What’s New With Plasma Blue

Cindy Zimmerman

This year marks the third anniversary for Plasma Blue, which debuted at the National Biodiesel Conference in 2020. Created by the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council, Plasma Blue is based on a revolutionary new technology to help the biofuels industry better utilize renewable sources of energy, such as wind and solar, in the conversion of sustainably-grown feedstocks to oil.

“This technology is so revolutionary that it takes people a few tries to actually contemplate the fact that it works,” said CEO Tom Slunecka at the recent Clean Fuels Conference in Tampa. “We’re dramatically reducing the cost of production for biodiesel…and most importantly making the product more environmentally friendly.”

The technology drives the reaction faster than any other form of transesterification and in doing so it delivers a more complete conversion when used to combine chemicals needed to make biodiesel.
