Biodiesel & Renewable Diesel Summit A Review of the Technologies Available and Under Development for Sustainable Aviation Fuel Production
Room 200BC - (1:30 pm – 3:00 pm) Read Description
The presentations organized in this panel will assert that the pathway most likely to yield commercially relevant volumes of sustainable aviation fuel is the one that utilizes the foundation already established by first generation biofuels producers and researchers. Increasingly project and technology developers are embracing the advantage of building out from or bolting on to successful and operating biofuels production sites. These presenters will walk attendees through their plans for leveraging existing production and research assets to accelerate the push for commercial-scale sustainable aviation fuels.

Biodiesel & Renewable Diesel Summit Preparing for the Upgrade: Making Corn Oil Ready for Swift and Efficient Conversion to Renewable Diesel
Room 200BC - (3:30 pm – 5:00 pm) Read Description
The use of distillers corn oil as a feedstock for renewable diesel production is gaining traction because of its lower carbon intensity than soybean oil. DCO, however has higher levels of minerals and metals that can foul catalysts in the renewable diesel production process. This panel will highlight the emerging processes and technologies that allow ethanol plant teams to purify DCO streams, making them suitable for renewable diesel production thereby unlocking even greater value from this important and increasingly flexible co-product

Biodiesel & Renewable Diesel Summit How Feedstocks Decisions Impact Conversion Approaches, Carbon Intensity and Downstream Market Opportunities for Biodiesel Producersbr>
Room 200BC - (8:30 am - 10:00 am) Read Description
The financial rewards for the utilization of alternative feedstocks with low carbon intensity for biodiesel and renewable diesel production are catalyzing a renaissance in sourcing and perfecting production from these unique feedstocks. Still, these feedstocks present not only processing but also record keeping and CI verification and validation challenges. This panel features speakers that will look at each, ensuring producers considering expanding their inbound feedstock portfolio do so in an informed, “eyes wide open” posture.

Biodiesel & Renewable Diesel Summit Early Thoughts on Keeping Pace with Feedstock Demand as Renewable Diesel and SAF Production Grows
Room 200BC - (10:30 am - Noon) Read Description
The early projections for sustainable aviation fuel demand are eye popping. The 100 billion gallon aviation fuel market is forecast to more than double by 2050 by some forecasters. Additionally, aviation markets are unlikely to see demand erosion due to electrification. Professionals with deep experience in biodiesel production know that feedstocks are already tight and these additional demand centers will require feedstock innovation if the ambitious targets for future production are to be met. These presentations will examine likely pressures on existing and emerging feedstocks and how alcohol-to-jet pathways may ease some of the pressure on triglyceride inventories.
