Type of post: FLASH NEWS.

The Ontario Government is investing up to 8 M$ in Comet Biorefining through its Jobs and Prosperity Fund - Food and Beverage Growth Fund. The finance will help to establish the commercial-scale biorefinery of this company in Sarnia (Ontario, Canada) whose total investment amounts to 79.8 M$. The new production plant will create 82 new direct jobs and 158 new indirect jobs.
