BioEnergy - Fulcrum Sierra BioFuels Plant – Storey County, NV

Fulcrum BioEnergy’s first waste-to-fuels project, the Sierra BioFuels Plant, will be the nation’s first commercial-scale plant converting a municipal solid waste feedstock (or household garbage) into a renewable transportation fuel product. The Sierra Plant is located in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center (TRIC), approximately 20 miles east of Reno. CME is providing special inspection and materials testing services for a biorefinery structure, wastewater treatment and crystallizer system, air separation unit, and substation. Activities requiring oversight and testing include mass grading & foundation construction, reinforced concrete testing, structural steel welding & bolting, and post-installed anchorage.
