Nova Scotia Project
The Nova Scotia Project is a 40 million litre/year (10 million gallon/year) low carbon fuel production facility being developed by Ensyn in central Nova Scotia. The facility would use wood residues as a feedstock to produce the low carbon fuel and it would be located adjacent to one of the province’s largest sawmills. The sawmill would be a strategic partner and primary feedstock provider for the project. Remaining feedstock would be sourced from local suppliers.
The site is strategically located in proximity to the Halifax Regional Municipality, which has significant offtake potential for heating fuel customers. In addition, the Port of Halifax allows for shipment of biocrude to international customers for refinery co-processing.
Low carbon fuel production presents a significant economic opportunity for the Province of Nova Scotia. The project would provide sustainable rural employment in support of local Nova Scotian communities and families. By sourcing local feedstock, the project would create a reliable economic outlet for sawmill by-products and would enhance the overall competitiveness of the forestry sector.
