Nov. 1, 2010, Des Plaines, IL – Envergent Technologies has been selected by High North BioResources Ltd. Partnership to perform detailed engineering for a project to convert wood residuals to renewable heat and electricity. The High North facility, to be built in Alberta, will produce pyrolysis oil for renewable heat and power generation and is projected to process 400 bone-dry tonnes/day of sawmill residuals to produce more than 20 million gallons/year of pyrolysis oil. The pyrolysis oil will be used to generate renewable electricity and heat for a co-located sawmill owned by Tolko Industries. The High North plant will also have the capability of producing a renewable resin ingredient that can be used in manufacturing wood panel products.

Envergent Technologies, which is a joint venture of Honeywell’s UOP and Ottawa-based Ensyn Corp., will perform a site assessment and identify strategies for integration with the Tolko sawmill, as well as provide equipment scoping, detailed engineering, a constructability analysis and a plant construction schedule for the Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) unit in support of High North’s plan for the facility. High North BioResources Limited Partnership was created by Tolko Industries and Ensyn Technologies.
