Hear from world’s first industrial waste-to-ethanol producer at Bioenergy International Canada expo & conference
The plant, in Edmonton, can produce 10 million gallons of 5% ethanol-petrol blend biofuel a year, providing enough fuel for 400,000 cars while also helping to meet renewable fuel standards set by the Canadian federal government and the province of Alberta.
The facility will also convert 100,000 tonnes of municipal waste into fuel each year, making a major contribution to Edmonton's target of diverting 90% of residential waste from landfill by 2013.
At the upcoming Bioenergy International Canada expo & conference Enerkem’s VP of government affairs and communications Marie-Hélène Labrie will explain how the company reached its goal of producing advanced biofuels and what the future holds for the plant, as well as the market in Canada.
Labrie joins other key speakers at the event including Bruce McEwen, Oil, gas and alternative energy division, Environment Canada, Government of Canada, Susan Carlisle, Manager of Alternative & Renewable Energy, Alberta Department of Energy, Paul Koehler, Vice President, Corporate Development, Pacific Ethanol, Matthew J. Griswold, President, Blendstar Terminals, Jim Ireland, President, Prairie BioGas, Michael Campbell, Director, Energy Systems Division, Logos Technologies, Greg Luli, VP of R&D, Cobalt Technologies, Scott Brittenham, CEO, Clean Energy Capital and many more.
Other topics covered at this event will include the Federal Renewable Fuels regulation, Alberta’s Renewable Fuel Standard, influences from the US regulatory environment, development in algal biofuels, producing cellulosic ethanol, turning waste into energy, securing project finance and investment, survival strategies from a key producer, ensuring international quality levels, the importance of plant design, the future of the biodiesel market in Canada, integrating biofuels into the supply chain and many more.
There are now nearly 30 ethanol and biodiesel plants across the country and the market is growing fast. The timing for this show couldn’t be better – the Canadian government has just finalised regulations that will require petrol to contain 5% ethanol starting on 15 December this year. As for the requirement for diesel to contain 2% biodiesel the date has not yet been set.
All this means it’s the perfect time for you and your organisation to learn and explore new markets and technologies as well as streamlining operations leading to cost savings.
Bioenergy International Canada expo & conference is now just around the corner on 28-29th September at the Coast Plaza Hotel in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
For those companies already – or looking to move into – producing, trading, supplying or working with the biofuels market it is the ideal opportunity to hear from 40 industry experts for only CA$990 for the two day conference and exhibition or CA$500 for just one day.
Last year’s event was in Montreal but this year the two day event has been strategically located in Alberta. The conference and exhibition, organised by market leading publication Biofuels International, brings together regulatory experts , as well as producers, oil majors, technology providers and analysts to discuss the market needs and discover the best way to meet these new targets and help drive the market forward.
As an added bonus visitors and delegates will have free access to the concurrent Tank Storage Canada expo & conference – focusing on storage terminal and tank farm developments throughout Canada and Northern America – www.tankstorageevents.com/tscanada
