LAKE MARY, Fla., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Renewable fuels provider New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: NGBF), today announced that it is supplying Delta Chemical Corporation of Baltimore, Maryland, with its renewable biofuel in an evaluation program at Delta Chemical's Baltimore facility.
"Delta Chemical Corporation has taken a proactive approach to renewable and sustainable energy and we are delighted to be working with them on this evaluation program," said New Generation Biofuels CEO & President, David Gillespie. "Our biofuel has demonstrated significant overall greenhouse gas emission reductions as well as local air pollution reductions including nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) compared to distillate fuel oil. In addition, our fuel can be used as a 100 percent fuel switch with little or no modification to a customer's equipment."
In this program, New Generation Biofuels will supply the Delta Chemical Corporation with biofuel to evaluate in its Cleaver-Brooks boiler application.
We believe this test can further validate New Generation Biofuels as a preferred alternative to the installation of expensive emissions reduction equipment. New Generation Biofuels renewable biofuel offers NOx reduction of up to 60% as compared to distillate fuel oils and virtually no sulphur oxides.
"Working with New Generation Biofuels is important to Delta Chemical as we strive to evaluate alternative energy sources in the face of future regulatory uncertainty," said John Besson, President of Delta Chemical Corporation
