Environmental benefits
  • The need for landfilling municipal solid waste is reduced. Therefore, methane emissions created from the decomposition of these materials at landfills are also avoided. Methane is 21 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas.
  • The biofuel produced at Enerkem’s facilities can reduce greenhouse gases by more than 60%, when its emissions are compared to those of gasoline.
  • The Enerkem process meets high air emission standards, is energy efficient, and minimizes water consumption as water is reused in a closed circuit.
