Strathcona District Heating Plant Sherwood Park, Alberta Example: Co-siting (Buildings) 9MW Natural gas heat 1MW bio heat Wood waste Agricultural pellets 15 About UsThe OpportunityWhy Alberta?
Example: Co-siting (Oil Refinery) 16 Shell's Pernis oil refinery Rotterdam, The Netherlands Heat and CO 2 Reduced emissions and additional revenue for industry partners 95 million m 3 of natural gas saved annually 580 greenhouses ~1,900 hectares ~400,000 tons CO 2 diverted per year About UsThe OpportunityWhy Alberta? 16
Between now and 2022 it is expected more than $170 billion will be invested in new bio-refineries Biofuels already account for 3% of total global fuel Biofuels market will double to $185 billion Bio-based chemicals will grow to $12 billion Alberta is blessed with abundant resources including agriculture and forestry biomasss, a perfect foundation on which to build a world-class bioenconomy. Why Alberta? Growth Market 17 About UsThe OpportunityWhy Alberta?
Arable land per capita (hectares) 8.5 million hectares arable land 11+ million hectares pasture/forage Abundant: Crops (Wheat, canola, barley, etc) Straw Manure Why Alberta? – Agricultural Feedstocks 18 About UsThe OpportunityWhy Alberta?
Forested land per capita (hectares) 38 million hectares forested land Abundant: Hardwood Softwood Logging residues Wood waste Why Alberta? – Forestry Feedstocks 19 About UsThe OpportunityWhy Alberta?
