Since 2004, the PDC has achieved the following milestones:
Nexterra has also tested several different types of waste feedstock at the PDC including wood chips, sawdust, bark, construction and demolition debris, and biosolids.
In 2010, Nexterra entered into a research collaboration agreement with UBC to explore the production of advanced chemicals and products from gasification. Nexterra continues to explore opportunities to use its core gasification and gas conditioning technologies as a platform for the development of high-value gases, fuels and chemicals from waste feedstocks.
