In Spain, researchers at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), in collaboration with the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), have discovered dinoflagellate microalgae could be a good feedstock for biofuel production. The four-year study shows that biodiesel production from the marine microalgae from the Mediterranean could be cost competitive even in uncontrolled environments.

A new market report published by Transparency Market Research titled “Synthetic and Bio-Based Lubricants – Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis and Forecast, 2012 – 2018,” states that bio-based lubricant demand was 505.6 kilo tons in 2011 and is expected to reach 785.0 kilo tons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2013 to 2018. The report further noted that the biodegradable nature of bio-lubricant make them eco-friendly which is a key attribute in the industry facing a growing shift towards sustainability. In addition, there has been significant regulatory support for the development of bio-based lubricants from various agencies, particularly the EPA in the U.S. and REACH in the European Union.

The US Energy Information Administration said that ethanol production averaged 792,000 barrels per day (b/d) — or 33.26 million gallons daily. That is up 8,000 b/d from the week before. The four week average for ethanol production stood at 802,000 b/d for an annualized rate of 12.29 billion gallons. On the co-products side, ethanol producers were using 12.009 million bushels of corn to produce ethanol and 88,390 metric tons of livestock feed, 78,800 metric tons of which were distillers grains. Additionally, ethanol producers were providing 4.12 million pounds of corn oil daily.
