The 90% transformation
How to solve the trash problem.
Enerkem converts waste into ethanol, with the lowest cost to produce compared to other ethanol production methods. Ethanol is the most popular of all biofuels. The ethanol consumption reached an all-time high of 102 billion litres in 2017.*
Biofuels from waste and residual biomass, such as Enerkem’s ethanol, provide alternative fuel sources that can gradually replace petroleum in the global fuel pool, and positively impact today’s most pressing energy and environmental issues. Enerkem’s ethanol is a renewable, non-toxic, water-soluble, highly biodegradable and clean burning fuel, used as a high octane oxygenate in gasoline.
The emergence of alternative fuel sources is driven by the need to reduce dependence on oil and greenhouse gas emissions as well as to increase energy diversity. The company builds partnerships and off-take relationships with industrial groups to implement biofuels production facilities worldwide and develop new products derived from the Enerkem platform.
