Low Carbon Bio + Synthetic Fuels
Improved yields and quality of novel low carbon feedstock in BC and neighboring regions
Parkland has been working closely with BC pulp mills and a tall oil plant for the past 3 years to re-establish tall oil supply chains that will enable sales to the oil refining industry who need low carbon to comply with the BC low carbon fuel standard. But the current supply of crude tall oil is limited and contains contaminant levels that are often too high for refineries to readily accept in large quantities.
With funding from CICE, this project aims to solve these two problems by evaluating the potential of BC and Alberta mills to supply soap using a new soap skimming technology and optimizing the acidulation and separation efficiency of soap to tall oil conversion plants to improve yields and reduce contaminants.
