'Waste becomes fuels: Imagine using household garbage to fuel your car' by Lori Adamache from Enerkem Alberta Biofuels. October 23rd @ 5:30PM in ETLC 1-001
Enerkem Alberta Biofuels has partnered with the City of Edmonton to take the non-recyclable and non-compostable components of municipal solid waste (MSW) and convert them into biofuels: methanol and ethanol. The first commercial scale waste-to-biofuels facility by Enerkem will use technology tested at pilot and demonstration plants in Quebec. The presentation will provide an overview of the technology and process used to convert the MSW to valuable biofuels. The presentation will also provide a summary of the project, currently under construction at the Edmonton Waste Management Center.
