Coskata taps Fagen to engineer landmark advanced biofuels project in Alabama

June 26, 2011 |

In Illinois, Coskata announced today that it has issued a Letter of Intent with Fagen for engineering, procurement and construction services for the construction of its commercial cellulosic ethanol facility in Boligee, Alabama, that will be designed around the Coskata technology. Fagen and Harris Group will lead an EPC process that will include in its scope the project detailed design, procurement, construction and commissioning.

Coskata received a conditional commitment for a loan guarantee from the United States Department of Agriculture, and is working on the details that will be necessary to close the financing for the project.  The facility will convert sustainably harvested wood biomass into ethanol, a high-octane renewable fuel, and is expected to bring approximately 300 construction jobs and 700 direct and indirect jobs to Greene County, Alabama.
