Advanced Biofuel Plant Planned to Open in 2022

Submitted by on May 10, 2018 – 3:12 pmNo Comment

(Catalan News)  Pioneering Canadian/French joint project aims to build recycling centre in Tarragona region for €250m  —  A Canadian company and a French firm are together planning to open a plant in Catalonia to turn solid urban waste into biofuel. The joint project involving Montreal-based firm Enerkem and the Suez utility company would see the new plant open in the southern town of El Morell, near Tarragona, under the name Ecoplanta Molecular Recycling Solutions. Permission to go ahead with the project was provided by the local authorities on Tuesday evening.

With an expected investment of more than 250 million euros, it is estimated that building the biomass plant would create some 700 jobs and, after it becomes operational, will directly and indirectly provide work for some 200 people. On Wednesday, the two companies applied to the Catalan authorities for the necessary environmental permits to go ahead with the project, which could be up and running in 2022.

Plant in Edmonton

Enerkem and Suez intend to build the advanced recycling plant for the commercial production of the environmentally friendly biofuel, green methanol. Enerkem currently has the patent for the innovative recycling process and already has one plant working in Edmonton, in Canada, with another awaiting permission to be built in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. The Morell plant would be the first of its kind in Spain.    READ MORE
