Canada’s Enerkem announces new biofuel project partnership in China

Modular waste-to-biofuel system selected to address local waste challenges.

Enerkem Inc., a waste-to-biofuels and chemicals producer, has signed an agreement with Qingdao City Construction Investment Group Co. Ltd., to develop a project partnership to jointly build a municipal solid waste-to-biofuels facility in Qingdao, China.

In this new project partnership, Enerkem will license its exclusive technology to convert local urban waste from China into biofuels and chemicals.

“We are proud to combine forces with our esteemed partner in Qingdao to address local waste challenges and transform garbage into clean transportation fuels,” said Vincent Chornet, president and CEO of Enerkem. “Our modular waste-to-biofuels facilities can be replicated in any community as a competitive and sustainable alternative to incineration or landfilling.”

This latest deal follows two previous project partnerships confirmed by Enerkem during the Quebec government's trade mission in China earlier this month.

  1. Enerkem converts non-recyclable municipal solid waste into methanol, ethanol and other widely used chemical intermediates. Headquartered in Canada, Enerkem operates both a demonstration plant and a pilot facility in Quebec and is beginning operations at Enerkem Alberta Biofuels, its first full-scale commercial facility.
