In Missouri, CleanTech Biofuels announced an agreement with Fiberight to install its demonstration vessel at Fiberight’s cellulosic ethanol pilot plant in Lawrenceville, Va. This combination of CleanTech’s patented Biomass Recovery Process and Fiberight’s Targeted Fuel Extraction process will create a fully-integrated MSW to cellulosic ethanol demonstration plant. CleanTech’s vessel is expected to be installed and operational by the end of August, 2010. Once upgraded and installed, the vessel will produce cellulosic biomass feedstock for Fiberight’s Targeted Fuel Extraction process.
Under the terms of the agreement, Fiberight will finance the transfer of the vessel, equipment upgrade, and all operating costs associated with running the vessel at the Lawrenceville plant. Additionally, CleanTech will have access to biomass produced at the Lawrenceville plant for delivery to companies interested in testing it as feedstock in their conversion technologies.
