U.S. Energy Initiatives Corp (USEI) has signed a letter of intent to form a joint venture that will provide support to build several small scale biodiesel plants in California featuring Methes Energies Canada’s Denami 600 technology. Methes Energies Canada is a biodiesel equipment provider and biodiesel production. Collaboratively, a biodiesel plant will be built in Southern California with a nameplate production capacity of 1.3 million gallons.
Anthony Miller, U.S. Energy Initiatives’ CEO, said, “We are excited to be working with companies with such stellar reputations.” He noted that in 2013, the company will focus on biodiesel and then move into oil and gas technologies. To implement the company’s strategy, USEI has entered into two joint partnerships.
According to Methes, the Denami 600 has one of the smallest footprints in the industry and can quickly and easily be set up anywhere to produce 1.3 million gallons of ASTM quality biodiesel per year.
