National biofuels mandates are a good way to get biofuels in the tanks of cars all over the country – but to date, petroleum companies have complied with these mandates by blending in green fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. Biofuels developers are still trying to pursue a true drop-in biofuel: that is, a fuel, made from biomass, that is chemically indistinguishable from petroleum-based fuel, and therefore directly compatible with currently used fuel infrastructure and engines. FORGE Hydrocarbons Corp. is developing a technology that transforms low-value fats, oils and greases into fuel. The objective of this project is to continue the accomplishments of the 200,000 litre per year pilot plant, which was supported by investments from Western Economic Development Canada and Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency Ltd. with the construction of a pre-commercial demonstration plant. The first of its kind in Canada, this lipid to hydrocarbon plant will produce renewable liquid hydrocarbons with a production capacity of 19 million litres per year.
