Canada-based waste to biofuels producer Enerkem has been given an $80 million (€59 million) loan guarantee by the US Department of Agriculture to go towards building a new waste-to-biofuels project in Pontotoc, Mississippi. The new development will help to transform municipal solid waste from the north-east of the region into ethanol. The loan comes after the US Department of Energy gave $50 million towards the project at the end of 2009. The facility will be located on the Three Rivers landfill site and is anticipated to create 70 new jobs for locals.
