WHO WE ARE: ALTERNATIVE ENERGY PRODUCERS

Biodico specializes in Alternative Energy Solutions including the design, production, and operation of sustainable biorefineries.  Our core competency is biofuel/bioenergy production. We started our first commercial production facility in 2000 in Las Vegas.  Since the launch of that three million gallon per year facility we have developed facilities in Colorado, Texas, and Australia.  We have since patented the Modular Biodiesel Production technology that is used.  In 2003 we started work under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the US Navy, a partnership that continues fruitfully to this day at Naval Base Ventura County in California.

In 2010 it became clear that the commercial byproducts of biodiesel production (such as glycerin and inedible seed meal) are significant and we began to focus on energy added uses of these byproducts rather than just disposal methods.  Biodiesel Industries (the name we were founded under) became Biodico.

We are currently entering into production on our 5th commercial facility in Five Points, California and building our 6th  commercial biodiesel production facility on the Ventura County Naval Base.  These facilities are designed to be fully automated, minimizing manual labor and the potential for operator error.  The testing is also performed real time by near infrared spectroscopy and by EMF interphase detection.  The facilities are networked with each other so that they can share algorithms and learn from each other and with future facilities.

Biodico has a strong and ongoing commitment to internal R&D.  We also enjoy working on innovative projects with qualified partners and conducting feasibility studies for emerging markets and market sectors.

A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER

Biodico is thankful to our many great partners who have helped us to build successful projects and a thriving company over the years!  By combining efforts with others we have been able to explore new territory in exciting ways.

OUR PATHWAY TO INTEGRATE EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
Biodico utilizes advanced labortory R&D to identify new alternative energy solutions.

CRAWL – BENCH SCALE TESTING

Biodico follows a crawl, walk, run approach to implementing new alternative energy technologies.  This ensures that the integration of new technologies proceeds as smoothly as possible.  Bench scale testing in the laboratory or a controlled environment is the first step.

Learn More

Biodico tests all prototypes for newly discovered alternative energy technologies extensively to determine commercial production potential.

WALK – PROTOTYPE TESTING

The “walking” stage for Biodico is prototype scale testing.  Prototypes are built with the same basic process flow as a commercial plant but are generally 1-5% the scale of a commercial unit.  This allows Biodico to analyze the viability of the process flow and assess commercialization potential.

After R&D, Biodico utilizes full scale production and commercial implementation of new alternative energy solutions.

RUN – COMMERCIAL IMPLEMENTATION

After the viability of the process flow and the necessary efficiency for a prototype plant is proven, commercial implementation can occur.  Biodico is able to enter into commercialization of new technologies with confidence that they will perform as desired.  This crawl, walk, run approach has now been successfully implemented for 15 years.
