A senior official of Iogen Energy said the initial 200,000 liters (53,000 gallons) has been distributed by Brazilian ethanol maker, RaE[degrees]zen, to its network of gas stations.

As part of the agreement, Codexis will work with Shell and Iogen Energy Corporation to enhance the efficiency of biocatalysts used in the Iogen cellulosic ethanol production process.
Just as an investor-owned firm (such as Iogen with Goldman Sachs and Royal Dutch/Shell) can explore launching a cellulosic ethanol refinery, so could a group of agricultural producers explore cooperating to:
Shell has also invested in Canada's Iogen Corporation, whose patented technology uses enzymes to produce ethanol from straw, and is conducting extensive work at the Shell research centre in Amsterdam.
In 2004, the Iogen biorefinery was built in the suburbs of Canada's capital, Ottawa, thousands of miles from the wheat fields of the prairies but close to the nation's political decision makers.
Due to the staffing shortage Iogen, a Canadian biotechnology company incorporated in Idaho, is waiting to open a $500 million Idaho Falls plant, the first facility to produce cellulose ethanol on a large commercial scale.
With industrial biotech processes ready for deployment and production -- by companies such as Abengoa, Iogen, Broin, and Mascoma -- and currently available feedstock from agricultural residues, ethanol production could reach three times current levels within three to five years as ethanol from cellulose is added to the current biofuel technology mix," said Erickson.
A Canadian company called Iogen, a leader in the field, makes its ethanol from wheat straw.
Another important alternative fuel announcement came from VW and Shell with the revelation the two were teaming up with Canadian company Iogen to build a refinery in Germany producing cellulose ethanol from crops on a commercial scale.
Molecular biologist Nancy Ho of Purdue University's Laboratory of Renewable Resources Engineering spent 20 years perfecting the method, which has been nonexclusively licensed to Canadian enzyme manufacturer Iogen to make ethanol in an environmentally friendly plant.
