Newfoundland to get new advanced biodiesel plant using wood

June 27, 2016 |

In Canada, unnamed investors have agreed to build a commercial-scale biodiesel facility in Botwood, Newfoundland that will use Tennessee-based Proton Power’s technology to produce the fuel from wood. The process burns the biomass to produce hydrogen that in turn is then used to produce biodiesel. The company’s 7.2 million gallon facility is set to come online this year and reportedly has a project portfolio lined up worth $1.5 billion. The scale of the proposed facility in Newfoundland hasn’t been announced but a previous tenant at the site where it will be located had rights to 280,000 cubic meters of timber.
