London, Ontario-based Comet Biorefining will construct a large-scale commercial biomass-derived-sugar facility at the TransAlta Energy Park.
According to the report, “the first-of-its-kind plant, to come online in 2018, will produce 60-million lbs of dextrose sugar per year from locally-sourced corn stover and wheat straw left in farm fields after harvest. The dextrose sugars will be transformed into bio-based products including organic and amino acids and bioplastics.”
Further, “The Montreal-based company is considering building another facility, expected to cost $500-million, and has been looking at sites in Sarnia-Lambton, Louisiana and the U.S. Midwest.”
