Fulcrum Bioenergy Closes Financing on 1st Project, Announces Location of the 2nd

8 November 2017 – Fulcrum Bioenergy closed financing on October 27th for their first commercial-scale MSW-to-fuels biorefinery. The Sierra Biofuels Plant near Reno, Nevada is expected to go online in the second half of 2018 with a capacity to produce 11 million gallons of fuel a year. On the heels of that long-awaited news, Fulcrum announced Chicago as the location of their second commercial-scale biorefinery. This is in line with Fulcrum’s announced plans to have eight facilities online by 2022. Facilities two through eight are expected to have a capacity three to six times greater than the first with an estimated total production of 300 million gallons per year. Fulcrum also announced that they expect the third project to be established on the West Coast, but were not more specific.
