By enhancing their existing facility in Renfrew, Ensyn will have a fast-to-market option for delivery of their petroleum-replacement liquid biofuel produced from forest residues to heating oil customers in Quebec and Northeastern United States.
This investment will secure the 14 existing full time staff in Renfrew, as well as add 14 full-time positions as the plant is brought up to full production capacity. Ensyn's biofuels business is based on the conversion of wood and other non-food, cellulosic biomass to advanced cellulosic biofuels. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently approved Ensyn's Renfrew plant as a registered facility under the US Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS2) program.

This news is also a welcome boost to the region's forest industry and its nearly 1,900 jobs, supplying the plant with 1,000 trucks of wood materials month, and is expected to create a ripple effect and spinoffs to create or sustain another 1,500 jobs.

Together, it made the MDF plant uneconomical to run, and so they were forced to close it down until things improved.
Kofman said they learned they were approved at the end of last year, and immediately set out to reopen the plant. Ontario Energy Ministry Bob Chiarelli was on hand to personally offer his congratulations and best wishes to the reopened plant and the communities it will benefit. Laurentian Valley Mayor Jack Wilson said this is great news for the township and Renfrew County, and for the local lumber and logging industry.
