Halifax firms receives $2.6M to turn waste into biofuel
Funding will support the construction of a demonstration facility outside Halifax.
HALIFAX — Sustane Technologies, a Halifax-based company that converts landfill waste into clean-burning fuel, is receiving $2.6 million from the federal government to build a new demonstration facility in Chester, NS.
The facility will transform solid landfill waste into recyclable materials and high-value fuels that burn cleaner than fossil fuels.
The project is being funded through Sustainable Development Technology Canada, which works with Canadian companies to bring early-stage clean technologies to market.
