Soleco Energy project will use slow pyrolysis to transform plastic into diesel, a 3 million dollar investment to commission and operate for the plant. Ten full-time jobs will be created. 

Having already piloted several energy efficiency projects in the region, Christian Perron is one of the people behind this plant. “I was vice-president of Réseau environnement for four years. This led me to take part in various expert committees of the Quebec government on greenhouse gas emissions and energy recovery of residual materials. I have developed a network, an expertise and an understanding of the system and the needs in this field “, explained the general manager of Soleco Energy.

The goal of the Thetford Mines plant is to be a commercially viable pilot plant that customers and stakeholders will come to visit. All future technical training will take place at the Thetford Mines plant.
