In Canada, Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. entered into a Supply of Services Agreement with Canadian Pacific, which entitles Cielo to receive scrap rail ties from CP to use as feedstock in the production of high-grade renewable fuels, in one of its future follow-on waste to energy green refineries.
Over the past approximately 18 months, Cielo has worked with CP to obtain a number of scrap rail ties for due diligence testing and has consistently achieved positive preliminary results. The agreement is effective as of October 31, 2019 and will expire on October 31, 2025. An Alberta-based location for the refinery is in the process of being finalized by the two parties.
“CP’s long-term commitment to supply Cielo with a minimum of 2,500,000 ties, over a five-year period, will allow us to move forward with the site selection to build our next green refinery, on a joint venture basis, with one of Renewable U Energy Inc.’s subsidiary companies. Based on the Agreement that we now have in place with CP, we have pivoted and are engineering this follow-on refinery to produce approximately 4,000 liters an hour of renewable naphtha, kerosene (aviation jet fuel) and high grade diesel, which is twice the scale of the refinery that we originally had planned on building,” said Don Allan, President and CEO of Cielo. “We are excited to be collaborating with CP to showcase to the world how our technology can provide an alternative solution to converting a difficult waste stream into high-grade renewable fuels.”
