  • Methes Energies International Ltd. (MEIL) Lands 1.2M Gallon Contract To Supply Biodiesel To U.S. Client 0 comments
    Feb 15, 2013 6:02 PM | about stocks: MEIL

    Methes Energies, the biodiesel logistics experts who have built a strong reputation supplying the hardware and services needed for companies to get a complete biodiesel production platform going at their business, reported today that the company's wholly owned, Methes Energies Canada subsidiary has inked a large contract with a U.S. client for 50 rail cars full of ASTM quality (American Society for Testing and Materials) biodiesel (B100 or 100% biodiesel).

    President and Co-Founder of MEIL, Nicholas Ng, was overjoyed at the 1.2M gallon delivery (slated to run over the coming weeks) and took a moment to reflect on the deal, which is the largest contract yet signed by the company for a short term delivery agreement. Not only does it show how successful MEIL's overall business has become, it is the start of a beautiful friendship and will most likely lead to additional deals in the future for more cars of the high-quality fuel.

    The buyer is clearly pleased and has agreed to pre-pay before the cars even leave MEIL's recently-commissioned, 23-employee, 13M gallons/year facility in Sombra, Ontario. The cars used for the job will come out of MEIL's own fleet of 28 cars that they use to move feedstock and finished products around, so the overall take on such contracts is very nice. When you stack this deal and its future potential against all the successfully executed installation projects that company has done in recent years, it's easy to see why markets are buzzing about MEIL's niche in the rapidly-expanding biodiesel sector.

    The company's revolutionary Denami 600 biodiesel processor is MEIL's flagship hardware offering and it represents the industry's first truly compact, self-contained, and state-of-the-art continuous-flow biodiesel processor (they also have a high-cap Denami 3000 model). This is the hardware that stands behind the company's own production footprint, and MEIL's most recently scheduled deployment of the hardware (Jan 8, 2013) will be a 1.3M gallons/year project with U.S. Energy Initiatives Corp. out of Santa Clarita, California, further cementing the company's powerful hardware offerings in domestic markets.

    The company's top-quality biodiesel qualifies for generating Renewable Fuel Standard 2 RINs (Renewable Identification Numbers) and, as previously stated by the company, MEIL is approved as a Foreign Renewable Fuel Producer by U.S. EPA regulators, making the product coming out of their Sombra facility (and the one over in Mississauga) fully eligible for U.S. export. This ability for the importer of MEIL biodiesel to generate RINs is a huge, immediate benefit to such contracts and it should spell mounting receptivity to the company's output as more buyers take note of the choice deal metrics available here. Investors should keep an ear to the ground as more deals of this sort will likely be coming out of MEIL in coming weeks/months, even as the rail cars for today's deal are leaving Ontario for their destination in the U.S.

    The company has a solid grasp on the target market, whether we are talking businesses that want to set up biodiesel production on-site, or large consumers looking for top-quality B100. MEIL has a stable footprint with their technology portfolio and manufacturing business, and an obvious ability to scale production up rapidly alongside rising demand makes them a force to be reckoned with on the production side.
