Cellulosic ethanol and chemicals from waste
Enerkem’s disruptive technology converts non-recyclable municipal solid waste (i.e. garbage) into cellulosic ethanol, methanol and other renewable chemicals, with better economics and greater sustainability than other technologies relying on fossil sources.
Enerkem operates both a demonstration plant and a pilot facility in Quebec and is beginning operations at Enerkem Alberta Biofuels, its first full-scale commercial facility. The company is developing several cellulosic ethanol and renewable chemicals production facilities in North America and globally, based on its modular manufacturing approach.
