Enerkem GreenField Alberta Biofuels Awarded Permit to Build World's First Commercial Municipal Waste-to-Biofuels Facility
Date:5/20/2009

Plant enables City of Edmonton to increase its waste diversion rate from

60 to 90% and to produce an alternative transportation fuel

MONTREAL, May 20 /PRNewswire/ - Enerkem, a leading waste-to-biofuels technology company, today announced that Enerkem GreenField Alberta Biofuels (EGAB) has successfully completed the necessary environmental regulatory process and has been granted a permit to commence construction of a commercial facility to produce biofuels and green chemicals from sorted municipal solid waste in Edmonton, Alberta.

"This is North America's first unconditional commercial permit ever awarded to produce advanced biofuels from sorted municipal solid waste. This unprecedented project is set to change the dynamics of the waste and fuel industries by making waste - that would otherwise be landfilled - a resource for transportation fuels," said Vincent Chornet, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enerkem. "The City of Edmonton is a leader in waste management and is now pioneering this solution which is to become a model for cities around the globe"

The permit was granted by Alberta Environment under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act of the Province of Alberta. The regulatory process entails a series of meetings and studies as well as a consultation with the public. The project successfully met all required regulatory environmental standards including air emissions and was awarded a permit allowing for construction and operation.

In 2008, EGAB entered into a 25-year agreement with the City of Edmonton to build and operate a waste-to-biofuels facility on municipal land and to receive the City's sorted municipal solid waste as feedstock. The City of Edmonton will supply 100,000 tonnes of sorted municipal solid waste per year. The sorted municipal solid waste to be used is the end-waste after recycling and composting. These residues would otherwise be landfilled.
