Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation, Vancouver, British Columbia, recently completed the initial production run of BioOil in its new plant in Guelph, Ontario. It was the first of a number of test runs designed to take the plant to full production.

Intermediate grade BioOil, which has a higher calorific value than regular BioOil, was produced during the run. Dynamotive plans to market it under the name BioOil Plus as an alternative to heating oil, fuel oil, natural gas and propane in industry. Specification on BioOil Plus and industrial application information for the fuel are available at the company’s website .

 

“Cellulose-based fuels present the next frontier in sustainability,” said Dynamotive president and CEO Andrew Kingston. “Dynamotive believes that BioOil presents a third alternative liquid fuel to coexist with ethanol and biodiesel. By being able to exploit any cellulose raw materials, e.g. forest industry residues, bark, biomass from fields, I believe we can become a great contributor to the energy mix and accelerate the adoption of cellulose based fuels.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
