About Innoventé Inc.
Innoventé produces electricity from organic waste and residues. We call this intelligent electricity because it does not require fossil fuels, nuclear fission products or disruption of the food chain.
At the heart of Innoventé's technologies is a patented drying process, developed over the last 10 years by the Research and Development Institute for the Agri-Environment (IRDA). This biological drying process (biodrying) allows Innoventé to extract water from waste and transform it into biofuel. In addition to intelligent electricity, Innoventé produces useful heat and fertilizers, and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Innoventé's intelligent electricity is produced locally from waste and residues located in the region where it operates. Innoventé is completing its first plant in St. Patrice, Quebec. The plant will produce 4.6 MW of electricity that will be sold to Hydro-Québec over a 25-year period. With this first plant, Innoventé launches its growth strategy and plans to replicate this project in Canada, the U.S. and across the world.
