New Study Shows Novia Scotia Has ‘Strong Potential’ to Produce Advanced Biofuels

Submitted by on February 3, 2017 – 2:45 pmNo Comment

(Biofuels International)  A new study shows Nova Scotia has strong potential to develop an innovative biorefinery that produces an advanced biofuels from renewable sources of fibre. The liquid biofuel could be used to heat homes and power marine vessels, among other potential uses, according to a study done by Nova Scotia’s Innovation Hub, an industrial, applied-research initiative.

The study, which was recently released, shows that sufficient renewable fibre is generated in Nova Scotia to supply a commercial scale plant producing liquid biofuel. The fibre could come from by-products produced by forestry operations, such as wood chips and tree bark, as well as from farm crops and municipal solid waste sources.

“Developing a biofuel sector in our province will give us an innovative alternative to fossil fuels and spark economic growth,” said Lloyd Hines, Minister of Natural Resources.

“This is an exciting step toward increased competitiveness in the forest sector over the long term.”

The Innovation Hub, launched a year ago, is working to attract investors, identify markets, and help government develop supportive regulation.  READ MORE and MORE (Nova Scotia Canada)
