Green3Power, Vanderweil to build waste-to-fuel centre in Florida
US companies Green3Power Operations Inc (G3P) and Vanderweil Engineering will design and build together a USD-175-million (EUR 156m) waste-to-synthetic diesel fuel facility in Florida.
G3P’s parent BioPower Operations Corp (OTCQB:BOPO) announced the design, permitting, engineering, procurement and contractor deal on Tuesday. The plant, to be installed at St. Lucie County Solid Waste Management Facility, will use G3P's licensed gasification technology and the Fischer-Tropsch gas-to-fuel process.
G3P has concluded negotiations with the county on an agreement to develop a renewable energy gasification facility there and the plan will be presented to the County Commissioners on July 21. G3P is also ready with the site plan.
Once built, the waste-to-fuel plant will be converting about 1,000 tonnes of waste per day into ultra-low sulfur synthetic green No 2 diesel fuel. G3P will also be in charge of the operations and maintenance for 20 years with a 10-year extension option.
BioPower said it plans to develop waste to energy projects and waste remediation projects throughout the world.
