FROM THE JANUARY ISSUE: For some biodiesel, cellulosic and biogas fuel producers, EPA’s quality assurance program is virtually a requirement. Corn ethanol has gotten a pass, but that could change as the industry diversifies. Only a few ethanol producers to date have paid much attention to the U.S. EPA’s quality assurance program for renewable identification numbers (RINs). EPA reports about 12 percent of all RINs are Q-RINs. The bulk of those are for D4 biomass-based diesel RINs, though not all.
FROM THE DECEMBER ISSUE: Corn oil maximization seems an obvious goal, but some DDGS feed markets prefer a higher oil content for better energy value. With corn distillers oil (CDO) selling for around 25 cents per pound and DDGS for a nickel per pound, extracting as much CDO as possible is the goal for many plants. CDO sales account for an important, albeit small, revenue stream, particularly when margins are thin. The ethanol industry’s corn oil heads to two markets: feed and biodiesel.
FROM THE NOVEMBER ISSUE: If an incremental buildup to E15 materializes, rail-to-truck transloading could compensate while terminals upgrade. The ethanol industry is working hard to build ethanol demand, focusing on retail infrastructure for E15 and flex fuels, which raises the question, is the rest of the system ready?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
