Wood waste to biodiesel project could come to Alberni Valley


In Canada, Eco Options CEO David Swan told the Alberni Valley city council that the company is looking at the Link Mill site in Port Alberni and other areas in the valley as possible biofuel project locations to convert wood waste to biofuel. The feedstock would be wood waste, branches, and stumps that would be converted into biodiesel that would then fuel the logging transport trucks in the area.

According to 933 The Peak, “Swan said the process will turn 90,000 tons of fiber into 27 million liters of fuel, and create 150 to 200 jobs including bringing in 50 people from the Alberta energy sector. Swan also told city council he’ll be looking for $170 million in community support through green bonds.”
