Through its Lacombe Biorefinery project, BioRefinex aims to commercialize patented thermal hydrolysis technology that transforms animal waste into organic fertilizer and feedstock for renewable natural gas (RNG) production. BioRefinex aims to deploy this technology via completion of engineering design, construction, and operation of a $46 million biorefinery. The Lacombe Biorefinery facility will be located in the Wolf Creek Industrial Park in Lacombe, Alberta, on a 12-acre site currently owned by BioRefinex. The facility will be a full-scale commercial operation designed to process 30,000 tonnes per year of animal waste, by-products, carcasses, and some potentially infectious waste such as Specified Risk Material (SRM) from the central Alberta corridor.
