Source : biofuels-news.com
In Canada, renewable energy producer Rentech is looking to develop a biomass plant in White River, Ontario that will produce jet fuel and create 400 fulltime jobs. "This will be the largest renewable clean jet fuel programme in the world", says the CEO of RenTech Hunt Ramsbottom. "This will be the first of its kind where the province, the federal government, local communities and a private company come together and this will be the first plant of its kind in the world." The company has been given the use of a 300 km plot north of Sault Ste. Marie by the province's Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry, where it will produce 85 million litres a year of bio-jet fuel from an annual supply of 1.1 million m3 of Crown timber. It will use a mixture of stumps and treetops, in addition to newly cut timber. The facility will also produce 43 million litres a year of renewable naphtha.
