Mr. Chornet’s vision and leadership ushered Enerkem during the transition towards the commercialization of its proprietary technology.

He raised C$435 million in various financings, and led the launch of Enerkem’s – and the world’s – first full-scale facility to turn non-recyclable municipal solid waste into transportation fuels and chemicals.

Under his expert guidance, Enerkem has established itself as an entrepreneurial leader in the field of advanced biofuels and green chemicals and grown to more than 200 employees.
