Shell receives cellulosic ethanol from Iogen

By | November 03, 2008
Iogen Energy Corp. delivered more than 100,000 liters (26,000 gallons) of cellulosic ethanol to Royal Dutch Shell PLC, its commercial business partner, in late September. The fuel was the first part of Shell's initial order of cellulosic ethanol from Iogen, which totaled 180,000 liters (47,550 gallons). Iogen said Shell purchased the fuel "for upcoming fuel applications." Shell first gained an equity stake in Iogen in 2002, and in July 2008, Shell increased its shareholding in Iogen from slightly more than 26 percent to 50 percent.
