About the Company
EnerPure is a Manitoba cleantech company founded on the idea that waste oil recycling should be accessible to all communities.
Todd Habicht founded the Company as HD-Petroleum in 2009, after recognizing the global potential of a technology brought to him by his grandfather, Barney Habicht. As CEO, Todd turned his grandfather’s prototype into a commercially proven technology, patent-protected in a dozen strategically selected countries around the world. Todd has assembled a strong team with diverse experience and skills to realize the full potential of the technology and transform his grandfather’s idea into a global reality.
HD-Petroleum became EnerPure in 2020 to better reflect the Company’s focus of being a cleantech energy company – a company that recycles waste petroleum into a clean source of fuel and energy while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
EnerPure’s regeneration technology uses a patented three-phase, closed-loop, continuous flow process to convert waste motor oil into a market-ready marine distillate fuel that exceeds the highest fuel standard now required for international ships under the IMO 2020 Fuel Standard. The standardized modular skid package design of the regeneration unit allows for reduced personnel requirements, reduces operational complexity, and allows for a short deployment schedule.
EnerPure is pleased to have received funding and support from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC). SDTC supports companies attempting to do extraordinary things by investing in innovative small and medium-sized businesses to help them grow into successful companies that help solve some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. https://www.sdtc.ca/en/
