Enerkem’s proposed $200 million Twin Cities facility depends on new wastewater treatment plant

July 26, 2018 |

In Minnesota, Enerkem is in the engineering phase and working through the permitting process for the proposed $200 million MSW-to-ethanol plant outside of St. Paul in Inver Grove Heights where it is teaming with a local MSW management company to eventually produce twice as much ethanol annually as at its 10 million gallon per year Edmonton facility. The project could get the go ahead to start building in 2019 or 2020 with commissioning up to 24 months later, but key is the proposed $28 million wastewater treatment facility the Twin Cities metro area needs to build in order to supply the 1.6 million gallons of reclaimed water needed per day to process up to 1,500 tons of MSW into fuel.
