John Deere and Adage LLC, a bioenergy joint venture between Areva and Duke Energy, have announced an alliance to bring technology and process innovation to the fuel supply for sustainable woody biomass power projects. The first project to be developed as part of the alliance will be Adage’s proposed facility in Mason County, Wash., 80 miles west of Seattle.

The Mason County project will deploy Adage’s reference plant design, which employs advanced environmental controls to minimize air emissions and water usage. The proposed 55 megawatt facility will provide enough power for more than 40,000 homes. The $250 million initial investment will create more than 400 direct jobs during construction and more than 100 direct jobs during permanent operation. Adage plans to begin construction in late 2010.
