Cielo advances construction of refinery

Cielo Waste Solutions Corp. (Cielo or the company) has hired Kwik-Fab Energy Services to dismantle the company’s demonstration plant in Red Deer, AB. and transport it 200 km south to LynCorp Manufacturing’s state-of-the-art fabrication shop in Aldersyde, AB. LynCorp will then be making the necessary modifications to convert the 50 l/hr batch process demonstration plant into a 350 l/hr continuous flow refinery that will be capable of producing high grade renewable diesel. Once the modifications are complete, the equipment will be transported a further 5 km south to Cielo’s recently acquired property in High River, AB, where the idle biodiesel facility will be converted into one of the world’s greenest high grade renewable fuel refinery that will use garbage-derived feedstocks such as sorted municipal waste, plastics, wood waste, tires, agriculture wastes and other cellulous materials as feedstocks, some of which will have negative acquisition costs.

Cielo also announces that, having recently received its Development Permit from the MD of Foothills #31, the company has now applied for the more complex building permit from the Government Of Alberta. Cielo is now working closely with the government’s representatives, who are assisting the company in moving the approval process forward.

Cielo’s President and CEO, Don Allan, stated, “This is the real kick off for construction. While our demonstration plant has validated that our catalysts and feedstocks will be able to produce high grade renewable diesel, it is now time to implement the changes to the plant that will facilitate us being able to start commercial production. Once we validate that we can produce high grade renewable diesel on a continuous flow basis, we will scale up the size of our refineries and build multiple modular refineries offsetting landfills and other feedstock supplies.”
