CHAR Technologies Ltd. has announced that the City of Saint-Félicien, Québec, has received $CDN 2.8 million in government funding to support its waste heat recovery system from the forest biomass cogeneration plant in Saint-Félicien.
The waste-heat recovery system is an important first step in a larger staged approach towards CHAR’s previously announced and proposed build, own, operate (“BOO”) proprietary high temperature pyrolysis (“HTP”) system. The project would produce both biocarbon & green hydrogen to renewable natural gas (“RNG”) in Saint-Félicien, Québec.
The funding will be used to capture and distribute waste heat from the cogeneration plant in Saint-Félicien. The waste heat network will be used by the Centre de Valorisation de Biomass (“CVB”) to dry and process biomass, which will be the feedstock supply for CHAR’s proposed HTP project. With the kick-off of the waste heat recovery system, the MRC Domaine-du-Roy can progress towards the CVB, with the CVB’s sequential approval being the next step to allow for the implementation of the CHAR facility.
