February 8, 2012 |

In Canada, the Quebec provincial government has invested $18 million in grants and $9 million in loans towards the Enerkem/GreenField Ethanol joint venture that will be fed by non-recyclable waste from institutional, commercial and industrial sectors.

Construction of the $90 million facility is expected to begin in the spring of 2013. Its waste-to-fuel portion will produce 40 million liters of ethanol per year while a second-generation cellulosic ethanol unit will bring total plant output up to 200 million liters per year.
