In other news, Agilyx late last week announced a collaborative agreement with Monroe Energy to supply up to 2,500 bpd of Agilyx's synthetic feedstock, which will be refined into jet fuel for Delta Airlines. Monroe Energy is a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines. Agilyx derives the feedstock, Toxic Substances Control Act registered Agilyx Synthetic Crude Oil product, through a proprietary waste plastics recycling technology. Agilyx plans to locate a production facility near Monroe's refinery outside of Philadelphia. Agilyx, based in Tigard, Oregon, has Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson as an early investor. "This is a major step forward in the search for a cost effective low carbon aviation fuel," said Sir Richard. Dawn Gallagher, 1.732.531.4451,, (c) 2018 DTN. All rights reserved.
