CHAR announces biocarbon, RNG project in Quebec
The facility, on land reserved for CHAR by the City of Saint- Félicien, will produce approximately 5,000 tonnes per year of biocarbon and 250,000 GJ per year of RNG, for which the firm has received a letter of interest from the local natural gas utility.
The project will be phased, producing biocarbon for metallurgical and carbon credit generation first to allow for a more rapid deployment and shorter time to initial revenue.
The plant will leverage existing biomass handling and processing equipment operated for the Centre de Valorisation de la Biomasse du Domaine-du-Roy (CVB) in Saint- Félicien, allowing for ‘significant’ project capital savings. The CVB is a public-private consortium between the local municipality (the MRC du Domaine-du-Roy), the Société de Cogénération de Saint-Félicien (SCSF - owned by Greenleaf Power) and CharTech Solutions – CHAR’s 100% wholly-owned subsidiary.
“We are excited to join the collaborative and forward-looking MRC du Domaine-du-Roy through the CVB to deploy CharTech Solutions’ leading HTP system in Quebec and help position the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region as a leader in advanced biomass processes.”
Dino Mili of the SCSF commented: “We are very enthusiastic about the arrival of CharTech Solutions in Saint- Félicien, since this allows us to take an important step in the development of the biomass recovery project.”
