Otto Simon supports Enerkem biofuel projects

Process engineering company Otto Simon has signed a direct agreement to support Enerkem, a Montreal-based waste-to-biofuels and advanced chemical company, in the design and construction of two biofuel projects in Canada and the US.

Each project will employ Enerkem’s thermo-chemical gasification and catalytic synthesis technology to convert diverse feedstocks, including sorted municipal solid waste, construction waste and treated wood, to produce methanol, ethanol and other speciality chemicals.
