Canada-based Nexterra Systems Corp., a leading supplier of advanced biomass gasification systems, has announced receiving $7.7 million (Can.) in funding from the BC Bioenergy Network (BCBN), Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), the National Research Council Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) and Ethanol BC. The funding supports Nexterra’s recently announced program to commercialize a new high efficiency biomass power system in collaboration with GE Jenbacher and GE Energy. This advanced combined heat and power (CHP) system involves direct-firing syngas from Nexterra’s biomass gasification technology into GE’s Ecomagination-certified Jenbacher internal combustion engines. Pilot testing of the new CHP system will begin on schedule before the end of 2009. A first commercial demonstration project is expected to begin in early 2010.

Nexterra’s first generation gasification solutions are fully proven for displacing natural gas. Sales to date include projects at the University of South Carolina, Dockside Green, the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Lab, Kruger Products and Tolko Industries. Nexterra is actively commercializing new applications for generating electricity with General Electric and to produce renewable energy at wastewater treatment facilities with Andritz.
