Shell to have 40% interest in Enerkem Quebec project

January 11, 2021 |

In Canada, Shell will have a 40% interest in the plant using technology developed by Enerkem. Enerkem announced the project in December 2020, subject to finalization of commercial agreements.

The approximately C$875 million commercial-scale facility will be constructed in Varennes, Québec, and will produce low-carbon fuels and renewable chemicals products from non-recyclable waste using Enerkem’s proprietary technology. Commissioning of the first phase of the facility is scheduled for 2023. Critical investment in the plant comes from Shell, Enerkem, Suncor, Proman and Hydro-Québec, as well as from the Québec and Canadian governments.

Once completed, the plant will treat more than 200,000 metric tons of non-recyclable waste and wood waste per year with an annual production of nearly 125 million liters of low carbon fuels.
