Ottawa, Ontario – A new biofuels plant is planned for High Level, Alberta that uses a process called fast pyrolysis to generate synthetic oil from agricultural and forestry biomass. The plant will be the largest of its kind in the world.
The announcement was made by the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA); the plant is part of a new partnership between Ensyn Technologies and Tolko Industries.
When completed, the new facility will be capable of processing 400 dry tonnes of biomass per day into 85,000,000 litres of pyrolysis oil annually. The process uses waste wood and byproducts.
