usei082013[Santa Clarita] – U.S. Energy Initiatives Corp. announced Tuesday that it  has begun producing biodiesel in through its joint venture partner relationship.  This partnership is designed to help meet California’s Mandated Requirement for biodiesel under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). In the next few months we will ramp up towards the name plate capacity and generate significant capital. This venture is part of an ongoing and carefully coordinated plan that both firms have planned throughout 2014.

According to Anthony Miller, CEO, “We are just excited to be producing B100 biodiesel which is a high grade single source ASTM quality biodiesel and I invite everyone to view our slide show above. The batch shown in the slideshow was fuel produced with virgin feed stock. Our goal is to utilize a wide variety of feedstocks to make different Biofuels. Promethean Biofuels is an amazing firm with an extremely competent staff and we are exceedingly happy to be working with them.

This week we begin a plan of acquiring feedstock for biodiesel and our initial purchase of 6,000 gallons should ramp up to 18,000 gallons per week in the next few weeks. Some of this fuel will be converted to B5 which is 5% biodiesel blended with regular diesel and some up to 20% biodiesel which is identified as B20… some B100 which  is 100%; and some will be sold for feedstock. Diesel fuel blended with biodiesel sells in the open market for approximately $3.95 to $5.60 depending on the concentration of biodiesel and the quality of the biodiesel.

There is a significant demand for this fuel and our goal is to capitalize on this bourgeoning market. At this level of production noted hereto we believe that U.S. Energy’s revenue should exceed $100,000 in the next 45 days. Our management has other plans and partnerships that it is seeking to help us to reach our potential as a biofuel producer and marketer.”
