Summary

Paradigm BioAviation to build an aviation fuel facility in Illinois
 
Paradigm BioAviation announced plans to build a $120 Million facility in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, designed to transform municipal solid waste into green electrical power and alternative liquid fuels for the transportation and aviation industries.
In the project’s first phase, a gasification plant to produce Syngas for use in producing electrical power will be built together with a Materials Recovery Facility, which will process recyclables and a pilot gas to liquids plant capable of handling 15 tons of garbage each day. Construction should start in 2014 for an entry into service in 2015. In a second phase a full scale Gas to Liquids plant will be built, which is projected to come online in 2017.
The plant will create over 700 direct, indirect and induced jobs, produce 5 MWhe of green electrical power and 8 million gallons of alternative liquid fuels.
The partners of the project include, together with PBA, the Illinois State University (for feedstock supply analysis, impact studies and quality control), Hensel Phelps Construction company (for design and construction), Florida and Southern Research Institute (for gasification equipment and gas to liquid technology).
