TORONTO, June 16 /CNW/ - Energy Innovation Corp (EIC) will divert 16 million kilograms of coffee grounds from the Ontario waste stream and manufacture the grounds into biodiesel at their Oakville facility. After two years of R&D working with University of Toronto, EIC is the worlds first company to successfully capture and turn used coffee grounds into millions of liters of biodiesel.
"We're in crisis; Canada produced approximately 100 million litres of biodiesel last year. The 2011, 2% renewable fuel mandate calls for 560 million litres of biodiesel; where will that come from? Canada will import 83% of its renewable fuel from the US, while being America's largest supplier of dirty oil; shameful!" EIC CEO Jon Dwyer explained.
EIC solves the "Food For Fuel Crisis"; Canada is the worlds largest producer of flax; EIC also manufactures biodiesel from flax oil, creates human grade, gluten free, high protein flax flour and retails flax pellets internationally as tilapia & shrimp feed and domestically as cattle feed...all from one seed.
"We are taking Ontario agriculture and waste derived fuel to the world"
"We have met with Metrolinx and GTA transit fleets; we will significantly reduce GHG, CO2 and soot emissions in trains, busses, tractor trailers; any diesel engine without modification. Renewable fuel will provide quality employment for Canadians"Political figures will be present.
