W2 Energy starts biofuel production at Cambridge plant

W2 Energy, Inc. announced it has started biofuel production at its plant in Cambridge, Ontario

W2 Energy, Inc. announced it has started biofuel production at its plant in Cambridge, Ontario. After evaluating test batches of biofuel, the company said the biofuel plant installation is expected to regularly generate fuel that meets fuel standards set by ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

In a previous update on its performance in the first quarter, W2 Energy said it plans to enhance its acquired technologies - including a coal water slurry system to clean liquid fuels - while dedicating itself to its fuel production business this year as part of its overall strategy.

"We are very excited now to be finally here and in the biofuel business," Michael McLaren, CEO of W2 Energy, said in a statement about the biofuels plant beginning operations. "Our current plan is to ramp up production with our system to its maximum of 7,500 liters of waste vegetable oil per day. Once we hit those targets we will expand the plant to double that capacity to 15,000 liters per day."
