Feds invest over $1.4M in SixRing’s biofuels and bioproducts technology
September 7, 2022 By Canadian Biomass staff
The federal government is helping fund the scale-up of SixRing’s low-energy biomass conversion process that converts agricultural waste into renewable fuels and bioproducts.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada announced a $1.4-million investment in the Calgary biofuel company under the Agricultural Clean Technology program.
The funding will allow SixRing to significantly scale up production through research and development activities, as well as support testing of underused feedstock and technology optimization.
“This funding contribution will greatly assist in accelerating our SixRing crop-based feedstock research and process optimization,” Clay Purdy, CEO and chairman of SixRing Inc., said in a government news release. “We look forward to supporting our agricultural industry by generating new avenues of revenue from these crop waste products while allowing for greater access to low carbon-intensity, non-food-based sustainable fuels including SAF, diesel and gasoline.”
