Fulcrum BioEnergy taps Fluor for EPC work on 10 Mgy Sierra BioFuels project

September 8, 2010 |

In California, Fulcrum BioEnergy announced  a contract with a subsidiary of Fluor Corporation for engineering, procurement and construction activities that are now underway for the company’s Sierra BioFuels Plant (Sierra BioFuels).

The Sierra BioFuels project is a commercial-scale biorefinery that will convert post-sorted municipal solid waste (MSW) to ethanol when it enters operations in 2012. Located approximately 20 miles east of Reno, Nevada, Sierra BioFuels will convert approximately 90,000 tons of post- sorted MSW – the amount of trash produced by a city with a population of approximately 165,000 – into 10.5 million gallons of ethanol annually, meeting the demand for ethanol in the Reno market.
