The Quebec government confirmed Wednesday that it is investing $284.45 million in Recyclage Carbone Varennes, in the Montérégie region, for both a biofuel and green hydrogen production plant. An additional contribution from Investissement Québec is expected to bring the total amount invested by the government to $364.45 million. Partners Shell, Suncor and Proman are also slated to invest in the project. …Economy Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon states the state-of-the-art equipment will allow Quebec to develop expertise in fields like green hydrogen production, maximize the biorefinery’s production yields and reduce its carbon footprint. The biofuel will be produced from materials composed of forest residues, as well as non-recyclable and non-compostable waste from sorting centres.
