The Department of Energy would provide up to $19.98 million in financial assistance to Renewable Energy Institute International to design, construct, and operate an integrated biorefinery in Toledo, Ohio. Funds would be used to upgrade the Red Lion Bioenergy facility at the University of Toledo Energy Center. The funds would convert the existing thermochemical conversion system from 10 tons to 25 tons per day of woody biomass and rice hulls. Syngas, the result of thermochemical conversion would then be used to produce diesel fuel.
