Enerkem Inc. intends to build, own, and operate a commercial next generation cellulosic ethanol plant capable of converting 100,000 Bone Dry Metric Tons (BDMT) of sorted Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) into 38 million litres of cellulosic ethanol. The Project will utilize thermochemical gasification process technology developed by Enerkem and is sited adjacent to the City of Edmonton Integrated Waste Management Centre (EWMC). In addition to producing ethanol the facility will have the capability to provide bio-methanol as a co-product.
