Varennes copy
Designed to produce biomethanol and bioethanol with non-recyclable waste
Locations: Rotterdam, The Netherlands and Varennes, Canada
Client: Enerkem
Duration: 2018
Scope: Engineering services for material handling, mechanical package, instrumentation and control, rotating equipment

Enerkem was planning to build an advanced gasification facility utilizing Enerkem’s proprietary technology to produce biomethanol and bioethanol with non-recyclable waste from institutional, commercial and industrial (ICI) and construction and demolition (C&D) sources.

The scope covered two biorefinery projects; one in Varennes, Canada and the other one in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The plants were designed to process 100,000 metric tons per year of waste to produce 69 million liters of biomethanol per year.
