From Trash to Treasure

Instead of sending garbage to a landfill, one company has found a unique way to turn it into fuels and chemicals. Through its proprietary technology, Enerkem has become a leading waste-to-biofuels company that converts material such as non-recyclable waste into clean transportation fuels and advanced chemicals. RBC has been able to support Enerkem’s growth with our full range of commercial financial services and our expertise in the cleantech sector (opens new window). From its first pilot plant in Sherbrooke, Enerkem now operates a commercial demonstration facility and has a number of large-scale projects under development, including a plant that will turn the City of Edmonton’s non-recyclable, non-compostable waste into next-generation biofuels. Companies like Enerkem exemplify our belief that firms that address sustainability issues today will be the leading companies of tomorrow.
