Industry Briefs

The two main competitors to natural gas vehicles (NGV) in the transportation fuel sector — biodiesel and propane — received a boost from the California Energy Commission (CEC) earlier this month, with nearly $2 million in grants from the state alternative fuel production and vehicles fund, which has also given several million dollars to NGV programs this year. A Northern California-based firm, Yokayo Biofuels Inc., will get $1.86 million from the CEC to expand and upgrade its facilities. Production capacity is supposed to grow from 1,400 to 2,000 gallons/d, the CEC said. Yokayo uses an enzymatic process that is supposed to be environmentally cleaner and more efficient than current methods for producing biodiesel. The CEC also doled out $114,000 to Big Valley Ford Inc., a Ford dealer in Stockton, CA, for the state’s buy-down program allowing 19 propane gas-powered vehicles to be purchased with the grant helping to pay the difference between alternative fuel vehicles and conventional ones.
