Cielo achieves first production of raw distillates at Alberta refinery

August 23, 2018 |

In Canada, Cielo Waste Solutions said it has achieved a milestone with the first production of raw distillate (renewable fuels) from its first commercial refinery in Aldersyde, Alberta that uses its patent-pending technology, which converts garbage-derived feedstocks, including all plastics, sorted municipal solid waste, wood and agriculture waste, tires and virtually any other cellulous waste product, into high grade renewable diesel.

Cielo has initiated its reactor, which has started the continuous flow process of generating raw distillate. As disclosed previously, the Company will be following a staggered approach to adding biomass by adding increasing amounts of feedstock until the optimal mix is achieved. It is expected that the optimal mix should be achieved over the coming weeks. Cielo anticipates that it will be able to announce confirmed production output volumes shortly after the optimal mix is reached. Once sufficient raw distillate is produced, the next stage will be to remove the sulphur and to separate the distillate into naphtha, kerosene and diesel. Shortly afterwards, Cielo anticipates it will be able to make its first sale of renewable fuels. Management believes that the timing for this is on track for early – mid fall of 2018.
