An investment of $4.7 million is being made by the Alberta government into a Lethbridge facility that will convert farm waste into renewable fuel.

Agricultural waste as well as inedible fat and used cooking oil will be turned into biodiesel fuel and glycerine. The $28.6-million facility is poised to purchase about $375 million in feedstock from area farmers, generating about $500 million in revenue and supporting about 130 jobs.

The biodiesel that will be created will have about a third of petroleum diesel’s carbon intensity.
