Enerkem’s Mississippi MSW-to-ethanol plant remains stalled

In Mississippi, the proposed Enerkem MSW-to-ethanol plant in Pontotoc remains delayed, five years after the project was still announced. The company says it still has ever intention of developing the project that is based on its 10 million gallon per year facility in Edmonton, Alberta. Several million dollars have been invested in the project so far, with several permits ready to be issued and others awaiting application, but the company is still working to secure financing for the project. The Edmonton facility began commissioning in December but still hasn’t produced any fuel. Fuel production is expected to start this spring.
