Together, the 14 partners have all the expertise needed to make the initiative a success, from waste collection to conversion to industrial plants and sales. The primary aim is to use Enerkem's proven conversion process to turn domestic and other waste into useful products.

Waste – An Abundant Ressource?

"Waste is an abundant resource and is a problem in many regions throughout the world. Waste is also a low cost unconventional feedstock that can be used to produce chemicals," adds Vincent Chornet, Enerkem's CEO. "The advantage of Enerkem's process is that it is fully compatible with the existing waste infrastructure". He added that making syngas and methanol from waste can deliver a sustainable cost-effective source of raw material for the chemical industry.
