The project aims to conduct a feasibility study, namely a Class 5 engineering and design, to derisk the commercial development of a next generation biofuel facility in Nipigon, Ontario. The proposed facility converts wood residuals, wood wastes, and other low-value organic materials into high-value renewable natural gas (RNG) and biocarbon products (primarily biocoal), through High-Temperature Pyrolysis.  

The facility, which will be operated by a 51% Indigenous owned limited partnership between LNFMI and CHAR Technologies Ltd. (CHAR), is expected to begin operations in 2026, with an initial capacity of 500,000 GJ of RNG/year and 10,000 tonnes/yr of biocoal and is expected to reduce C02 emissions by 30,000 tonnes/yr.
