Study shows Nova Scotia has strong potential to develop biorefinery using fiber

In Canada, a new study shows Nova Scotia has strong potential to develop an innovative biorefinery that produces an alternative fuel from renewable sources of fiber. The liquid biofuel could be used to heat homes and power marine vessels, among other potential uses, according to a study done by Nova Scotia’s Innovation Hub, an industrial, applied-research initiative.

The study released January 26 shows that sufficient renewable fiber is generated in Nova Scotia to supply a commercial scale plant producing liquid biofuel. The fiber could come from byproducts produced by forestry operations, such as wood chips and tree bark, as well as from farm crops and municipal solid waste sources.
