May 2019: Auction of Biofuel Technology Equipment


Don’t miss our upcoming auction featuring biofuel technology equipment, former assets of Kior / Inaeris Technologies. The auction will take place May 9, 2019.

Inaeris Technologies has created a proprietary technology platform that transforms non-food, cellulosic biomass into drop-in transportation fuel blendstocks. Their technology is flexible and can be commercialized either as a stand-alone facility or as an addition to an existing facility, such as one that already processes biomass (a pulp/paper mill) or produces fuels (a petroleum refinery).
