Fulcrum BioEnergy's Nevada waste-to-fuel project begins final construction phase

Fulcrum BioEnergy announced last week the start of construction for phase two of its first waste-to-fuel project, the Sierra BioFuels Plant, in Storey County, Nevada. Phase two, the biorefinery, will take MSW feedstock prepared at Sierra's Feedstock Processing Facility (FPF) — completed in 2016 during phase one — and process it into low-carbon transportation fuel. 

The overall Sierra BioFuels Plant, which is anticipated to convert approximately 175,000 tons of MSW into more than 10.5 million gallons of fuel annually, is slated to begin operations in Q1 of 2020.
