Consolidated Biofuels Corp. recently announced it has received funding from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC). This funding will reportedly enable the build out of a plant located in Delta, British Columbia. The plant will produce polyols, which will be marketed by its green chemistry division Meadow Polymers.
“This funding continues our journey towards a sustainable, renewable and competitive business model that began a decade ago with our biodiesel production facility,” said Dan Treleaven, president. “The Meadow Polymer Division is a natural extension of this business.”
“We have partnered with Consolidated Biofuels on oilseed lipid-based polyol development for the past five or so years,” said Professor Jonathan Curtis from the University of Alberta Lipid Chemistry Group. “We are thrilled to see the product of our research and that of Dan Treleaven’s team at Meadow Polymers receive SDTC support towards commercial scale production. We look forward to working together with them to bring other innovative oleochemicals to market from the new plant.”
