With a helpful push from U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, Fulcrum Bioenergy now has federal EPA approval to begin producing and selling clean bio-fuel.
She said that makes the Storey County company the world’s first commercial-scale plant to convert household garbage into low cost, net-zero transportation fuel.
The Nevada Democrat said the permit will protect 120 permanent jobs and more than 1,000 indirect jobs in Nevada.
She said she stepped in after realizing that the permitting process had stalled for nearly five years.
“This action is critical to the success of commercializing our Sierra BioFuels Plant and an entirely new industry,” said Eric Pryor, CEO of Fulcrum BioEnergy.
He applauded Cortez Masto’s efforts to get the rulemaking process completed.
