Illinois To Get Aviation Biofuel Plant

Feed Stock Will Be Municipal Solid Waste

A biofuel plant that will produce electricity and aviation fuel is slated to begin construction in 2014, according to Paradigm BioAviation, the company that plans to build the facility. Before construction on the $120 million project can begin, the EPA must sign off on the company's plan, and local zoning will need to be secured.

The plant will turn solid municipal waste into electricity and aviation fuel, the company says. The first phase of construction will encompass a materials recovery facility, which will process recyclables, a gasification plant which will produce fuel for the electrical generators, and a pilot gas-to-liquids plant with a capacity of processing 15 tons of garbage daily.

According to a report appearing in Biofuels Digest online, a full-scale gas-to-liquids plant would come online in 2017. When fully operational, the plant is expected to produce as many as 8 million gallons of liquid fuel each year, along with a substantial amount of "green" electricity. The plant is also expected to bring 700 direct, indirect, and induced jobs to the region.

Paradigm BioAviation has enlisted the support of Illinois State University as a partner to develop the plant. The school will analyze local feed stocks, as well as study the economic impact and sustainability of the plant, perform quality control testing, and eventually certify the liquid fuels.
