They plan to Barge & rail their forest slash feedstocks, Yes, they could use their Bio-Diesel to run the Barges & trains. The Syn-Gas & Bio-oils are converted by their catalytic column to Bio-Gasoline, or Diesel or Jet fuels. They claim a production cost of $1.50/gal. The basic conversion; 1 ton biomass = 50 Gallons Bio-Gasoline + 1/3 ton Biochar. They also plan to build 400K Gal/yr Mini-Refineries. For a complete review of the current science & industry applications of Biochar please see my 2014 SSSA Biochar presentation.

A reconciling of both Gods' and mans' controlling hands. 2014 SSSA Presentation; Agricultural Geo-Engineering; Past, Present & Future. https://www.soils.org/files/am/ecosystems/kinght.pdf
