Active Energy Gears Up For CoalSwitch

Active Energy announced it has received its first order for its CoalSwitch pellet from PacifiCorp, the largest grid operator in the Western U.S. The product will be burned at PacifiCorp’s Hunter Power coal plant in Utah as part of a coal/biomass co-firing demonstration being conducted by PacifiCorp.

Active Energy says it will produce the pellets at its new operation in Lumberton, NC.

Active Energy will be supplying up to 900 tonnes for delivery by June 14, 2021.

Work on the CoalSwitch plant is ongoing, with construction activity expected to increase early in 2021. Active Energy appointed Player Design to complete the engineering and construction. AEG and Player Design anticipate the commissioning of the first CoalSwitch Plant in the second quarter.

“We are delighted to have received our first order of CoalSwitch from PacifiCorp,” comments Michael Rowan, CEO of Active Energy. “We are on track with our business plan and we are working at great pace to commission the plant.”

Active Energy Group plc is a London-listed renewable energy company that says it has developed a proprietary technology which transforms low-cost biomass material into high-value green fuels, and that its patented product CoalSwitch is the world’s only drop-in biomass fuel that can be mixed at any ratio with coal or completely replace coal in existing coal-fired power stations without requiring plant modification.
