Enerkem’s technology converts non-recyclable municipal solid waste (i.e. garbage) into clean fuels and renewable chemicals.
Enerkem Alberta Biofuels is the world’s first commercial biorefinery to use municipal solid waste to produce methanol and ethanol. This facility is the result of more than 10 years of efforts to scale up Enerkem’s technology from pilot and demonstration, to full commercial scale.
Enerkem’s Tim Cesarek gave this illuminating overview on the company’s progress towards further commercial installations, and milestones along the way, at ABLC Next in San Francisco.
