately 180,000 litres of the biofuel. “The sale of this fuel reinforces the new commercial alliance between Shell and Iogen announced this summer,” says Iogen EVP Jeff Passmore. A partner of Iogen, Shell upped its ownership in the Ottawa-based company to 50% in July. Iogen’s cellulosic ethanol, which it has been producing at its local demo plant since 2004, is made from agriculture by-products such as wheat straw, and corn cobs and stalks.
