Shell Canada,Enerkem,Forge Hydrocarbons
Date: 2021-01-08
Shell Canada reports it will invest $350 million in a biofuel plant that is slated to open in Varennes, Quebec in 2023.

The plant -- which has received funding from Suncor Energy Inc., natural gas company Proman, Hydro-Quebec and the Quebec and federal governments -- will use Montreal-headquartered biofuels producer Enerkem Inc technology to process contaminated wood, construction and demolition leftovers, plastics, municipal and solid waste into methanol and ethanol. The plant will use hydrogen produced from hydroelectricity as its gasification agent.

As previously reported, Shell Canada's other biofuels partnership in Sombra, Ont., will convert waste fats and oil into renewable diesel using technology developed by Alberta-based Forge Hydrocarbons Corp.

The Canadian federal government estimates the global biodiesel market will grow to $44-billion by 2025.
