KiOR receives fuel registration from EPA for renewable diesel

PASADENA, US: KiOR Inc, a next-generation renewable fuels company, has been granted Part 79 registration for its Renewable Diesel Blendstock 5 by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The registration, required by manufacturers of motor vehicle fuels by the EPA, must be completed prior to the sale of the product.

“Part 79 registration for our cellulosic diesel marks another important milestone for KiOR and the renewable fuels industry. The receipt of the Part 79 registrations for our cellulosic gasoline and diesel from EPA coincides perfectly with the start-up of our first production facility in Columbus, Mississippi next month,” said Fred Cannon, President and Chief Executive Officer, KiOR.

“With registration for both our cellulosic gasoline and diesel completed, KiOR now has a clear path to market to provide renewable cellulosic fuels for American cars and trucks during the fourth quarter of this year. We are excited that KiOR will be able to play a key role in helping to fulfill the goals of the Renewable Fuels Standard by providing a truly renewable fuel option that uses only sustainable non-food feedstock, reduces greenhouse gases, creates American jobs, and reduces our dependence on imported oil,” added Cannon.
