Waste-to-energy plant in Canada receives funding

Cargill will be investing approximately C$36 million ($37.5 million) in a 1.4 MW waste-to-energy project at its High River beef processing facility in Alberta, including $10 million ($10.4 million) from the government of Canada.

The facility has a methane gas capture system that prevents release of the gas and uses it as fuel for the plant. The company expects 75 to 80 percent of the facility’s energy needs to come from a renewable source.

The government is funding the plant as part of its initiative to help meat processors reduce their environmental footprint.
