Toronto based CHAR Technologies announced that the City of Saint-Félicien in Québec has received CAD 2.8 million in government funding to support their waste heat recovery system from the forest biomass cogeneration plant in Saint-Félicien. The funding will be used to capture and distribute waste heat from the cogeneration plant in Saint-Félicien. The waste heat network will be used by the Centre de Valorisation de Biomass to dry and process biomass, which will be the feedstock supply for CHAR’s proposed HTP project. With the kick-off of the waste heat recovery system, the MRC Domaine-du-Roy can progress towards the CVB, with the CVB’s sequential approval being the next step to allow for the implementation of the CHAR facility.The waste-heat recovery system is an important first step in a larger staged approach towards CHAR’s previously announced and proposed build, own, operate proprietary high temperature pyrolysis system. The project would produce both biocarbon & green hydrogen to renewable natural gas in Saint-Félicien in Québec.The Government of Canada is contributing CAD 1.5 million under the Green Infrastructure Component of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The province of Québec is contribution CAD 1.3 million through the Electrification and Climate Change Fund while the municipality of Saint-Félicien is responsible for an additional CAD 1 million in funding for their project.CHAR Technologies Ltd. is a cleantech development and services company, specializing in organic waste pyrolysis and biocarbon development, custom equipment for industrial air and water treatment, and providing services in environmental management, site investigation and remediation, engineering, environmental compliance and resource efficiency.
