Enerkem’s CEO to Address the Benefits and Challenges of Advanced Fuels at Platts 4th Annual Cellulosic Ethanol and 2nd Generation Biofuels Conference
The US government has mandated the production of 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels by 2022, with 21 billion of these gallons required to qualify as advanced and cellulosic biofuels. These second generation biofuels are made from non-food feedstocks, such as municipal solid waste (MSW). Mr. Chornet will discuss how Enerkem is developing commercial projects that transform MSW into ethanol and other high-value products.
“MSW, as an abundant and inexpensive feedstock, is one of the most viable paths for building a domestic advanced biofuels industry. The use of end waste as feedstock after recycling, can increase energy security, create green jobs and decrease greenhouse gas emissions,” explained Mr. Chornet. “Enerkem’s technology is proven and we are currently developing commercial projects in
