Enerkem breaks ground on waste-to-fuel plant
Published: September 2,2010
EDMONTON — Enerkem Inc., a waste-to-biofuels company, has broken ground for its municipal waste-to-biofuels facility with its partners, the City of Edmonton and the Government of Alberta.
Enerkem is looking to build a similar facility in Mississippi.
Enerkem’s advanced biofuels plant, which will be located in Edmonton, Alberta, is the world’s first industrial-scale biofuels project to use municipal solid waste as feedstock, according to the company. It will have an annual production capacity of 10 million gallons.
Using Enerkem’s proprietary clean technology, the facility will produce enough biofuels to fuel over 400,000 cars per year running on a five per cent ethanol blend. It will be built, owned and operated by Enerkem Alberta Biofuels, LP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enerkem.
The City of Edmonton and Enerkem Alberta Biofuels have signed a 25-year agreement to convert 100,000 tons of the city’s municipal solid waste into biofuels annually. The garbage to be used cannot be recycled or composted.
