Canada: Honeywell to Start RTP Facility Renewable Fuels from Forest Residuals
Envergent Technologies, a joint venture of Honeywell UOP and Ensyn, has begun construction on a renewable fuels facility in Port Cartier, Quebec.
Port Cartier/Canada – The project will incorporate Envergent’s proprietary RTP technology and will convert forest residues from local sources into liquid green fuel for institutional and industrial heating and as a renewable refinery feedstock for the production of low-carbon transportation fuels.
The Cote Nord project, which is being developed by Ensyn, Arbec Forest Products. and Groupe Remabec, is the first of several production plants under development by Ensyn and its partners.
The partners claim that the facility in Port Cartier will be completed late next year, and would convert 65,000 dry metric tons per year of forest residues to approximately 10 million gallons – or approximately 40 million liters – per year of RTP fuel.
