According to Don Allan, president and CEO of Cielo, Dipper will be able to collect used motor oil and contaminated pails from the oil industry which will make an excellent feedstock for Cielo’s first commercial refinery.
“This and the announcement we made last week regarding the use of sawdust and wood shavings will show the world there are alternatives for waste to green diesel,” he added.
Last week Cielo signed a multi-year feedstock agreement with Parkland Chips Products which allows Cielo to purchase enough sawdust and wood shavings to supply 50-100% of the feedstock requirements for the refinery.
“We will continue to diversify our feedstock as we continue to work towards the construction of the first refinery,” concluded Allan.
