Our biorefinery process enables the use of municipal solid waste and other waste residues as unconventional and low-cost feedstocks for the production of biofuels and renewable chemicals. Enerkem’s technology is deployed through an exclusive process that converts non-recyclable waste into a pure synthesis gas (or syngas). This syngas is then converted into biofuels and other widely used chemicals using catalysts. In less than 5 minutes, waste destined to landfill becomes clean transportation fuels or renewable chemicals, which can then be used to form other value-added products. The Enerkem technology is therefore feedstock flexible and multiproduct.
With Enerkem’s biorefinery process, the carbon contained in mixed waste undergo a chemical recycling to be converted into methanol and ethanol – building blocks for olefins and acrylates. These chemical intermediates can then be used in countless applications. Constantly innovating, Enerkem is also developing chemical processes to “bolt-on” to its current waste-to-chemicals equipment in order to offer a broader range of renewable chemicals and transportation fuels.
