Technip wins engineering deal on wood-to-gasoline biorefinery in Canada

CORE BioFuel has selected Technip to complete the construction engineering of their first wood-to-gasoline biorefinery in Canada, the companies said on Wednesday.

Canada-based CORE's green gasoline plant will produce 67 million liters/year of renewable gasoline and generate over 20 million liters/year of water from wood waste.

The announcement did not disclose the exact location of the refinery, though a prior CORE news release said the first such facility would be located in Canada.

“We are very excited about working with Technip to provide the next step in our commercialization process, which is to complete the engineering for our first plant,” said George Stanko, president of CORE BioFuel.

“Technip, as a leader in syngas plant design, is uniquely positioned to support CORE through the critical engineering phase of commercialization,” he continued.

“One of the critical factors in our selection of the Technip team is their established working relationship with key component suppliers such as Air Products and Chemicals and Energy Products of Idaho (now Outotec). Both firms have agreements with CORE for development of production equipment."
