Greenbelt Resources Corp. has announced that it is commencing Phase 1 of the ‘California BioEthanol Project’, a three-phased initiative to convert Greenbelt’s testing facility into a commercial-scale production biorefinery.

Upon Phase 1 completion, the biorefinery will produce approximately 1.37 million lbs of protein concentrate and 75 000 gal./yr of bioethanol. Announced earlier this year, the total estimated investment for the California BioEthanol Project is US$3.25 million.

Darren Eng, CEO, Greenbelt, estimates the production facility will begin generating sales within the first eight weeks of commissioning. Phase 2 will add a second production system followed by Phase 3 that will expand the production capacity of Phase 1 and reduce cost of per gallon production. Phase 3 will more than double the bioethanol production to 200 000 gal./yr.
