Enerkem, through its wholly-owned affiliate, Enerkem Corporation, is planning to build an ethanol bio-refinery plant in Mississippi, the US.
The project involves the construction of a waste-to-biofuels plant with a capacity to produce 10 million gallons per annum (MGPA) of ethanol.
The project will include the construction of a water treatment plant, a ethanol plant, a biofuel production facility, a pre-treatment center, a sorting facility and other related facilities, and the installation of solid waste recycling system.
Enerkem’s proprietary gasifier and gas cleaning/conditioning system breaks down feedstock and turns it into a synthetic gas (syngas) essentially composed of hydrogen, and carbon monoxide. This clean syngas is catalytically converted to methanol and subsequently to ethanol and biochemicals.
The process reduces the volume of waste ultimately going into a landfill by over 90% and at the same time extracts all useful energy from the waste used as feedstock.
Otto Simon Ltd has been appointed as design-build contractor.
In the fourth quarter of 2010, the project received all necessary approval.
In January 2011, Enerkem secured US$60 million DOA loan guarantee from US Department of Agriculture.
The project involves the construction of a waste-to-biofuels plant with a capacity to produce 10MGPA of ethanol in Pontotoc, Mississippi, the US.
The US$100 million project includes the following:
