Ensyn supplies hospitals with cellulosic heating fuel

By Staff | November 24, 2014

Ensyn Corp. recently celebrated commissioning a renewable heating system at Memorial Hospital in North Conway, New Hampshire. The hospital’s heating system was converted from traditional petroleum fuels to Ensyn’s cellulosic renewable fuel oil (RFO).  Ensyn is supplying Memorial under a five-year, renewable contract that provides the delivery of 300,000 gallons of RFO per year.

Ensyn is producing RFO for Memorial at its 3 MMgy facility in Ontario, Canada. The fuel is liquid fuel produced from nonfood solid biomass including forest and mill residues. It directly displaces petroleum fuels in heating operations and is also a renewable feedstock for refineries for the production of gasoline and diesel.

The company has also signed a contract with Valley Regional Hospital in Claremont, New Hampshire, to supply RFO. That contract provides for the delivery of approximately 250,000 gallons of fuel per year for a renewable term of seven years. Deliveries are expected to begin in April.
