ABOUT BLUE BIOFUELS’ CTS TECHNOLOGY
Blue Biofuels Cellulose-to-Sugar (CTS) technology is an environmentally friendly, sustainable, and renewable green energy system. The CTS process has a near-zero carbon footprint that can convert virtually any plant material – like grasses or agricultural waste -- into sugars and lignin. Sugars are subsequently processed into biofuels and lignin may be further processed into specialty chemicals or ion exchange resins. The CTS process is a patented and proprietary technology wholly owned by Blue Biofuels.
Blue Biofuels’ management believes that biofuel originating from the Company’s CTS process will be eligible to receive the US EPA’s generous D3 cellulosic Renewable Fuel Credits. The D3 credit is currently around $2.43/gallon of ethanol, which could provide income in addition to that from ethanol sales. This incentive is offered to all domestic cellulosic fuel producers whose fuel is used in the transportation industry. The Environmental Protection Agency’s revised mandate for cellulosic ethanol is 620 million gallons for 2021 and 770 million gallons for 2022.
