In Canada, a C$285 million, first-of-its-kind, wheat-based, biofuels facility is being developed by Carbon Clean Energy Inc. The project aims to create low carbon intensity ethanol in response to Alberta’s new renewable fuel standards. Known as Project Wheatland, the state-of-the-art plant features an energy self-sufficient design that will also generate clean power from biogas production.
The project received C$5 million in funding from ERA. It is one of three announced through Emission Reductions Alberta’s new Partnership Intake Program, a referral-based initiative that allows organizations with rigorous, fair, and transparent processes to share projects for funding consideration. These three projects are estimated to deliver cumulative GHG reductions of 9 million tons by 2030—equivalent to the GHG emissions from 1.9 million passenger vehicles driven for one year.
